Flowers have been used in weddings for centuries, likely since the earliest days of civilization. For example, the ancient Greeks wore garland wreaths during marriages and festive occasions. Even to this day, flowers are a quintessential wedding accessory. In addition to symbolizing growth and rebirth, wedding flowers can help create the atmosphere that guests remember, whether it’s lavish, simple, mod or traditional. In fact, every wedding we’ve ever photographed has incorporated florals in some way, including bridal bouquets, boutonnieres, aisle accents and elaborate table centerpieces.
Although flowers are a ubiquitous element of wedding decor, they are used in many different styles. Depending on the overall look of the wedding, the florals can be simple and understated, or exquisitely enhanced. Some of the most common bouquet blooms we’ve seen at weddings are fresh Roses, Lilies, Orchids and Hydrangeas. We’ve also noticed a recent trend of incorporating unique and distinctive flowers, such as drooping Amaranthus, Pincushion Sunburst Protea and seasonal Blue Mascari.
