When it comes to choosing wedding flowers you can often be overwhelmed with not just the choice but how to pick the best ones. They can be a huge part of your day, not just for the bridal party, and of course, the wedding bouquet itself. So here are the things to consider when picking wedding flowers and the five best wedding day flowers to consider for your wedding day.
Things to consider when picking wedding flowers
First of all, choosing flowers can be difficult and there are some things you need to think about to help you decide. Here are some of the considerations to think about.
The first thing you need to think about is the season. Some flowers are not available all year round or can be, but there will be an additional cost for them. When choosing flowers for your bouquet and your special day, it is always a good idea to check the seasons and the time of year you plan to get married. This can help you to narrow down what flowers you can pick and also get the best price.
Fresh or artificial
Another thing to think about is whether or not you want fresh or artificial wedding flowers for your special day. Artificial flowers have come a long way and look very realistic. Many brides are choosing artificial flowers as they can pick exactly what they want, the colours they want, and they are often better value for money. It is always worth looking at both options to see what is right for you.
Colour schemes and wedding themes
Another thing to think about is your colour scheme and wedding themes that you might be embracing. They can be a big part of your day and given a lot of decisions and the wedding flowers can be one of them. You may want flowers that are specific to summer or winter themes. Or perhaps you want to incorporate certain colours into your wedding bouquet or other flowers for your special day. Some flowers may not be available in certain colours, so it is worth doing some research to see what is available.
The five best wedding day flowers for your bouquet
Now that you have considered some of the main things that can help with your decisions there are some flowers that are popular for weddings. They not only look amazing but they are perfect for your wedding bouquet and often can facilitate colour schemes and themes. Here are five of the best wedding day flowers for your bouquet.
Roses are one of the most popular flowers to use in your wedding bouquet. You can get a variety of different types of roses as well as colours. Some florists can actually dye or paint on the colours that you want if you are after something specific. The rose is a symbol of love and purity which is why it is always a popular option for weddings.
Using peonies in your bouquet is often a popular option for Spring and Summer weddings. They are big blooms which often means you don’t need too many, and they also are a great option to be combined with other popular wedding flowers. They are usually available in a wide range of colours so you are bound to find a shade to suit your colour scheme or wedding theme. The flower is meant to symbolise good luck.
If you want a lighter bouquet that still looks very full then the hydrangea is an option to choose. You have huge blooms which again means you don’t need too many in a bouquet and they work very well with other flowers or with some green foliage. They resemble beating hearts in some people’s opinions and they symbolise gratitude and grace. They can also come in a variety of different colours so will suit most colour schemes and wedding themes.
Most tulips are available all year round and are seen as some of the most versatile wedding flowers to incorporate into your wedding bouquet. They are simplistic and minimal in appearance. You can get them in different colours and they are also a flower that works well with other blooms. A tulip is the symbol of deep love.
Finally, carnations are one of the most common flowers for a wedding bouquet but are still beautiful. The carnation is the symbol of love and they are an amazing flower to have in your bouquet with other blooms.
I hope this helps you when deciding on your wedding flowers.
