For this at-home wedding in the Virginia countryside, the couple decorated the doors of their ceremony church with two floral wreaths. The pretty accessories (which were made by the bride's sister!) of eucalyptus, boxwood, larkspur, peonies, and ranunculus, matched the garland that also adorned the wedding altar inside.

Wreaths can be used for a beautiful wedding ceremony altar backdrop. This palm front-covered one is perfect for a tropical destination wedding but you can also use flowers, leaves, or twigs depending on the style of your event.

Tell everyone where to go by putting something gorgeous at the entrance of your reception. This wreath—which is filled with white hydrangeas and white roses—looks especially great paired against this rustic bark backdrop.

The Escort Card Display

Make your escort card display do double duty as a statement backdrop. In order to recreate this look, have your florist (or do it yourself!) cover hoops with greenery and hang them from a ceiling or wall with an invisible fishing line. We love that this look is both modern and romantic thanks to the sleek shape and lush greens.

The Seating Chart

If you are choosing to do a seating chart instead, place the table assignments inside the wreath. We love the geometric strine pattern inside the green wreath.

Forget décor on the table when you can put it up above. In fact, we couldn't be more obsessed with this modern display of intertwined wreaths—it's a fresh modern approach to greenery décor at the reception.

Upgrade your seats by typing a mini wreath to the back of the newlyweds' chairs. It'll look great in your hundreds of photo ops—plus it'll tell all your guests where the guests of honor are seated.

We all know that a mini version of almost anything is adorable, and these mini-mini wreaths are no exception. These place cards add a special touch to each place setting, and we're sure your friends will enjoy taking them home as a wedding favor, too.

No matter if you're exiting by boat or in that groovy VW bus up above, you can always add a final touch of décor to your getaway ride. We love how this couple tied greenery wreaths to the top of their boat—it tied into the rest of the day's décor and also made for one stunning photo op!
