What flowers do you want to see at your wedding? Roses or tulips? Or maybe something else entirely? Flowers are a big part of weddings. They symbolize love, beauty, and happiness. They come in so many colors, shapes, sizes, and scents; you will have a plethora of choices!

But what type of flower should you choose? The answer depends on who you ask. Some say roses are the classic choice, while others prefer peonies. What do you think?

5 Flowers to Use For DIY Beauty Tricks

Rose

Roses are always a great choice. Roses are associated with love and romance. They also symbolize beauty, femininity, and elegance. In addition, they are often used at weddings as wedding decorations. How did roses become such an essential part of our culture?

The history of roses goes back thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians believed that the flower was sacred and gave them special powers. Romans considered rose petals to be aphrodisiacs. And during the Middle Ages, the flower became a symbol of purity and innocence.

You might not realize it, but there are more varieties of roses than there are ways to spell “bouquet.” The larger, puffier, and more multi-petaled types make excellent face flowers, meaning they’re the showstoppers of any bouquet or centerpiece. Smaller ones add a delicate accent to bouquets and centerpieces.

How to Grow Peonies

Peony

Peonies are, hands down, the most highly coveted of wedding flowers. Everyone loves them, everyone wants them, but unfortunately, they’re one of those flowers that cost an arm and a leg. If your heart is telling you to have peonies, but you don’t want to spend a lot of money, then maybe just use them for your bouquet and at your head table.

Ranunculus

These little guys are usually used as accents rather than as the main attraction of the arrangement. They come in different colors but are roughly the same size. The most common accent flower used in conjunction with ranunculus is the peony. 

Dahlia meaning and symbolism

Dahlia

Dahlias are one of our all-time favorites because they’re big, bright, and bold without costing a fortune. They come in a fantastic range of hues and sizes, so there’s something for everyone. They can be combined with Calla Lillies for a very chic bouquet. We also love them paired with roses and lilies, but we’ve seen some creative arrangements using dahlias alone.

Calla Lilly 

With their trumpet-shaped flowers, Callas is an ideal choice for wedding bouquets. They’reThey’re particularly effective when paired with longer stems. Calla lilies are one of the most popular cut flower varieties available today. Their long, trumpet-shaped blooms make them perfect for weddings and events where guests want something more than just a bunch of roses. Callas also look great in arrangements with other flowers such as peonies, dahlias, ranunculus, and gladiolus.

Purple Hydrangeas

Hydrangea

Hydrangeas are large, showy flowers that bloom profusely throughout the summer months. They resemble a beating heart, so their shape symbolizes perseverance and emotion. They exude femininity and elegance in shades of pink or white. Hydrangeas come in many colors, including pink, purple, blue, red, yellow, orange, brown, and white. We are especially fond of the dusty, multi-colored varieties called antique hydrangeas because they look old and worn out. They look great in arrangements and bouquets. Because they bloom year-round, hydrangeas are really a unique option when it comes to wedding flowers. Hydrangeas are often used as wedding bouquets because they are long-lasting and last well after the wedding ceremony. If you want to design a beautiful wedding bouquet, these are some great options.
