1. Phalaenopsis Orchid
We totally love the purple/pink look of this flower. The pink hues are blended effortlessly with hues of white to create a perfect wedding look that manages to have a little more flair and individuality than you might expect.
Pink and red are very passionate colors, so they can easily help to inject a little bit of life and energy into a wedding ceremony, and they can make a great centerpiece when decorating for a wedding.
These flowers are also known as ‘Moth Orchids’, and they look totally fabulous in a cascading arrangement, allowing you to create a very natural look, and even an overgrown look, if you wanted!
Lisianthus flowers have become incredibly popular in more recent years thanks to their striking resemblance to more traditional roses, though they are largely much more affordable to get your hands on!
One of the best things about these flowers is that they come in all kinds of colors, including purple, lavender, cream, green, and, of course, white!
This means you can easily mix and match colors to create a unique look for your ceremony, or stick with the tried and tested white color scheme that is perfect for all kinds of weddings!
We also love the way the petals look on these flowers. The frayed ends of the petals give them a handmade and fabric-like look that we love.
We totally adore the way that snapdragon flowers hang from their stems, and the way they look when they are organized alongside a bunch of other flowers in an arrangement.
These short-lived perennials are known to bloom in a wide array of colors, so they can be a great flower to add to an arrangement to complete a look and add a bit of flair, or to help adhere to a chosen color palette for the event.
You could easily choose one of the highly vibrant and bright color varieties, or simply go for a paler color or a white to blend a little more easily with a more traditional wedding color scheme. It’s totally up to you, and there’s a whole lot of choice!
Daffodils are amongst some of the most recognizable and iconic flowers in the world, but this by no means entails that they cannot help to bring some personality to your wedding flower arrangements!
It’s difficult to resist the shape of daffodils. We totally love the way that the central bloom, often of a distinct color, is surrounded by fanning petals on two layers that help to focus the eye in on the center of the flowers.
The flowers themselves can come in a wide array of colors, with the petals ranging from white to yellow, and the central blossom being found in colors like peach, and white. We love the colors in the image above.
The pure white elegantly helps the peach color of the center to pop more easily.
Carnations are special because of the high number of petals that can be found on the flowers, and the unique ways that they are arranged.
We love the way that the petals seem to intertwine with one another, and how impossible those same arrangements appear to look.
These are very full-looking flowers that can make for great centerpieces, and the best thing of all is that they are incredibly cost-effective, so you can easily buy a whole bunch and arrange them however you like!
These amazing flowers are recognizable because they are largely made up of much smaller flowers all over the top. This gives yarrow a very adorable look that is totally irresistible.
One of the best things about yarrow is that they can be found in a pure white color, or an equally fabulous yellow color that has great summery shades.
These are great to add to a wedding flower arrangement, and they look fabulous no matter where you put them.
Another great thing about yarrow is that it dries incredibly well, so you can easily create a dried look that is perfect for a wedding taking place during the fall!
Craspedia flowers are often referred to as ‘Drumstick’ flowers, and when you take a look at them for yourself, it’s really easy to see why.
We totally love the way that these small round flowers sit comfortably atop very long stalks, which helps to create an incredible look that is totally eye-catching despite its simplicity.
Thanks to their long stalks, these flowers are easy to insert into existing flower arrangements, which makes it easy to incorporate these into any wedding decoration ideas you may have.
Another reason these flowers are great for weddings is that they have a look reminiscent of the sun, which means that they are great for creating a natural look.
Hydrangeas are flowers most often seen in shades of blue and white, which makes them a total no-brainer when it comes to finding perfect wedding flowers.
However, you don’t just have to stick to those simple colors if you want to still make use of the amazing shape of hydrangeas.
These flowers bloom in a way that looks incredibly voluminous, which makes them really pop when used to decorate at a wedding.
And despite blooming to such incredible sizes, these flowers are actually highly affordable, which makes them great for adding some additional extra to your flower arrangements.
These flowers are also popular for weddings because they carry connotations of femininity and elegance, which can make them a great flower to add to the bouquet!
9. Calla Lily
Sometimes when creating a wedding flower arrangement, elegance, and simplicity can truly reign supreme, and these flowers are some of the best for this exact purpose.
Calla lilies look amazing partly because of the singular large petals that surround the stamen at the very center. This creates a great conical look that immediately draws the eyes to the center of the flower.
As a result, these flowers are great for adding as the centerpiece of a flower arrangement because they can help to focus the eyes on a central point.
These flowers also have incredibly long stems, which makes them great to bunch together in a small arrangement in a clear vase, but also helps to make them very easy to simply slot into specific flower arrangements!
These flowers can be used to make a really great and strong statement amongst flower arrangements at a wedding.
Anemone flowers are denoted by their iconic blend of black and white colors. The central part of the flower is a rich and deep black color that contrasts starkly against the purer white look of the petals that surround it.
This makes these flowers some of the most eye-catching, so you will want to make sure that you arrange them carefully so as not to make an arrangement look too cluttered or messy.
If you can carefully arrange Anemones into the design of your wedding, then you can easily create an arrangement that will be remembered for years to come!
Tulips have a great spear-like shape atop a long stalk, which easily helps them to stand out when added to a flower arrangement, and one of the best things about tulips is that they are very easy to get a hold of, and they come in a truly massive array of colors, which makes it cost-effective to grab them, and makes it easy to create the perfect color scheme for your wedding.
The most iconic flowers at a wedding are those in the bouquet, and tulips are totally easy to add to a bouquet because of how simple they are.
To Wrap Up
