At a wedding every item must compel perfectly in the decor regarding the style, the colors. Even the cars must be decorated. It is not an absolutely necessity but most of the grooms choose to do it as it is part of their wedding.
Ancient beliefs say that herbs, plants and flowers are protective from many points of view. As they are ingredients for many medicines they also are protective from spirits. In other words, they take care of body and soul. And when it came about wedding ancestors used to deck out the carriages and grooms outfit with herbs and flowers due to the fact that they were representative, a symbol for fertility and prosperity in the wedded life. Nowadays this habit has lost its meaning but it remains as a decoration part to a wedding.
First of all, as any other part of this kind of event, wedding flowers for cars need also attention to details and a proper decision. One has to take into consideration that these flowers must be the same as the ones used for the reception decorations and flowers arrangements. As for the colors the things are also related to the whole wedding concept. The same for the rest of the decorations, the wedding flowers for cars are a symbol, are representative for a wedding style.
Part of the work is accomplished and the only thing remained is the shape of flowers bouquets for cars. A bunch o flowers arranged with no pretentious design is not quite an options but neither a fancy and too costly arrangement. Consequently, one can choose a little bouquet, as hand tied ones for the maids of honor. They are suitable form many points of view: little sized but elegant, affordable regarding the price so a successful final result.
As grooms worries are not enough there is another aspect to be mentioned. Depending on the weather but also on the distance between the chapel and the wedding reception location the flowers for cars can suffer some damages. It is more than unpleasant but things have to change as no one wants to have at the wedding, when grooms make their appearance at the church with a car decorated with dispersed flowers. Consequently, count the distance or think twice considering the season: if it is a rainy day or a windy one. From this point of view, of course that artificial flower is the most convenient option: cheaper and in case they are damaged the loss is not a too important and costly one.
Furthermore, no matter the type of flowers the size is also an important aspect. Not too big as they create a “cheesy” aspect, not too small and insignificant as they have no aim. The middle is the best way and after all a relief regarding the payment. The wedding flowers bouquets for cars are not part of the wedding itself so that big ones are not necessary. A too decked out car is indeed a sign of richness but the aesthetically sense must have a word to say. The decision is yours.
Brides interested in carrying a more appealing and special type of bouquet perhaps will enjoy feasting their eyes on these lovely pictures posted on this page below. In terms of wedding flowers and arrangements, original means crafty, alternative, creative, unconventional, eye-catchy, glamorous, one of a kind, artistic, exquisite, noncomformist or untraditional. The modern bride is not free to compose her own original wedding bouquetthe way she wants, following, of course, the very aspects or features of the wedding, such as the theme, the venue, the formality or the season.
It’s almost crucial for a contemporary bride to plan a unique wedding bouquet that can add more glamour, sophistication and glow to her wedding day look. Now that so many accessories and decorative items that are usually artificial are “permitted” in weddings, more and more modern brides of today are barely considering a flower wedding bouquet. The real fresh flowers that used to be the top priority for wedding bouquets are now ignored and replaced with more interesting, funky and wild artificial alternatives.
We should not generalize though and say that all the contemporary brides are only interested in everything that is fresh, innovative, voguish and crafted. We are trying to say that the natural innocent and pure bridal look is not being promoted that often as the cosmopolitan vanguardist artificial look! In this article we tried to show you only original wedding bouquets composed of real natural flowers and not fully crafted bouquets made of all kinds of bling-blings and dazzling accessories. We have nothing against the idea of dressing up a simple flower wedding bouquet and make it a more extravagant and eye-catchy accessory that the bride can wear on the wedding day.
In fact, we recommend all brides – both conservative and modern to free their imagination and try different types of arrangements and decorative items that can beauty their wedding flower bouquet in order to make it look more inviting, more sophisticated and exquisite. There are plenty decorations that you can use to accessorize a plain and unattractive wedding bouquet, but it all depends on the season, formality and theme of the big event. For example, if your wedding is to be held on a sandy beach or on an exotic island then you can always use a few seashells – natural or fake, corals, starfishes and pearls to make the whole arrangement more sensual and thematic.
For vintage brides who want to go a little bit old stylish, we recommend the feathers. Funky brides can use buttons, origami or paper made flowers to decorate the bouquet, while glamorous brides can use sparkling wires, monograms, beaded symbols, brooches, rhinestones, gemstones or swags and crystals to obtain a more astonishing sparkling look.11
The displaying of your wedding is supposed to last longer than a usual wedding celebration therefore you have to consider the option of purchasing the flowers that last longer in the décor of your wedding event. In this regard you have browsed all by yourself for the flowers that last long, but you have not come across the blooms that you have selected to represent you and your beloved one in the atmosphere of your wedding: the cornflower and the blue iris.
You have chosen these two blossoms in the floral ambient of your wedding festivity because each of them means something for you: for instance, cornflower, the blue one is the flower that belonged to your German grandparents, your grandpa being the one to favor it as he always said that this blue blossom used to be an inspiration for the Romantic symbol of the German writers. He even used to read you a lot from Goethe when you was a child and even if those words didn’t make too much of a sense in your little girl’s mind, your grandpa came all the time with fabulous stories to complete the readings in an accessible way leaving your mind and heart to dream beautiful for the rest of the night.
On the other hand, blue iris is the flower that has the stylization of French royalty (your groom’s grandparents being French by birthplace) inside its blooming, and it is also the one to have gathered the meanings of faith, wisdom and hope. You are both sentimentally connected to the existence of your grandparents since your childhood was spent next to them, and you feel more related to them than to your parents. And both of you have decided to celebrate your wedding with some elements included in that way that they may honor the presence of your grandparents in one way or another.
This is another reason that you expressly come up with the choice of blue silk wedding flowers cornflower and iris: you want for these blooms to last longer both inside the wedding unfolding and many years after the wedding event has ended. You want to have two of your wedding silk floral decorations presented as a gift for your grandparents for the fact they have attended to your event, and for thanking them to have them as exceptional grandparents.
The selection of these silk made blooms has to be combined with choices of other colors of various artificial blooms, but you search for the ones to look natural in photos and while present in your hands when you will hold the bridal bouquet containing blue silk wedding flowers cornflower and iris. In this matter you consult with the local florist who regretfully announces you that the choice of silk cornflower is not among his floral arrangements, but he can assist you in ordering online for the specific ones.
The bridal bouquet will be the one to comprise together with the blue cornflower and blue iris the choice of white roses and carnations and some green accents to complement the overall aspect of the bouquet conferring it at the same time the sparkle of naturalness that the silk-made flowers lack. The table arrangements will be taken care of and for the table of your grandparents a special floral decoration will wait for them, decoration that later after the party ends they will take home with them as an immortalized moment of the present carried into the future.11

Calla lilies are most often seen in their white displaying of their petals with the sparkling yellow pistil emerging from the middle of the bloom.

Another combination would be using the same red calla lilies with the white delicate bloom of the baby breath to add an effect of tiny white pearls to the elegant red twisting of the calla lily’s petal. The yellow hypericum can work too with the red of the calla lilies, the same way as Anastasia Spider green flowers, with their long, slim, delicate petals, go in combination with red calla lilies.
