Whatever the reason for doing so, not using flowers to decorate is totally fine, and there are plenty of other beautiful things you can use to make your venue look amazing!

Here are 5 ideas for decorating your wedding venue without flowers… We’re sure your next friend getting married will want to do the same once she sees yours.

1. Candles

We love the idea of having candles at your wedding. In addition to providing an elegant aire and the most romantic lighting, they are also great to add warmth to the environment and, if possible, incorporate some interesting colors. We suggest you choose more powdery or neutral tones; The gray, blue and pink are great to add to the assembly of the tables. On the other hand, you can opt for more imposing styles in size if it is to decorate the religious ceremony or the ceremony.

3. Fruit

You can use fruit to decorate your wedding day in more ways than you can imagine… you can incorporate them into a very elegant table design, or else you can always add them to an invitation with textiles (table runners or tablecloths). If you like the idea, remember that you can use the same fruits as a gift for the guests and also as very original name tags. The red and citrus fruits work spectacularly.

4. Shells

It never hurts to experiment with different accessories, and believe it or not, it is not necessary to have a wedding on the beach! Remember that your wedding is the great moment to play with all the ideas that come to your mind, so we propose you to opt for a dynamic in which you can incorporate these marine ornaments. You can use them in their natural color, or else, bathing them in a metallic bath can allows you to have a very alternative stamp. If you marry in paradise, do not forget to play with the metal tones (silver, gold and copper), as this is how you can achieve an atmosphere full of elegance!

5. Gems and Stones

Gems have become very fashionable at weddings because they are a beautiful item to decorate with and at the same time an incredible gift for the guests. There are gems of different colors and for all tastes and there are many possibilities to use them as part of the decoration. How about a seating plan with the names of the guests written in precious gems? Or a gem with the name of each guest to mark their place at the table. The possibilities are endless!
