How to do Summer Wedding Flowers on a Budget

Saturday, July 25th, 2015

Just because the budget is tight, it doesn’t mean wedding flowers have to break the bank. There are plenty of options for couples looking to be cost-effective while still creating a beautiful, special day. There are many options to cut the wedding flower cost in the summer – with the opportunity to be married outdoors in a garden that may well have an abundance of flowers to brighten the day. In-season flowers are more affordable when looking for budget wedding flowers, or the wedding party could grow their own, opt for foliage arrangements or choose an alternative to flowers altogether. There’s no chance that wedding flowers on a budget can’t be as lovely and special as any others.

Go for green. As an alternative to a floral bridal bouquet, consider having a beautiful bouquet of foliage. This fresh look is subtle and elegant, a wonderful complement to a white dress and importantly is a more affordable option than traditional wedding flowers. Succulents are very fashionable and come in a range of textures, colours and shapes – many looking much like flowers themselves. They can make beautiful bride and bridesmaids flowers on their own or can be featured with other greenery or flowers. Ivy is ideal for winter weddings, while thistles and heather are perfect for Scottish occasions. Silvery eucalyptus or delicate, fringed ferns are another unique choice for a foliage focused arrangement.

Vegetables like artichokes and kale flowers are beautiful alternatives to flowers, very on-trend and perfect for summer wedding bouquets. Consider traditional fragrant herbs (thought to keep bad spirits away) like rosemary, sage and thyme for a simple bouquet – and these can be grown in anyone’s garden before the big day: another great way to save some pennies.

Instead of wedding flower decorations for the tables, consider creating rustic looks with moss, bark, pebbles and other findings from the forest. This is particularly good for an outdoor wedding. Of course, if the venue is a garden, field or woodland, nature provides the flowers and greenery itself! Herbs can be used again for table settings and tied to napkins and winding centrepieces can be made out of leaves and other foliage to drape across the centre of the table. Fern leaves can be displayed in mismatched glass vases to add interesting shapes and freshness to the design. Succulents are great additions to wedding flower table designs, or use potted ones as a wedding favour and place setting.

Grow your own. An alternative to buying flowers from wedding florists is to grow your own wedding flowers. As long as you get the timings right you can grow foliage and herbs for your bouquets and table displays, as well as flowers. English garden flowers like cornflowers, daisies, roses and foxgloves all bloom in summer and are perfect for creating rustic looks. It’s charming to know that the flowers have been grown by the wedding party, and adds a very personal touch to the proceedings! Some may wish to grow wedding flowers as their wedding gift. Pick flowers two days before the wedding, strip off any greenery below water level and place in water in a cool dark place to keep them fresh before the ceremony.

Flower alternatives. Instead of wedding flower bouquets, there are lots of floral alternatives that are more affordable, more unique and give the chance for the happy couple’s personalities to really shine. Large paper flowers are a striking choice – and the bridesmaids can all have different colours. Bridal wedding bouquets can be made of many different beautiful items including feathers (such as peacock or ostrich), gems and jewels, even something sweet like candy canes can be used (perfect for a fairground themed wedding!). Silk wedding flowers are another choice to go for – and these will last forever, creating wonderful memories of the special day.

Similarly, the ceremony and reception doesn’t have to be decorated with flowers. Fairy lights and bunting will look beautiful for both, and candles on tables can be a great alternative to flowers. These could be tea lights for a more rustic occasion, floating candles or elegant church candles displayed in lanterns. Branches decorated with jewels and lights are a great wedding flower alternative or go natural with natural made of wood, bark and moss. Alternatively, a sea theme could use gathered shells, pebbles and sand to create lovely decorations.

