For me, the rose is the most romantic flower of all, regardless of what color is chosen. Personally, I prefer a deep red rose. I always associate it with the fairytale mythologies that are built around it. For example, in Disney’s ‘The Beauty And The Beast’, Belle must fall in love before the last petal drops. How romantic!
The rose represents beauty and love, passion and romance. For a wedding, it’s just perfect! It adds that element of mystical greatness. The rose really does embrace the atmosphere of love.
I love carnations for so many reasons. One being that it’s my mother’s favourite flower, because it was her mother’s favorite flower. I just think that is so lovely! But also, because they are really affordable and they come in such a wide variety of color. As well as that, they are really strong flowers, so a lot of the time they are used for making back-drops or other decorations. It would work really well to create a theme built around carnations on your big day, not only because they are super affordable but also because they really are very beautiful.
LILY OF THE VALLEY
What I like most about lilies is that they have this amazing perfumed scent- which makes them perfect for a center-piece. A lot of people believe that all lilies are white, however, they are also available in a rose-pink (and they look fab!).
The bell-shaped beauties are marvelously elegant. As I said, in my opinion, lilies would be best suited for a center piece. They are just far too ravishing to be pushed to the side or thrown in the air!
I love the vibrancy that tulips bring to the table! A wide variety of colors are available, my personal favorite being purple and, of course, red. The long stem really does just represent such delicacy. Sophistication and class are clearly illustrated through the image of a tulip. The tulip really could be the perfect flower to have on display on your big day!
If you’re considering getting married during the summer or abroad somewhere hot, the orchid is one-hundred-percent suitable for a tropical setting. Said to represent charm and beauty, the orchid is one of the more uni-sex flowers- which means it’ll look great on everyone! The orchid is a more fresh and exotic flower, which would look better presented at an out-door or summer event. If this kind of wedding is right up your alley, maybe the orchid could be perfect for you!
