Top Wedding Flowers 

Many types of flowers are popular for weddings. Some brides know the exact flowers they want for their special day, others need a little help deciding. A professional florist, like Kady Lawrence from The Bridal Bouquet, work with brides to make their dreams come true.  
In the opening scene of The Bridal BouquetKady created exactly what the bride requested for her ceremony; all white flowers to go with her white gown complemented by a red sash. The flower arrangements included gardenias, snow-white dahlias and white larkspur. 
In order for Kady to know which flowers will suit her bride, along with colors, blooms and theme, she chooses from the top choices of wedding flowers. Here are a few Kady loves.

Incorporating one type of flowers or a mixture of many will give the bride choices for her wedding vision. Kady knows that the more options she can offer, the more a bride will get exactly what she’s requested to make a statement on her special day.
