The floral buttonholes, bouquets and displays are undeniably a key part of any modern wedding. The flowers you choose can make a real style statement, and your particular combination of blooms is capable of being truly unique.

Here are some of the main factors that may influence your decision.


While it’s not too difficult to get your hands on your favourite kind of flowers, regardless of the time of year, it is lovely to reflect the season in your choice of botanicals. This could mean choosing something more hardy for a winter wedding, while spring and summer nuptials give you a huge range of options.


If your wedding is in autumn, for instance, you might want to go for something orange to reflect the changing season. Alternatively, you may want to choose flowers in your favourite shades, and are likely to want your blooms to match, or complement, the colours of the bridesmaids’ dresses.


You might like big, dramatic flowers like lilies – or you may prefer smaller blooms like tiny blue forget-me-nots. Maybe you like medium sized flowers best, such as elegant tulips. You could also mix up the size of the flowers you choose, to create an interesting and eye-catching display.


If you are having a themed wedding, then it makes sense to select your flowers accordingly. Then again, you could opt, for example, to use only wildflowers.


You might like lovely pastel coloured, rounded roses, or prefer something with a more dramatic shape – perhaps a little spiky? Whatever you go for, don’t forget to theme your wedding stationery to match.
