Orchid bridal bouquet: options and ideas for combining with other flowers

If the bride wants to diver­si­fy her wed­ding bou­quet and make it orig­i­nal, then she should pay atten­tion to lux­u­ri­ous orchids. These amaz­ing flow­ers look great in mono-bou­quets and with oth­er flow­ers. This arti­cle will talk in more detail about such a won­der­ful flower as an orchid, about the pos­si­bil­i­ties of cre­at­ing vari­able wed­ding bou­quets and unusu­al flower arrange­ments with it. The main vari­eties of this flower and its unusu­al forms will also be described.

flower features

Orchids are con­sid­ered tru­ly bewitch­ing flow­ers, since their flow­er­ing time sur­pris­es many. On aver­age, they can please with flow­er­ing from three to eight months, which is why you can order bou­quets with orchids in almost any sea­son. In bou­quets, orchids last a long time, espe­cial­ly if they are reg­u­lar­ly trimmed.

Most of the vari­eties of this flower do not have any smell, unlike, for exam­ple, lilies. With the help of a vari­ety of flower vari­eties, you can cre­ate a tru­ly unique wed­ding bou­quet that will be the per­fect com­ple­ment to the ele­gant and roman­tic image of the bride. The fea­tures of orchids also include:

  • their sym­bol­ism on the occa­sion of the wed­ding, because these flow­ers rep­re­sent love, tran­quil­i­ty and the fem­i­nine;
  • the abil­i­ty to cre­ate a vari­ety of flower arrange­ments, includ­ing lux­u­ri­ous cas­cad­ing bou­quets;

The minus of orchids is a rather high cost, but it is still con­sid­ered jus­ti­fied.

It is believed that there are about 25 thou­sand vari­eties of orchids in the world and all of them are unique in appear­ance, includ­ing the shape of a flower, leaves, and even twigs.

Shapes and decorations

When com­pil­ing a mono-bou­quet, you can diver­si­fy it by choos­ing a non-stan­dard shape. Such a com­po­si­tion will look orig­i­nal, and there­fore get rid of the usu­al stan­dards and rou­tine. A cas­cad­ing bou­quet of orchids of the same col­or will be an excel­lent solu­tion for tall and sophis­ti­cat­ed brides, but short­er ladies should choose com­po­si­tions of a dif­fer­ent type, since cas­cad­ing options can visu­al­ly reduce beau­ties.

The clas­sic shape of a bou­quet — a hemi­sphere — can look very advan­ta­geous.

Such a bou­quet can be both mono and com­bined with oth­er flow­ers, such as peonies, ros­es and freesias. As a bou­quet dec­o­ra­tion, it is bet­ter to use dec­o­ra­tive green­ery. Depend­ing on the type and style, leaves of aspidis­tra, bergras, gyp­sophi­la, rus­cus, fern can be added to the bou­quet. Abun­dant green­ery with orchids can give a good vol­ume, which will be a def­i­nite plus in cre­at­ing a lux­u­ri­ous bou­quet. In addi­tion, dec­o­ra­tive green­ery is used to cre­ate a trop­i­cal effect in a bou­quet.

As the main dec­o­ra­tion for a bou­quet, it is best to order silk rib­bons, rather than ordi­nary paper ones. Silk not only looks more expen­sive, but also does not over­tight­en del­i­cate orchids. Some­times berries, feath­ers, sparkles and some oth­er ele­ments can be added to flower arrange­ments. But with all this, you should be care­ful not to make the com­po­si­tion taste­less.

Who will suit?

A chic bou­quet of orchids will suit ele­gant brides who want to cre­ate a sophis­ti­cat­ed look, pay­ing atten­tion to every detail. An orchid is exact­ly the flower that can empha­size the excel­lent taste of his cho­sen one.

Spe­cial­ists rec­om­mend that very young brides choose del­i­cate and nude shades of orchids.while old­er ladies can look for some­thing brighter and more sat­u­rat­ed.

