Wedding flowers – create a fairy-tale for your couple!

Wedding is a special event highly anticipated with awe and wonder by all sweethearts. Everyone wants this day to be ideal and remembered as the happiest and brightest day of their life. This can be achieved with flower decor of your wedding: flowers will certainly make your ceremony very tender and exquisite.

Staying on the coast of the Caribbean Sea in sunlight you may feel that it is all you need to feel happy on this special day, however, decorating your wedding with flowers will make the ceremony more solemn and exquisite. Wedding flowers give new hints even to classical images of the newlyweds, always when bright flower elements are present in a wedding arch, a bride’s bouquet, and flower compositions along the aisle to the altar.

Planning a wedding in the Dominican Republic, remember that floristry requires special attention. You can choose flower décor for your wedding when looking at the pictures of flower compositions that were used at your friends’ or relatives’ wedding ceremonies. Thus, you will be able to decide what wedding flowers and what bride’s bouquet you want to see in your wedding photos. However, mind that fresh flowers are not the best variant for a wedding beside the sea. Due to a high humidity level and the very hot sun, fresh flowers decorating your wedding arch will fade very fast and won’t look like at the moment when you chose them. That is why, if you want to have really bright pictures, we recommend decorating the arch with a mix of artificial flowers with ribbons of similar tones.

Flower bouquet for a wedding. What flowers to choose?

The beauty and uniqueness of every bride can be highlighted with a flower bouquet. It allows expressing the bride’s character, and even a regular dress will look special with a flower bouquet. You can choose both traditional and exotic variants of flowers that can be found only on the islands. To point out your uniqueness even more, use accessories (ribbons, jewelry and even marine-themed seashells).

The Dominican Republic fascinates tourists with its bright tropical landscapes created by a variety of flowers growing here. Among them there is guzmania (tufted airplant) – a plant with a bright bud consisting of orange, yellow, scarlet, coral and claret red bracts in the center and green leaves around it. Vriesea is also a green-leaf plant with a bright red rosette in the center. Aechmea is a flower growing on the trees and resembling a bright bird or a splash of intensive colors.

Meantime, the flower the Dominicans are most proud of is a charming orchid. One of its varieties – tiger orchid – is very interesting. It deserved its name because of an unusual color of its flowers. Singapore orchid (vanda) also boasts exquisite, showy, intensely bright colors.
It is worth paying special attention to well-known but at the same time unfamiliar to us plants. For example, calla seems to be known by everyone, however, it is still rarely used for wedding celebrations, although it perfectly highlights elegance of the bride. Vanilla fragrance is common and popular since long ago, but many people do not even guess that it comes from the seeds if the vanilla orchid. It is used not only in fragrances and cooking, but also widely employed in décor: its tender flowers represent the perfection of pastel tones: yellow, snow-white and light-green. Besides, many people have heard of the passion fruit as edible fruit, but only few have seen the blossom of this plant: its flowers resemble a small explosion of several colors spread all around – each flower mesmerizes you so that you want to observe it again and again.

No matter which wedding you prefer: classical traditional or unusual exotic – wedding flowers will serve as an exotic accent that will embody and express the authentic character of your couple.

Bridal bouquet – the key to the unique image

Wedding is the most anticipated and bright event in a couple’s life. It slips away in one day, but it requires preparation, which may last for a year!

Just 20 years ago, all the weddings were similar to one another, dresses for brides were not very diverse, and nobody even thought about accessories. The situation is quite different when preparing modern weddings. The number of wedding dresses and their styles is so huge that any – even the most demanding bride can find the proper one for her.

White bridal bouquet

This is perhaps the most popular option, because the white bouquet symbolizes the beauty and the purity of the bride as well as the purity of the relationship of the couple entering into marriage. Moreover, white is the color that is ideal for almost any wedding dress. The traditional option – roses of different sizes, which can be in perfect harmony with these flowers in the bride’s hair. Indeed, a royal version is the lily, which will not leave anyone indifferent. Callas will be perfect for those who have a sophisticated taste. They perfectly match the dress of a slender silhouette or a light and even careless bridal image. If you are preparing a wedding in the spring or in a rustic or boho style, lilies of the valley would be an excellent option. They look light and airy, and by adding them with ribbon or string due to your wedding style, you will get a unique bouquet that best complements you.

Red bridal bouquet

Red is not just the color of love and passion. Not every bride dares to choose it for her image. To create a red bouquet, roses are most often chosen, they are truly royal flowers. You can also use gerberas. Despite its fairly simple appearance, they look bright in the photos. Tulips (especially closed buds) are perfect for a young bride. Of course, we cannot ignore the peonies, which look rich and symbolize good luck. Callas look unusual and exotic, and even red callas will not leave indifferent any of the guests!

However, mono-bouquets, which are made of one type of flowers and one color, do not suit everyone, so even a red bouquet can be diluted with small white flowers, which will become the backdrop for the primary colors, and the contrast will make the red bouquet even brighter.

Blue bridal bouquet


Blue, on the one hand, is the color of mysteries and secrets, and on the other hand, it is the color of devotion, loyalty and faithful love. To create a bouquet in blue colors, you can use roses – it looks elegant, and if you add more simple and small pastel-coloured flowers or even add berries and twigs, it will be unusual for brides with fantasy.

The undoubted front-runner when choosing flowers in blue is hydrangea. Its advantages are longevity, the absence of a strong smell, the ability to buy a plant from June to October, as well as the refinement of the bouquet, which after all will suit better young brides. Orchids are one of the symbols of the Dominican Republic, which means that a rare holiday goes without them. Orchids are a symbol of happiness and family wealth. A bride who chooses these flowers for her bouquet pretends to be unique and unusual.

Pink bridal bouquet


This is a classic color to create an image of a gentle and dreamy bride. Varying flowers in a bouquet, you can make it naively romantic or regal and rich. In this case, the most popular choice are roses, thanks to which you can create an elegant and at the same time majestic bridal bouquet. An excellent alternative to roses are peonies. A bouquet of peonies looks massive and fine, and if you combine flowers of different shades of color and sizes in the composition, you will get a stylish option for a modern bride.

Therefore, the bridal bouquet only seems to be a simple accessory, but in fact, its choosing requires a thoughtful approach from the bride, because the bouquet, besides the bride and groom, will take centre stage in your wedding photos.
