France is known for romance. The look and feel of French-inspired weddings are the epitome of elegance and sophistication. Because of that, it’s a style that endures year after year for brides on their big day.
Some of the best blooms to bolster your romantic French chateau theme are sprigs of lavender, blushing pink primrose, soft white garden roses, and sweet little strings of greenery. To add a modern twist to your theme, add some bright, bold pops of color with bold pink peonies or dahlias.
Once you’ve picked the flowers you want, start with designing your bouquet and bridal party flowers, including boutonnieres for the gents. Other great ways to incorporate French-inspired florals around the venue include using delicate, small groupings to accent guest chairs and using low lying, minimal clear vases with short, full arrangements.
If you prefer provincial rustic French over chic and modern, try adding simple greenery or dried accents to place settings, bridal party floral crowns, and signage. These accents work any time of the year and can easily be incorporated into any season by simply changing the colors of the centerpiece blooms. Finish your rustic French theme with seasoned wood furniture pieces, raw linens, distressed whites, simple candles, and antique basin pitchers as vases for your floral table arrangements.
For those dreaming of an opulent French wedding, don’t be afraid to use bold statement pieces. When mixed in beautiful garden settings, they go well together and create a very high-end, elegant feel. Opulent throne-like chairs for the bride and groom, gilded flatware, stone and iron work, and of course, bountiful sprigs of French lavender. Finally, print your invites on wine labels and swap the rose petals for a traditional lavender toss for your grand French exit. Elements like these will come together to make your French wedding truly trés chic.
