Tropical flower arrangements for weddings are slowly becoming popular due to the bold colors and varying sizes of these flowers. Here are some tips on how to make a wedding flower arrangement with tropical 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.
Wedding Table Decoration
You can use tropical flowers everywhere throughout the wedding decoration. They can be used to make delicate bridal hair accessories or prominent altar decorations.
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.
