By On Sep 27, 2018 Wedding Flowers
Meaningful flowers are a lovely way to personalise your wedding, and many couples are looking for flowers that have a special significance to them, as well as simple being attractive to look at. Roses are the ultimate wedding flower signifying love, joy and beauty, but more contemporary blooms such as calla lilies which signify magnificent beauty and orchids that represent love, are becoming more popular. Larkspur and lavender are best avoided as they signify infidelity and distrust respectively. Talk of any community, culture, or religion from all over the world, no wedding is complete without flowers. Be it beautifying the ambience and the décor, or showering the newlyweds with petals, flowers play an important role in any wedding. Initially what used to be simple garlands or rangolis made of assorted petals, have now progressed to intricately woven garlands with a variety of flowers, thoughtfully arranged bouquets, and a careful selection of flowers based on their colour, fragrance and even appearance!
Adding light to flower arrangements gives them romantic appeal and extra depth. Candles have always been popular wedding decorations, but many florists are now wiring votive candles into table centres, hanging candles from tall floral arrangements, or floating candles in specially designed vases. You can even add crystals to your bouquet to reflect the light and make it sparkle. Unusual shapes are a key feature of modern wedding flowers. Rather than neat compact arrangements, florists are turning to natural centrepieces that flow across the table, or grouping simple vases of different heights to add interest. Arranging single stems along the centre of the table produces a dramatic effect as long as they are not spaced too far apart. Florists are looking at the venue as a whole, rather than at individual tables, and trying to create arrangements that direct the eye around the entire room.
Floral centrepieces have always been in the vogue, and have always been appreciated by people from all walks of life. And brides across the ages have always used flowers to be part of their centrepieces, ever since the fashionable trend caught on. Increasingly these days, brides are looking for newer and fresher takes on the concept of floral centrepieces, and are pushing the boundaries of design. A new and extremely popular trend for instance, is putting fresh flowers in purposely decorated jam bottles and jars. You can use some coloured bits of lace or multiple ribbons to embellish a vase so that it looks brand new and beautiful. These are wonderful options for DIY enthusiasts, who can use this base template as a platform of absolute expression. If you are not very strong in your DIY skills however, you can still use coloured food containers or boxes to hold your flowers. If you are a fan of vintage themes, you can never go wrong with plain metal tins, free of any wrapping, to hold your floral decorations. And you can always mix and match to attain that perfect hipster look, the eclectic will be coming out of your ears.
