Wedding flowers have been a part of our wedding culture for quite some time. Unlike many other bridal trends; they endured and passed the test of time.
It’s often not an easy task to choose the perfect wedding flowers simply due to the sheer variety available.
To help set you on the right path, check out the following floral types popular in weddings:
Arguably the most popular wedding flower, roses earned their place on the top of the wedding flower pecking order thanks to their timelessness and romance.
The best part about roses is they’re available year round, so no matter where and when you’re getting married you can always trust in a rose. Even better, roses can be dyed to match any wedding colour scheme.
There are a few types of daisies, but the most breathtaking has to be Gerbera daisies.
Daisies are characterised by their colourful nature. They are statement flowers. If you want a bright, attractive wedding flower, then try considering daisies.
What comes to mind when you think of hydrangeas? This flower has a considerably larger flower head than most, resulting in the need for fewer flowers to make the magic happen.
Fun fact: If and when your hydrangeas start to wilt, you can submerge them in water to give them a fresh burst of life.
Tulips long have been the floral of choice for classic romantics. This flower is beautiful, to say the least.
One thing to keep in mind when considering tulips is that they have a reputation for being unpredictable after you cut them.
You really can’t appreciate the beauty of lilies until you come in contact with them at their purest. It’s hard to find someone to give a bad review of fresh lilies.
Lilies come in various shapes, sizes and colours. There’s something for everyone, from the conservative and picky to the flamboyant and loud among us.
Nicknamed the mum flower for obvious reasons, chrysanthemums have become more flamboyant in recent years.
When considering chrysanthemums, you should keep in mind that there are two varieties, the modern chrysanthemum and the wild variety.
Chrysanthemums come in a variety of colours that are guaranteed to give life to your bouquet.
Admittedly, carnations have a bad reputation for being associated with death. Notwithstanding, they make an undeniable statement when used in wedding bouquets.
There are different colours of carnations from white through purple all the way down to different shades of red. Pair them with roses for a traditional yet vibrant bouquet.
Based on their appearance, one might think gardenias were made specifically for Australian brides.
Gardenias are characterised by their invigorating fragrance, evergreen leaves and icy white bloom. They are fragile flowers, and over-handling can cause them to change colour sooner than later.
If you want to be spoilt with choice when picking out your wedding flowers, then a bouquet of orchids is perfect for you.
There are over 20,000 varieties of orchids. With this knowledge in hand, you can make a more educated decision when it comes to your wedding bouquet.
Poinsettias are perfect for Christmas weddings, and they are the stereotypical flower for December weddings.
Picture this for a moment: Soft white and yellow poinsettias sprinkled with a bit of Christmas magic. There’s no beating that.
Poinsettias are great for weddings of all shapes, sizes, and themes.
Last but not the least; we have the famous Narcissus white paper flower, a distinct flower that more than meets the eye.
Narcissus consist of a green stern with small white blooms resting gracefully atop it. This flower can be used predominantly in your bouquet or as a side piece to improve the overall look of your bouquet.
