Wholesale Wedding Flowers
If you're looking for wholesale wedding flowers, I guess there's a good chance that you're planning on making your own wedding flowers. Here are a few tips if this is the case.
Pick a flower that is going to look stunning in an arrangement just by itself. Whereas a flower shop is able to use several different types of flower in each arrangement, choosing just one flower will make your ordering, delivery and arranging a lot simpler. Calla lilies are a perfect example of a flower that will work like this. Roses also make a good choice.
Wholesale Calla Lilies
Calla lilies are available in a wide variety of colors from traditional white, pink, yellow, orange and dark purple/black. A specialist suppler of wholesale wedding calla lilies is Pacific Callas. Make sure you check out the gallery on their site of wedding flower photos that previous brides have created - quite amazing.
Calla lilies are very versatile and can be made into sheath bouquets or posy style bouquets. These are suitable for novices to try. They can also be made into cascade bouquets but this does require more in the way of floristry skills. A little bit of imagination can also create stunning wedding centerpieces with callas.
Another reason that callas are great as a wedding flower for beginners is that they require very little in the way of conditioning. This is the often-neglected art of preparing your flowers. This can involve stripping lower leaves on the stem, removing thorns and removing the outer petals on the flower. This is not difficult, but it all takes time...something that is likely to be in short supply a couple of days before your wedding. With a calla lily, the only conditioning you need is to cut the stems diagonally and place in fresh water.
If you want to take things a step further, you can create a whole calla lily themed wedding. There are a lot of accessories that will allow you to do this, such as favors and invitations.
The other great choice for wholesale wedding flowers is roses. These are classic flowers that will grace any event. Again, they are available in a huge range of colors so whatever your theme, you'll be able to find something suitable.
Correctly conditioning your roses can have a big effect on how your roses look on the day. If your roses arrive looking quite tight budded and a bit smaller than you had hoped for, don't worry. By leaving them in water for a day or two, the flower heads will often swell up and give beautiful blooms.
Wholesale wedding flowers can save you money and be a lot of fun. If you have a creative streak in you, why not give it a go?
