Wedding Flowers Cambridge: Some of the Most Popular Blooms

Whether you are choosing wedding flowers for a modern Cambridge venue, or a stately home setting, there are some flowers that always prove popular.

Roses are top of the list for wedding flowers and are a firm favourite with brides and grooms as they signify love and romance. They are a great choice for brides opting for a traditional, fairy tale wedding.

Another fashionable option for wedding flowers, Cambridge, are calla lilies, which signify grace and charm. A simple orchid in a clear glass vase is also great contemporary choice and means love and beauty. In addition, conventional lilies are also admired in both bouquet and arrangements and are an ideal selection for a wedding as they symbolise truth and honour.

If you want blue flowers, hydrangeas can be found all year round and mean understanding. Delphiniums are another good choice if you want the colour blue in your arrangements and add drama to displays because of their height. They signify lightness or swiftness and are a good selection for a country theme.

Tulips inject sunshine to a spring wedding – and they also signify undying love! And, for bouquets or arrangements packed full of fragrance, freesias are widely available in spring and summer.

Wedding Flowers Cambridge: How to Create Different Looks with Colour

In addition to your choice of flower, one of the things you will need to settle for your wedding flowers in Cambridge, is what colours to go for in your arrangements.

White means innocence and purity so it is always a popular choice for bouquets, reception and wedding ceremony flowers. To add to the romance of your special day, candles in your table arrangements will enhance the atmosphere of the occasion.

With white flowers your imagination is the limit! They look striking on lavish traditional pedestal arrangements or wrapped around pillars with stunning trails of ivy. If you want a more individual and contemporary style wedding, you can opt for a minimalist look to your table arrangements with spheres of white flowers on clear Perspex stands so your arrangements take on a sculptural effect.

If you want to bring colour and brilliance to your reception flowers, bold, exotic flowers in orange or yellows will brighten any venue. You don’t have to have large, impressive displays to create a vibrant look. A simple orchid in a clear vase is just as striking and is a great choice for a tropical themed wedding, either to reflect the bride or groom’s country of origin, or the honeymoon destination.

Blue, purple or lilac flowers are a good choice for a country themed wedding or to create a regal or majestic look. You can combine them with other colours, such as white, for a more muted effect or even yellow for the more daring.

And, if you can’t find your favourite flower in blue, anything is possible as you can even dye white flowers in the colour of your choice!