Interesting ideas

On the Inter­net, you can find a huge num­ber of flower arrange­ments with orchids that you can be inspired by. Next, con­sid­er the most inter­est­ing ones that may appeal to con­nois­seurs of every­thing beau­ti­ful.

  • A clas­si­cal­ly shaped flower arrange­ment with yel­low-green orchids, lemon ranun­culi and white car­na­tions, as well as with the addi­tion of dec­o­ra­tive green­ery, can look very extrav­a­gant, ele­gant, and at the same time gen­tle and not ordi­nary. Such a bou­quet is spe­cif­ic in its own way, but will sure­ly become one of the most unique.
  • A bou­quet of white orchids and peony pale pink ros­es can look gen­tle, easy and inno­cent. In such a bou­quet, it is best to use ros­es and their buds to cre­ate an unusu­al and bewitch­ing com­po­si­tion.
  • A bou­quet of round­ed orchids in pur­ple tones can look bright, rich and bold. Such flow­ers can be dif­fi­cult to find, but they look real­ly roy­al, espe­cial­ly if pur­ple ros­es and pur­ple hydrangeas are added to the com­po­si­tion.

  • In a very favor­able light, a bou­quet can appear, where white orchids and green callas flaunt, as a rule, ros­es of the required shade and del­i­cate lisianthus are added to such a com­po­si­tion.
  • A wed­ding bou­quet with anemones, orchids and peony ros­es can look tru­ly lux­u­ri­ous. You can make it in a light ver­sion, and in milky pink, and in any bright one. If you add freesias to such a bou­quet, then it will turn out not only sophis­ti­cat­ed, but will also delight the bride with its exquis­ite aro­ma.
  • Despite the fact that hydrangeas them­selves are very lush, they are some­times skill­ful­ly com­bined with beau­ti­ful orchids in var­i­ous col­ors. Blue hydrangeas with blue or con­trast­ing white orchids look very advan­ta­geous. Such a bou­quet can be made both clas­sic in the form of a ball and hang­ing down. Clas­sic bou­quets are more con­ve­nient in that they can be placed on the wed­ding table, while hang­ing options can be prob­lem­at­ic.
  • Alstroe­me­rias of var­i­ous shades can also be added to a bou­quet with orchids. Such a com­po­si­tion can empha­size the light and del­i­cate image of the bride. As a rule, alstroe­me­rias are used as back­ground flow­ers, high­light­ing large orchids. Be sure to pay atten­tion to the com­po­si­tion, made in soft pink shades using white orchids, pink alstroe­me­rias and pow­dery minia­ture ros­es.

Of course, these are not all the most inter­est­ing ideas for cre­at­ing wed­ding bou­quets. A vari­ety of flow­ers can be added to wed­ding arrange­ments. They can be both exot­ic import­ed and sea­son­al. Here it is nec­es­sary to entrust the cre­ation of a bou­quet to a pro­fes­sion­al florist, who will not only advise the bride on cer­tain types of flow­ers and their vari­eties, but also pay atten­tion to the entire wed­ding look, because every detail is impor­tant here.

A wed­ding bou­quet with orchids can become a sym­bol of fam­i­ly hap­pi­ness, because it will sure­ly make an impor­tant day for the new­ly­weds per­fect. Orchids go well with many flow­ers, and there­fore it will not be dif­fi­cult for a florist to cre­ate a unique and author’s com­po­si­tion, which no one else had before.

With the help of frag­ile orchids, you can make a real cre­ation of flo­ral art, which will be imprint­ed on wed­ding pho­tos for many years.

What­ev­er col­or­ful or del­i­cate bou­quet is cho­sen, the main thing is that it reflects the wed­ding image of the bride, embod­ies her beau­ty and empha­sizes her indi­vid­u­al­i­ty. When choos­ing a flower arrange­ment, it is advis­able to give free rein to your imag­i­na­tion, and not just choose a ready-made bou­quet on the Inter­net. It’s best not to be afraid to exper­i­ment.
