Google+ Southern Spotting :: Magnolia Wreath - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

What could be more Southern than a magnolia wreath?

Sometimes, classic really is where it’s at, and this simple but gorgeous wreath proves that point, I think. I could picture these on the doors of your church, or perhaps on the end of every other pew down the aisle. See more from this lovely Savannah wedding, shot by Amanda and Brent with Millie Holloman Photography, here! And tell me: have you or would you use magnolias in your wedding decor?

    I absolutely love how classic and Southern magnolias are, not to mention their wonderful scent! We are using magnolia leaves to frame our wreaths on the doors to the chapel where we will be married, and we are also using magnolia leaves, branches and blossoms mixed with other blooms on the cake table. Our cake will have some magnolia-inspired sugar blossoms on it, too!

    I used the magnolia trees at our wedding site for inspiration. They were present in table settings and bouquettes. Some of our favorite pictures are of us surrounded by magnolia branches!

    I love the wreath! I am definitely considering using magnolia leaves but haven’t quite figured out how yet. The plantation at which we are getting married has several large magnolia trees on the property and I think mixing them into the decor would be great- and oh-so-southern.

    This is gorgeous! Just the subtle changes in the leaf colours makes this amazing!

    Definitely!! They are beautiful and so very southern! I already mentioned it to my florist :)

    The magnolia wreath was my very first floral “must have!” My wedding was in Davidson, NC and my florist accented the wreaths with small ivory roses – subtle, but the addition made the green and cream really pop on the doors to the sanctuary!

    Yes! Love this. Our reception is in an old Southern hotel where the wallpaper is full of magnolias… we are carrying through the motif in our cake with large sugar magnolia blossoms.
