A flower for all Seasons

It’s a great time of year to be choosing the flowers for your Wedding.  As you have the partner of your dreams, an amazing dress and a great venue.  All your family and friends have been invited and now its time to choose the flowers for you autumn / winter wedding.  As the autumn months draw in I am sure you are wondering what flowers you can choose.

Are you having a large church wedding, a marquee, a hotel or a destination wedding on the beach. You can find lots of different floral designs to suit your style and budget.

What’s your colour scheme, do you worry about finding the colourful flowers to match your décor and colour scheme during the autmnn/winter months that you are getting married.

AUTUMN FLOWERS

Chrysanthemum are a traditional autumn flower.  Hypercium are often used as their berries are popular as fillers and Extase roses have deep wine red petals perfect for those months when you want to add warm to your displays, white colourful anthuriums add an exotic feel.

WINTER FLOWERS

If you love bright flowers like myself I suggest Amaryllis. They make gorgeous displays with lovely flowers in white to contrast with the red. Even though its winter here in the UK bright colours can be used as they are in the Caribbean shades of deep magenta, pink and blues.  Phalaenopsis orchid are lovely flowers in bright colours.

Weddings by Lisa Lee recommends the following flowers which can be used all year round. Here a couple of my favorites.

Cymbidium orchid

The look: Exotic cymbidium orchids have waxy, trumpted-shaped flower heads on branch-like stems, and come in shades of green, yellow, pink, purple and white.

Best for: Single stems in tall vases to create chic tablecentres, or teaming with roses and calla lilies for more romantic style.  Orchids are great for button holes.

Calla lily

The look: This sophisticated elegant looking flower is one of the most popular choices for modern brides.  My favourite colours are white, yellow, pink and purple hues.

 

Best for: The wow factor in just one colour.  Massive bunches of calla lillies are great for hand tied bouquets or large displays.

Rose: This is the most popular wedding flower of them all.  It has a romantic look and have lovely fragrances.

Best: For gorgeous bridal bouquets and fantastic table centrepieces.  Roses come in an array of colours and can be mixed with clematis, jasmine, blackberries and eucalyptus.
