Let’s face it, without the special guests that will be attending your wedding, the day won’t be the same. To thank your cherished friends and family that journeyed all the way to your affair let them leave with a small token of your gratitude. What better way to celebrate life and beauty than to give flowers? They make lovely wedding favors and are a great way of putting another unique touch onto your special day!
Here are some creatively cute wedding favor examples that highlight some of our favorite flowers that we just love!
Nothing says “Spring” like seeing tulips pop up in your garden. Like many other spring flowers – think daffodils, hyacinths, and irises – these beautiful blooms bring rich, vibrant color and texture to any bouquet or arrangement. We especially love the tulip for its availability: Unlike some of its spring friends, wholesale tulips are readily available throughout the year. They are mainly grown in Holland and shipped all around the world.
Known for their amazing color variation, tulips symbolize “perfect love”, making them exquisite in wedding flowers and charming as gifts. You can find these beauties in pink, red, orange, peach, white, yellow, purple, and even bi-colored varieties. Standard tulip buds are elegant and sleek, with one bloom per stem standing straight and tall. These blossoms have a cupped and starred shape which makes them quite unique compared to other varieties of flowers. Other varieties, like parrot tulips and fringed tulips, offer ruffled petal edges for additional texture.
What do we do with our wedding flowers after the big day? After your wedding, you will be left with gorgeous flowers that still have some life left in them. Don’t just throw them away – give them a second chance! Here are few simple and unexpected ways to repurpose wedding flowers:
Perhaps one of the reasons why we love roses so much is because they can be grown in just about any color and can range from whites to pinks to reds and purples. Pair these darling buds with almost anything from baby’s breath, tulips, ranunculus, gerpoms, and seeded eucalyptus. However, possibilities can be absolutely endless! With this much versatility, what’s not to love?
Roses are the quintessential flower when it comes to wedding design! They go with just about any flower but also look stunning standing solo. Their slightly curled edges give them a garden inspired feel, and with rose farms all over the world are readily available all year round. Forget about roses “by the dozen” – standard wholesale roses are sold in packs of 25 stems. We are not complaining though – more blooms to create stunning designs with!
Romantic and the epitome of springtime, peonies are among the top trending flowers for weddings. Brides love the fluffy ruffled look and full size. Peonies’ versatility allows them be a flawless choice for almost any wedding theme including vintage, whimsical, and garden style.
Typically a peony’s bloom spans 4-6 inches wide, making it the perfect focal flower for any bridal design. They are grown in a variety of shades ranging from white, a blush toned white, light pink, dark pink, red, coral, and even burgundy. These versatile flowers have a vase life of up to 7 days, and are a reasonably hardy flower – making them pretty easy to work with for the DIY bride.
