Our Decorations Come Guaranteed Sustainable
Cut flowers for wedding bouquets and decorations usually have not a great reputation with regard to carbon emissions. Travelling long distances in heavily refrigerated airplanes takes a serious toll on the environment.
In addition, many of the commercially grown flowers for wedding bouquets and decorations come from countries with a less than healthy human rights record where there are little or no restrictions on slave and child labour.
You can avoid these implications by marrying on Bornholm and choosing one of our wonderful florists. Due to the climate conditions on our beautiful wedding island, our gardeners are able to grow a huge variety of flowers that should suit any taste (or budget).
Your flowers will travel even less than an hour. And our children only come to smell the roses, not to slave on the fields.
Give Your Wedding a Common Thread with Flowers
It’s not only about the bridal bouquet and wreath. From flower girl and bridesmaids’ adornments to table decorations and the groom’s/best man lapel pins and boutonniers, you most likely would like your flower arrangements to carry a largely uniform look.
At the same time, you won’t want the decorations and embellishments to outperform the bride. Our professional florists and stylists will be able to give you advice, show you examples and ensure, that everything looks fabulous and seamlessly coordinated on your big day – without being overdone or overpowering.

Show Your Style with Flowers
Classic, romantic, modern, bohemian – maybe goth, geek or something really eccentric. Whatever your style, you can say it with flowers on your wedding day.
Your wedding decorations – whether it’s flowers, other ornaments or the right mixture of both – can easily make a statement about your story as a couple. Maybe until you have to make decisions about your wedding decorations, you’ve had no idea what kind of style you have – but know exactly what you like, and what not.
Our wedding planners in Wedding on the Rocks together with resident stylists and local florists would be delighted to give you a hand when you try to choose your wedding decorations. We are able to make suggestions, show you examples and get you in contact with the right suppliers. Everyone on Bornholm will do their outmost to make your wedding beautiful.

Get Ready for the Bridal Bouquet Toss
The tradition of the bridal bouquet can be dated back all the way the ancient Egyptians where the carrying of herbs and fragrant plants were aimed at warding off evil spirits and giving the bride good luck. Even today a traditional minded Danish bride might add a few stalks of wheat grain to her bridal bouquet for that very reason.
The luck, however, is not supposed to stay with the bride alone. To share some of her good fortune, some brides decide to toss their bouquet – or an exact replica of it. This will transfer some of her happiness to whoever is lucky enough to catch it. As you can see on our pictures, Bornholm has no strict rules on who can participate in the bridal bouquet toss.
However, if you love your bouquet so much that you can’t bear to part with it, ask our florists to arrange for an exact replica you can surrender to your wedding guests. For more information on bouquets and tossing, please contact our wedding planners on the form below.
You Don't Have to Say It with Flowers
While floral decorations can be stunningly beautiful, they might not bring tears of joy to everyone’s eyes. Allergies can lead to an unwelcome cacophony of sneezes right in the middle of your wedding ceremony. Besides, not everyone might smell the roses the same way you do.
Or maybe you think that floral decorations alone are just not enough and seek further inspiration? There is no law, especially in Denmark, that prescribes the use of flowers on your wedding day. You may do as you please. You marry, after all, in a country that has been at the forefront of design globally for more than a century.
Denmark, and especially Bornholm, has a large community of arts and crafts women and men with some truly remarkable ideas and craftsmanship. Also our wedding planners can contribute with their creativity to suit whatever budget you have in mind.
