Corsages and Buttonholes to Suit all Wedding Styles

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

Whether a single flower or a mini bouquet, corsages make gorgeous addition to wedding outfits. They can harmonise with a dress in paler shades of pink, cream and peach, or can really pop against a wedding dress in dramatic shades of red, purple or yellow. The flowers of the corsage can be mirrored in the more-subtle buttonholes of the groom and groomsmen, and of course in the bride and bridesmaid bouquets and table decorations. It’s a lovely extravagance to have at such an important, romantic event! Wedding corsages can be created to suit any themes and styles.

Rustic. Simple, delicate blooms are ideal for a rustic wedding, invoking ideas of gardens and a care-free spirit. Sprigs of baby’s breath or wildflowers can be used to create corsages and buttonholes, and can play the starring role in wedding bouquets and table decorations. Herbs like rosemary and lavender can make delightful corsages and button holes, adding subtle shades and an aromatic fragrance. Materials like hessian, twine and black ribbon can add to a boho look. Fashionable succulents can even be added to a wedding corsage to create a beautiful, quirky look.

Woodland. There are so many beautiful choices of greenery for wedding flowers that they can be the starring role in your corsages and button holes. Ivy and ferns can be styled into beautiful miniature arrangements, or form the base for floral corsages made up of a flower such as roses. More unusual foliage like thistles can be added (especially appropriate for a Scottish wedding!), and forest features like tiny pine cones, moss and woodland flowers can also be incorporated to create the perfect designs.

Classic. For many planning their wedding, it has to be roses! These versatile, timeless blooms have long been associated with romance. Available in myriad shades, shapes and sizes, it’s easy to create any look for wedding corsages and buttonholes with roses. Pale yellow roses will perfectly harmonise with a white or ivory wedding dress, and a single bloom will make an elegant addition to a dark suit. Ribbon, tulle and delicate embellishments of fine foliage and flowers can add to an classic rose corsage. Calla lilies also make stylish, classic choices for corsages and buttonholes, their white or yellow blooms perfectly fitting with any wedding colour-scheme.

Orchids. These mysterious and exotic blooms make perfect wedding flowers. Their elegant shapes make them fitting for a starring role on a corsage or button hole, and will certainly create a wow-factor. A single orchid can be the perfect choice – and of course there are so many colours to choose from. From classic white or pale yellow, to romantic reds and pinks or unusual purple or green, orchids corsages are available in any bride’s favourite colour. For a more extravagant look, an arrangement of deep pink orchids and intricate greenery will look truly stunning on any bride, adding a dash of colour and drama to her look. A single bloom of these will make a perfect, complimentary buttonhole.

1. Dome Flowers

Carnations, Roses, Ranunculus and Peonies

A classic flower dome made from carnations, red or white big-bloom roses, peonies or ranunculus in a silver vase on a pedestal is a striking, elegant way to decorate at your wedding ceremony.

2. Christmas Weddings Bring Added Joy and Cheer to the Season

Douglas Fir, White Pine, Norway Spruce, Angels and Ornaments

If you’re planning a Christmas wedding, allow yourself to be inspired by the season. Fir, pine and spruce—all evergreen Christmas trees can be set off to either side of the alter. Angel ornaments, golden stars, silver and bright red orbs are a lovely addition to your ceremony.

3. Entranceway and Archway Flowers

Blush Roses, Hydrangeas, Babies Breath, Queen Anne’s Lace

Wedding guests are always so excited by beautifully arranged flowers. So what better way to greet them at entranceways, by decorating arches and church steps, and with sign decorations? Vintage milk jug vases filled with daises, hydrangeas and blush roses, or pedestal flower arrangements, are warm ways to welcome family and friends for winter weddings. Consider a chalk-drawn ceremony sign with simple, angelic garlands made up of babies breath flowers or Queen Anne’s lace.

4. Candelabra Floral Displays

Pedestal Flowers, Candelabra and Windowsill Floral Displays

Add a lovely candelabrum decorated with flowers on your wedding day. Place candelabra near the alter, on windowsills (with the candles unlit), and on pedestals throughout your venue.

