Ask any bride which flowers she is considering for her wedding day, and she is likely to mention the orchid. This elegant bloom, which throughout history has represented love, luxury, and beauty, remains the quintessential bridal choice. The flower comes in so many colors and varieties that orchid bouquet designs are limited only by your imagination. Are you planning a Nashville or Crieve Hall wedding? Here is some information on the amazing orchid that will help you in your floral decisions.
White cymbidium orchids are a classic choice for cascading bridal bouquets. These large blooms are pure white, with a splash of bright color in the center and along the edges of their petals. Cymbidiums are available in a wide range of exotic hues, including magenta, lime green and bright yellow and orange, making them easy to incorporate into any color palette. You may choose to create an all orchid bouquet, or to mix this sophisticated flower with roses, calla lilies and hydrangea for an eclectic and unique arrangement,
Two other types of popular orchids are the dendrobium and the phalaenopsis. Dendrobium varieties, which are the darkest purple bloom seen below, are small and delicate flowers that grow on stalks and are usually arranged in large bunches. Dendrobium blooms are vibrantly colored and exceptionally versatile. By contrast, phalaenopsis orchids are also known as “moth orchids” because they have large, fluttering petals that resemble moth wings. In the below centerpiece, the phalaenopsis is represented in the largest grouping of light lilac flowers with purple centers.
Orchid bouquets are beautiful whether minimalist or lavish, monochromatic or multi-colored, single-bloom or mixed arrangement. Orchids are equally appropriate displayed in an abundant design, adorning a lapel or garnishing a cake tier. They are sophisticated, opulent, striking and unique.
