Helping You Choose the Perfect Flowers For Your Event or Wedding Day
Your big day is a momentous occasion, so it’s understandable that every bride would want to get every detail right. Although flowers may seem a minor detail in the midst of choosing dresses and venues, but floral arrangements actually play a big part in every event or wedding day – from the bride’s bouquet to the table centrepieces and floral displays.
I have a love story with flowers… here is my guide to the flowers available all year round and in each of the four seasons, and some tips on how to can incorporate them into your special day.
Muscari come in a unique shade of bright blue. It has a short stem, so it less suitable for bouquets, but works well in floral arrangements. They look cute and sweet place in vases or jam jars to make a centrepiece for your tables. Muscari has a short vase life but the unusual bright colour makes them perfect for a blue, white, or pink colour theme.
Roses are a classic choice for any wedding flowers day – they’re an all-time favourite for many brides. The most natural way to use roses is a combination of all the different kinds in one bunch – baby, large-headed, and garden roses. They look exquisite when the sizes and colours blend together in a bouquet or table display.
In the Autumn months, there are several different types of berry available in an array of colours to use in your floral arrangements and bouquets – including green, orange, red, and brown. Hypericum, rubus, rose hips and snowberries are most popular in floral arrangements for a variety of weddings.
Hydgrangeas came in large bunches. They are extremely popular in white for classic weddings, but they also come in light blue, light pink, magenta, purple and even shades of green! Only available in the Autumn, the hydrangea has a long life span and can often be dried in vases or from fresh.
These delicate flowers are particularly popular because of their sweet fragrance. Because of their short stems, they, unfortunately, cannot be used in tall bouquets, but they are perfect in centrepieces, bridal bouquets or short vases. They have a vase life of approximately 4 days and come in lovely pastel colours, but also strong purple and red.
Peonies are the number one choice for lots of bridges to be! They do have a short window of availability, as they are only in bloom from the beginning of May until the end of July. These blooms are stunning when combined with garden roses, or can go it alone in a variety of stunning colours.
These flowers, associated with Wales, are as happy and cheerful as the Welsh themselves. They are one of the first flowers to bloom in the spring garden. Whilst beautiful in any colour, daffodils are not suitable to use in mixed bouquets as they spread poison liquids which can make other flowers wilt very quickly.
These perfumed flowers have a unique scent. They look like little bells hanging from the main stem. The classic colour of hyacinths are blue and purple but they can also come in shades of pink. While they are a stunning flower, those with hay fever or allergic reactions to flowers or plants are advised to stay away from this particular flower.
Anemonies are a classic spring flower. They can come in a number of colours – white, red, pink, and a unique blue/purple shade, each with a prominent black heart. A new variety of Anemonies come in stunning pastel colours and are extremely nice for wedding bouquets and arrangements mixed in with other spring flowers.
French tulips are the kind that pops into most people’s head when the word ‘tulip’ is mentioned. This classic variety has longer and stronger stems. Parrot tulips are identifiable by the wrinkled effect on their petals and are similar to double petal tulips, which are the national flower of The Netherlands.
More commonly known as baby’s breath, this beautiful flower has a light and airy appearance. When put into wedding bouquets, it looks exquisite on its own or as a filler between other flowers. The unusual choice of baby’s breath in pink hues as proven very popular for wedding flowers arrangements in recent months.
