Find the right flower for your wedding style

Flowers are the glue that holds all wedding decor together. For better or worse, they set the mood for the entire affair, and they can really help drive home your theme or message.

Choosing which flowers to display at your wedding is actually quite easy when you think of it as an organized system. Each flower is categorizable by season, then type, then colour palette and finally, shape (or at least that’s how I think of it!).

Each type of flower has a specific look that sends your guests a certain message. Some flowers are warm and welcoming whereas some are more modern and stylish looking.

Oftentimes, the best way to choose your wedding flowers is to think about what theme and look you want to convey and then work backwards from there. To get the ideas flowing, I’ve rounded up some common wedding styles and a few of the flowers that go with them:
