Getting Married In San Diego?

April 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 137

Get inspired by this seaside paradise and build your wedding decor around one of these four themes giving your wedding flowers San Diego style.

Beach Theme

Many brides have chosen a beach theme for their wedding, but that doesn't mean your special day overlooking the Pacific can't be one-of-a-kind. Skip the seashells and choose to incorporate wood into your floral designs instead. Ask your floral designer to decorate a large piece of driftwood with your favorite flowers to be used as a centerpiece. For your altar, use tall manzanitas branches draped with ribbon, crystals or dangling orchids. If you don't want to obstruct the view of the ocean, use smaller versions of these decorated branches as centerpieces or have guests tie paper wishes to each branch as they enter your ceremony. For a more subtle look, incorporate curly willow or kiwi branch into your floral designs, including boutonnieres for a masculine touch. Using any type of wood will add a fresh, earthy element to your beachy décor.

Flower Fest

Beyond the beach, San Diego is known for producing many beautiful flowers, the Flower Fields at Carlsbad being among one of its top attractions. Let this rainbow of a hillside be your guide. For an upscale garden party look, ask your florist to arrange various shades of hydrangea, garden roses and ranunculus in ceramic or glass containers. For a more relaxed feel use brightly colored wild flowers in galvanized steel or birch bark containers or mason jars. When it comes to your use of flowers, don't hold back. Incorporate them into your place-settings, altar, and aisle, even your hair. Have your guests toss petals on you and your betrothed as you make your way down the aisle.

Day at the Races

Opening Day at the Del Mar Race Track is another hallmark and would make a great theme for a wedding in Southern California. Have guys don their most dapper suit and ladies wear stylish hats. For centerpieces and other floral décor choose large flowers, like peony, spider mum and dahlia to balance the giant hats. Incorporate various styles and prints of hatboxes into your décor.

Urban Setting

San Diego might not be the biggest city in California, but it boasts an exciting downtown area equipped with several luxurious rooftop event venues, possibly more than any other city in the country. When combined with the country's best weather, the city becomes the perfect backdrop for a SD wedding. Go urban chic and keep décor simple but bold. Use square tables over round adorned with monochromatic florals in defined shapes. Don't be afraid to use black in your palette. Dress it up with china mums in mirrored vases surrounded by flickering candles. Capitalize on existing venue furniture and set up lounge areas in your reception.

While its amazing sandy beaches and nearly perfect weather are two of the biggest draws, there are many other exciting elements to San Diego County. Hopefully these ideas will get you started on your perfect wedding theme.
