Orchid Wedding Bouquets

Orchid themed weddings would not be complete without orchid wedding bouquets. To give you some ideas and inspiration I have put together the Orchid Wedding Bouquets video of over 20 bridal bouquets incorporating orchid flowers. Use the pictures in the video to help you get ideas to find the perfect orchid wedding flowers for your own bridal bouquet.

Keep reading after the video where I write about some of these orchid wedding bouquet ideas and the different varieties of flowers that are used.

 

There are three main types of orchids that are used for wedding bouquets and decorations.

Dendrobium Orchids

Dendrobium Orchid Wedding Flowers


Also known as Singapore orchids. These orchids have the smallest flower when compared to the other two varieties. They come in a good range of natural colors such as purple, yellow, orange, white and also available in stem dyed colors like blue. They are pretty and delicate look at but can also be exotic and tropical. If you would like to have a blue orchid wedding bouquet then blue dendrobium orchids would be the ideal choice. The flowers can be purchased from JR Roses Wholesale Flowers

 

Phalaenopsis Orchids

Phalaenopsis Orchid Wedding Flowers

Also known as moth orchids. The flowers are large and flat. These look beautiful when used in cascading bouquets. They can also be teamed with other orchid types such as the dendrobium orchids. Colors include white and purple and pink. They are modern and elegant.

 

Cymbidium Orchids

These orchids are quite hardy and will last well throught the day. They work well in wired bouquets. Available in a large range of colours including white, green, pink, burgundy and cream. Compliment other types of flowers well.

How to Save Money on Wedding Bouquets and Flowers

If you have ever thought about saving some money on wedding flowers you can do this by making your own wedding bouquet and centerpieces and floral arrangements.

Nadine Visscher who has been arranging flowers for over 15 years has written The Beginner’s Guide to Wedding Flowers. I have a copy of her book and have found it very detailed and informative. It gives step by step instructions with photographs and shows you how to create 12 different types of bouquets plus wiring techniques, corsages and boutonnieres, bows and so much more. You can find the book and more information at her website.

You can also save money by purchasing your own flowers. JR Roses Wholesale Flowers have a wide range of colored orchids available. They offer fresh flowers at wholesale prices and deliver them straight to your door.
