Four Ways to Style Our Cathedral Windows

Today on the blog we’re highlighting our cathedral windows and four ways to style them!

It’s safe to say that our cathedral windows are one of our most signature and show-stopping pieces. We absolutely love our cathedrals and we are excited to dedicate an entire post to them!

First, let’s start with by talking about one of the most popular ways our brides have styled the cathedral windows: bohemian!

Key elements of bohemian styling:
-Pampas Grass
-Natural elements such as wicker and rattan items

Boho brides can add a little bohemian flair by incorporating pampas grass in their floral arrangements. Those wanting to go all out can exclusively use pampas as their floral element. Macramé pieces are also perfect to hang from the top of our cathedral windows.

Brides can use vintage bottles, or mason jars for floral arrangements. Or hang mason jars with tealights around the cathedrals for a fun and romantic addition to your rustic vibe!

Our final focus is styling our cathedral windows in a pared down, romantic style.

When it comes to romantic weddings florals are another key element. While usually with romantic florals more is better, we’re going for a more simple vibe. So florals in your wedding colors, strategically placed by or on the cathedral windows, make plenty impact!

Finally, a great way to add the romance is with romantic lighting. Whether you hang twinkle lights from the cathedral windows, surround it with candlelit lanterns, or choose to have a sunset ceremony; lighting can go a long way to create a romantic ambiance for your ceremony!
