Not a Rose in Sight - Why Roses Do Not Need To Be Your First Choice Wedding Flower

Often when you think of wedding flowers the go to flowers can be Roses. They are available all year long through the wholesale service and come in absolutely beautiful colours and varieties. However, there are so many other absolutely stunning flowers out there that they do not always have to be the first and only choice of flowers with beautiful choices of flowers available through each season.

It is controversial but dare I say it roses can be a little boring. If you want your wedding flowers, bouquets, ceremony and reception arrangements to feel a little different then why not steer away from the predictable roses and instead look at beautiful and seasonal alternatives.

In late winter and early spring daffodils and narcissi are beginning to become readily available and although not the first choice of wedding flowers do make an absolutely beautiful and unexpected choice. Little narcissi smell absolutely amazing, they come in different colours from whites to yellows and really are a perfect choice to lift the colours and feel of a chilly late winter wedding day. This bouquet was a dream for a late March wedding. Light weight but full of the most beautiful blooms.

Annenome are another fantastic choice flower for a winter wedding. With absolutely striking centres and a wonderful variety of colours available they really add an interesting depth to floral arrangements. For this November wedding we utilised colourful flowers adding in annenome and lisianthus for striking bridal bouquets.

In the Spring ranunculus are my absolute go to flower. They have round and full petals giving a real dramatic feel and have the most whimsical and floaty feel to them. I think I would pick them over a rose any time they are available.

For a summer wedding hydrangea stocks and dahlia are some of my favourite with their big and bold heads and striking colours.

Another great option is to incorporate an abundance of foliages and greenery to your arrangements for a timeless and seasonal style that is always in season and is never going to go out of fashion.

I hope that this gives you some ideas of less traditional wedding flowers and how you might be able to incorporate them into your bridal flowers for your wedding.
