Any wedding ceremony will be incomplete without flowers. However, the type of wedding flowers used, depends entirely on one's personal choice. It depends on the bride's and groom's taste as well as the budget. It also depends on whether the couple wants the wedding to be a formal or a casual affair. While a formal wedding will require formal and stately floral decorations, a casual wedding ceremony can have more innovative and perfunctory floral decoration. So, it is entirely the couple's decision whether they want their marriage party in the church or in Las Vegas, or in the town hall or in some exotic holiday destination. Depending on the location, an experienced florist will make his choice of the type of wedding flowers to be used.
Common wedding flowers like rose, tulip, lily, aster, lilac, dahlia and gladiola are widely used for most wedding ceremonies. These types of wedding flowers do not require a very high budget and are suitable for most wedding themes - spring weddings, summer weddings, Christmas weddings and winter weddings. These are available in shades of red, yellow, pink, purple, blue and white and can be arranged in various combinations to create an array of exquisite floral beauty.
There are certain types of wedding flowers that are rarer in nature and are expensive. So, a good budget planning is required if you want to use these flowers for your wedding. Some of the rare flowers are jasmine, dendrobium, white lilac, asparagus, anturium, gentian, water ara and splengerium. Various types of tropical orchids are nowadays available and can be used to create wondrous beauty.
