Fabulous Wedding Florals & How to Choose Them

The one element of any wedding that establishes the overall aesthetic are wedding florals. Think about it: they’re in every photo, on every reception table, and carried by every member of the wedding party. Whether it's one-of-a-kind arrangements or specific color palettes that match your overall theme, wedding florals bring life and a sense of style to any wedding.

Consider your wedding venue and the time of year

The location of your wedding ceremony and reception has a big impact on decor and wedding florals. To give you some ideas, here are a few suggestions for wedding florals that pair perfectly with Sandals wedding venues:

Garden Gazebo: Let the surrounding foliage speak for itself! Play up palm leaves and bright colors to complement the ones all around you.

Intimate Resort Wedding Chapel: A traditional chapel ceremony calls for classic florals like roses, hydrangeas, and lilies.

Sky Terrace: Saying “I do” at sunset? Opt for soft pinks, oranges, and reds that will mirror the stunning backdrop.

Over-the-Water Serenity Wedding Chapel: With 360-degree views of the Caribbean Sea, white and neutral florals are subtle additions that won’t take away from the stunning turquoise waters.

The seasonality of your wedding should also be taken into consideration when choosing your wedding florals. For summer weddings, stick to warm, inviting tones and florals that won’t wilt in the heat. Arrangements with proteas, hibiscus, and sunflowers are ideal for a summer aesthetic. On the other hand, winter weddings pair best with carnations, Gerbera daisies, and roses, which are known to thrive in the winter.

Keep up with the trends

Following the hottest trends for wedding florals can jog your sense of creativity and save you time planning. Some of our favorite trends of the 2024 wedding season include:
