Top Wedding Themes & Flowers To Choose

Whether you lean toward classic, romantic, modern, or bohemian, your wedding-day flowers can make a similar statement. It may be that you both like certain colours or some iconic details that have sentimental value, so with so many variations and wedding styles to choose from, the choice can be an overwhelming one. Here we give you a guide to the most popular wedding themes:   

Romantic   

Soft hues, delicate lighting, and plenty of florals typically make up a romantic wedding. A mix of peonies, ranunculus and roses is like a portable garden and creates a stunning bouquet. For a ‘shot’ of green a nice alternative to leaves is sweet peas, tied together with rich brocade ribbons creates the ultimate romantic vibe.   

Modern   

For a modern wedding, think clean lines, geometric shapes, and minimal design and typically the brides dress will be streamlined to match. Bouquets and arrangement using green leaves and a single colour add depth to gardenias, camellias, and calla lilies, while a detail like a bright ribbon really stand out.   

Another option is multi-coloured hydrangeas. There versatility suits a modern wedding, from arches to centrepieces, they give off a pop of colour that show the couple’s fun and creative nature.   

Rustic   

String lights, mason jars, twine, lace, and all wood everything contributes to the simple and homey vibe of this theme. From simple, white on white, two-flower bouquets that make a statement, to elaborate arrangements with succulents, peonies, roses and ferns, or even sunflowers, the choice and assortment of flowers for this kind of ceremony is proof that a rustic wedding can be elegant as you want it to be!   

Outdoor/Garden Party   

If you envision a more intimate, casual ceremony, opt for an outdoor-garden-party-themed wedding. Unlike indoors, of course, there’s sun, heat, rain and wind to consider!   

Attaching flowers to chairs gives that beautiful ethereal look and feel for the outdoor wedding. Incorporate touches like a collection of wood crates and tin pots with fresh flowers and grasses, or potted plants along the ceremony isle to transform your outdoor space into a verdant garden!   

Bohemian   

Bohemian chic style is so relaxed and ‘un-fussed’, that the choices are endless. Wedding bouquets in this style are also peaceful yet very eye-catching. Most boho brides love to choose wild or field flowers because this naturalness is right what they need; try to add original boho details like feathers, leaves, branches that will enliven the bouquet and stylise it.   

Formal/Black Tie   

Just because you opt for a formal wedding, does not have to mean you choose the most expensive flowers! If you’re having a formal black-tie wedding, your flowers should be on the more traditional side. Flowers like white calla lilies are timeless and elegant and still popular for formal weddings, while bright pink ranunculus are playful and add that all important pop of colour to a bouquet or table centre piece. Arrangements with a mix of white and green bouquets, comprised of roses, ranunculus, mini calla lilies, freesia, and other beautiful blooms can add that wow factor.   

For centrepieces, a great tip is to keep flowers at eye level with elevated candles to offer height and refinement to your table design.   

Eco-friendly/Natural   

Just because you want to be mindful of the environment (as we all should be) at your wedding, doesn't mean you have to skimp out on the little things. You can use forest foliage and herbs like lavender, berries and daisies and plants instead of flowers all give that ‘sustainable; look!   

Christmas Wedding   

It may be cold outside, but don’t let that stop your creative self, perfecting the ultimate festive wedding. ‘Warm’ your style and take your winter wedding to the next level with Christmas tree inspired décor. Think rich reds and deep greens. Flowers like Roses, spray roses, lisianthus, eucalyptus all tied with red and gold ribbon add to the festive effect. A classic winter flower like the Amaryllis is a stage stopper! Don’t be afraid to use sprigs of holly or poinsettia leaves to white roses and rustic pine cones, all give that ultimate festive wedding feel.
