Contrary to popular belief, weddings aren’t all about the bride! Although, of course, the bride is essential, there are many important women working behind the scenes to make the happy couple’s day as special as possible.
From bridesmaids and flower girls to the maid or matron of honour, each has an integral role to play. And, what better way to show your appreciation for all their love and support than with a beautiful bouquet?
Flowers offer the perfect way to accessorise your wedding, and here at Flowers Buy Delivery, we offer a wide range of wedding flowers in Edinburgh and further afield.
The Role of Wedding Flowers
Many couples choose to incorporate fresh, seasonal blooms into their wedding accessories and venue décor as flowers offer the perfect blend of personality, attractive colour and gorgeous scent while still keeping in with age-old wedding traditions.
Similarly, this is why a lot of couples choose flowers for their décor. From table centrepieces to beautiful decorations around the venue, flowers are one wedding theme that is always in fashion!
Bouquets, Buttonholes and More…
However, there are many more uses for these versatile blooms when it comes to your big day. It’s not just the bride who carries a bouquet; traditionally, the bridesmaids and maid or matron of honour will also carry their own bouquet, usually in a colour or style which complements the bride’s bouquet. Some brides also request that the members of their bridal party wear matching or complementary flower corsages.
Flower girls will also need flowers – the clue is in the name! Some couples choose to have their flower girl walking ahead of the bride scattering petals down the aisle, whereas others simply have a gorgeous bouquet to carry. As flower girls are often younger girls, a pretty flower crown made from fresh blooms adds the perfect touch to finish off their wedding outfit.
Although buttonhole flowers are traditionally reserved for the groom and his groomsmen, there is no reason why you can’t switch things up a bit by offering buttonhole flowers to the women in attendance. After all, not every woman wants to wear a dress to a wedding, so a striking flower in a jacket’s buttonhole can provide a great multi-purpose accessory.
Showcasing Personality with Flowers
Of course, these are only a few uses for flowers – each wedding is a special occasion entirely bespoke to the happy couple, so it is important to remember that the beauty of flowers is in their versatility.
