Q I'm obsessed with sunflowers! How can we incorporate them into our flowers and styling?
A Nicola Moore says: Sunflowers are a bold, bright and beautiful floral to include in your wedding and can be incorporated into your venue styling with ease. Consider something simple, such as an accent on a welcome board, favour or aisle, or a decedent display like an overflowing centrepiece or archway. When it comes to complementary flowers, depending on your choice of style, there are several options to consider. The most popular is rustic; think sunflowers, eucalyptus, gypsophila, nude roses, daisies, forget me not blue, glass jars, and tea lights with burlap and lace trims on log slices. You could also opt for bright options such as cornflower blues, fuchsia pink roses, and orange gerberas, with lots of greenery in tall glass vases placed on mirrors. Alternatively, think autumnal options like peach roses, nude peonies, burgundy dahlias, rusty orange protea pin cushions, and greenery displayed on log slices with eucalyptus encircling.

Double up

Double up

Q We're on a budget and want to double up with our decorations – but are clueless how to do this. Can you help?
A Emma Pearson says: We always tell couples to double up when and where you can. You want your ceremony to look beautiful, but be mindful you're only in the that room for an hour, tops! One way to maximise your styling is to use your centrepieces down the aisle first, whether this is candlelight or florals – or both! If you have a backdrop for the all-important 'I dos', you can have this moved after the ceremony to another area, such as behind the top table or as a photo backdrop opportunity. Finally, any décor you have on your registrar table can be moved to form part, or all, of your décor for the top table during your wedding breakfast.
