Did you know there are multiple ways to use garland for wedding décor? Wedding garland is generally made up of greenery such as eucalyptus and leaves.  It can add so much to your wedding day.  There are many creative ways to use it for your big day.

Here are 8 ways to get the most out of your wedding garland.

#1 Use it as a table runner.  

Wedding garland is easy to set up and it is very affordable. It adds a polished and luxurious feel to any table.  It is also something that you can add to and DIY it. When you buy the garland most of the time it will be just the greens like eucalyptus and leaves. To add some color and make it match your color scheme you can add other flowers or accessories to it.  Many times, floral companies have party packs or small bundles of flowers that match your bouquets that you can add to the garland. This will help pull in the colors of your wedding bouquet to match the centerpieces of the tables.  Use candles as well and place them around the garland for a more romantic feel.

#2 Suspended above the tables. 

Hang the garland above the tables for the reception. It makes a statement and adds a little something extra to the reception. Just attach it to any light fixtures or rafters in the wedding venue. It is a cost-efficient way to make your wedding even more special.

#3 Hang garland from the bar.

If you want to add some decoration to your bar string some garland in front of the bar. This is an easy way to make the bar match the theme of your wedding as well as prettying it up.

#4 Use the garland on the backs of chairs. 

You can place the garland on the back of the bride and groom chairs. This will make the chairs look stand out and is an easy to show where you will be sitting.

#5 Line the aisle. 

Line both sides of the aisles with garland so people can see a clear aisle way. Instead of having flowers lined up by the aisles use garland.  Since garland comes already in a line it is simple and easy to place along the chairs.

#6 Wraparound welcome sign.

If you want to add some flair to your welcome sign add some garland around it. Also, add flowers that match your color scheme into the garland.  This is one of the first things that the guests see so why not make it pretty.

#7 On the ceremony arch.  

Garland is the perfect focal point for the arch. It is simple enough so that it doesn’t take away from the bride and groom, but it will add to the look of the arch. You can add curtains behind the garland as well for a softer look.  Also, not to mention how stunning it will look in pictures.

#8 Wrap it around a column or pole.

If your venue has columns or poles you want hidden, wrap wedding garland around them. It adds a romantic feel to the wedding and covers the plain columns or poles you want hidden. Wedding garland can be used in countless ways.  It is ideal for any wedding day and will go perfectly with all your decorations. Reminder: If you want to add a personal touch to the garland you can always place flowers that match your wedding theme in the garland to pull everything together!
