Choosing the Perfect Flowers for Your Wedding Theme
As you plan your wedding, there are many things to consider. One of these things is a wedding theme. Every wedding has a theme dictated by a season, color, era, or venue. Whichever theme you choose, it is important to get the right flowers as they help emphasize it. Flowers add beauty, color, and interest and can help you to create the wedding of your dreams. From centerpieces to bouquets, here’s how to choose flowers to fit your theme.
If you have a vintage wedding theme, go for pale pink and dark red flowers. Add a touch of gold by spraying gardenia leaves with gold color and placing them at the base of your bouquet. Get vintage vases and teapots and fill them with dahlias, roses, gardenias, celosia, peonies, and ranunculus.
When having a winter wedding, white should be your basic color. However, you can vary it with shades of cream, green, and ivory. Calla lilies are very popular for winter weddings but you can also use hydrangeas, delphiniums, and avalanche roses.
Polka Dot Wedding
A polka dot theme is a great way to add a playful element to a wedding. White and pink are popular color combinations for such weddings but duck egg and mint also work well. For a polka dot wedding theme, get a nosegay bouquet with many white blooms and a few bright pink roses. You can tie it with a plain white ribbon or a polka dot ribbon. Look for large polka dot teacups and fill them with roses to create centerpieces.
Flower arrangements and bouquets at beach weddings should be unstructured and relaxed to fit the style. Go for a natural and fresh bouquet with colors like yellow and green. Accessorize the flower arrangements with seashells glued to wires that can be tied together with the flower stems. Flowers that fit beach wedding themes include garden roses, waxflowers, veronicas, and eryngiums.
If you’re planning a spring wedding, choose anemones, delphiniums, ranunculus, peonies, and tulips for your bouquet and flower arrangements. These flowers fit your theme and come in many vibrant colors.
Hollywood is all about glitz and glamour. A Hollywood wedding theme deserves nothing but stunning flowers. Go for colors that enthrall and mesmerize. Red is an excellent choice as it matches the red carpet. Use scarlet roses and accessorize them with black feathers. You can even use part of a feather boa. Decorate each of the flowers with crystal head pins for added effect.
