Choosing Centerpieces For Your Wedding

When it comes to your wedding day, centerpieces are one of the most important ways to display gorgeous flowers. Along with the bridal bouquet, they’re the floral arrangements that your guests will most look forward to seeing, and that will most define the style of your wedding.


Of course, there are many different styles of centerpieces. Depending on your wedding’s style or theme, you might want to opt for something big or small, bright or subdued.

There are also multiple ways of displaying floral centerpieces. The most common way, of course, is a traditional vase. You can add extra interest to your centerpieces with a colored glass vase, which will nicely set off the flowers you have chosen.



A tall vase can be a dramatic choice, and can allow your guests to easily see each other across the table. You can also opt for a bowl style presentation, where the flowers are kept lower. This can be a great choice if you want to include foliage.


Whatever presentation you choose, great centerpieces begin with a great florist. If you’re looking for the perfect Milwaukee florist for your wedding, get in touch with us today!


Flowers for the Groom

Chances are good that you’ve thought about what flowers you want in your bouquet, but haven’t given much thought to what flowers your groom is going to wear. While it might not require the same amount of thought, there are plenty of options available.


  • A classic single rose. This might be the most traditional bloom for the groom — and the other male members of the wedding party — to wear. It’s elegant, but still relatively understated. It can also come in a variety of colors to match your scheme.
  • Dazzling orchids. For something a bit more exotic, consider an orchid or two. They have a bit more to them than most single bloom styles, so are great for a tuxedo with tails, or a style with a cravat that will overwhelm a smaller style.

  • A combination of flowers and greenery. This can be done in almost any size, and can give a great effect. The look is almost of a small bouquet, which can add some extra interest to the style.

Succulents Make Stunning Wedding Flowers

Looking for something a bit different than the usual roses and baby’s breath? Why not consider succulents for your wedding flowers?

Succulents are a great addition to wedding bouquets and centerpieces. They can also make great favors for your guests to take home and enjoy for years to come. They are also one of the most eco-friendly choices for your wedding flowers, as they can be replanted after your wedding.

Succulent Wedding Flower Ideas

You can also work succulents into bouquets with other flowers. The rich leafy look of the succulents is beautiful alongside the deep reds, purples, or whites of more traditional wedding blooms.

Succulents can make great wedding flowers because they also come in so many different varieties. They range from a wide variety of greens to whites, purples, and pinks. They are also available year round, which means you don’t have to worry about seasonal availability like you do with so many types of flowers.

Spring Bouquet Ideas

Spring is a great time of year for flowers. Everything goes into bloom and there are plenty of gorgeous, fragrant flowers available. Choosing your wedding flowers is a big part of setting your decor, and different wedding styles will call for different types of flowers.

Spring Wedding Flowers

A formal wedding needs a more formal floral style. Roses are perfect for traditional weddings, and can be used alone or along with other blooms. Another choice is to use bulbs such as tulips and daffodils, both of which are just coming into bloom now.

For a rustic wedding, wildflowers, feverfew, and peonies can be combined with roses for a great effect. They can be tied in a loose bouquet, and are also perfect for placing around your venue.

Another wedding favorite is the hydrangea. These bright, big, and beautiful flowers come in a few different varieties, and can range from white to a deep blue. This makes them a great choice with a romantic touch.

Whatever style wedding you’re planning, there’s a perfect bouquet for you. Come by our shop or give us a call to discuss what marvelous blooms we have for you.
