ORIGINAL AND UNIQUE WEDDING FLOWERS
Every wedding is unique in it’s own way. Flowers are a very important attribute, which really sets the atmosphere of the ceremony. Hence, the variance in your flower assortment will give the wedding an even more unique style. Read about Roselily, Protea and our other floral wedding suggestions!
In this article, we tried to collect some wonderful cut flowers, which would not pop up in your head immediately, but they are definitely worth paying attention to.
A LOVELY COMBINATION OF A ROSE AND A LILY: ROSELILIY
Lilies are unique and stunning flowers, but, unfortunately, not everybody likes flowers, which have a strong fragrance. We would therefore love to re-introduce Roselilies. These creations are truly beautiful.
Roselily is the breeder of Roselilies and Moerman is their grower. They aim to provide Roselilies the whole year, however, they are at their best in June. No wonder the Lily is the flower of the month June! The wedding Lily season has officially started!
WHY CHOOSE A ROSELILY FOR YOUR EVENT OR WEDDING?
- They resemble the original Oriental Lilies, but Roselilies have at least a double amount of petals!
- What also makes them so special, is their light and soft fragrance. Unlike the normal Oriental Lilies, which have a strong perfume.
- Not any less important – they are actually pollen free, which means that the bridal outfit will never be ruined by flowers.
BEST WEDDING PICKS
1# WEDDING WHITE
Which varieties are the best for wedding, you may ask? This highly depends on your preferences. If you would like to go for the traditional white wedding, then Roselily Monica is available the whole summer. Roseliy Leona is usually available during winter.

2# PRETTY PINK
For this trendy and colourful summer, picking bright pink flowers would be very suitable for an alternative and bright wedding. In this case, Roselilies Elena or Viola are very beautiful picks. If you opt for a lighter pink, an absolutely gorgeous variety Anoushka will be available from mid-June.
*** Beware that Anoushka is the variety that is not 100% pollen-free, that’s why it is also not officially called a Roselily, even though it has got the looks of one.

3# COLOUR CLASH: WHITE & PINK
This is a very beautiful colour mix. It’s as if the colours were melting together, like strawberry sauce and vanilla ice cream. Some flowers have more white, and some less. This makes them look stunning, especially in combination with the amount of petals Roselilies have. Isabela is definitely the top-seller in this group. Thalita is also a very beautiful variety – it looks like it has tiny freckles. The beautiful Samantha is also available already and will last on the market till Christmas – She highly resembles a water Lily.

MAKE YOUR OWN FLORAL COMBINATION WITH ROSELILIES
All of the colours are beautiful. But why not combine them together? Using the combinations of pink and white flowers in a surrounding full of greenery will add up to an authentic setting. The colour combinations and natural elements will create a botanic/garden vibe. Moreover, hanging some vases with Lilies will make it seem as if they were casually floating in the air – this can be also felt with their delightful fragrance. It would be especially nice holding the event in a very spacious venue – even better, if it would have a nice view – it would visually extend the location and create a natural vibe.

* BEWARE: unlike Oriental Lilies, Roselilies are harvested at a more open stage. This gives a higher guarantee that the flower will open. This does not affect the vase life of the flower in any way. In fact, Roselilies tend to have a longer vase life than Oriental Lilies.
Tip: purchase your Lilies in advance to make sure they will fully open up by the time of the event.
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue
Flowers are stunning – that’s out of question. But what helps to put the composition together better than greenery? It helps creating the exact vibe you want to arrange, it makes the setting not boring. We have some modern suggestions, which will bring your flower arrangements to a whole different level.
# ASPARAGUS PLUMOSUS, AGAPANTHUS ATLANTIC OCEAN, UMBRELLA
Our first gentle greenery creates an easy, light vibe. Slightly forest-y. The Asparagus can be arranged in various ways. As an addition to a bouquet or create beautiful green photo walls with Asparagus, let it flow down to the bottom on to the ground for a mindblowing effect.
The beautiful Agapanthus comes in many different varieties and colours. Add that something blue to your wedding with these cute little star shaped flowers.
The Umbrella, on contrary, is giving a slightly tropical vibe, as if you were in the middle of a rainforest. It is also a very structured flower with strong lines, which creates an airy yet modern vibe. If you are a fan of the Urban Jungle style, this is perfect for you!

CREATE A POWERFUL STATEMENT WITH PROTEA CYNAROIDES ARCTIC ICE
A Protea on its own is a very original flower. However, Protea Cynaroides Arctic Ice is truly unique in every single way: a powerfull shape, a soft velvet touch. When she opens her heart to you, you will definetly get startstruck by this beauty. In combination with the greenery mentioned above (and, in fact, even more – it’s up to your imagination), it will make an absolutely stunning wedding bouquet. This will be simply beyond the ordinary!
