Event Design 101: Ceremony Design

The ceremony; the single most important part of your wedding day. What does that moment look like to you? Are you surrounded by romantic draping? Is there a gorgeous arch of floral behind you? Whatever it may be, we are here to make that dream come to life. Our latest design series, Event Design 101, digs deeper into the custom services Life in Bloom offers such as draping, linens, lighting, custom artwork, and more.

The options are truly endless when it comes to your ceremony. The most common decor items to add to a ceremony are:

  • Aisle Runner
  • Arch/Chuppah
  • Focal Arrangements
  • Suspended Arrangement/Garland
  • Chair Decor
  • Petal/Garland Aisle
  • Candle Aisle

Do you picture any or all of these at your wedding? It is important to choose a frame or backdrop at the end of the aisle. This is the perfect spot for an arch/chuppah, draping, focal arrangements, boxwood wall, flower wall, etc. Highlighting the aisle creates that “wow” factor as you are walking down. This is where the aisle runner combined with chair decor, petals/garlands, and candles can really elevate your ceremony. Here are some examples of Life in Bloom ceremonies with these added decor elements:
