'Tis the season of gorgeous garlands and wonderful wreaths! Even though we use both of these pieces year-round, we definitely see a greater interest around the Holidays. So, we're sharing some of the best ways to use wreaths and garlands in winter weddings. 

Let's start with some fun ways to use wreaths.

Place a wreath (or a few) in the center of your table for a chic centerpiece. Finish by placing a candle in the center to add romantic lighting. Add similar greenery elements around your space to create a cohesive look. This simple yet stunning design is helpful in a pinch or for a minimalist moment.

This wreath design is similar to the picture above but more festive. The colored candles and berries bring a lovely pop of color. The added pinecones are perfect for winter. Customize this look more with ribbon, ornaments, or other theme-specific elements. 

Use wreaths to dress up Bride and Groom Chairs. Spruce up the look with whatever focal flowers and ribbons fit your style and theme.

Layer on extra greenery to customize the strands. Place focal flowers throughout the garland for extra pops of color and diverse texture. Or place bud vases on either side of the garland.

Use multiple strands of garland to create a full indoor arch. Like the last picture, add more flowers to match the rest of the florals and create a dynamic look.

Drape garland over all the surfaces. Lots of candles and delicate details create an intimate and romantic setting oozing with class. Going all out on the tables draws the eyes and allows the rest of the space to have less decor.

When placed together, wreaths and garlands are quite the iconic duo. Of course, on a mantel or above a fireplace is the classic display, but freshly using the pair can still harness the nostalgia while adding intrigue and memorability. 

In addition to these fun uses, remember the obvious! Hang wreaths on the door to your home, ceremony, or reception entrance. Wrap garlands down banisters or hang them for a fresh ceremony backdrop. The options are endless!
