Themes are becoming more popular for modern weddings, even if your theme is just a simple colour scheme, and one of the best ways to showcase your theme if through your wedding flowers. Here are some ideas for various themes, such as flowers for vintage themed weddings.
For your flower arrangements try to get hold of vintage tea pots and vases and fill them with roses, peonies, gardenias, celosia, dahlias, and ranunculus. To add a touch of gold try spraying some gardenia leaves with metallic paint and use them as the base of your bouquet. The colours to consider when choosing vintage wedding flowers are deep reds, pale pinks and gold.
The most prevalent colour scheme for a polka dot themed wedding is white and pink, although you can have any combination you like; mint and duck egg blue are also very effective. Your bouquet could be made up of a large number of pure white blooms, with just five hot pink roses scattered amongst them. You could also tie your bouquet with polka dot ribbon, or use plain white ribbon and stick on three or four bright pink buttons in a line. Polka dot patterns are currently very popular, and a polka dot theme brings a fun element to any wedding. Try and find oversized polka dot tea cups to use as centrepieces and fill them with lovely roses.
Cala lilies are a favourite choice for winter wonderland weddings, but you could also have avalanche roses, delphiniums and hydrangeas. For a real winter wonderland bouquet, your main colour should be white, but you can also go for shades of ivory, cream and green. A great way to decorate your winter wonderland bouquet would be to spray pine cones with metallic silver paint and attach them to long wires to nestle into your flowers.
Flowers that are most appropriate for a seaside theme include waxflower, veronica, eryngium and garden roses. The look should be natural and fresh with bouquets using colours such as yellows and greens. Try decorating your seaside bouquet or flower arrangements with seashells glued to lengths of wire that can be tied together with the flower stems using local materials such as twine. Bouquets and flower arrangements for a seaside wedding should be informal and uncontrived to suit the style of wedding.
Incorporate music into your floral arrangements by hiring instruments such as French horns and entwining them with roses and freesias. These instruments can be effective both as bouquets and table centres. If you and your fiancé are music lovers, a musical themed wedding could be the perfect choice.
For a Hollywood style wedding choose colours that make an impact; red is a great choice as it’s a reference to the famous red carpet. A bouquet of scarlet roses would be ideal for a Hollywood wedding if it was combined with black feathers. Each flower could be accessorised with individual crystal head pins. The glitz and glamour of a Hollywood theme wedding should be reflected in some truly spectacular flowers.
