Roses, lilies and orchids are great for a classic theme, keeping your flower options simple and streamlined will help you create this. Try and stick to a maximum of one to two colours.
Lilacs and dusty pinks roses, dusty miller and softer flowers such as dahlias, lisianthus and freesias. Adding beautiful filler flowers like lavender and wax flower will give depth to your arrangements. Adding lace to the bouquets and vases is a nice effect.
The ‘just picked’ look is great for rustic style. A variation of flowers can be used in this theme. Also keep in mind dried flower, billy button, native flowers, husks and sticks are great for texture and having the arrangements in tins and terracotta pots just adds to the effect. Bouquets can be tied with hessian or twine.
- Fairy Tale
Follow ideas from ‘Classic or ‘Vintage’. Add sparkles, feathers and jewels.
Any colour option can be used here, arrangements are unstructured. Dahlias, roses, hydrangea and hellebore flowers are beautiful and very full looking. By adding plant pots, plants such as: cyclamen, succulents, baby tears, African violets, lavender and even herbs gives a great outdoor effect.
- Beach Wedding
Most flowers are great for beach wedding. Just be careful not to use really delicate flowers such as hydrangeas as it can get quite windy on the beach and you do not want to lose the petals. Adding seashells and or sand to the vases gives a nice effect.