Choose cheaper flowers. Instead of expensive blooms like roses and peonies, go for none the less lovely wedding flowers like carnations, chyrsanthemums and gerbera daisies. Both of these flowers are available in a range of colours and can be made into delightful bouquets and table decorations on their own or with additional foliage. Baby’s breath is very affordable and very popular at the moment for brides flowers and wedding table displays. It’s romantic and a lovely neutral colour to suit all decors and themes. Growing your own flowers is another way to ensure summer flowers are in season, and also doesn’t cost the earth. It’s also important to ensure flowers are in season to create cheaper bouquets and arrangements that don’t have to be imported. Investigate which flowers are in season in the month of the wedding and ask your florist to create arrangements made of these.

Keep it simple. Single bloom bouquets and arrangements will always be more affordable than more complicate and elaborate looks. Many flowers look stunning on their own, and in single colours, such as roses, lilies and tulips. A bouquets of daises is perfect for a rustic, laid-back wedding (especially an outdoor do) while sunflowers are readily available in summertime and create glorious, colourful but inexpensive wedding bouquets and centrepieces. Even if the bride’s bouquet is more show-stopping, bridesmaids posies could be made up of just one of the flowers to create smaller, delicate designs. For a Scottish wedding, a spray of heather is traditional and charming while a bouquet of lavender is a lovely look for any wedding that looks to keep things simple, affordable and classic.

Winter wedding flowers and winter flower arrangements

Winter bridal bouquets are best designed as a balance of white and bright colours or soft pastel contrasts. Blue & white design winter wedding bouquets strike this balance perfectly—like in the white ranunculus design. A compact bouquet of creamy white ranunculus decorated with the smaller buds of pink ranunculus and Grape Hyacinth (also known as Muscari); this is one of the most popular winter wedding flowers bouquets. A profusion of tight blossoms and cones plays with the traditional geometry of bridal bouquets. Long stemmed flowers and dusky, green-tones for foliage frame this London wedding flowers theme somewhere between the stark beauty of winter landscape and the fresh promise and

renewal of the New Year. Winter wedding bouquets come in all sorts of shapes and colour themes. Depending on the theme and style preferences for each couple, everything from bridal bouquets to the winter wedding reception flowers can take on a brighter or more subdued look, something that is edgier and bolder, or blended and a part of the entire landscape of the venue. Todich Floral Design has one such edgy yet refined bouquet, made up of blossoming red roses and peach peonies (also great for winter wedding corsages), green and lavender Grape Hyacinth buds and a combination of bright green foliage—flat-leafed and serrated edges.

Mocha roses are another top fashionable wedding colour theme this year. Ivory, cream, pink and orange hues, merengue yellow, and various shades of brown are blended together into some truly beautiful winter wedding flowers. The overall effect is satiny smooth and a crisp outline for each distinctly coloured blossom. And not only does the Mocha colour theme turn out to make great winter bridal bouquets, but they are versatile, equally elegant and fitting for winter wedding corsages and buttonholes. In a combination of rustic and regal, this colour theme is uncommonly warm and striking for winter wedding buttonholes.

While many opt for summer weddings, a winter wedding offers so many opportunities to express your creativity and create an event of true beauty and wonder. We’re here to help you in planning a winter wedding theme reception – from bridal bouquets and decorative wedding flowers, to table centrepieces and venues. Find inspiration in these winter wonderland wedding ideas from London Todich Floral Design.

White Wedding Flowers 

White is the word for a winter wedding – so look to the beautiful snowy blooms you could choose to create the perfect bridal bouquets. Full white blooms like roses, ranunculus and peonies are will make the perfect addition to your bouquet – creating a fullness and sumptuousness that you can embellish with other blooms and foliage. With its silvery tones, eucalyptus makes an elegant addition, or you could go for more unusual choices like purple kale flowers or star-shaped succulents. Hydrangeas and anemones are also beautiful choices for your white wedding flowers. For embellishments to winter bridal bouquets think of miniature pine cones, sparkly baubles and glass jewels.

