Wedding Trends This Winter: Find Unusually Striking and Beautiful Winter Flowers

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

What are the most unusual wedding flowers you have come across? Now, you don’t want to get too crazy when it comes to winter wedding flowers. But as human beings we are naturally drawn to the exotic: the unfamiliar is interesting, intriguing, and strikes our curiosity in a particular way that can please the eye and leave us satisfied, or asking for more! Get your fill (for now) and find wedding flowers inspiration with these unusual and beautiful winter wedding flowers  


Hellebores Winter Wedding Bouquets

With nicknames like the ‘winter rose’ and ‘Christmas rose,’ it is surprising that this winter wedding flowers isn’t more popular in bridal bouquet designs and wedding decor (though it is, in fact, technically not related to the rose).

Five sturdy yet delicate-seeming petals on each hellebores stem blossom outward, curling up slightly like tiny cups or a hand upraised in joy, in a happy toast to bride and groom.

Foliage in Your Bouquet Design: Kumquats, Berries, and Ornamental Greenery

Don’t underestimate the beauty and celebratory power of natural, wild foliage and colourful to adorable berries. Decorative berries and tiny fruits are perfect if you want to tastefully adorn and add a bit of subtle flare to your bridal bouquet.

Kumquats, privet berries, blue berries, and holly berries around Christmas weddings and New Year’s weddings are natural ornamentation and suitable for the bright, festive atmosphere, especially in December and early January.

Some brides go all out, with even more rustic arrangements and natural wedding themes, opting for ornamental cabbages, kale and artichoke–even radishes!–in their bridal bouquets, buttonholes for the groom and groomsmen, and bridesmaid flowers and corsages. Pomegranates for winter weddings (and lemons in spring and summer) put a bold and vivid finish on the bouquet.

Tarantula Amaryllis Makes a Tantalising Floral Display

A flower that looks like a spider in your wedding bouquet? To be fair, this amaryllis doesn’t look like your average arachnid. Quite the contrary, actually. From the Victorian Language of Flowers, the amaryllis generally symbolises pride. Its petals flare outward in lily-like floral fashion, in a broad, gorgeous and sensual display.

Use Flowers to Create a Magical Experience

Freddy Grant of Bluethumb an Australian On-line Gallery celebrated getting married two weeks prior to legal proceedings on a beach in Darwin, where Frangipanis grow everywhere. Wanting to honour and remember this experience within the legal wedding, Frangipanis were incorporated into the official ceremony, in turn conjoining the ceremonies in one fantastic memory.

Cyclamen Can Be Oh So Neautiful this 2017 Wedding Season!

Cyclamen look like butterflies with their wings upraised, poised for flight or about to alight upon an outstretched blossom’s tender stem and sweet, perfumed and aromatic petals. So wait, would that make it a springtime flower? Well, not quite…

Cyclamen are a seasonal flower that can be grown in both spring and winter–so you can likely find your wedding flowers on a budget if the ever elegant cyclamen strike your fancy. Carmen red for Christmas bouquets and white flowers in monochromatic bouquet designs–paired with with peonies, roses or ranunculus–are beautiful combinations.

Two tone flowers are another, edgier possibility, if you want a more modern look and feel for your bouquet and contemporary wedding theme. White petals with a magenta or light pink spot near the stem are common; and deep red and purple with white fringed petals are another popular look among brides.

Best Bridal Bouquet Designs: Tips, Advice and Floral Trends for 2017

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

As a finalist for this year’s English Wedding Awards and nominee for Best Bridal Bouquet Designer in the London & LUX Innovation Award for Floral Wedding Design 2017, we at Todich Floral Design wanted to share some of the best bridal bouquets and designs out there, even on a budget…so without delay, here is some wintry inspiration, advice and matrimonial delight:


Consider The Many Flower Varieties Out There

The types and varieties of wedding floral arrangements are virtually endless, and yet so many brides come in to their wedding consultation knowing they positively want (or need!) roses and ranunculus in their bridal bouquet.

