Orchid Wedding Bouquets
There are a few things that never seem to fall out of fashion, like orchid wedding bouquets for instance! The lovely flowers we’re showing here today look fresh, trendy and extremely fashionable. Orchids are such versatile flower selection for a wedding that we don’t even know what to present you first. These flowers have many qualities and it’s always hard to touches all the important ones. It was difficult for us to choose only three pictures for this post.
The Internet is full of amazing bouquets of orchids created exclusively for 2012 brides. And we should mention that the contemporary bride is not necessarily a modern bride. We can still discuss about classic, traditional, vintage and avant-garde inspired brides. We like to think of orchids in a modern way, however. No bride is like another and this is where this diversity of styling and color in weddings of today! Orchids look like the perfect flowers for a wedding. Why we say this? Because they have a sculpted-like shape! Their impeccable look, soft petals, whimsy bloom and unique coloring make them sensational choices for a bride.
Those of you who want something exotic for your ceremony should consider hot pink orchids. You can also find fuchsia and magenta species that look extremely flashy and provocative. These blooms are perfect for tropical island weddings or other eccentric locations. If you care for a softer antique-like look, we suggest you consider pale pink orchids. The blush pink theme is also one of the hottest in this year’s weddings. You can use this coloring for a delicate romantic look inspired from the past or present.
Blush orchids can fit the vintage bride as well as the modern-classy one. If you prefer a more dramatic look, why not try purple orchids? The purple palette is very sophisticated and rich in unique derived hues, like plum, violet, mauve, lavender and lilac. You can choose perhaps a gradient style for your bouquet. The ombre effect is not only for wedding cakes, bridal dresses and other fabric wedding decorations. You can adopt this style also for your flower bouquet!
Start with pastel shades of pink and continue with darker tones of purple. Or, for a more outstanding look, start from white or pale rose shades. You can also add a few touches of burgundy and dark red. This will surely add more intensity and whimsicality to your bouquet. White orchid bridal bouquets are for any type of wedding. These blooms look elegant in cascading arrangements, but also in simpler hand-tied bouquets. If your wedding occurs on a beach or island, consider green cymbidium orchids. Mix them with white for a classier look. Yellow and brown orchids are great for fall weddings.
Also, just in case you need to carry the bouquets, you might want to take a look at a backpack. The Mengar Backpack is a waterproof foldable backpack that can secure smaller bouquets. For bigger ones, unfortunately, you will need to get a car or something similar.
