Roses and peonies are one of the most beautiful wedding flowers and you can find them in abundance during summer months. White and blush pink are the most popular wedding colours, and if you add a bit of foliage to your arrangements, you will get the perfect summer centrepieces.
If you want to add a bit of texture to your wedding centrepieces, but want to stick to a classic white and pink colour palette, consider incorporating baby’s breath, Queen Anne’s Lace, lisianthus, dahlias or hydrangeas. We also love the majestic calla lily in centrepieces because it oozes with romance and the fragrant tuberose, which is especially suitable for bouquets and boutonnieres because it smells so divine! However, if you prefer wedding flowers in brighter shades, try combining different hues into opulent arrangements to create a fun contrast with your ivory backdrop.
Australian native flowers can be very interesting in bridal bouquets and wedding centrepieces. King protea blooms in February have a rich texture. It looks very festive, so you can place it in the centre of your centrepiece or put single blooms in narrow vessels. The waratah is also eye-catching with its bright and glamorous blossom and blooms in January. Billy buttons will add a pop of bright yellow to your arrangements and looks great with white and green centrepieces, but can also be a lovely detail in any colourful arrangement. They are available year-round and florists simply love them because they make a statement in every flower centrepiece.
If you picked a white and blue wedding colour scheme, then the delphinium is just perfect! It looks beautiful in vases and bouquets, and it comes in different shades of blue and white. Zinnias have very vibrant shades also, so you pick the one that suits your theme or combine various hues to make colourful centrepieces. The water lily is romantic and elegant reminiscing Monet’s paintings and comes in rich violet and pink shades while the purple lavender is the perfect addition to your rustic country wedding. Amaryllis also comes in an array of colours including salmon pink, bright red and watermelon, and its unique tubular stem is very decorative.
