Is the big wedding day coming up soon? What will you be decorating with? One of the best decorations for a wedding (and many other exciting events!) would have to be orchids. These flowers will offer a wonderful touch to any wedding. But what kind should you get?
Luckily with orchids, there are so many different kinds, that it won’t be hard for you to find one that you fancy. With such a large variety, it’s very easy to pick out one that will match the theme of your wedding. There is the Dendrobium for one, which is a species that can appear white, purple or anything between. Don’t forget about the corsage orchid which can come not only in an array of colors, but it can also sport awesome looking stripes. The most used orchid is probably the species called the cymbidum. These are also very beautiful, to say the least. They are popular because of that beauty, and they bloom in numerous colors and shades, anything from green to pink. People have also taken a liking to this kind of orchid because it is a hardy survivor; during scorching summer days, they will still look fresh, even when being handled by several people.
Just like any other type of decoration, you can be very creative with orchids; they can be hung up, placed on tables, or made into bouquets. There are, however, a few things that you might want to keep in mind, and one of them is to always care for, and maintain your orchids so that they are healthy and alive during the wedding. The best orchids used for decorations for weddings, or any type of event for that matter, are fresh ones. How can you keep them so fresh for the big day? Don’t keep them in an area too hot, or too cold. Actually, the best temperature would be that of your refrigerator. You can always get a spray bottle and dowse them with a bit of mist with water, that again, is not too cold or too hot. Prune them before hand, and use them only when during the right time; don’t take them out several days before the wedding, or you’re going to be looking at some sore flowers.
Remember, for your wedding, you want only the best decorations, and orchids are definitely one of the best. They are easy to care for, and will play a place on the big day by catching the eyes of others. Orchids are alive during the whole year, and you can easily find the best type for your own wedding during any season. They are also great to mix together, and with other flowers and plant-life as well. Not only are they great looking, but they also let out wonderful aromas to fill the room.
I’ll say it one last time: if you’re thinking about what to use for decorations at your wedding, you should definitely consider orchids.