5. Church Wedding Pew Decorations

Church Pew Flowers, Roses, Green Ivy and White Ribbon

Decorating church pews and the pew ends with flowers is an enduring tradition, whether you have an English countryside wedding, a vintage style wedding, or something that’s a little more chic, with plenty of glitz and glam.

There’s lots of room for creativity, too, no matter what your wedding theme. A rosebud, tied with twine and bright green ivy is one option. Simple greenery and foliage with white satin ribbons is another. For church pew flowers, simplicity is really the key!

6. Decorate the Alter With Candlelight

Altar Flowers, Vintage Wedding Flowers

Warm the atmosphere of your wedding ceremony even more with softly glowing candles. Candles can find their way into all sorts of wedding decorations. You can light them at the alter, as well as in vintage chandeliers, or by highlighting the aisle.

7. Aisle Flowers

Pink, Blush and Bi-colored Rose Petals

Aisle flowers at your ceremony, including blush or light pink or bi-colored rose petals scattered down the aisle, are a way to have fun and rejoice in love’s abundance!

8. Christmas Wreaths for Winter Weddings

Christmas Roses, Rosemary, Jasmine, Mistletoe

At your ceremony it’s time to go classic—add a traditional Christmas wreath to rustic doors, at the entrances and doorways, and throughout your ceremony venue. Christmas roses, rosemary and jasmine, and mistletoe are other fine seasonal touches.

Tis the season after all, right? Embrace each other, celebrate your future together and add to the joy and good tidings of your wedding day by including Christmas wreaths in your wedding decoration.

Top Tips From Florists For Wedding Flowers

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

Choosing the perfect wedding flowers can be the most exciting part of planning a wedding – but also the most difficult! There are so many to choose from it can be a bewildering experience at first. But wedding florists like Todich Floral Design are on hand to help: they are experts in the field and know exactly how to create the perfect wedding floral displays to suit all tastes, styles and budgets. Read on for some top tips from florists to avoid mistakes when planning wedding flowers.

Wedding Florist Tips

Come Along With Ideas for the Wedding Florist 

Every wedding florist wants to create the perfect floral look for the happy couple, so its useful to bring clear ideas to help guide them. Some couples have favourite flowers, or flowers that have a special meaning. Think about colours, too, and be sure to tell florists what colour the bride’s gown and bridesmaid’s dresses will be. Mood boards are also a great way to get the creative juices flowing and give the wedding florist a clear idea of the desired look and theme.

Budget is Key 

Flowers are an important element to most weddings and can make a beautiful occasion truly memorable. They typically cost about 10% of every wedding budget, but some brides make the mistake of forgetting to factor this in until the last minute. It’s important to discuss budget with the wedding florist as early as possible so they can tailor the types and flowers and designs to meet the cost. If flowers are particularly important, be sure to be realistic about the cost and the type of flowers that can be bought within the budget.

Let the Venue Lead the Way

For outdoor weddings and those framed by parks or gardens, flowers could be kept to a minimum. If a garden has particular flowers, these could be reflected in the centrepieces and place settings on tables – think wildflowers for informal venues like a park or field, and roses or orchids in more formal settings. The shape of the tables will also inform the style and shape of table arrangements and other floral decorations.

Think About What’s in Season 

Flowers bloom at different times of year, so it’s important to consider what’s in season at the time of the big day. Seasonal wedding flowers will be cheaper and easier to source, and can also be a more environmentally friendly option. If a particular bloom is proving a challenge to track down, consider using a look-a-like flower. For example, ranunculus can serve as an alternative to peonies or roses while hydrangeas can be used as substitutes for sweet peas.

Leave Plenty of Time to Order 

Flowers are likely to be flown in from around the world – as far as South Africa and South America. This means that it’s important to give the wedding florist plenty of time to put in order to ensure they are at the best price and avoiding any disappointment.

Wedding Centrepiece - Floral Design by Todich Floral Design London

Charming Wedding Centrepieces

Vintage bird-cages make wonderful floral centrepieces for spring and summer weddings: a little bit quirky with a real wow-factor – just imagine beautiful flowers billowing out onto the table. You can choose traditional romantic shades of roses like cream, white and pink or go for a multi-coloured, multi-textured look of your favourite flowers. Wedding flowers could even be arranged in a nest for an Easter surprise, or one could incorporate natural elements like leaves, twigs and bark for a woodland feel.

