When organizing a wedding ceremony, literally every detail is taken into account. A special place in the image of the bride is occupied by a bouquet, which today has many compositions in a variety of color shades. A truly fabulous wedding will help to make eustoma in combination with roses, freesias, hydrangeas or chrysanthemums, complementing the wedding look with tenderness, lightness and youth.
What it is?
Eustoma or Lisianthus is a fairly large flower, with 8 cm buds. The composition based on this plant is quite large and lush. Such bouquets look perfect in the center of the festive table and in the design of the arch for the ceremony, which will resemble the entrance to a magical forest.
Initially, eustoma existed in only one shade — blue. A little later, decorators and designers fell in love with them so much that the breeders had to dream up and bring out other color variations.
Today, wedding decoration is not complete without white eustomas, symbolizing happiness and strong union. In addition to them, cream, peach and pink shades are used.
Much less common is the lilac, yellow, red variety of the plant. For people with a refined taste, the assortment has a unique look — a bud with contrasting edges.
On the territory of Russia, the cultivation of the plant is quite successful. True, the buds begin to bloom closer to summer. Therefore, if you want to buy them at other times of the year, you should contact flower shops, however, the price will be rather big. Imported Lisianthus are native to America and Mexico.
The bouquet made of them looks luxurious and sophisticated. And no expense will make you regret your choice.
This beautiful flower is distinguished by delicate and voluminous buds. Looking closely at the petals, you will find light waves at the ends that resemble a rose. As a result, this feature has awarded them with an additional, unofficial name — “Irish roses”. Florists prefer to combine them with white roses, creating a delicate and magical arrangement.
Eustoma by nature symbolizes youth and freshness — ideal for young mothers. Another meaning of these lovely flowers lies in inner peace and harmony.
In addition, the flower is associated with steadfastness of feelings, fidelity, warmth and tranquility. In a festive composition, it personifies love, happiness, purity, fun, justice and honor.
A Lisianthus wedding bouquet will emphasize all the beauty and charm of the bride walking to the altar, and will also express strong feelings and admiration on behalf of the groom.
It is believed that such a bright bouquet of roses and eustoma will make a young family happy, full of love, devotion and understanding.
The advantages of bouquets:
- lack of smell reduces the risk of allergies and migraines at the most crucial moment;
- on the basis of these flowers, bouquets of stunning beauty are created, giving elegance, sophistication and softness to any image of the bride;

The only negative is the prices.
Eustomas are characterized by voluminous buds, so the composition with them will turn out to be airy and fabulous. Such a spherical bouquet is very appropriate in the hands of a girl — it will emphasize her youth and femininity. A fusion of pinks, creams, as well as reds and whites, perfect for classic and sophisticated themed wedding décor.
The so-called Biedermeier is considered a traditional and very suitable option. Its essence lies in the use of rounded shapes.
If you decide to use this plant in making cascading bouquets that resemble a waterfall in shape, keep in mind that it will not attract much attention, but will only play the role of an addition.
Tips for creating a bouquet of eustoma:
- it is recommended to choose a bouquet that you can easily wear throughout the day;
- it is better to give up too fragrant flowers — after a couple of hours the smell will begin to bother, and will also cause a migraine;
- using eustoma in a bouquet, it will be an excellent option to use it in the design of the ceremony venue, table, arch, as well as for wreaths, boutonnieres, bracelets;
- roses, freesias, alstroemerias, orchids, callas and chrysanthemums will help create the perfect duet for Lisianthus.
In order for the eustoma to show itself in all its glory, you need to choose the right composition.
- hemispherical - classic wedding bouquets. Lisianthus buds should be pressed tightly against each other, and their stems should hold firmly on the bottom of the port bouquet. It is better to decorate the handle with a silk ribbon, attach a brooch.
- cascading is a falling variation that tapers from the base in the bride’s hand. Another name is “waterfall” or “drop”. It is preferable to choose such a bouquet for tall, slender girls.
- spherical, in other words, a spherical bouquet, is very popular today. This is due to its compactness, lightness and unusualness. It can be attached to the hand with a beautiful silk ribbon.
- Biedermeier It is a composition of round shape. The composition starts from the center — in the middle is the largest flower, which is surrounded by the rest, small flowers.
An elegant and discreet lisianthus mono-bouquet will personify tenderness, home comfort and love. An ideal addition to it would be a satin ribbon or a not too thin brown thread. The second option will create a feeling of simplicity and taste.
Do not overdo it — you do not need to attach butterflies, hearts and paper flowers, as well as beads in bright colors, it will ruin everything.
Florists and decorators consider white, purple, cream, pink and two-tone eustoma bridal bouquets to be the best options.

Similar buds can merge into one beautiful composition. Looks great in both single and multi-color options. Preferably, of course, the first variation — light in contrast with other colors always looks advantageous and tasteful. For example, delicate, pastel lisianthus petals will stand out beautifully among many bright red rose buds. A classic wedding ceremony requires restraint in everything, this also applies to the bouquet — try using white, cream or pink shades.
In addition to the light and airy image of the bride, we advise you to choose purple freesia in conjunction with eustoma. With such an accessory in your hands, a white dress will look great, standing out against the background of delicate flowers.
You can stab a freesia on top of your hairstyle, weave it into a braid, or decorate it with buds on a headband or diadem. It is best to tie with a bright ribbon or pearl beads.
A surprisingly delicate composition is obtained from lisianthus with exotic, tropical flowers — alstroemerias. This plant is a combination of exquisite forms and soft lines. In a duet with eustoma, it creates an incredible and luxurious effect. Saturated, deep shades can be suitable for a wedding ceremony; pastel, cream-colored buds create a special atmosphere.
A correctly composed bouquet will help to complete the fabulous image of the bride. Any other flowers in combination with delicate eustoma will make the composition exquisite, sensual, light, and at the same time so simple. Having decorated the festive hall and the wedding arch with several buds, the newlyweds and guests will be able to plunge into the fairy forest, where love and happiness reign.
