Purple flowers are whimsical and unique. The rich purples of dahlias make a fanciful statement during a wedding ceremony, while pale mauve lilacs and lavender roses have an old-fashioned, artistic charm.
Yellow flowers are sunny and bright, and add a cheerful spirit to any celebration. Ask a florist to use yellow lilies, lemon-yellow snapdragons or brilliant yellow sunflowers in the floral designs for your summertime wedding.
Blue flowers include lofty blue irises, puffy hydrangea and striking blue delphinium. Ask for blue blossoms in a bridal bouquet as your 'something blue,' or to cast a cool tone over an outdoor wedding reception.
Orange flowers are perfect for fall ceremonies, and include peach or burnt-orange roses, dazzling dahlias and coral-hued gerberas. Ask for them in centerpieces, accented with tiny pumpkins and a curl of golden ribbon.
White flowers are as pure and clean as a fresh snowfall. Use white roses for a winter wedding, or calla lilies at any time of year. White daisies are sweet in springtime, while white chrysanthemums and orchids can be used all year round.
Pink flowers range from pale Asiatic lilies to vibrant hot pink gerberas and create a feeling of peace and harmony. A wedding table centerpiece might mix pink stock, larkspur and lisianthus with hot pink and light pink roses.
