The Best Flowers for Your Wedding

There is so much to say about weddings. Each one has such a specific atmosphere. There are older people crying tears of joy, dimmed lighting to set the mood, drinks and food, and of course love in the air. A lot goes into a wedding. Stress can come from booking a venue, how many people to invite, you to put at which table at the reception, and, of course, what to wear. Something that should be fun at any wedding, should be picking out the flowers. At some point in all your planning, a color scheme is decided. Once you know your colors, choosing your flowers becomes simpler. Anne’s Florals & Gifts is a florist in New Hampshire to help make your wedding as beautiful as it is happy.

Bridal Bouquets

This is an important part of any wedding day. These are the flowers that will be seen closest to the bride’s dress, as well as the bridesmaids’ gowns. The flowers in the bouquet should match the color scheme, or accent it. For a stunning bouquet, you can go with a lighter color with darker flowers in the shade of your gown to contrast and pop. Roses, tulips, and peonies all come in a wide variety of colors to fit any scheme.

Aisle Runners

Aisle runners are the flowers, plants, or pieces that line the aisle the wedding party walks down. The kind of flower isn’t as important as the style of the runner. Some prefer larger runners. If the venue has a high ceiling, this could be a smart way to go. For smaller runners, try using a single kind of flower from your bridal bouquet or a combination. Matching isn’t as important as coordination. Runners shouldn’t be too extravagant as to distract from the wedding party.

Altar Flowers

Again, it’s all about coordination. The altar should try to incorporate the color scheme of the wedding as well as flowers from the bouquet. Roses and hydrangeas are a popular option because they can be bright and vibrant or subtle and elegant. The flowers on the altar should highlight the material of the altar itself, but not distract from the bride and groom standing beneath it.

Table Decorations

Table decorations can be the easiest decision to make. When flowers are used for table decorations, you can be sure somebody at the table will snag it for a keepsake by the end of the night. You can never go wrong with a simpler version of the bridal bouquet, or the bridesmaids’ bouquet.


With so much going into a wedding, planning can get hectic and stressful. Of course, these are just general ideas for flowers. For the best advice at an affordable price, contact Anne’s Florals & Gifts for a consultation. Make your wedding beautiful and stress-free!
