Statement Red Wedding Flowers
Peonies are very sought after wedding flower. They are a very versatile flower and can be used with a combination of complimenting flowers or on their own, both with dramatic effects. At their best, peonies, similarly to roses open out to a luscious full bloom.
A less expensive choice than popular wedding flowers however just as striking. Dahlias have a longer growing season than the average plant which contributes to its cost effectiveness. The symmetrical flower makes a big impact and is a wonderful addition to any statement bouquet with some varieties blooming to as large as 30cm.
Red roses – the symbol of passionate love. This traditional favourite with brides are the embodiment of romance. Bouquets can be simple and elegant or mixed with an array of foliage for statement pieces.
Flowering Amaranthus is a uniquely dramatic wedding bloom. The relaxed trailing shape of the flower adds a luscious movement to bouquets and a terribly romantic element. Think whimsical and wild for your amaranthus bouquet.
