As Emma McCullough from Fleuriste comments, ‘Orchids are a personal favourite of the Fleuriste team. are available all year round with more varieties available September to May, plus they are extremely versatile, available in all sizes, shapes and colours and are sure to add the ‘wow’ factor to any wedding. 

 

‘The colour loving bride will be spoilt for choice, while the bride wanting timeless elegance will incorporate cascading stems of white Phalaenopsis orchids to the bouquets, arrangements and finishing touches.’

‘Orchids have many properties which make them ideal wedding flowers, they are lightweight, therefore perfect for hanging installations as well as making them comfortable to carry as a bridal bouquet or as hair flowers. They also like warmer temperatures which gives your wedding flowers longevity to last the whole day,’ adds Emma.

 

So, if you think orchids are the flower for you, take the time to do the necessary research and see if your preferred orchid is in season during the time of your wedding. In the event your chosen orchid isn’t in season, keep an open mind and work together with your florist to find a different orchid that catches your eye and helps you stay within your style and budget!
