The lovely lisianthus is a beautiful bloom for all occasions, but with its layered petals and glossy shine, it makes for a wonderful wedding flower.
Roses have long been a popular flower for romance, but now the lisianthus is becoming a firm favourite with brides.
Here are just a few reasons why the lisianthus could add the finishing touch to your big day…
A perfect bouquet
Thanks to its delicate petals, the lisianthus looks feminine and romantic whether used alone, for a more structured contemporary-looking bouquet, or mixed with other blooms for a natural ‘hand-picked’ look that’s perfect for a vintage wedding.
Winter wedding wonder
Unlike the peony, a popular favourite for spring and summer weddings, the lisianthus is available all year round. So it’s perfect for adding a soft, delicate touch to a winter bouquet.
The colour of love
An all-white bouquet looks elegant, simple and modern. But if you would prefer to add a splash of colour to proceedings, or find something to tie in with your bridesmaid dresses, the lisianthus is also available in a wide variety of colours. White, red, blue, yellow, pink, purple, orange – and even multicoloured varieties – there is a hue to suit you whatever your big-day requirements.
Create a romantic centrepiece
Spherical bouquets of short-stemmed lisianthus, hand-tied with ribbon, make beautiful table centrepieces when placed in round glass vases.
The lisianthus also makes a beautiful buttonhole bloom. For winter weddings, evoke the feeling of a crisp, frosty morning in the country by tying a lisianthus with eucaplyptus leaves and berries.
