Weddings are full of little details... the icing on the cake, the rings, lace on the bride’s beautiful gown, and of course flowers. Bouquets are meticulously put together for the bride and her bridesmaids, boutonnieres for the men, as well as grand centerpieces for the reception and various other pieces for the ceremony. Everyone has their favorites when it comes to flowers, or maybe you’re the type of bride who hates flowers. Either way, there is something beautiful in adding a little bit of nature into wedding ceremonies and receptions, so here’s a list of our favorites for wedding flowers and flower alternatives!

One of the most romantic flowers other than the Rose is an orchid. Orchid are flowers that come in a multitude of varieties and colors. Orchids definitely aren’t seen at every wedding in town but they are sure to be a show-stopper in any bouquet or table arrangement. They just stand out, orchids never disappoint and are a perfect choice for a spring or summer wedding!

Bringing a little hint of a more exotic look to the decor or bouquets, the Lily flower brings pizazz and a pop of color! Not to mention you can choose from multiple families of lilies to mix and match your style, such as Calla lilies or the classic Easter lily.

Go Green!

One major trend this year is ditching the flowers altogether and going for more greenery! Vines are a perfect choice in this trend. When it comes to decor vines are incredibly versatile, and match practically everything. Imagine a greenhouse look of hanging vines overhead but taken to a level a classy and romantic that is unparalleled by old-school bouquets. You can decorate your reception in this manner or just hang a few vines around church pews or chairs, or even line the aisle! Indoor or outdoor festivities, you can’t go wrong with a little natural green.

Say I Do Succulents
Everyone loves succulents these days, from DIY house projects to cupcake decorators everyone’s joining the succulent trend. So why not chose them as your wedding bouquet?! The results may surprise you! Succulents can be found in many varieties and colors, not to mention they’ll maintain their beauty longer than any flower bouquet as succulents are a member of the cactus family and do not require much watering.

When all else fails or you just like a more classic look, you can never go wrong with roses. Available in a variety of colors and acting as an eternal symbol of romance and love it’s no wonder why roses have been a traditional wedding flower for decades.  

But what if you hate flowers yet you still like the idea of a bouquet?

Use your imagination! There are no limits on your wedding day! Just look at this beautiful seashell bouquet!
