Perhaps one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning for brides is selecting their wedding flowers. From the ceremony to the reception, floral design can instantly transform a grass lawn or an empty hotel ballroom into an enchanting event space.
Once you select your wedding dress and bridesmaid dress colors, as well as your wedding theme and color scheme, you can meet with a florist to start planning your floral décor. Since many flowers and foliage are seasonal, it’s important to set a date – or at least have a general idea of your desired wedding season – before a meeting to make sure your flower professional can give the best recommendations in regards to the location and time of year that your wedding will take place.
Use the InsideWeddings.com gallery to discover flowers used by our past brides, which include some of the most popular wedding flowers: roses, lilies, peonies, and ranunculus. If you desire a white wedding bouquet, consider ivory garden roses dotted with stephanotis blossoms. Or if you’re going for a vibrant spring or summer palette, compose bouquets, boutonnieres, and wedding centerpieces with blush roses, pink peonies, or fuchsia orchids. Calla lily and lily of the valley bouquets are timeless and reminiscent of iconic brides such as Kate Middleton.
Some of our favorite ceremonies feature flower bouquets on the ends of church pews, rose petals lining an aisle runner, or a flower-embellished chuppah or ceremony structure. For boho brides, a flower crown makes the perfect accessory, and head wreaths made of greenery and rosebuds are also great for flower girls or bridesmaids. Reception flowers can adorn tables, chairs, chandeliers, and even cakes! No matter what your favorite flower is or how you’d like to decorate your wedding events, you’ll find all of the flower resources and vendors you’ll need on the Inside Weddings website.
