Modern brides are becoming more and more enterprising and are willing to experiment with their wedding decorations. Gone are the days when roses and lilies were the only choices for wedding decorations. Today, you have innumerable options in terms of color, size, and fragrance of the flowers.
How to Make a Tropical Floral Arrangement
Tropical flowers are most suitable for informal, outdoor weddings. If you are opting for a Hawaiian wedding theme or a beach wedding then these beautiful flowers can be used easily in various decorations. Fall and summer wedding decorations can also look fabulous with a splash of color.
Yellow hibiscus: This is the state flower of Hawaii, with a luscious fragrance. You can tie these large flowers together for decorating the altar. A single flower tied with a silk ribbon suffices the need for the wedding pew. However, due to their size, they are not suitable for table decoration or in centerpieces.
Yellow ilima: This a smaller version of the yellow hibiscus. It can be used in almost any flower decoration. If white is the theme of your wedding, then a lovely dash of yellow would look absolutely stunning.
These pretty flowers also look fabulous when combined with purple or lavender flowers. They can also be used for bridal hair decoration. However, you may not easily find these tropical flowers.
Ohia: This is another tropical flower that is native to Big Island. It comes in vibrant colors of red, orange, yellow, and white. Arrange these flowers with suitable greenery to make a marvelous flower arrangement. Add some small kukui blossoms as fillers in this type of floral arrangement.
Purple orchids are the most commonly used variety of orchids. They signify love and romance, hence, their use in wedding decorations is justified. They look equally stunning in bridal bouquets as well as centerpieces.
Gladiolus: This is a large flower with a long stalk. The perfectly round bloom of gladiolus makes it a favorite in flower arrangements. It is found in several dazzling colors such as pink, white, yellow, orange, red, burgundy etc. Simply tying a bunch of these with a satin ribbon or tulle makes for a perfect bridal bouquet for summer weddings.
