In honor of wedding season which is now upon us, we decided to ask our florists about one of the most searched for wedding flower colors: purple. It’s no surprise that purple wedding flowers are the most popular color; they work great for vineyard weddings, they pair well with both blues AND pinks, and they come in lots of pretty shades from light lavender to deep, dark purple.
Most Popular Wedding Flower Types
According to our local Carle Place florists, the top wedding flowers are:
- Mini calla lilies
- Stock flowers
- Phalaenopsis orchids
- Dendrobium orchids
- Spray roses
The best part? All of these flowers are available in shades of lavender and purple.
All of these flower types can be paired up with fillers, other flowers, foliage or left by themselves.
Some good flower combinations for bouquets would be:
- Hydrangeas, roses and mini calla lilies
- Roses, mini calla lilies, and stock
- Dendrobium orchids, roses, and freesia
By adding fillers and foliage to these combinations, you create texture and style. Some good filler pairings include dusty miller, seeded eucalyptus, willow eucalyptus, bulperium, hypericum, silver gray brunia, wax flower, heather, succulents, bear grass, aspidistra leaves, and other types of foliage.
If planning for a special look, using less combinations of material creates a more modern feel. An example could be all Phalaenopsis orchids with some foliage, or all tulips wrapped in aspidistra leaves. Another modern look is using all mini calla lilies.
