Perfume your ceremony or reception site with a garland of sweetly scented lilies. The sturdy flowers are abundant in spring.
For a long space or a double-layer strand, have your florist wire several garlands (it's best done the day of the wedding). Hang lengths of up to 16 blooms each in sections; each swag shown at the left is an individual garland, as are the two vertical sections. Be sure to leave extra wire for hanging; you can hide this wire with wide satin bows. Lily pollen often stains; you may want to remove the yellow anthers.