Spring and summer wedding floral decoration is all about lightness and brightness: think yellows, blues and whites for spring and a multitude of different colours for summer. Choosing a single shade – like yellow – for floral centrepieces will create a really joyful look to the room, while adding blue or purple flowers will really make the yellow pop and add a sense of fun to wedding decorations.

Boho Wedding Decorations

Wedding flowers like daffodils, tulips, hyacinths and lily-of-the-valley are all perfect for a rustic wedding. These delightful, colourful blooms don’t need to be dressed up to make beautiful wedding flower decorations. Potted flowers can be used as place settings and make lovely floral wedding favours for the guests to take away with them. And don’t forget blossom when choosing flowers and decorations – clouds of pink and white delicate flowers will make stunning wedding floral centrepieces and can also be displayed around the venue.

As summer approaches, there’s the choice of beautiful garden flowers like stocks, sweet peas and roses – brimming with colour and charm. These blooms come in shades of purple and pink and are perfect for a romantic but rustic feel. Or more voluptuous blooms like peonies and anemones will create a richly coloured look – either as a full bouquet for wedding flower centrepieces or single blooms dotted about in mini mason jars.

Of course, for a boho wedding there’s no need for extravagant vessels to display your flowers – a vintage jug, soup tureen or mismatched glasses and bottles can make the perfect fun and pretty vases for rustic wedding flower arrangements.

Wedding Flowers on a Budget

If you’re worried about your wedding flowers cost, there’s no need to be. There are plenty of beautiful arrangements that will look beautiful without breaking the bank! Baby’s breath is a very popular and affordable choice – gathered into glass vases or jars, perhaps tied with twine or ribbon – these delicate white flowers make delightful wedding table decorations. Many wedding flowers like daffodils and tulips are also very inexpensive; choose a bountiful bouquet of single-coloured blooms as a centrepiece, or mix it up and make it multi-coloured.

Orchid Wedding Flowers: Create a Magical Wedding with Orchids

Monday, June 6th, 2016

Orchids are an endlessly fascinating flower that have captured the hearts and minds of the world for thousands of years. There are over 28,000 varieties of this flower which are found all over the world and they come in every shape and colour imaginable. For the ancient Greeks the exotic orchid represented fertility, but they also came to represent luxury for the Victorians who voraciously collected them. Today these graceful flowers are the perfect bloom to feature in wedding bouquets and decorations. Orchids are very versatile and can suit any wedding theme – whether the theme is classic or modern. Here we explore some ideas for how to create a magical wedding with this fascinating flower.

Orchid Wedding Bouquets

The curious curling shapes of the orchid lends themselves to cascade, teardrop and pageant wedding bouquet shapes. Blush pink phalaenopsis dance beautifully around pink roses in a cascade bouquet for a bride looking for a feminine and romantic style.

Create a classic bouquet exuding glamour from white orchids cascading with green foliage. Fluttering flowers in shades of pastel shades of peach and yellow can brighten a waterfall bouquet, while glittering gems make a design of pure opulence.

Although often used for formal arrangements, the stunning colours of these flowers lends themselves to more relaxed and celebratory spray bouquets. Juxtapose contrasting shades of orchids like lemon yellow paired with pink, or chaste white and raunchy crimson. This is the perfect choice for modern weddings going for a more modern or alternative feel.

Orchid Corsages And Buttonholes

The sturdy shape and striking appearance of orchids makes them perfect for the bridesmaid’s wrist corsages and buttonholes for groomsmen. Take one or two of the flowers featured in the bride’s bouquet to create a harmonious look for the wedding party. Pure white orchids work well for a traditional look, while a bolder flavour to wedding lends itself to bright coloured blooms in pink, purple or yellow. For an added element of luxury jewellery, pearls and feathers can be used to embellish corsages.

