French-Themed Weddings That Will Transport You and Your Guests to the Countryside

Experience a French Country-themed wedding that whisks you away to the beautiful landscapes of the region. Picture your venue transformed into a centuries-old chateau amidst vineyards, where you can enjoy delicious Parisian cuisine on a lovely spring afternoon. At Rose Hill Weddings in Nashville, Tennessee, we invite you to a wedding filled with romance and rustic elegance, inspired by the timeless charm and beauty of France.

Install Dramatic Floral Arches Overlooking the Vineyard

Floral arches bring vibrant colors, beauty, and drama that perfectly match the French countryside’s charm. They become the center of attention during the ceremony and provide a luxurious backdrop for photos of the happy couple. Choose between bohemian rose blooms and pampas grass for an eclectic feel, or opt for blossoms and accent flowers that evoke fields of lavender. Complete the look with cascading greenery, a tribute to the lush grapevines found in French vineyards.

Coordinate Springtime Wedding Bouquets and Dresses

Whether the bride wears a classic white gown or opts for a different color, match spring blooms with all of the elegant outfits. Hydrangeas, roses, and peonies are ideal choices for a chic Parisian bouquet. Add stock flowers, brunia berries, and greenery like eucalyptus to add volume and complete the floral arrangement. Feel free to embrace bold colors if that’s your preference and it complements the dress.

Set Centerpieces on Outdoor Chateau Reception Tables

An outdoor wedding reception in the French sunshine is simply perfect with its beautiful surroundings, and luxurious floral centerpieces can make it even more special. Create a sky-like ambiance by using light blue tablecloths beneath vases filled with roses, dahlias, and sophisticated greenery like sword ferns. For added flair and contrast, include accent flowers such as blue thistle to bring drama and a meadow-like charm reminiscent of the French countryside.

Adorn Seating and Other Architectural Elements with Flowers

Make your venue feel vibrant and abundant by decorating seating, planters, table edges, and door frames with colorful flower arrangements; customized displays add a natural and lush energy. This is a great chance to include purple blooms that evoke the sprawling lavender fields of the serene French countryside, a signature feature of the region. You can use purple statice or baby’s breath as accent flowers to provide texture and fullness to these displays.

Decorate Parisian Cakes and Desserts with Fresh Blooms

During your French Country-themed wedding festivities, you can add a delightful element by decorating cakes and desserts with fresh and fragrant flowers. Another fun idea is to incorporate bicycle symbolism as a nod to the region’s popular mode of transport. Alternatively, strategically place blooming peony arrangements in colors that complement the desserts in the serving area. For a whimsical touch, serve pastel-toned macarons alongside vibrant blooms.