Roses, hydrangeas, carnations, different varieties of lilies and other flowers are available year round. Though some types of flowers are only available in-season. You might have a firm idea of what is right for your dream wedding, or you might be open to discussion bouquet designs and other ideas for wedding styles and themes. It’s always a good idea to talk it out.

Be Clear On Your Wedding Flowers Budget

You want to be absolutely clear on your flowers budget from the beginning. That means getting everybody involved, especially your partner! Getting people on the same page will prevent overspending and unpleasant budget surprises later on.

Be upfront with your wedding florist, too. Ask for a wedding flowers pricing guide and strategies for figuring out how much to spend on your wedding flowers. Dividing up your wedding flowers is one way to keep track of spending. If you consider personal flowers, there’s not just your bridal bouquet, but also the bridesmaid bouquets, buttonholes, boutonnieres and corsages for other members of the wedding party.

This way everyone knows what kinds of blooms (and at what prices) you’re looking at.

Ask Your Florist About Colour And Texture Of Your Bridal Bouquet

Selecting the colour and texture of your bouquet, or bridesmaid bouquets, is not a science. Nothing looks exactly like it shows up in the online brochure or wedding catalogue. Keep in mind that many of these have been colour cropped and adjusted to be ‘perfect.’

But by discussing colour and texture with your florist you can become more knowledgeable of colour pairings, two-tone and monochromatic colour schemes for weddings, and ways you might incorporate fun foliage and greenery. For example, white and peach peonies, lisianthus, white roses, sweet peas and woody branches create a wonderful colour balance if you are looking for a wild, natural and yet softer tone in your winter bouquet.

And you will be able to gauge expectations when you see your wedding photos!

See Where You Can Double-down On Stems

Keeping track of the number of flowers you’ve purchased and the amount of flowers in each bouquet helps you do two things. One, it’s another way for you to budget your wedding flowers–or at least keep a running tab in your mind. And two, if you know you have two or three varieties of flowers in your bridal bouquet, for example, you might be able to repurpose them in other kinds of wedding displays, like table arrangements, centrepieces and runners.

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.

8 Ways To Make Your Wedding Ceremony Amazing With Flowers

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

As important as it is to plan out your flower arrangements and beautifully decorate your wedding venue, there are lots of ways for you to create an elegant, classy and beautiful ambiance at the ceremony itself. See these 11 ways from London wedding florist Todich Floral Design for you to create an absolutely gorgeous wedding ceremony this winter.


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

It’s All About The Couple

Adeline Lawrence, Director and Event Manager from One & Together Events explains that “everyone’s vision of magical is different and so this is crucial to remember. If you keep this in mind and match this with the couple’s personality, the rest just falls into place. Getting the couple vision of magical is essential and this will help decide a number of other choices such as colour scheme, lighting, getting the right atmosphere and of course the flowers.”

Laura Dean from Hatton & Co Wedding Stationery, says: “Never underestimate the power of the bridal bouquet! Cutting costs on a wedding is sometimes unavoidable, but when it comes to the bridal bouquet, try to give as much wiggle room as possible. This floral design is going to be on every one of the photos that will sit on your fireplace, your parent’s fireplace or even your bedside table. This’ll last for years and it’s probably one of the photos that your children and their children will keep in the family forever.”

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 Flower Centrepieces for a Summer Wedding

Friday, July 8th, 2016

Summer is classic wedding season because of the lovely weather and abundance of beautiful flowers fit for decoration. Whether it’s an upmarket affair, has a bohemian festival feel or fits a unique theme, wedding table decorations really bring this special event to life. The wedding flowers adorning tables at a wedding reception will reflect the whole theme and beauty of the wedding, so it’s an important decision to make. Here are some ideas from London wedding florists to spark the imagination – from bird cage adornments to garden looks and flowers on a budget.




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.