Wedding Centrepieces to Steal Hearts

With their thousands of varieties and colours, orchids are a versatile choice for wedding flowers. Whatever the theme of the wedding and taste of the couple, there are orchid arrangements to fit the bill. Ever surprising, these blooms don’t always have to be showstoppers: they also lend themselves to more subtle displays created from white and soft greens. Emerald striped lady’s slipper orchids make peaceful partners for white flowers such as sweetpeas and roses, while green dendrobium orchids can be added to green bouquets of ferns and succulents.

Sprays of orchids arranged in tall glasses will set a tone of timeless elegance for any wedding. White flowers can be enhanced with branches and full hydrangeas, while deep purple and bright pink orchids are talking points all by themselves. The flowers can even be dropped into glasses to float like exquisite spirits, and the addition of candles will complete the starry look.

Summer Wedding Flowers: Create the Natural Look for Your Summer Event

Sunday, May 15th, 2016

The natural, woodland look is perfect for summer wedding flowers. Even if the big day isn’t held outdoors, the sunlight and blue skies inspire the desire to bring the outside indoors and have decorations featuring greenery and rustic touches. Wedding bouquets are ‘undone’, centrepieces evoke the magical florist and everywhere are touches of nature to bring charm and beauty to the proceedings. Be inspired by the natural look and speak to your London wedding florist about how to tailor it to your style.

Natural Look for Your Summer Wedding Flowers London UK. Wedding Florist Blog Florist Tips and Advice For London Brides Wedding Inspiration Bridal Look

Natural Wedding Bouquets

Summer wedding bouquets for natural theme need to have the undone look, with different shapes and textures arranged together in a relaxed style. Bouquets should feel abundant and overflowing with flowers and foliage: pair full blooms like peonies and roses with tall stocks, dainty daisies and trailing foliage. Fasten with natural elements like twine or hessian. You can use a similar style for wedding buttonholes, bridal posies and floral place settings. Instead of wedding flowers, go eco-friendly and modern and choose a green wedding bouquet where foliage is the main feature. Incorporate kale flowers, berries, succulents or herbs for an unusual and charming look.

Magical Wedding Centrepieces

A glass terrarium filled with pebbles, succulents and air plants will make for an unusual floral table decoration and will be a talking point for guests. Incorporate natural elements like moss, twigs and woodland flowers to create stunning wedding centrepieces inspired by the forest. Wildflowers are low-key but beautiful options for wedding table arrangements: think chamomile daisies, cornflowers, bluebells and foxgloves. Summer wedding flowers gathered from the garden like sweet peas or English roses can be arranged in vintage vessels or simple glass vases for an elegant and natural look.

Charming Chair Decorations

Green, luscious foliage can be attached to the backs of chairs for the ceremony and reception with floral wire. Adorn with ribbons and flowers or just stay with the green and create a beautiful woodland vibe for the big day. Tie lavender to the backs of chairs to create a scented and delightful look, or tie posies of summer wedding flowers to the edge of each chair. These extra touches will really wow your guests and make the day magical and memorable for all.

Au Naturel Place Settings

Mini succulents make great on-trend place settings and also double as favours – they’re great, low maintenance plants that will brighten the bathroom or office. Napkins can be decorated with herbs like lavender or rosemary, or wildflowers and elements of the bride’s bouquet. Or instead of summer wedding flowers as place settings, write guests’ names onto natural found items like pebbles and shells. This means they’ll have a souvenir to keep to remind them of the special day.

Summer Wedding Flowers – Let There be Light!

A rustic summer wedding is best held outdoors – although this can be difficult with the unpredictable English weather! If you are lucky enough to have a warm and sunny day, create a magical look with paper lanterns, candles and fairy lights strung through trees and trailing over the chairs and tables. Candles can also be incorporated into floral wedding centrepieces and place settings.

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

London floral designer and wedding florist Todich Floral Design has its eye on the hottest wedding theme trends 2015 in all seasons: fall, winter, spring and wedding trends 2015 summer. Take a look at our top 7 flower trends for the year so you can plan your own dream wedding!

1. Roses are still everlasting — Wedding décor trends 2015 don’t make any exception to the popularity and beauty of roses. Symbolic of passion, romance and elegance, there is nothing that speaks more to love than the rose, and when two people come together there should absolutely be some perfectly arranged roses to reflect that love and augment the immense beauty and delight of the day and venue where friends and family have come to celebrate.

