4 Tips for a perfect floral wedding theme

By  |  0 Comments

For many brides, the fragrance of flowers in bloom, the warmer temperature and fresh dishes make summer one of the best seasons to wed the love of their lives. And nothing screams summer more than floral. If you’re in love with the idea of a flowery wedding day, read on for our top tips.


1 One bloom to wow them all

Try working your décor around a particular in-season blossom. This will assist in bringing down the price of your flowers and ensure you have an abundance of blooms for your big day. Some of the seasonal flowers in South Africa  at this time of year include freesia (white, yellow, pink and red), amaryllis (white, cream and pale pink), arum lilies (white or pink with a yellow stalk-like center), carnations (white, red, pink and purple) and the Barberton daisy (a popular wedding flower that comes in bold colours like yellow, orange, pink, red and white).

2 Dress it up

Your table linen could be a bold floral print, a simple colour or even plain white dressed up with bursts of blooms or other decorative accessories. The trend for 2016 was to include metallics such as gold, bronze and silvers, however, the most common colours for the new season are canary yellow, orange, cerise pink, purple, turquoise as well as floral prints.

3 Take the cake

Tall cakes with fruit or flowers and naked cakes are the order of the day. If you’re more traditional, opt for white fondant or icing on the cake layers, embellished with roses or flowers.


4 It’s in the details

Floral accents don’t need to be relegated to your table settings and decor. Incorporate a flower or leaf print into your retinue’s wardrobe for a cute spin on the floral trend – think bridesmaids’ dresses, groomsmen’s ties or floral headbands.