Of course, your bridal flowers could add a dash of colour to the décor and have a natural look- you could have a bouquet of spruce and red berries tied with twine and hessian, or a bouquet incorporating pine cones, winter greenery, berries and roses. Or choose red and white roses with berries and a hint of greenery, tied with black velvet ribbon, for rich, deep coloured bridal bouquets. You could also paint the edges of your blooms with sparkle- gold for red and silver for white – to add that extra special shimmer to your winter wedding flowers.

Wedding Dresses

You could say that every white wedding dress fits the bill for winter wonderland wedding dresses, and whatever you choose will look stunning on the day. But if you want to wrap up from the chill, you could incorporate a faux fur stole or cape to create a period-drama look for your dress, and choose bridesmaids stoles to match their dresses. Sparkly nails for the bride and bridesmaids will also jazz up the bridal bouquets and will look lovely in photos.

Lace and sparkle certainly fit the bill for the dress of a winter bride, and these can be incorporated into the hairstyles too. And a while a white wedding flowers will create a harmonious look, a contrast of deep purple (such as calla lilies or irises) or green foliage and red berries for bridal bouquets will create a striking look. You could choose to dress your bridesmaids in shimmer and sparkle (whether gold, silver or off-white) but dark colours such as purple, black and dark red will also work beautifully for a winter wedding.

Wedding Floral Decorations

There are so many possibilities for decorations for your winter wonderland wedding theme. Whether your reception is in a hotel, a country house set in beautiful grounds, a castle or a garden, winter wonderland wedding venues offer plenty of inspiration for creating a magical setting for your marriage. Start creating the magic at the ceremony, and dot the aisle with lanterns or candles. You could add a scattering of snow, silver baubles, and even line the aisle with sparkly winter trees or wind fairy lights around trees or branches. This is also a wonderful idea for the outside of the venue – add glittery lights to the trees as guests arrive to set the scene.

Wedding flowers for a winter wedding are traditionally white, and you may choose for the centrepieces and floral decorations at the reception to match the brides and bridal bouquets. Roses, lilies and ranunculus are all beautiful choices and can be made into elaborate displays or displayed in glass vases for a simpler but nonetheless elegant look. Display your flowers in silver or sparkling vessels, or fill vases with baubles. You can even add a silvery finish to your blooms, or add gold or silver painted foliage to floral displays.

Winter wonderland wedding colours take inspiration from the surroundings of the season: white, silver and sparkle to reflect the twinkling frost, or warmers shades of green and red like the evergreens and berries that adorn gardens and forests this time of year. Of course, you can mix them up for your winter wonderland wedding decorating: offset white and silver decorations, white chairs and tablecloths with vibrant green and red floral centrepieces.

Take a cue from the natural surroundings for your winter wonderland wedding decorations and stand your place settings in pine cones; add a sprig of pine, holly or a coil of rosemary to napkins; or write guests names on baubles – both a lovely surprise and a favour to take home! Candles on tables are a must to create the perfect atmosphere – and these can be small candles dotted over the tables or larger white ones that can be incorporated into centrepieces. Or your centrepieces could be miniature trees or displays of winter branches, embellished with jewels hanging like icicles or coiled with fairy lights.

If you’re looking for crimson-themed winter wonderland decorating ideas, consider using red flowers like roses, gerberas, amaryllis or tulips in your displays, or add red berries and holly to centrepieces. You could fill vases with red baubles, or add them to a bowl of water topped with floating candles for a beautiful embellishment on tables. Add candy canes to place settings for something fun, or use red napkins on tables and add red ribbons to the backs of guest’s chairs.

There’s no doubt that a winter wedding can be truly beautiful affair, with so many possibilities for creating a fairyland feel. Whether you choose to focus on white, silver and sparkle or add a touch of warmth with greens and reds to suit the season, there’s no doubt your winter wonderland wedding will be the romantic, special occasion you deserve.

