No wedding is ever complete without flowers. It simply is a must to have rows of bouquets full of colourful blooms. Choosing the right flowers, however, can be quite challenging. Taxonomists estimate that there are over 400,000 flowering plant species in the entire world; so yes, it can be tricky to make the right decision.
Fortunately, you wouldn’t have to worry about this anymore. My Wedding Concierge will help you pick out the best flowers for your wedding. Below are eight of our top choices:
Roses are a classic choice for weddings, and that’s for good reason. This flower is the perfect symbol for love. Apart from being an affordable choice, the rose is also a flexible flower in terms of colour. You can choose from three varieties: the typical hybrid tea rose, the charming spray rose, and the classic garden rose.
Go for hydrangea when you want a scentless shrub bloom that’s not so expensive. A simple arrangement of hydrangeas can fashion an attractive boutonniere. Another selling point of hydrangea is its variety in colour. Depending on the soil’s acid level, the hydrangea can produce green, burgundy, blue, pink, and white blooms.
If you like pastel colours, tulips are the right choice for you. There’s nothing more charming than the pink shade of a tulip. Do note that tulips can have vibrant shades of magenta and purple, too. Normally, you can choose from Dutch, French, and parrot tulips. In terms of symbolism, tulips are also appropriate for weddings, as it represents happy years ahead for the newlyweds.
Consider using gardenias for your bouquets and centrepieces. This fragrant flower has a unique charm that can truly be the star of your wedding. Florists normally offer large and miniature varieties of this bloom.
Peonies are also a perfect choice if you have the budget for it. This flower native to Asia has a wide head and a strong scent. Add the bright colours that come with this bloom and you finally have an ideal flower choice for your wedding.
