I am loving these beautiful floral wreaths as shown on The Bride’s Guide – Martha Stewart Weddings. What a fabulous idea to have wreaths such as these hanging on the end of some of the pews in the Church which can then easily be moved to your reception venue and perhaps used to decorate the room by hanging on the back of some of the chairs or other suitable places – shown below decorating a beautiful window with the light flooding through. The examples below are shown using hydrangeas but adapt to the floral theme of your own wedding

Another idea is that if you have large pedestal arrangements in the Church ask your wedding planner or florist to move from the Church to your reception venue if possible whilst your guests are making their way to the reception – you could then use again to decorate an entrance or the top table – people will hardly notice and you will get to enjoy them all day!
If you are having a civil ceremony in the same venue – again, ask your wedding planner to move flowers from the ceremony room immediately after the ceremony and photos and use in the room where your wedding breakfast will be served
If its a Church wedding, share the flowers and the cost with other couples who may be marrying on the same day as you
