I saw in a wedding magazine a white heart of flowers hung on a church door, i thought it looked quite nice and reasonably easy to make using an oasis shape and lotsa white roses etc... but when i search ebay to buy an oasis heart shaped wreath they all came up as funeral tributes... does this matter?

do u recon anybody would think that or is it all relative to the situation??? help me

thanks

    They look weddingy to me! Love the one with the white roses, very pretty. I think if you hang it with ribbon it stops it looking like a funeral tribute.

    I personally think they can look like funeral wreaths, how about a more modern alternative? I made this one for excitedbee

    You could decorate tig hearts with more flowers to give them a more modern twist.

    I've also made large beaded hearts:

    We had one but it was more wooden with a few flowers and had some tiny fairy lights in it for the night, looked lovely, will try and find a pic

    ETA not the greatest pic but the only one I have on me, you get the idea tho (we didnt have lights on in the day)

    I've made a couple - As long as you use wedding flowers rather than flowers normally used in funeral hearts such as chrystanths, carnations etc, and use some good quality ribbon rather than poly ribbon, it will look weddingy. This is one I did:-


    They will always come up as funeral tributes under the foam section if you Google as this is what they are normally used for. But don't let that put you off as florists also use other 'funeral' shapes for weddings such as coffin spray blocks are great for humongous top table arrangements!
