One of the simplest ways to decorate your wedding ceremony is with a sprinkling of delicate, scented rose petals. While it's an obvious styling choice, rose petals can teeter on the edge of tacky if thought isn't given to the colour choices & placement of petals. (This might sound over the top, but google rose petal aisles to see what I mean!)
One of my favourite looks is a beautiful unstructured scattering of petals, as if they've been swept up by the wind and softly fallen on the ground. If you're decorating a set of stairs this natural look can be achieved by scattering petals in the corners of each step as if wind has gracefully swept the petals to each side. This also makes for a beautiful photograph in your wedding album to help reflect the mood of your wedding day.
if you're holding an indoor ceremony look for old textured concrete and dilapidated wood as a beautiful contrast to fresh rose petals.
For a more dramatic look use heaped piles of rose petals as seen in Givenchy Haute Couture SS09, or experiment with gradients and use white petals and soft apricots gradually faded into fuscia. (TIP - Avoid red rose petals which can be a difficult look to pull off. But if you're set on red, make sure you check out see Tara Moss's & Dr-berndt Sellheim's wedding for inspiration!)
