If you’re both avid cooks, a colander provides the perfect vessel for your blooms. You can even match the colour of your blooms to the colander according to your colour theme. PHOTO: The Bloom Room

Use alternative vessels  to hold your blooms
“​Choose creative vessels that reflect your love story. For example, a couple who enjoy movie dates together can fill vintage coke bottles and popcorn boxes with baby’s breath and have guests take them away as wedding favours after the reception. For couples who love to cook, they can consider using colanders, which offer a great shape for their flowers, too.​” – Jaclyn Lim, co-founder & florist at The Bloom Room (www.downtheaisle.sg)

Create something sincere, and one that speaks to you
“Add personality and charm to your wedding with decor that comes from the heart. By wrapping a monogrammed label to any glass vase, you can add a personal touch to any floral centerpieces! Here, we put together sunset colored roses and peach alstroemeria, which makes a statement centerpiece when juxtaposed with monogrammed vases.” – Lelian Chew, co-founder & florist at The Floral Atelier (www.thefloralatelier.co)

Inject your occupations or hobbies into the arrangement
“Include personal touches such as your occupation or hobbies into your centrepieces, and leave a note next to it, for your guests to read. Here, I included stronger smelling herbs and fruits into this couple’s centrepieces in honour of the bride’s job as a chef.” – Josephine Lau, florist at Floral Magic (www.floralmagic.com.sg)
