Wed­ding floristry is a sig­nif­i­cant cost item in prepa­ra­tion for the wed­ding. The arch, pre­sid­i­um, guest tables, pho­to zone can­not do with­out fresh flow­ers. Beau­ti­ful, of course, but the final amount can scare 🙂 Chan­fash­ion invites you to pay atten­tion to alter­na­tive decor options that will make your wed­ding dec­o­ra­tion more orig­i­nal and save your bud­get.

An impor­tant clar­i­fi­ca­tion: we are not cam­paign­ing to com­plete­ly aban­don fresh flow­ers in wed­ding dec­o­ra­tion, although this would be an inter­est­ing exper­i­ment 🙂 How­ev­er, we sug­gest that you con­sid­er oth­er options that can com­ple­ment floristry and par­tial­ly replace it.

Why should you think about dec­o­rat­ing a wed­ding with­out real flow­ers? Here are some rea­sons:

Bud­get sav­ings. Fresh flow­ers become a big expense when dec­o­rat­ing a wed­ding, espe­cial­ly when you use them in large quan­ti­ties, choose expen­sive vari­eties, or order out of sea­son. Alter­na­tive décor options can not only make your wed­ding decor more orig­i­nal, but also save you a lot of mon­ey.

Car­ing for the envi­ron­ment. Cut flow­ers do not last long. Just imag­ine how many plants will be need­ed to dec­o­rate the mag­nif­i­cent arch, pre­sid­i­um, guest tables and pho­to zone. Alter­na­tive decor ele­ments will help you take care of the envi­ron­ment.

Aller­gy. If you or your fiancé suf­fer from aller­gies, then dec­o­rat­ing an arch or pre­sid­i­um with fresh flow­ers is not the best idea. It is unlike­ly that you want to get pho­tos with a flushed face and watery eyes, and you def­i­nite­ly don’t want to suf­fer from pollen at such an impor­tant moment 🙂

Now let’s move on to alter­na­tive wed­ding decor ideas!


Can­dles in chic chan­de­liers and can­dle­sticks are often used to dec­o­rate wed­ding tables and the pre­sid­i­um of the new­ly­weds. We offer to make them a bright accent by paint­ing them in the palette of your wed­ding. You can also use scent­ed can­dles in some areas to give a spe­cial atmos­phere. But be care­ful with this: too strong odors can be dif­fi­cult to tol­er­ate, espe­cial­ly indoors.

Light bulbs and garlands

An irre­place­able ele­ment of decor for the evening! Light bulbs and lumi­nous gar­lands cre­ate the atmos­phere of a real fairy tale and look chic both in the pho­to and in life. This is a fair­ly sim­ple way to dec­o­rate the entire desired area and make it coher­ent with­out being sprayed into many small decor ele­ments.

Also, beau­ti­ful light bulbs can dec­o­rate an arch or back­drop for the pre­sid­i­um and dur­ing day­light hours, espe­cial­ly at an indus­tri­al wed­ding or a rus­tic cel­e­bra­tion.

Vegetables and fruits

Veg­eta­bles, fruits and berries will come in handy on the fes­tive table not only as a treat 🙂 Bright lemons and oth­er cit­rus fruits, water­mel­ons, pome­gran­ates and pump­kins will be a great dec­o­ra­tion on the wed­ding table. Espe­cial­ly this decor option is suit­able for an autumn wed­ding or a hol­i­day with Mediter­ranean motifs. Choose bright, large veg­eta­bles and fruits to dec­o­rate your wed­ding.


Trop­i­cal motifs are a great option for dec­o­rat­ing a sum­mer wed­ding. But exot­ic flow­ers can be very expen­sive in our lat­i­tudes, so it’s much eas­i­er to get by with trop­i­cal fruits, coconuts and palm or mon­stera leaves. And to add orig­i­nal­i­ty to the decor, you can paint mon­stera leaves in bright acid col­ors — it will just be “wow”!


Green­ery will per­fect­ly add splen­dor to the design of tables and arch­es, and suc­cu­lents will make the decor more orig­i­nal. Do you dare to exper­i­ment with a wed­ding bou­quet of green­ery? 🙂

The best wed­ding dec­o­ra­tors you will find in the Cat­a­log Chan­fash­ion!


To diver­si­fy the wed­ding design, use dif­fer­ent tex­tures of fab­rics and sur­faces. For exam­ple, a com­bi­na­tion of dark wood and vel­vet looks very lux­u­ri­ous, and a gas can­vas on a rough wood­en table will cre­ate an inter­est­ing con­trast.

