Alternatives to Flowers for Your Hyper-Allergenic Wedding

Flowers are a big decision for your Melbourne wedding day. But, if you're a bride-to-be with allergies, you may be wondering what alternatives there are to flowers for your wedding. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to add beauty and style to your big day without resorting to traditional blooms.

One option is to use greenery instead of flowers. This can be done in a number of ways, from using garlands as aisle decor to incorporating greenery into your centerpieces. Not only is this a more allergy-friendly option, but it can also be very stylish and modern.

You also may opt to use silk or fake flowers. These can look just as beautiful as the real thing, and you won't have to worry about any sneezing or itchiness on your big day. Fake flowers are becoming even more popular nowadays

Another possibility is to use fruit or vegetables in your floral arrangements. This is a great way to add some color and interest to your displays without using traditional flowers. Plus, it's a great way to incorporate some local, seasonal produce into your decor.

There are many businesses now that also source paper flowers. This is a fantastic option for those with allergies, as paper flowers won't trigger any reactions. You can find these businesses online or through your local wedding planning organization. Paper flowers also come in a variety of colors, so you can easily find a style that matches your wedding theme.

If you love the idea of fresh flowers but are worried about your allergies, talk to your florist about using hypoallergenic varieties in your arrangements. Many lovely options won't trigger your allergies, so you can have the best of both worlds.
