What Type of flowers did you have for your wedding and why?

November 18th, 2009 | by admin |

I am trying to get ideas on wedding flowers. What type of flowers and colors are you using for your wedding and why?

My colors are hunter green, with chocolate and ivory accents. I am doing flowers that are a mix of greens, browns, ivory, and white to match colors.

Centerpieces will be green spider mums, kermit button mums, ivory roses, and chocolate artichokes with river rocks in them.

My bouquet will be a dark calla lily called Naomi, ivory roses, chartreuse zinnias, kermit button mums, and italian ruskus greenery.

I picked the flowers that matched my colors and also ones I really like-like the dahlias.
Bridesmaid bouquets are white dahlias and white tulips. Boutonnieres are white tulips for groomsmen and chartreuse zinnia for my FI. Moms will have white dahlias.

    for our January wedding, we have chosen to have a lot of gardenias. We chose these because they are highly fragrant and have something of an "old Hollywood" feel to them.

    Gerber daisies – they were inexpensive and bright/cheerful. We had a July wedding.

    Hi

    I’m having Calla Lillies wrapped in ribbon.
    Why – they are long and elegant and they suit my Colour scheme.

    I’m going to be having tulips mostly, because it’s a May wedding, and that’s what’s in season locally at the time.

    I originally planned on using kiwi-centered pale pink gerber daisies since that is one of my favorite flowers and suits our color scheme of pale pink, kiwi, white, and silver.
    For my own bouquet I considered many lasting alternatives, but once my mister and I decided on non-floral centerpieces, I decided there was no point to spending hundreds of dollars on flowers.
    Instead I am having a local artisan handcraft French beaded pale pink and silver miniature roses. They’re lasting, beautiful, and only a fraction of the cost of real flowers.

    My colors are tiffany blue, cream, and black accents. I am getting married next July. I am having minimal flowers but I am looking at Ivory Tulips (my favorite, even though they are out of season) for my bouquet and white Irises for the bridesmaids. I think that they really complement one another and just love the simple elegance of them. Additionally, we will be using gardenias to float in the centerpieces. I fell in love with these while looking for wedding flowers and just had to incorporate them! Other than that…still not totally decided.

    For a July wedding, our colours were lilac, pink, yellow and light teal – taken from the bridesmaids’ dresses which had little posies of flowers of those colours on the white embossed fabric.
    So I had a European handtied bouquet with a big mix of flowers in lilac, pink, yellow and white, with greenery and ribbons of those colours trailing down. There were roses, mums, carnations, alstromeria, stargazer lily, etc. just a beautiful mixture of flowers – really beautiful large bouquet. The four attendants had smaller versions of my bouquet.
    It just made everything bright, pretty, fresh and happy, having the variety of colours and types of flowers!

    I had purple and white Lisianthis. I chose Lisianthis because they look like roses but are far less expensive. And they are a true purple.

    I do love alstromeria, Peonies, and white lacy hydrengea. but not together.

    Roses are classic but you can make them look really awsome if you get a unique color and match it with something cool like bells ireland or something!

    Good luck