Fab­rics and can­vas­es can be used not only in the design of tables: they will also won­der­ful­ly dec­o­rate an arch, a pho­to zone or a can­dy bar, mak­ing the loca­tion more com­plete.

dried flowers

If you are not afraid of out­dat­ed prej­u­dices, then use dried flow­ers in the design of your wed­ding. This vari­ant of floristry will look espe­cial­ly chic at a Boho-style wed­ding or in the style of hot coun­tries. Now there is a huge selec­tion of var­i­ous dried flow­ers, so you can cre­ate a vari­ety of com­po­si­tions for tables, arch­es and even a bridal bou­quet! In addi­tion, dried flow­ers retain their appear­ance much longer, do not require water and will not with­er under the hot sun — these “resis­tant sol­diers” have sol­id advan­tages 🙂

Per­haps, the marine theme will nev­er become out­dat­ed in the design of wed­dings! After all, how can you refuse a cer­e­mo­ny on the seashore and the atmos­phere of a fab­u­lous under­wa­ter world? If you were lucky enough to say the cov­et­ed “Yes!” to the sounds of the surf and the cry of seag­ulls, then in the design we advise you to replace the flow­ers with more inter­est­ing and atmos­pher­ic details: shells, pearls, imi­ta­tion of corals and starfish, “sea glass”. Such ele­ments will look more orig­i­nal and sup­port the desired style.


Not a sin­gle for­est wed­ding and Rus­tic cel­e­bra­tion can do with­out wood­en decor! Stumps will be excel­lent stands for can­dles and dried flower com­po­si­tions, processed saw cuts will replace plates for snacks and a can­dy bar, and you can make an unusu­al pho­to zone from logs.

Com­bine rough wood with flow­ing fab­rics and lace for an inter­est­ing con­trast.


Lux­u­ri­ous com­po­si­tions of feath­ers on the tables imme­di­ate­ly trans­fer you to the atmos­phere of The Great Gats­by. The best thing is if you like the style of the 20s of the last cen­tu­ry, under­ground par­ties of the era of pro­hi­bi­tion and lux­u­ri­ous recep­tions.

And small­er feath­ers will fit per­fect­ly into the Boho-chic style: they can be used not only in dec­o­rat­ing tables, but even in the bride’s hair­style and bou­quet 🙂


Bright rib­bons flut­ter­ing in the wind will add bright­ness, light­ness and a lit­tle naive romance to the wed­ding dec­o­ra­tion. They can be used on the chairs of guests in the wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny and ban­quet area, as a back­drop for the cake area, pre­sid­i­um or pho­to area, as well as hang­ing over tables. The main thing is to make sure that the length of the rib­bons is not too long and does not inter­fere with guests dur­ing din­ner.

For a Boho-style wed­ding, dream catch­ers sus­pend­ed from trees, com­ple­ment­ed by long rib­bons, are also suit­able.

Glass and transparent plastic

Trans­par­ent ele­ments made of glass and plas­tic are increas­ing­ly used in wed­ding dec­o­ra­tion. We only sup­port this trend: it looks very mod­ern and styl­ish! A trans­par­ent seat­ing stand, vas­es, dish­es and even chairs will add light­ness and con­cise­ness to the loca­tion with­out cre­at­ing visu­al noise. It will also be a great help for brighter ele­ments of wed­ding decor, because glass and plas­tic will not draw atten­tion to them­selves or “argue” with bright accents.

We espe­cial­ly rec­om­mend think­ing about this decor for brides who are plan­ning a wed­ding in the style of Min­i­mal­ism, Mod­ern, Botan­ic and Urban Chic 🙂

artificial scenery

The impres­sive view of large arti­fi­cial scenery draws all atten­tion to itself and makes the loca­tion more com­plete and com­plete. Now the trend is geo­met­ric shapes, unusu­al hang­ing dec­o­ra­tions and, of course, neon! A great choice if you like more mod­ern “urban” wed­ding styles such as Indus­tri­al, Urban and Mod­ern.


Paper fans, lanterns and even origa­mi can be an inter­est­ing addi­tion to your wed­ding decor. Col­ored paper cranes will look unusu­al: they can be used instead of seat­ing cards, com­ple­ment­ed with com­po­si­tions on tables, or even hung with gar­lands from the ceil­ing, writ­ing inspir­ing phras­es on the wings — such dec­o­ra­tion will add a flair of dreami­ness and airi­ness to the loca­tion.

Beautiful wedding location

Some wed­ding loca­tions are so beau­ti­ful that they require almost no addi­tion­al decor. For exam­ple, a seashore, an old manor or a mod­ern loft with its own decor. Choos­ing such a loca­tion for your wed­ding can help you save mon­ey: even if the rent itself is more expen­sive than oth­er options, because of the sav­ings on decor, this loca­tion will end up being cheap­er. Remem­ber this nuance when choos­ing a wed­ding loca­tion 🙂

A vessel

On the wed­ding table, dish­es can also become part of the decor, if you care­ful­ly con­sid­er her choice. Ele­gant serv­ing imme­di­ate­ly adds lux­u­ry to din­ner! If you want your dish­es to be styl­ish, you should dis­cuss with the restau­rant what cut­lery, glass­es and plates they plan to dis­play at the ban­quet. If their option does not suit you, then rent suit­able dish­es togeth­er with the dec­o­ra­tor.
