Aside from the Bride, flowers are the one of the most beautiful things at a wedding. They provide beautiful colors and textures to any hand or table, and boutonnieres make grooms look extra spiffy. Now granted, the bride may want her bouquet to be made of her favorite flowers, but what if she does not have a favorite? What then? You simply, and cheaply, look into beautiful flowers by the season! In this week’s blog, we will talk about flowers for the season along with what colors to coordinate – so everything looks seamless and extravagant. Please keep in mind that the flowers we suggest are ones in season during spring, summer, fall, and winter. The color pallets we suggest are of course suggestions — you can always pick whichever colors you desire.
Spring Wedding Flowers
For all my springtime March, April, May couples, the best flowers for these types of weddings are cymbidium (pink) orchids, pink roses, calla lilies, sweet peas, and purple tulips. All these flowers give off a strong, sweet smell that you just cannot help but to fall in love. The color combinations are endless! If your primary color is blush to coordinate excellently with the pink orchids and pink roses, then we suggest blush, mint, and dusty rose or blush, grey, and black. For a sweeter touch, we suggest using a blush, dusty rose, and bright pink or lavender, gold, and eggplant scheme to go with the calla lilies and sweet peas. A relaxing evening smelling the sweet purple tulips, we really like lavender, plum, and sage green or perhaps a lavender, mint, and sage green scheme. To really accentuate the purple in the tulips while still being subtle, we love grey, sage green and pink or grey, periwinkle, and peach. However, we cannot forget using precious mint as your primary color! We adore calla lilies and purple tulips with mint, gold, and blush; mint, orchid, and gold go swimmingly with the pink orchids; mint, pink, and silver go beautifully with all our suggested flowers. For a subtle color scheme that goes marvelously with anything we suggest grey, yellow, and peach. Like we said, the color schemes are endless!
Summer Wedding Flowers
Summer couples can I have your attention please! June, July, and August spouses to be if you decide you really want to make a statement with your color pallet, we suggest yellow, bright pink, and blush or yellow, peacock blue, and green. If you choose to make a delicate statement with yellow, we suggest yellow, mint, and light blue—it’s precious and adorable. Our favorite flowers to go with those combinations are poppies and freesias. Corals also make a “pow!” statement! Coral, aqua, and light blue; coral, mint, and yellow; and again with the sedulity use coral, grey, and white to go well with the yellow gerbera and veronica bouquets. Our ladies in white need to stand out too! We suggest navy, bright pink, and blush; navy, blush, and white; and lastly, a combination of navy, yellow and blush to go with her sunflower bouquet! She’ll be stunning and smell amazing! If your ceremony and reception take place outdoors, can you just imagine how glorious your flowers and colors look in the sunset? Just screaming romance!
Fall Wedding Flowers
Nothing makes you fall harder than these autumn schemes with red roses and bi-color roses with a cranberry, indigo, and ivory; a cranberry, sage green, and champagne or even a cranberry, mustard, and burlap pallet. Wouldn’t you agree? You will fall more and more in love during this spectacular fall season. Not only will the roses and bi-color roses smell sweet and sensuous, but it is the forever “I love you” flower. If you wanted to switch it up from the normal flower and color pairing, variants of plum are great! To feel elegant and royal, try plum, gold, and ivory; plum, dark green, and mint or a plum, grey, and white color scheme with the Asiatic lily and dahlia bouquet. And speaking of bouquets, orange gerberas and marigolds look amazing with an orange, cranberry, and green; orange, navy, and burlap or consider a champagne, blush, and coral pallet. For a more subdued, but elegant fall look, we pair the purple alstroemeria for a pop of color with a champagne, mint, and blush or champagne, green, and ivory color scheme. No matter the September, October, November fall scheme you decide, your outdoor pictures will look stunning with the sunset and leaves changing!
Winter Wedding Flowers
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! For my Anna’s and Kristoff’s out there who want a December, January, February winter wonderland wedding, try using a white color scheme! White, gold, and sapphire; white, blush, and grey; or a white, red, and silver scheme with white gardenias and stephanotis flowers are absolutely stupendous! To have a holly, jolly, Christmas wedding might we suggest red, emerald, and gold or a red, gold, and ivory scheme? With a gorgeous holly, jasmine, and orchid bouquet to top it off? Or if Christmas is not your practiced tradition, perhaps try a sophisticated emerald, silver, and mint or emerald, purple, gold scheme with forget-me-nots and French tulips. If you decide you want everyone to feel the romance and wedded bliss in the room, go for a grey, mint, and gold or grey, purple, and blue scheme with red roses and amaryllis bouquet for pops of red coloring.
It’s Your Wedding
Always remember, your wedding is about you and the love you share with your partner. It does not matter what colors and flowers you two decide on, this is a day meant to celebrate the both of you! Marriage will not be easy–you may go through rough times together, but it is how you come out of those patches that will stand out. You get into marriage by knowing that you cannot picture your life without them, that you want to be a better person because of them. Your wedding is to show all of this and more. Your flowers and colors are just accent pieces to what you and your partner share. Your wedding, with the amount of love and caring in the room, will leave everyone feeling the love tonight–even in their blue suede shoes.