2. Flowers that are sensual and elegant (besides roses!) — Though flowers for wedding theme trends 2015 are consistently marked with different varieties of roses, there are plenty of other types of flowers to turn your wedding into an event blossoming with beauty. Yellow Tulips, orchids, calla lilies and peonies are just a few favorites for 2015.

3. Seasonal wedding flower displays and decorating theme that enhance the festivities — Flowers that are in season are a great way to save some money, get the freshest possible blossoms, and incorporate the natural beauty and sensuality of weather and landscape into your wedding. To fit some holiday decorating ideas, many couples are using seasonal fruits and non-floral elements, like barley or feathers, or cornucopia designs during autumn.

4. Bridal bouquets that don’t distract! — Sometimes the bride’s bouquet can become overly elaborate, busy with variety or blaring too many colours, and end up detracting from the bride herself. Simple can be better, especially for intimate wedding decorations. Monochrome roses, peonies, and delicate nosegays or posies are great options for the bride; as well as what’s popping up in bridesmaid trends 2015—we’ve seen berries, feathers, foliage, wheat and leaves (non-floral elements) in addition to smaller blossoms.

shower-bridal-bouquet-cascade-wedding-bouquet-wedding-flower-trends-2015. Wedding flower garlands  Garlands strung and decorated with beautiful wedding flowers and green leaves have an illustrious majesty. There’s something sexy and refined about them, and that’s what makes garlands perfect for weddings. Look for garlands wedding trends 2015 summer. Use them on chairs, combined into table centrepieces and receptions, and runners. Madagascar jasmine and strung votives are also wonderful!

6. Profusion, cascades and flowery abundance — By making an actual world full of flowers, you will be creating a true fantasy—a garden of delight, flowery escape or veritable forest full of blossoms—where bride and groom are at the center, and guests can enjoy and celebrate their love in this special day. Small winter wedding venues, or in any season, will glow with the warmth of love when filled with petal profusion—as table centrepieces or runners, bannister decoration, on walls and accouterments on surrounding landscape.

7. Lavish centrepieces and display dazzle — With winter wonderland wedding theme decorations, frosted and crystal trees are popular. Vintage and rustic themed weddings incorporate curlicues, garden hedge bases, branches and candelabras. More flamboyant and contemporary styled weddings rely on glass vases and elaborate (sometimes inverted!) flower displays, gold and silver glass tiered structures, and candlelit arrangements.

So get ready to see what’s trending! This way you’ll be able to avoid any flower faux pas, and make sure you pull off your absolute dream wedding into a cohesive, well designed finish. The first stop on our list is that of vintage wedding flowers

Vintage Wedding Flowers

This type of classically styled, elegant wedding décor is still very popular. When you think of weddings with a vintage theme there is going to be lots of thin lace, pearls, feathers, brooches and ivied columns. Lavender and white table clothes are wonderful choices. Heritage rose are second to none when it comes to selecting vintage wedding flowers—popular colours and variants on shades are dusky pinks and sweet corals, eye-catching thulian, antique peach, and lavish almond. Green foliage, white (to complement the lace), and yellow are excellent ways to balance pink hues. Other types of blossoms apart from roses—but equally refined—are gerberas, carnations and peonies. Sweet Williams are also delightful!

Rustic Wedding Flowers

A rustic wedding flowers the- me will be somewhat remini- scent of the vintage style. But the key difference is in that, while it remains somewhat nostalgic and unpolished, it’s very much bucolic. This emphasis on nature remains the biggest factor in rustic wedding flowers and similarly styled weddings, regardless of whether or not the ceremony is held in- or outdoors. The types of décor are often full of whimsy, delight and airiness. Think tulips and hyacinths, cascades and arrays of green ivy, spots of bright daises. Giant sunflowers are also a great way to mix up the dainty and more childish aspect of smaller and more delicate flowers, while losing none of the colour power, brightness or beauty. Tables spotted with French lavender or using succulents for any man’s boutonniere will make for a nice country chic look. For the ladies aiming for the rustic style, they can’t go wrong with flower headdresses or long stemmed flowers in bridal bouquets. Still need some rustic accents? Try a little burlap, twine or the muted flair of an aged ribbon.

