Wedding Flowers & Favours


We know some of our fabulous readers got engaged this year and we are here to help with some ideas. The first being your flowers and your favours on the night.

Flowers are a personal choice you either want them or you may not.  If you do want them you have to decide if you want fresh flowers or artifical.  I am going to show you pictures of flowers which I personally love.

Bridal Posy Cascade

I went to a local florist and spoke with one of their owners Claire and she was good enough to show me some of their wedding flowers. They are an award winning Irish wedding flower and plant specialists, Being Gold, Silver and Bronze medalists in Bloom for the last 6 years.

Firstly we have this stunning church entrance display which could be brought to your wedding  reception also. The colour’s can be done to suit your wedding.

Below is the Brides bouquet idea which is added to a podium after the church and all pictures are taken for everyone to see

Brides maids flowers are another important part of the day you could have all one colour or mix of colours. You could also add diamonds or a butterfly as seen below depending on your theme and colours.


They have three bridal packages Graceful €139  Chic €179 & Classy €299 which is very reasonable for your wedding flowers. Some prices are exceptionally high but remember these are only a small part of the day so budget to exactly what you want to spend on the flowers.

Button holes are also nice for the grooms men and for the parents of the bride and groom. They are a nice touch. You can contact the Flower Store via their website

Next up I have a few ideas for different wedding favours to have. We have all heard of Candy Carts well now there is a Candy Ferris Wheel which looks so good and doesn’t take up too much space. Candy Caterer’s Ferris wheel has 16 compartments for sweets  and they provide bags to scup the sweets into . The wheel can be colour coordinated to suit your theme. These are becoming very popular for weddings.

Now take a look at the Ferraro Roche love heart which would look amazing as your guests arrive to your drinks reception after the church.  Who doesn’t love Ferraro Roche.

Another favourite of mine is the Wedding Wish tree. Its such a nice way for friends and family to leave their well wishes for the couple. The tree comes with tags so that each guest can write a little message on and hang from the tree and then the bride and groom can keep all their lovely messages to look back at.

you can contact Candy Caterer on Facebook about the products featured and for some of their other products.
