Every type of flower has a distinctive look, and will add something different to your wedding. Therefore, it is important to choose flowers that really feel like you, as opposed to just using what it currently trendy or recommended by the florist. When you start investigating your options, you will find that there truly is a flower that suits the personality of each bride.
Roses are one of the most popular wedding flowers. And why not - they are available year round, come in an amazing array of colors, and are usually in a mid-range price point. Roses can also be used in so many ways that brides of all different styles will find them appealing. For the bride having a late spring wedding in a garden, there are pretty pink garden roses that look as lush as peonies. For something daintier, a nosegay of rosebuds is a delicate option. And roses are also a wonderful flower to use in combination with other blooms, which means that the possibilities are endless. For this reason, a rose is a good choice for almost any bride.
On the other hand, if your style leans towards the exotic or modern, then the stunning look of orchids will be right up your alley. Imagine a centerpiece created from bright green orchids submerged in water for a high style alternative to a traditional centerpiece. A potted pink orchid makes a great tabletopper for an East meets West reception. And other favorites, such as lady slipper orchids, make fantastic bouquets for the bride who prefers to carry something unique and stylish.
Old fashioned brides will love the romantic English novel feeling of sweetpeas. This is the type of flower that would be ideal for a bride who loves the traditional aspects of weddings: lace, pearl bridal jewelry, and romantic flowers. If you picture yourself gliding out of the pages of an Emily Bronte novel and down the aisle in a long sleeved bridal gown adorned with simple pearl jewelry, then sweetpeas are for you.
Brides whose style can be defined as classic elegance will love tulips for their weddings. The traditional Dutch tulip has a simplicity that works beautifully when bundled into a full bouquet. This is a great choice who like for things to look neat and orderly! If you are open to a more exotic or unexpected bouquet, consider some of the less well known varieties, such as parrot tulips.
The flowers that you carry for your wedding should really suit your personal sense of style. If you choose the type of flowers that really melt you heart, you can be sure that you will love them on your wedding day. Your bouquet and centerpieces are a very personal decision, so be sure to pick flowers that express who you are.
