Jul 17, 2023 | education

At AG, we’ve always admired the classic charm of roses, peonies, and hydrangeas in wedding arrangements. They exude romance and tradition, earning their reputation as top choices for wedding florals. But why not add a touch of the unexpected to your special day? After all, your wedding is a reflection of your unique love story, and it should be just as unique as your relationship.

Venturing beyond tradition, we’ve curated a list of seven stunningly beautiful, unique wedding flowers that are often overlooked. Incorporating these blooms into your wedding will not only make your arrangements stand out but also infuse an unexpected twist to your decor.

1. LILIES

Long-lasting and delightfully fragrant, lilies are a superb choice for wedding arrangements. Their large, trumpet-shaped blooms are undeniably eye-catching and come in a rainbow of colors from pure whites to vibrant oranges and deep reds. They are the embodiment of beauty, sophistication, and purity, adding an exquisite touch to any wedding.

2. CARNATIONS

Carnation (1)
Carnations have been enjoying a resurgence in popularity in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. These ruffled beauties, often associated with love and fascination, come in an array of colors and can be wonderfully versatile. Carnations can add texture and volume to bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces, making them a unique yet cost-effective choice for your wedding florals.

3. GLADIOLUS

Characterized by tall, slender stems adorned with multiple blooms, gladiolus flowers are an unconventional choice that promises to make a dramatic statement. Their height makes them perfect for large-scale arrangements or as striking decor pieces for the ceremony and reception venues. The gladiolus symbolizes strength, integrity, and infatuation, adding a layer of symbolic depth to your choice of wedding flowers.

4. ANEMONE

Anemone (1)
Anemones, with their distinctive black centers, are a striking alternative to more traditional wedding flowers. They represent anticipation, a fitting symbol for the start of your life together. Whether used in bouquets or as part of the table decor, anemones add a touch of classic black-and-white elegance and a whimsical charm to your wedding.

5. CHRYSANTHEMUM

Often overlooked for their more ‘garden variety’ reputation, Chrysanthemums, or “mums” as they’re affectionately known, are a versatile and vibrant addition to any wedding bouquet or floral arrangement. Originating from Asia and northeastern Europe, these flowers have a rich history symbolizing joy, optimism, and longevity.

Available in a wide range of colors, from subtle whites and creams to bright yellows, pinks, purples, and reds, chrysanthemums are incredibly adaptable to your wedding’s color scheme. Their diversity doesn’t end with color; chrysanthemums come in several different forms, including pompoms, spiders, buttons, and more. This gives you the flexibility to best suit your aesthetic.

Chrysanthemums are known for their durability and long vase life, making them an excellent choice for wedding arrangements. Their lush, dense petals can fill out any arrangement, adding volume and texture.

6. FREESIA

Freesia (1)
Freesias are delicate, funnel-shaped flowers that bloom along one side of their slender, leafless stems. Though less conventional, they are no less charming. Known for their captivating fragrance, freesias are available in a wide variety of colors, including white, yellow, red, pink, and lavender. These blooms are often associated with innocence and friendship – a beautiful nod to the foundation of any strong marriage. Incorporating freesias into your wedding bouquet or centerpieces can add a touch of understated elegance and intoxicating aroma to your celebration.

When planning your wedding, don’t be afraid to veer off the traditional path. Consider these stunning and unique flowers to add an unexpected touch of elegance and personality to your special day.
