When it comes to using orchids in wedding floral decor, brides-to-be have much to be excited about. While the Phalaenopsis is the most popular for weddings, there are other types of orchids available such as dendrobrium, cymbidium, and cattleya. Each is uniquely beautiful from the next and can be used in just about every floral decor element. From bouquets to ceremonial structures to centerpieces, here are inspiring ideas for using orchid wedding flowers.

Phalaenopsis Orchid

The most recognized of all the orchids is the Phalaenopsis. Our brides love this bloom not only for its exquisite beauty, but also for its versatility. Phalaenopsis orchids can be used in various wedding styles ranging from exotic and opulent to classic to modern. Tall centerpieces featuring lush cream and lavender roses and hydrangea complemented by descending white Phalaensopsis orchids evoke an ambiance of timeless elegance. A bridal bouquet featuring the flower in bold violet with burgundy and red roses captures the eye with dramatic flair. Give the traditional white wedding cake a makeover with a flourish of cascading natural blooms.

We love when a bride puts a unique spin on wedding traditions. Symbolizing the home of the soon-to-be newlyweds, the chuppah is one of the most important aspects of the Jewish wedding ceremony. It also lets the bride be creative with décor, and express their personality and style. This week, we talked with our featured bride Madalyn about her breathtaking Lucite and suspended floral chuppah.
