Can any wedding be complete without beautiful and fragrant flowers decked out as centerpieces and bouquets? Flowers are an integral part of a wedding, whatever the wedding theme. From centerpieces to bouquets and boutonnieres to wedding ceremony decorations, wedding flowers play a crucial part in exuding the wedding theme and atmosphere.
Flower Arrangements for Beach Weddings
If you want a show stopping bouquet for your wedding, then why not opt for a cascading bridal bouquet fashioned out of cymbidium orchids, chartreuse flowers, gloriosa lilies, leucadendron, and hosta leaves. For a touch of the whimsy, add a few satin ribbons in lime green or violet to give the cascading bouquet a more lush and romantic look.
Each bridesmaid can carry a compact bouquet made of mini calla lilies in yellow or pink tied with a ribbon. Alternatively, you can also choose pink or orange nerine lilies or even yellow crocus and oncidium orchids. Keeping the bridesmaids bouquet more compact and streamlined will help in highlighting the beauty of the more dramatic cascading bridal bouquet.
One great beach wedding centerpiece ideas is to use big wide mouthed spiral shell as a vase. Glue the base of the shell to a small rectangular ceramic plate with a bit of glue and fill the shell with water. Arrange a few flowers like purple scabiosa and baby's breath inside the shell vase.
Another good beach wedding flower arrangement is to use a rattan planter as a centerpiece and fill it with white orchids and long stemmed white calla lilies. Choose a long rattan planter and paint it in pristine white paint color. Line the inside of the planter with a plastic plate and then fill it with a piece of florist foam.
Trim the stems of all the flowers to the same height and place them inside the planter. Use green leaves like palm leaves or hosta leaves to add a touch of color to the centerpiece. Since this floral arrangement is a large one, you should place just one centerpiece in each table.
If you decide on having a wedding arch for solemnizing your wedding then you can decorate it with phalaenopsis orchids and anthurium along with hosta leaves to give it a bright and vibrant look. Beach weddings can be made into one of the most perfect wedding venues if you choose the right flowers and floral arrangements.