Top Winter Decoration Design Ideas from Todich Floral Design

Friday, January 9th, 2015

How much have you been enjoying the winter season? Hopefully plenty! At Todich Floral Design, we’re enjoying the loveliest aspects of winter. We love it for the holiday season, Christmas and New Years, and the magical, snowy transformation of the outside world. Because if you’re not in hurry, who doesn’t love an evening snowbound, at home, wrapped in blankets, fire roaring, hot toddy in hand? Now, check out some ways to bring the winter theme indoors, using Todich Floral Designs winter wonderland decorating ideas, while still keeping the cold outside.

Make Winter Wonderland Decorating Fun by Creating Your own Snowy Silhouettes

This is especially kid-friendly but also great fun for adults who want to take a hands-on approach to the winter decorating theme. Seek out some winter wonderland templates and some heavy white paper—or for the more artistically inclined, try sketching shapes yourself in pencil—then cut the outlines out with a scissors and hang them up with string. Snowflakes, crystal shapes, wintery branches, reindeer, snowmen and evergreens are great designs to start with.

Winter Wonderland Themed Decorating

White on white flower arrangements — Small, simply and intimate flower arrangements are a wonderful way to bring the beauty and theme of winter inside your home.

Try out fresh white roses, peonies, orchids or tu- lips, in glass vases or flowerpot arrangements. Christmas bouquets and fresh flowers for flair can brighten up kitchens, di- ning room tables and living rooms. A potted poinsettia plant, lilies and berries flower arra- ngements, or daises on a windowsill are a pictu- resque view from the armchair as well as a wonderfully welcoming sight to visitors.

Evergreens and Indoor Houseplants

Don’t forget about the other aspect of the 2015 winter season— the holidays! Evergreens and houseplants are great holiday decorating ideas. Christmas winter wonderland decorating ideas like small poinsettia plants, miniature evergreens, even ferns, all add an enlivening contrast to the stark white palette that you’ll find outside. If you actually don’t have enough white and possess a do-it-yourself attitude, then try applying white paint to thin tree branches for indoor display. Just make sure you remember to leave them outside long enough to dry! Also consider traditional Christmas pine wreaths or, a fancier spin, baskets that combine pinecones, cinnamon sticks, ornaments and even fresh fruits. Don’t be surprised if you find these splashes of green leave you with an elevated mood and in the best of holiday spirits!

Put Your Winter Gear on Display. Having a Winter Wonderland Party?

Take a pair of laced ice skates, the red sled or old toboggan, and put them outside by the door or on the patio for a fine winter deco- rating theme display.

Lights, Lights, Lights!

No home speaks a welcome or has winter wonderland invitations like a brightly lit home. Crystal lights, candlelight, Christmas lights and a glowing fire are several ways to add warmth, seasonal appeal and a cozy vibe for you, your family and holiday guests.

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.

white-flowers-wedding-bouquet-white-calla-lilies-bridal-bouquet-for-London-brides-white-wedding-bouquet-wedding-flower-trends-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.

Wedding-Bouquets-035_900

Now we’re going to delve into how to make sense of some the trickier, more nuanced details and underlying meanings of wedding flowers arrangements, especially for the upcoming 2015 season. 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.

By using Todich Floral Design, we can create the best floral designs to enhance and compliment your private events. Through our knowledge and understanding of colour, we know how to effectively use the colours of the event flowers we have, to elevate the design of a room, to be as ascetically pleasing as possible. Thereby creating a great atmosphere that personifies the brightness and fun of summer by using the following colours

PINKS- are very versatile. the use of the bold and beautiful pinks ;like fuchsia, magenta and hot pink gives new meaning to the idea of a ‘blushing bride’. Pink can be bold or soft. The very colour implies good luck and romance. Pink is not only dreamy but sophisticated.

AQUA TURQUOISE- its versatility means that it can add a touch of glamour. Turquoise is a colour that evokes ideas of the Caribbean. The soothing calm of the aqua turquoise water screams relaxation. The cheerfulness of the colour just screams picks me! Not to mention that turquoise is a colour rich in history, once the favoured colour of ancient civilisations such as a Mesoamerica.

