How to Style Your Wedding Venue with Flowers

Whether your wedding style is minimalist, rustic boho, or a glam black-tie affair, there’s no doubt about it: you just can’t have a wedding without flowers! We don’t wish to sound overly dramatic, but flowers can really make or break your space. But not just any type of flowers: right now, it’s all about luxe artificial florals and foliage.

Not only are they more affordable than fresh flowers, but they’re in season all year round. They also don’t cause allergies, won’t perish or wilt, and will always look like the real thing. What’s not to love?

Whether you’re recently engaged or you’re just starting the wedding planning journey, Ivory Heart is here to help. Having styled many weddings around Melbourne, we know how to make an impact with artificial florals. Here’s our suggestions.

Bridal Table Runners

Candles + flowers: name a more iconic duo. All eyes will be on you and your bride tribe with a lush bridal table runner made from high quality silk and foliage. It’s the perfect accompaniment to your bridal table – don’t forget to include a few well-placed glass candles to create a romantic mood.


If your ceremony includes an arbour, there’s two ways you can decorate this prop with artificial flowers: you can choose a corner and create a pretty floral arrangement. Or, you can cover the entire frame with florals (this is extra effective if it’s a round arbour.) Drape a piece of blush linen or satin fabric over the arch for an added romantic effect..

Artifical Flowers + Plinths

Want to really make an entrance? If you’re having a church wedding, place large artificial flowers in antique urns on top of plinths of varying heights at the front of the aisle or alongside the pews. Another way to incorporate artificial flowers and plinths into your décor is to place them next to the bridal table. The more you use, the bigger the impact.

Table Centrepieces

Classic and timeless – but this time with a twist. A floral arrangement on top of tall tower stands exudes luxe and glamour. Hire in varying heights to add depth and dimension to your space. Available in gold, white or black to match your already existing décor. You could even place these unique props behind your bridal table.


Embrace your inner Kim Kardashian West with a stunning flower wall. Forever on-trend and makes for an amazing photo opp, guests will love posing and pouting in front of your 2+ metre floral wall (we personally think jasmine flowers look the prettiest.)
