Do you envision your wedding with plenty of florals and greenery? Looking for vibrant cherry blossoms or a statement standalone tree? These things don’t just happen upon your venue (well, not typically) but thankfully artificial trees now look so good, your guests wouldn’t know the difference. Here’s how to dress your wedding with artificial trees.

How to Dress Your Wedding With Artificial Trees

We spoke to Susie Reid Thomas, Creative Director at Twilight Trees on how to use artificial trees to dress your wedding.
“Adding trees into a large space immediately adds an intimacy.” Says Susie.
“Twilight Trees have a wonderful way of bringing the outside in. No waste, no mess and incredibly realistic, faux is the way to go.” 
We’ve also noticed a trend in brides taking a more environmentally conscious approach to their weddings. Incorporating artificial trees that look just as good as the real thing, works perfectly for the more conscientious.
The biggest trends in artificial trees at weddings are lots of greenery complimented with wooden elements. Popular for Twilight Trees has been their TIG trees available in three varied sizes. They provide lots of green foliage to line your aisles, dress your venue and impress your guests

When speaking of the green collection, Susie says, “[it] is bold, natural, fresh and rustic all at the same time. It is a blank canvas and can be accessorised to fit with your own unique vision and colour scheme”.

Styling Trees in a Smaller Venue

“The beauty of using taller trees in a space with high ceilings is that whilst you have plenty of ‘air space’ you may still be restricted on floor space and our trees have a small footprint”, says Susie.
The prime example of using trees to fill a vast space would be the use of trees down the aisle as seen at The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding at Westminster Cathedral.
“The enormity of the space was immediately softened by the leaves and the solid lines of the cathedral echoed by the organic lines of the trunks,” Susie tells us.
Trees are also a fantastic way to create an aisle in an outdoor space and when using trees with dense leaves and blossom they can also draw in an open space and in effect, create boundaries.

Styling Trees at your Reception

Finally, we love the idea of having a show-stopper tree to add to the opulence of your wedding. If you’ve got the budget (£400 +VAT), a single, statement tree with a wraparound bar is a certified winner to impress your guests.
What’s more, there are natural looking LED trees to really light up the evening event beautifully and create the perfect atmosphere.
