Ceremony Arrangement Tutorials
Ceremony arrangements are a fabulous way to spruce up your venue! There are unlimited possibilities here. Two classic options are ceremony urns or a standard square arch. Hexagon and triangle archs are also very popular right now. If you want something out of the box you can use a metal grid and foam cages or iglus to create a unique design.
Floral hoop backdrops are an inexpensive but impressive option if you venue lets you hang decor from the ceiling. If you have a mantel or window sill in your background, you can use a long floral runner to give it life. In addition to large arrangements, you can decorate the chairs or pews at the end of the aisle to spread your floral design throughout the whole room!

Ceremony Arrangement Tips
- While your ceremony arrangements will have lots of photos they likely won't have many close up photos. Fill these arrangements with mostly large volume flowers to stretch your budget. Don't add small blooms like Ranunculus. These are gorgeous in a bouquet but unimpressive in an urn or arch.
- If you can't decide on the style of the ceremony arrangements then focus on what will be the best compliment to your venue. For an outdoor ceremony in the mountains, you might want two cages on the ground so as to not take away from the gorgeous scenery. A classic wedding chapel will be complimented by two classic urns. You can create an elaborate arrangement on a grid backdrop to fit a modern or industrial venue.
- If your venue is already stunning on its own, it's alright to skip the ceremony flowers and focus your budget elsewhere.
- Plan a way to repurpose your ceremony arrangements. Arch cages can be cut down and placed on the sweetheart table; urns can be moved to either side of the buffet table.
- Aisle chair or pew flowers are simple arrangements that don't take a lot of flowers. However, they can add up quickly if you are making several. To keep the cost down, skip every other row of chairs or pews. If needed, you can just decorate the first and last rows (4 arrangements total).
