Wedding Flower Arrangements
Consider traditional flower arrangements when you plan
your wedding and select your flowers. Traditional flowers
make some of the most beautiful and timeless wedding flower
arrangements available. You can select traditional flowers
based on the flower meaning attached to them or the color
scheme of your wedding. You can also choose silk wedding
flowers based on the same factors, or if your taste is for
something not so traditional, there are wonderful exotic
flowers you can choose for your wedding.
Roses are perhaps the most traditional wedding flower of
all time, and are the ultimate symbol of love. Red roses
create a beautiful splash of color for a winter wedding,
while a peach or white rose bouquet will look amazing at
your summer wedding. Tulips, calla lilies, and
lilies-of-the-valley are also popular wedding flowers
because they are easy to pair with other flowers and match
with different wedding color choices.
Different traditional wedding flower arrangements have
different meanings. Irises represent warmth of affection.
Tulips and red chrysanthemums represent love. The popular
lily-of-the-valley signifies a return to happiness.
Forget-me-nots embody true love and remembrance. Calla

with the main flowers. Spray items such as the fern signify
sincerity, confidence and shelter.

and bridal party flowers. Bring flowers into your wedding
with corsages, headdresses, and wedding guest chairs. The

topiaries, sprinkled on the tablecloth, and floating
The colors and types of flowers you choose help to set

white calla lilies is a traditional combination that evokes
feelings of joy, serenity and peace. Pink tulips paired with
Bells of Ireland make a gorgeous combination that sets the
stage for a cheerful celebration. Create feelings of
happiness and love with daffodils and forget-me-nots.
Traditional wedding flower arrangements can be anything

help you select your color theme and takes the guesswork out
of choosing your wedding flowers.
