1. Ribbon bouquets

If you’ve decided to go down the aisle with a bouquet, there are numerous alternatives to consider, ranging from color combinations to styles. The days of just being able to carry a bouquet with stems tightly wrapped in a gleaming satin ribbon are long gone. Florists have been getting creative, combining stunning, hand-dyed, loose ribbons with elegantly asymmetric flowers. A bouquet with a long ribbon is a lovely style that more and more brides are incorporating into their wedding day plans.

A romantic touch to bridal bouquets is the addition of trailing silk, satin, or velvet ribbon. With a variety of ribbons in different tints and textures, your bouquet will be elevated to a new level.

2. Ribbons Stationery

All of your wedding-related paper goods make up a stationery suite. Save the dates and invites, as well as thank you cards, answer cards, and other vital information, should all be included (like programs, travel information, and hotel options). Adding a touch of ribbon to your invites, ceremony programs, and day-of stationery is a wonderful way to incorporate your wedding colors into your day. That being said, the ribbon bow is arguably the most often utilized item in producing a beautiful wedding invitation.

6. Ribbon Backdrops

A ribbon is a terrific way to bring color and joy to your room, whether it’s behind the head table, the cake table, or the backdrop for your photo booth. Using lengths of ribbon strung from a frame, create a flowing background or chuppah for your wedding ceremony. This looks great both inside and out, and it can be used as a wedding dessert table or photo booth background at your reception site.
