Flowers can be used at a wedding not only in the bridal bouquet or in the bouquets that bridesmaids have, but also in floral arrangements and centerpieces, ceremony decorations, boutonnieres and corsages, and floral accessories.
Before mentioning a few words about all the arrangements that can be created with the help of flowers, let's speak a little about flower types that are appropriate for a wedding.
One cannot go wrong with roses, which are suitable for a modern wedding, but also for a classic one, where guests have to wear tuxedos and luxurious wedding gowns. Other flowers appropriate for both types of weddings (modern and classic) are romantic Majolica flowers, ivory tuberose, dusty miller, deep crimson, bright fuchsia, Calla lilies, combined with a lush greenery mix.
For an informal wedding, a happy couple can use roses as well, but other types of floral vases, not the ones that they would use in case of a formal wedding. For example, if they really want to amaze their guests, they could use some old-fashioned red glassware, that will house some lovely centerpieces made from red roses, green hydrangeas, and moss.
Now let's return and see what are the most popular flowers that can be used for bridal bouquets in 2012. According to our research, velvet-stemmed Tweedia, tea roses, Lisianthus buds and ranunculus are some of the most appreciated for a summer wedding. For a winter wedding, on the other hand, it seems that brides prefer tiny lillies, that are suitable for just about any bride in any setting, and fragrant handfuls of peonies, that could float on a tender foam of fresh white lillies.
Regarding centerpieces that can be made using flowers, these are the most popular blooms: baby’s breath, hydrangeas, phalaenopsis orchids, French tulips, all sorts of roses, Phlox trachelium and organic zinnias.
And for boutonnieres and corsages, it is recommended to use some artificial flowers, made from crepe, silk or satin, but also carnations and roses will do. When it comes to wedding flowers, the one that attracts all the attention of the wedding guests is the wedding bouquet, but the flowers worn by the groom and his guests are also very important, so pay attention to boutonnieres and corsages as well.
