Wedding colour schemes can be a great way to tie the event together and keep the decorating sleek and gorgeous. One particularly fragrant aspect of your decorations will be your flowers - bouquets, boutonnieres, and bunches.
Here are a few examples of colourful blooms to match your wedding theme!
Red roses are a quintessential symbol of love but if you’re looking for something a little different (and perhaps a little more affordable), you do have a few options.
Red poinsettias and tulips are commonly available in Australia through summer, while Waratah and ranunculus flowers bloom from winter through to spring. And of course, poppies are a fun splash of red at any event!
The sunniest and happiest of colours, yellow flowers at a wedding can only lift the mood and add a bright pop to those wedding photos.
Look for lilies, orchids, dahlias, gerberas, daffodils, freesias, frangipanis and of course, sunflowers for your lemon-hued event.
Blue can be a little harder to find in flowers, but not impossible!
Delphiniums are available all year, and forget-me-nots are gorgeous little flowers with an immense blue hue. Hydrangeas are also a good choice, as they offer a range of blues and are available during Australia’s wedding season from November to April.
Opting for a natural green look at your wedding? It will be less about the blooms and all about the grasses and leaves!
While some flower species will offer a green hue (such as certain lilies, hydrangeas and tulips), your florist will likely point you towards eye-catching leaves. Ferns are a stunning natural choice, tall grasses add height and interest, and lotus flower leaves make for a gorgeous background if you’re including flowers into the mix.
A florist will help you get your bouquets just right - and Hennings Jewellers will help you match your jewellery to your wedding theme, too. These blue topaz earrings are the perfect addition to any bridal outfit for a blue-hued big day!
