Wedding Garlands

Garlands are a perfect and highly versatile addition to your wedding decor. Use them on your wedding arch, drape them over chairs, hang them on tables or over doors and even on your getaway car! This gallery will give show you how to use the same flower to create 3 different garlands, each with a unique look. We have used a white chrysanthemum for our main flower, however these garlands can be adapted for any kind of flower.

Choose Flowers

Our first bouquet is created with only flowers. We chose green and white chrysanthemums along with pink carnations for a garland that feels soft and feminine.

Begin Garland

Begin by creating a bunch of three flowers. Think about placement — you are trying to create a line of flowers where each helps to cover the stem of the flower in front of it. Your flower stems should be about 3 inches long. Wrap your bundle tightly with floral tape.
