Choosing a specific type of flower to plan your wedding around is a great idea. No doubt about it, there is an abundance of wedding ideas for flowers that suit a wide range of themes and wedding styles - from truly romantic (such as beautiful long-stemmed red roses) to fun and carefree (think Gerbera daisies) - and everything in between.
Once you choose your flower, you can begin planning the color coordination using your blossom of choice. From there, you can decide on related decorations, cake design, bridal attire, centerpieces, and favors that compliment the flower.
Of course, a flower wedding theme presents its own difficulties. With the thousands of varieties available, which flower do you pick?
From vibrant colors, to variegated varieties; from fragrant blossoms to interesting shapes; from the rarest flowers to the most common choices; selecting the one that fits your personal preferences and personalities can get tricky.
While it's true that you could potentially use any type of flower for your theme preference, you will soon become aware that some flowers are more reminiscent of weddings than others. These floral beauties will be your main focal point.
Cost is another factor to consider. While a bouquet of lily-of-the-valley can create a look of delicate sophistication, they are also a very expensive flower - and you need a lot of them to make a decent wedding bouquet. Hydrangeas, on the other hand, are moderately priced with full, bushy heads in a variety of vibrant colors.
Here are some of the more popular wedding ideas for flowers:

Also, many couples choose a specific color to base their wedding around, such as orange, purple, blue, yellow or red, and find flowers to match the color scheme.
Seasonal floral choices are also an option. If your wedding is being held in the fall, choose flowers that match that time of year and contain autumn shades such as deep yellows, oranges, burnt reds and browns. Spring weddings are more suited to pastel colored flowers, while summer and winter tend toward vibrant hues.
As you can see, there are many wedding ideas for flowers that you can pick from. Just remember to consider the cost of the blooms that you wish to use (exotic flowers are obviously more expensive than localy grown), the season that they are available (in-season is less expensive), and whether the flower fits into the style of wedding that you are thinking of having (formal, casual, romantic, fun, etc.)
