Church Wedding Flower Ideas

The fresh scent of flowers permeate the air as coloured beams of sunlight stream from stained glass windows to create the fairy tale wedding of your dreams. Choose flowers as pure as the white of your gown or as unique as yourself to surround the pews. Whether you place them on the door, on the pews or up on the altar, flowers add beauty to any wedding ceremony.

White Flowers

As innocent and fragile as the lace on your gown, mix white lilies of the valley with touches of periwinkle and greenery to display at the alter steps and surround the wedding party during the vows. Perhaps you prefer white roses mixed with plumeria for a more exotic touch or the sweet-smelling gardenia to infuse the room with its scent as you float down the aisle in your wedding gown, or choose hyacinth for your display in all white.

Red Flowers

Place poinsettias around the room for a Christmas wedding or a bouquet of Gerber daisies combined with the aster, known as the "ancestor flower." Consider an arrangement that consists of the red tulip combined with the flaming parrot tulip, a hybrid tulip with a red cup and flaming yellow streaks on the leaves, or mix the red rust freesia with the delicate white star of Bethlehem for your seasonal wedding arrangement.

Coloured Flowers

Decorate the church with bunches of blue and pink hydrangeas or use a solid blue arrangement composed of the hyacinth and the iris. Another option is placing arrangements of pink calla lilies tinged with pink roses and hypericum berries by the pews and front doors to the church for guests to see as they enter. For a summer or fall wedding, use large sunflowers instead as they are known for longevity and loyalty.
