Orchids are really special flowers. They can stand on their own or add texture to an arrangement. These beauties also come in different shapes and color, making it easy for you to choose the ones that would fit your overall theme and of course, personality. Orchids are available all year long and they are strong enough to withstand an outdoor wedding. Also, they can hold-up a long period of time without water, making them a good choice for bouquets, boutonniere, corsages and other wedding elements.
Taking orchids down the aisle
When it comes to taking orchids with you down the aisle, you have endless options. Orchids come in different shape, size and color making them highly experimental. For a sleek and clean look, go with an all white orchid bouquet. You can also try soft colored orchids with roses, hydrangeas, peonies, even dusty millers. For a more exotic look, you can pair up vibrant colored orchids with other blooms of your fancy. It's lovely how a same flower can pull of different look and style.
The meaning behind the flowers
Orchids has been said to symbolize fertility, luxury, perfection or beauty, and love. The ancient Chinese interpreted them as a symbol of refinement and purity. Carrying these meanings, without a doubt, orchids are well-suited for such a special day like weddings.
