Incorporating Flowers Throughout
There are lots of ways that you can include floral patterns and actual flowers into your reception staging ideas.

Just a quick visit to a local wedding store, hobby shop or other business that caters to wedding planning, and you will find all sorts of Milford reception staging ideas that you can use to your advantage.

  • Invitations & Stationary – You can incorporate flowers, either as artwork or pressed pieces of real blooms, into your wedding invitations, save the date cards, thank you cards, wedding programs, guest book and other related stationary items. Once you select your wedding colors that will be used at your ceremony and wedding reception in Milford, MA, you will be able to choose flowers that reflect and highlight your theme.
  • Reception Accessories – Other places where your floral theme can be used is within all of the accessories that will be a part of your reception staging ideas. Flowers wound around the handles of your wedding cake knife and serving tools, flower pedals scattered around gift tables, flower theme pens for signing the guest book and, of course, flowers all over in the patterns and scheme of your reception decorations. Centerpieces for guest tables, floral swags on your sweetheart table – the opportunities to decorate at the reception with flowers are endless.
  • The Wedding Cake – Another great area to carry your theme is into your wedding cake. Choose flowers that are in your wedding colors that have interesting shapes and options. Don’t just go with roses and carnations, really dig in and pick something unique. Other tips for Massachusetts brides with regard to the cake include creating a top tier to be cut and fed to each other, with beautifully decorated cupcakes below that fit your floral wedding theme. The cake stand with cupcakes below negates the need for cake cutting services, and allows you to get creative with multiple flavors.

  • Petals & Leaves – Scattering petals down the aisle, on top of tables, provided to guests to toss instead of rice or confetti… think about your color scheme and incorporate petals, leaves, fruit and other living (or plastic and silk versions) things into your decorative reception staging ideas.
