Luther Burbank once said, “Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food, and medicine for the soul”. However, their significance and importance kept changing and growing over time. But what hasn’t changed is their reverence and use in different events.

Therefore, in the case of wedding events, flowers have a huge impact on the overall look and feel of the big day. From your bridal bouquet and boutonnieres to your table arrangements. They are the perfect way to add colour, fragrance, and texture to your wedding. So, before you start dreaming of your perfect wedding bouquet, read on the most popular wedding flower variety together with the wedding themes and seasons they are fit for. 

Autumn wedding

Cymbidium orchids- According to the language of flowers originally published in Charlotte de Latour’s Le Langage des Fleurs back in 1819, the orchid means “you’re in my thoughts.” However, these flowers do not only elevate a tropical-inspired wedding but also portray one as a thoughtful lover. They are available in a range of autumnal shades including pink, yellow, orange, and burgundy, they work beautifully with other brightly coloured blooms for a vibrant arrangement. If your celebration will be colourful stick to an all-white palette and you won’t go wrong.

Hyacinth Legend has it that in the language of flowers, a hyacinth represents constancy, while blue hyacinth expresses sincerity. For a spring bride, Mascari grape hyacinth can offer that something blue. They are perfect for hand-tied posies and they mix well with tulips and ranunculus for a spring bouquet textured table arrangement.


For summer wedding

Daisies- Summer and daisies just go hand in hand! They serve as a symbol of “sharing feelings,” so go ahead and arrange them around the altar for when you read your vows. These are perfect for whimsical and bohemian-inspired arrangements.


Lavender- Fragrant lavender is the perfect floral pick for those planning a more rustic, vintage wedding. They are known to represent purity, devotion, serenity, grace, and calmness. In addition to the flower’s significance, its purple colour also comes with great symbolism. Purple is the colour of royalty and speaks of elegance, refinement, and luxury. You should consider inviting these exquisite blooms into your bouquet or décor.

For a Winter wedding

Kale- you’re not alone in thinking that kale is just a vegetable that’s good for you. Far from being just food that you’re not quite sure what to do with, kale also comes in the form of flowers. It is becoming more popular for brides during winter for unique, earthy arrangements.


Helleborus: Hellebore flowers are best suited for relaxed, whimsical arrangements. Hellebores are available in a range of colours, but we love the darker burgundy variety for a moody winter bouquet. they stand for serenity, tranquility, and peace. Even in an indoor space, you can still create a beautiful garden inspired wedding by bringing some of those magical elements inside! If you are dreaming of a garden wedding at a pretty barn wedding venue, these are the flowers to go with.


For spring wedding

Jasmine- Jasmine is another popular spring variety due to its heavenly fragrance! These wispy, delicate vines are the perfect addition to hanging foliage arrangements, to make your entire reception smell amazing. It often symbolizes love, beauty, or sensuality and they blend in well with an Indian-inspired theme. Sometimes Indian brides use them as a hairpiece to complement their look.


Lilac- This is another beautifully fragrant bloom with a unique texture that makes a gorgeous addition to colourful bouquets. The pretty pastel shade of lilac flowers makes them perfect for a spring wedding!
