Roses will always be the number one red flower to use in wedding bouquets and arrangements. They are timeless, beautiful, and hold up well throughout the day. They are also available year-round.
Orchids are elegant and perfect for red wedding flowers. They look wonderful with just a few greens or on their own with cascading ribbons. They are delicate, so be cautious with them.
Anemone, chrysanthemums and gerbera daisies are all popular red flowers that are in season during autumn. Each of these makes a wonderful base for a bouquet, and they look wonderful with other flowers too. Consider adding some baby’s breath for a pop of white.
Red flowers that are popular for winter weddings include amaryllis, orchids and poinsettias. Each of these delicate flowers looks gorgeous as a focal point in a bouquet.
The addition of some greens brings the bouquets to life. If it is a Christmas wedding, some small pinecones and holly berries are nice additions.
Spring has so many beautiful red flowers to choose from. Begonias, freesia, tulips, hibiscus, and hyacinths are some of the more popular choices. For a more delicate look, poppies and calla lilies are perfect.
Summer weddings also have many wonderful seasonal choices. Dahlias, gaillardia and coneflowers are excellent base flowers. They each have a burst of color and beautiful round shapes.
Peonies are very full for voluminous bouquets. Verbena makes an excellent addition with its dainty, clustered blooms.
For destination weddings that are in a tropical region, anthurium, hibiscus and scarlet bee balm are perfect for adding a bit of island feel to the red flower bouquets and table arrangements. Add some palm leaves to show-off the red flowers.
This bold color is perfect to tell the world you are in love, so express it with red wedding flowers when you celebrate.
