Wedding flowers are an integral part of just about every wedding, regardless of ethnicity, theme, style or season.  Regardless of whether you’re attempting to achieve an air of traditional design with your floral arrangements or just beautify your Los Angeles wedding venue, flowers hold a ton of life symbolism and serve as a way to color your wedding ceremony and your memories of it in your wedding photos.

Wedding flowers are fantastic pieces of décor that really add an element of personalization to your wedding venue or banquet hall of choice.  Here’s a few solid tips to consider when planning your wedding ceremony or wedding reception’s floral arrangements.

Incorporate Some Classic Wedding Flowers

There’s a reason classic flowers are dubbed as such: there are certain flowers that just colorfully represent special occasions well.  Here are a few “classic” wedding flowers and what they traditionally represent:

Lilly of the Valley: Happiness, joy

Gardenia: Happiness, joy

Orchid: Love, passion

Lilac: New love and life, Spring

Anemone: Expectation, commitment

Either of these flowers are great to incorporate in your arrangements, or even your bridal bouquet.

Wedding Colors

Nothing really allows you to incorporate your chosen wedding colors into your photo and décor more than your wedding flowers and bridal/groom party outfits.  One common mistake is to mirror the colors of your wedding throughout, but it typically comes across much better if you choose bright colors in your floral arrangements that compliment your primary wedding colors.  So if your colors are blue and purple, definitely splash in some whites, yellows and greenery to accentuate those colors rather than simply choosing a sea of blue and purple throughout.  Trust us, your wedding photos will thank you!

Create Backdrops

Remember to taper your floral choices based on symbolism—while that’s great and can add some personal meaning to your special ceremony, always keep an artist’s eye and consider the various spaces where you’ll be taking wedding photos.  A lush colorful background that compliments your décor and make your photos pop will give you a lot more satisfaction down the road when remembering your wedding.

Compliment your Los Angeles Wedding Hall

Remember to match your floral décor to the inside structure and interior design of your chosen Los Angeles banquet hall.  Clashing colors can ruin even the most well thought out floral arrangements.  If outdoors, use some floral options and colors that compliment the natural scenery, wherever you may be.
