Marriage to Ivy: faithful and pure love
“Bound up like ivy.
I am here breathing your breath
I am the ivy tied to your heart
I am crazy about you and this youth…”
These are the words of one of the most famous songs of the 1950s !
If you love the elegant weaves of this climbing plant, let’s find out together how you can create a wedding by pairingivy with hydrangeas and white roses.
Since ancient times, ivy has been associated with a symbol of purity and innocence, thanks to legends associating this plant with the deity Dionysus, who precisely represented carefreeness, harmlessness and amorous transport and prompted pairs of lovers to wrap themselves around each other. It is precisely from this image of bodies glimpsing into one that the ideology that this plant signifies strong, indissoluble and faithful love is born.
Ivy in a bridal bouquet is perfect! Nothing could be more classic, nothing more romantic. Paired with white roses and hydrangeas it appears in all its sinuous elegance. The froreal arrangement will always be surrounded by white, which will be the protagonist, and ivy will tie it all together with its gentle twists and graceful leaves. We can use large Art Nouveau bowls to decorate the focal frame of the ceremony, complementing it with a decoration with ivy cascades on the aisle chairs. Shall we talk about the tableau de mariage?…a large silver frame circled not only by the beautiful ivy, but also by large lanterns with candles and white roses.
The real star is found in the classic centerpieces…candelabras entirely surrounded and intertwined with this wonderful ivy. To complete it all, only one thing is missing…the Cake! A wonderful fruit cake surrounded by an ivy nest on the base could not be missed.