ORANGE- as a colour is vibrant and bright. The idea of event flowers in this colour conveys passion, desire and enthusiasm. It conveys the fascination you have with your lived one. This colour is ideal as a rose because it acts a symbol for the bridge between friendship and love. They would also make great flowers as a gift to express how proud you are of your loved one.

YELLOW-is the classic symbol of cheerfulness. It is bright, bold and optimistic. It is a great compliment to lime. As a colour and part of an even floral design, this will lift spirits, expresses good cheer, along with a general wish for well being.

As a top LondonUK florist, who supports the local suppliers, by getting our private event flowers from new Covent Garden flower market, we know how demanding planning any event can be. Thus it is no coincidence that the popularity of bold colours this year is used for their soothing, calm and bright characteristics.

Floral designs are not there to detract from the occasion but to enhance it. Event flowers are used not only to create the best atmosphere possible, but also to brighten up a room. They are there to capture the romance of the mood, if it’s in the case of a wedding. Or they are used to celebrate and convey the joy and happiness that individuals are feeling.

Therefore contact us at Todich Floral Design and our event florist in London, can advice and help you in the planning of your event. If you are looking to move away from the traditional colours of ivories, creams, as well as the pastel of last year, we can help you. Let us, with our knowledgeable event florists; take the stress away from you, in trying to establish how to use the bold colours of this year into your event.

The following are some simple tips to help you on your way.

Tips on how to use bold flower colours in your event planning:

Bridal bouquet– roses come in all colours, therefore why not have combinations of cream and aqua turquoise event flower roses surrounded by green foliage, as your bouquet. Set against the white of the wedding dress, will bring brightness, whilst highlighting the beauty of the colours in the bouquet.

Table centre pieces– as the aqua turquoise colour is very bold, use it as the main attraction on the table. The event floral design that includes the turquoise colour makes the design into dramatic centre piece. While everything else on the table remain neutral and clean. The table is not over powered by the colour.

Table runners– using table runners in a bold colour of choice breaks up the monotony of having a base colour dominate the table. The table runners will add character, and interest.

Chairs– are some times forgotten in an event setting. Incorporate them into your event by adding touches of roses with the colour scheme of your choice, attached to the top corner of a chair, no bigger than a corsage, becomes a subtle way to add colour into your event, without going over board with the decorations.

Flowers available for summer bridal bouquets, flower arrangements, wedding buttonholes and corsages include: Aster (daisy-like flowers on upright stems), Alchemilla (a common garden flower with tiny yellow and green flowers), Carnations (long lasting and can be used on their own, in pomanders), Cornflower (a strikingly beautiful blue flower), Chrysanthemums (bigger flowers, with large petals), Dahlias (dramatic-looking flowers with a round shape), Delphinium (tall flowers), Gypsophila (very small white flowers), Hydrangea (a flower with an enormous head and often used for purple summer wedding flowers), Lavendar (a lilac flower with a fabulous aroma), Nerine (clusters of delicate flowers), Nigella (gentle, papery flowers; also referred to as ‘love in the mist’), Peonies (big, soft, papery  flowers), Phlox (a favourite country garden flower), Roses (a classic flower available all year round and in numerous colours), Sweet Peas (short-lived flowers with beautiful colours and a gorgeous fragrance), and Zinnias (similar to Dahlias).

Wedding Bouquets 220 wmDifferent types of summer wedding bouquets

A simple image search online will show you what these seasonal wedding flowers look like and provide plenty of inspiration for different styles of wedding bouquets and wedding reception flowers. If you’re having bridesmaids at your wedding, you will probably want flowers for them too. Traditionally, bridesmaid bouquets are similar to the bride’s bouquet, in slightly smaller versions. However, they don’t necessarily need to be the same shape.

