From lush greenery and stunning (garden) roses to jaw-dropping lilies and sassy sweet peas… This wedding season is all about good planning and even better flowers. Ready to plan ahead? Visit our special wedding tab in the pre-order system. Before you do: Here’s a list of the most popular wedding flowers of the season.
Garden roses are one of the most sought-after wedding flowers. Although they are actually roses, these blooms are nothing like the ordinary roses. Their lush and ruffled petals form a mesmerising swirl pattern. If a bride is aiming for an innocent and pure vibe you should go for the white garden roses. While the pink garden roses symbolise grace and happiness.
Another popular wedding flower is the Peony. Because Peonies are only available a few months a year they are extra special. Which makes the wedding bouquet even more exclusive. Peonies are available on our Pre-order starting next week (week 16) until week 26.
Do not buy Peonies when they’re still too tight in the bud. It’s better to have a little bit of colour on the buds, and the chances of opening in time are better. You might want to dampen the buds from time to time with a plant spray in order to encourage flowering.
The Lathyrus is mostly known by its common name: Sweet Pea. These flowers could not be any more romantic. The delicate and ruffled petals, the sweet fragrance, make the Lathyrus the perfect wedding flower. And because they are available in numerous colours they will fit in any bride’s colour scheme.
Lily of the Valley
Convallaria, also known as Lily of the Valley, featured in bridal bouquets of several iconic brides, such as Grace Kelly and Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge’s bouquet was almost made entirely from Lily of the Valley. She chose the flowers because of its meaning: trustworthy. Each delicate flower forms a tiny bell-shape with a slight outward curl at the end of each petal. It is said that this flower brings luck in love. And which bride and groom to be wouldn’t want that?
The last wedding flower we’re highlighting is the Freesia. This unique flower symbolises unconditional love and innocence. Because it comes in white, yellow, orange, red, blue, pink and purple there’s a Freesia for every bride. Many varieties carry a delightful scent, something that really does set Freesias apart from other flowers, as many flowers do not carry scent at all. Once the wedding day is over the bride (and groom) will have many glorious memories to remember and will be reminded by the Freesias scent.
