An orchid symbolizes beauty and elegance, making it a sophisticated option when choosing your wedding flowers. There are more than 20,000 varieties of orchids, but there are three types most traditionally utilized in wedding bouquets: phalaenopsis orchids, dendrobium orchids and cymbidium orchids. This gorgeous flower comes in a wide spectrum of colors and shapes, and can be incorporated into any wedding palette. When planning a wedding in the Hollywood or Westin area, consider orchid bouquets.
Phalaenopsis orchids are also known as “moth orchids” because their soft petals have the look of a butterfly or moth’s wingspan. They are very common with florists because they can be propagated easily – they also do well as potted plants, so can also be utilized as beautiful centerpieces that can be given away to some of your guests at the end of the evening. Dendrobrium orchids are native to the Far East and the South Pacific and come in a spectacular range of colors, making them a wonderful choice to match your dresses or linens. And while most orchids are native to hot climates like southwest Florida, the cymbidium orchid is more accustomed to cooler temperatures. Cascading orchid bouquets are popular with brides for the waterfall of stunning beauty, but orchids can also be used in classic or contemporary centerpieces, boutonnieres, floral cake garnish and venue decoration.