Flamboyant Wedding Flowers

Flamboyance is all about making a scene. It’s grandiose, opulent, lavish in all aspects of wedding décor. In other words, it’s as far as you can get from the toned down luxury of the rustic and vintage styled weddings. Instead, this livened up wedding is likely to employ lots of contemporary centrepieces, slim glass vases, busy and exotic flower arrangements, and candles of varying height. True extravagance! Flower arrangements often use calla lilies, lush velvet roses, sensuous flowers such as anthuriums and flowers of paradise, orchids and blue roses. Flowers used around the base of these arrangements are better as ivory or white, to balance the colour array above. A few more affluent additions: any gold or brass ornaments, as well as rhinestones and crystals scattered across tables or draped over candelabra.

No matter what type of wedding and theme you prefer, remember that above all it’s harmony that matters. Colour, arrangement styles, personal tastes must blend together for a truly wonderful wedding. More than simple coordination, which only makes sure that nothing clashes, achieving true harmony amplifies the entire effect of your wedding décor. Just like the happy couple, it should be clear that every element is meant to be.

Lily of the Valley wedding flowers: tips and advice

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

Lily of the Valley is a popular choice for spring wedding flowers and was made even more so following Kate Middleton’s choice of it for her bridal bouquet when she married Prince William on 29 April 2011. Its dainty, white, bell-shaped flowers and gorgeous scent, combined with its symbolic meanings (the return of happiness, purity of heart and sweetness) make it a sought after flower for spring bridal bouquets, but this, plus its short season, mean it is categorised as a ‘luxury bridal flower’, so it carries a premium price tag too.

London bridal florist Todich Floral Design gets lots of brides enquiring about full Lily of the Valley wedding bouquets, particularly following Will and Kate’s wedding a couple of years ago. But they are often shocked by the bridal flowers prices, which can easily run up to £300 for a full bouquet, or even higher when it’s out of season. Often, due to its small, fragile flowers, stems also need wiring, which is time-consuming and costly work, and sometimes it’s only available to buy in small quantities, which can make it hard for florists to guarantee.

So what can you do if you have your heart set on Lily of the Valley for your spring wedding flower bouquets? Here at wedding florist Todich Floral Design we have the following tips:

  • Unless you’re prepared to pay upwards of £150 for your bridal and bridesmaids bouquets, consider bringing other spring wedding flowers in season in to the mix to pad out designs.
  • If it’s out of season or budget is a concern, look at similar, substitute flowers. Good spring wedding ideas that provide alternatives to Lily of the Valley include white hyacinths, campanula, bouvardia, stephanotis, muscari or snowdrops.
  • For those attracted to Lily of the Valley’s ability to bring a wonderful scent to their wedding flowers and bouquets, London florist Todich Floral Design recommends incorporating freesias and sweet peas too, to add more body and scent.
  • Consider just using it in your bouquets and/or wedding table centrepieces. Additional items like chair/pew-ends and entrance arrangements may only briefly be in view, and as Lily of the Valley is such a small, delicate flower, it may also get ‘lost’ in larger displays.
  • Find or hire a vase/vases which you can place your bouquet/s in after the ceremony. This way they can double up as displays for entrance or bar areas, your seating plan or cake table flowers, for example.
  • For all-white wedding flowers or bouquets, Lily of the Valley looks lovely combined with sweet william, hyacinth and murtle, which were the flowers in Kate Middleton’s bouquet.
  • To create a beautiful Lily of the Valley bridal bouquet with a bit of colour, combine with fluffy peonies, garden roses and sweet peas in cream and blush pink tones, or delicate delphiniums, campanula, hydrangea and lavender to bring in ‘something blue’, a huge trend for spring wedding flowers in 2014.

Finally, in case you’re wondering, below are the meanings of the flowers in Kate Middleton’s bouquet:

  • Lilly of the Valley: Return of happiness, purity of heart and sweetness
  • Sweet William: Gallantry, smile, finesse
  • Myrtle: Love (the stems were from a myrtle planted by Queen Victoria in 1845 are traditionally used in all royal wedding bouquets)
  • Hyacinth: Constancy of love
