Thursday, September 27, 2012


Practically, almost any type of flower can be part of a bridal bouquet. The varieties and color are mind boggling and making up your mind  which flower to have on the special day can be tough!
Most of my friends are already married and I am sure they would recall the excitement of choosing a bouquet to go with their wedding dress.  Personally, I chose the lily for its color and fragrance.  What flowers did you get for your wedding day?

While wedding trends will change with the seasons, there are a select few favorite flower varieties that have stood the test of time and remain  in demand until the present day.

Well, now it could be your daughter's turn to walk down the aisle. Here are a list of the top 10 most popular wedding flowers to help you narrow down your selections.

The delicate pink and blue varieties are just perfect for a summer wedding, while the deep green and burgundy shades will complement an autumn wedding beautifully.

2. Gerberas-Vibrant and Young
The trendy, fashionable gerbera is an extremely popular choice of wedding flower, owing to it’s many colour varieties and the fact that it is relatively affordable. Carried alone or in a bouquet with other flowers, the gerbera is great for adding a vibrant accent colour to your big day.

A peony in full bloom is a marvellous sight, so it comes as no surprise that this is one of the most sought after types of wedding flower. With its luxurious taffeta-like flower head, the peony can hold its own in any arrangement but looks equally splendid when arranged with peonies and stocks.

Orchid Wedding Flower
5.  Orchids-Elegance Personified
For the modern bride, orchids make an elegant and distinctive choice. These exotic flowers look equally as sophisticated in cascading shower bouquets as they do in more structured arrangements. Single orchid heads also make attractive buttonholes too- an easy way to carry your theme through to the groom’s party.

6.  Stephanotis-A Blast From The Past
Meaning ‘marital happiness’ the stephanotis flower is a wonderful way to add a touch of old-fashioned glamour to your wedding flowers. These small, star-shaped flowers exude a beautiful, fragrant perfume and have a timeless look about them, perfect for such a special day.

Calla Lilies Wedding

The Calla Lily is an iconic flower and a striking choice for both bridal and venue designs. With its clean lines and structural shape, this type of flower is best suited to more contemporary weddings and can look stunning arranged with more exotic flowers such as anthuriums and orchids.

Lilly of the Valley Wedding Flower
8.  Lily of the Valley-Royalty
The wedding flower of choice for British royals, Lily of the Valley featured in the bridal bouquets of Kate Middleton and Princess Diana. Generally one of the more expensive types of wedding flower, owing to its limited availability, Lily of the Valley exudes an air of elegance that is difficult to match.

Perhaps the world’s favourite flower, it’s not surprising roses are often top of a brides wish list too. Roses have everything; grace, beauty and fragrance and they are available in many different colourful shades, too. Whether arranged into an elaborate bouquet or worn as a corsage on the wrist, the rose is an enduring and deservedly popular choice of wedding flower.

10. Tulips-Cheerful and Happy

The tulip’s cheerful disposition and range of colour varieties make it a popular choice of wedding flower. Tied together in posies or arranged in simple containers, they make truly eye-catching displays worthy of any wedding day celebration.

A blast from the past.  

On December 18, 1988, my dashing dad walked me down the church aisle.  A lovely bouquet of crimson red lilies in my left hand.

For the wedding dinner, I again incorporated the lilies in my hairstyle.  As the saying goes, "Waste not, want not!"
