Sophisticated Orange Wedding Bouquets


There tends to be a misconception that orange is only an appropriate color for a Halloween wedding or a rustic one in a barn. In fact, orange can be quite a stylish color, and it conveys a certain sense of confidence that is very appealing. These are design ideas for sophisticated orange wedding bouquets.

When planning wedding bouquets, naturally it all starts with the flowers. There are many flowers available in orange, and they will each create their own special mood. Do not think that the only orange flowers available will be autumnal mums or casual gerbera daisies; some of the most glamorous blossoms of all come in stunning shades of orange. To keep the effect really strong, consider creating bouquets entirely out orange flowers, perhaps with a few accents of a secondary color mixed in for more drama. Purple and lime green will create especially nice contrasts against the orange.

Nothing is more exotic and sophisticated than orchids. Gorgeous orange Vanda orchids look absolutely breathtaking wired into showy bouquets. These are the perfect flower for a bride with exquisite taste who wants something eyecatching and unique for her bouquet. If you love the idea of custom bridal jewelry (perhaps even bridal jewelry custom made with a touch of orange?), handcrafted letterpress invitations, and a couture bridal gown, you will adore marvelous Vanda orchids.

If you are looking for a really romantic orange flower for your wedding, think about ruffly parrot tulips. They make a gorgeous bouquet, one that is chic and upscale. At the same time, parrot tulips look like the type of flower that could be seen spilling out of a vase in an Old Masters painting. They are truly beautiful, and are a great bouquet option for any bride who like tulips, but wants to take them to the next level.

Another sophisticated orange flower for bridal bouquets is the ranunculus. If you are not familiar with this smallish round flower, it is a very circular blossom with tightly packed petals. A ranunculus almost looks like a paper flower, which makes it a very interesting textural addition to a bouquet. These beauties are both sophisticated and non-fussy, making them very versatile for weddings from elegant to relaxed. The ranunculus also pairs nicely with other roundish flowers such as roses.

Speaking of roses, they are a perennial favorite among brides, and they definitely do come in some shades of orange. They range from a light orange to a brighter shade to a rusty terracotta color. Orange can be a fantastic alternative to red for roses in bouquets as they are much more original and unexpected. They have all the fire and passion of red roses, but a more unique character. Combine several sizes of orange roses with hypericum berries for gorgeous bouquets for the entire bridal party.

No discussion of wedding flowers would be complete without talking about lilies. One of the most popular wedding blossoms, big showy lilies add instant flair to a sophisticated bouquet. Especially dramatic are exotic Gloriosa lilies with their large petals. Ideal for Asian inspired bouquets and centerpieces, orange Gloriosa lilies have an unmatched glamor perfect for the bride who really wants something special for her wedding flowers.
