Southern Ceremony Decor Idea: Magnolia Cross

December 13, 2013 | By | Comments (1)

Thank you kindly for your warm welcome on last week’s post! We are so glad to be here, and loved hearing what y’all would like to see more of in the weeks to come. Rest assured, etiquette, Southern wedding traditions, real weddings, gowns, and much more will be covered. Today, though, we’d love to start with a beautiful and simple ceremony decor option: the magnolia cross.

Christina at Events by Nouveau crafted this lovely and Southern addition to Lauren and Brett’s ceremony.  Incorporating natural elements unique to the land beneath the Mason-Dixon is an easy and often inexpensive way to add Southern flavor to your celebration. Aside from magnolia leaves and blooms, we love seeing peaches, peanuts, gardenias, palmetto fronds, and even Spanish moss used in interesting ways.
