Here are some wedding flowers that are real classics for any bride planning her luxury wedding day. From florists in Nottingham to all the way down to florists in Brighton they will for certain be able to talk you through your wedding flower ideas.
My favourite classic wedding flower and it’s easy to see why it is so popular with so many brides. The enduring appeal of this beautiful bloom lies in its year round availability. From vintage -style pastels to vibrant red and purples that ever them or colour palette, you are guaranteed to find a rose to compliment it.
Hydrangeas used to be only available for a short summer season but now you can get hold of hydrangeas thought the year in every colour. What I love about them is that they because of the sheer size of each flower head, you only need three or four stems to create such a pretty flower display. Individual florets can be used in your groom’s button hole to complement a hydrangea bouquet, and they also make really pretty pomanders for flower girls, as well as being perfect for circlets and wreaths.
Peonies are one type of flower that are on trend at the moment, pretty garden flowers such as peonies are gaining popularity. Available in May, June and early July they come in a lovely spectrum of pink, red, yellow and ivory shades. My favourite variety includes pink ‘show girl’ and ‘angel cheeks’. Their large flower heads make them great for both table displays and hand-tied posies, and they combine beautifully with other summer flowers.
Lily of the Valley
Their exquisite scent, delicate bell shaped flowers and short lived springtime availability make lily of the valley an extremely special wedding flower. When Grace Kelly married Prince Rainer in 1956, she chose just this old fashioned garden flower for her wedding day.
Lilies are great for contemporary brides, the calla or arum lily has a clean, sculptural and is available at any time of the year. As well as white, they come in pink, yellow, orange and deep purple, making theme great choice for ultra modern weddings.
Thanks to their clean lines and extensive colour palette the humble tulip is one of the most popular and versatile wedding flower. No matter what colour scheme, there will be a tulip to match. Traditionally available from November to April, they are very popular with spring brides.