You can pick and choose from a number of different shapes for your summer wedding bouquet including the classical, neat, round posy bouquet, a cascading or teardrop bouquet, an oval bouquet, a heart-shaped flower bouquet, a loose, natural hand-tied, or for younger bridesmaids, pomanders, baskets, wands or mini hand-tied designs. Pretty, loose petals also make a lovely addition to summer weddings, and can be provided in baskets for younger bridesmaids to scatter down the aisle as they walk.

Table Arrangements 0552Popular flowers for summer weddings

Roses, dahlias, hydrangea and peonies are particularly popular for summer wedding bouquets. These full, blowsy flowers all make excellent leading ladies in summer wedding flowers and arrangements. Smaller, delicate flowers like aster, lisianthus, cornflower, nigella and phlox make lovely additions, as do sweetly scented freesia and sweet peas. Gypsophila, or baby’s breath, which features tiny clusters of pin-sized white flowers has also seen something of a resurgence and is often now used alone to create romantic, white wispy clouds of flowers. Carnations and chrysanthemums also often get a bad press, but they come in a huge choice of colours and shapes, some really pretty varieties and make great, cost-effective secondary flowers to help fill out designs. A good florist will discuss wedding flowers prices with you and help you make the most of your budget, so be sure to provide an indication of this when you start discussing ideas.

Spring Wedding Flowers and Colours

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Most people will tell you that summer is their favourite season. But here at bridal florist Todich Floral Design, we'd stand to argue that fact, especially when it comes to weddings. 

Rose wedding boquets. Wedding flowers London, 2014.

Spring can be one of the best seasons to have a wedding for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, the flowers. This is the season for bright, cheerful wedding flowers. Tulips, daffodils and other beauties are at their prime during spring and you can be sure that you will get these flowers fresh and at a reasonable price.

Tulip wedding bouquets

Tulips, for example, come in such a variety of colours that you will be sure to find the shade you are looking for, or if you are looking to go multicolour, with this wedding flower you will get a palette as wide as you can imagine. One tulip shade that is really pretty is a light dusty purple. This is a shade that will work magnificently on its own. Or you can combine it with bright yellow flowers for a wedding to make a brighter impact.

This is a shade that will work magnificently on its own. Or you can combine it with bright yellow flowers for a wedding to make a brighter impact. If your wedding is going to be more toned down, refined elegance, then intersperse the light purple wedding flowers with deep egglplant coloured ones.

Rose bridal bouquets

Of course, roses are one of the main flowers symbolic of love and give you a whole palette of colours to work with. One really great spring wedding flower idea is the combination of orange, white and yellow roses, with the bridesmaids wearing pale violet dresses. The contrast and the perfect spring palette of this combination really catch the eye.

Using daffodils as spring wedding flowers

Fresh daffodils are hard to get in any other season, so if you are fan of this wedding flower, or the colour yellow, a spring wedding is the perfect opportunity to take full advantage of it. One lovely idea is to use monochromatic daffodil bouquets, with bridesmaids wearing different shades of the spring palette. This combination looks best with pale coloured dresses and bright bridal flowers, as if the dresses and the flowers are bright it can be a bit too much.

Daffodils do not only come in yellow but white as well. There is a light airiness to a bouquet of delicate paperwhites, which cannot be compared to any other flower. Bunched together this flower looks like a collection of pretty little white stars and will look very up-to-date and fresh at a spring wedding. Plus they smell wonderful too!

Spring wedding props

The one tricky part of weddings in the spring is that the weather is not quite as predictable. So you always want to have some kind of rain-proof solution, in case the weather turns on you. One lovely outdoor wedding solution is to have colourful umbrellas hanging over the seating area. If you have an indoor venue, umbrellas can be given away as gifts, and in the UK you can be sure your guests will make use of these even after the wedding has passed.

It’s not only flowers in London that bloom in spring but love as well, so if you have always wanted to have a spring wedding, we say don’t hesitate!
