The Folklore of Wedding Flowers


Posted By on Nov 12, 2017

So you’re looking for just the perfect flowers for your dream wedding? Believe it or not, well back in the day, brides used to carry flowers for a slightly less romantic reason: to ward off evil spirits! Back then, instead of flowers they carried a mix of pungent herbs and spices to drive away bad luck. Since then, of course, floral bouquets have long been the favorite for brides to carry down the aisle on their special day.

Brides of all kinds have their own reasons why they choose specific flowers for their weddings. Perhaps it is a family tradition or they have heard stories about a certain flower. Have you ever wondered about the meanings of flowers and where they came from?

Perhaps one of the most quintessential flowers for wedding design, carnations are symbolic to expressing love and fascination. Think cheerleader pompoms or bushy bunny tails- these colorful beauties have rounded and frilled edges that will enhance any floral arrangement! Not only that, but they pair well with almost any flower or greenery. Pair carnations with roses, ranunculus, mums, baby’s breath, and eucalyptus.

Wedding Flower Favorites: Tulips


Posted By on Apr 16, 2017

tulips are readily available

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.

Wedding Flower Favorite: Roses


Posted By on Mar 5, 2017

 

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!
