Popular Wedding Florals

While some couples actively seek eccentric decorative and stylistic choices when planning their reception décor, others are more hesitant and would rather stick to traditional choices. When working with more traditional couples with classic taste, here are some tried-and-true floral favorites you can pick for a timeless wedding look:

  • Roses- the classic floral symbol of love and the number one choice for most weddings, roses are often the go-to. To add a more modern twist on the longtime favorite, try using roses in full bloom rather than in their bud state, as seen more commonly throughout history
  • Orchids- Because of improvements in shipping logistics, orchids are no longer considered such a seasonal choice and are considered appropriate for weddings regardless of the season.
  • Tulips- Just like orchids, tulips are now available all year long as a result of more practical and less expensive shipping functionality. If your clients are looking to pick something symbolic, let them know that color counts when it comes to this particular bloom. Red tulips are meant to represent love, while white and yellow ones supposedly stand for hopeless romance.
  • Succulents- these are best for weddings that are taking place in sunny, arid climates.
  • Multiple blooms- Flowers that have more than one blossom on each individual stem are quickly becoming more popular. Check out lily of the valley or dendrobium orchids if you want to try this look!
