We really are a flower-loving bunch over here at PDW! Continuing with our delicious Yellow Issue we have the exquisite floral extraordinaire Cassandra Kempster-Roberts on the blog today with some yellow flower wisdom! From pale yellow to a punchy pop, here is “Fabulous Yellow Florals To Consider For Your Wedding Day”…
Yellow: magnificent, sometimes subtle, sometimes bold. Like other colours, there’s a range of tints, tones and shades that can spring to mind when someone thinks “yellow”. From the palest lemon sorbet kind to the rich, almost golden yellow-orange. Whether you’re after strong, punchy colours or soft pastels, there are plenty of flowers that grow with yellows in their colour range.
Ways To Use Yellow Florals
It comes down to personal preference as to how you want to include yellow flowers. You could incorporate them in a restrained way, with a light smattering through flowers in other colours. Perhaps you want a yellow monochromatic colour scheme, utilising different yellows for interest and depth. You may want it to be the predominant flower colour, but with other hues in your palette. You could give yellow equal billing with a handful of other colours. The options go on.
Yellow flowers also don’t have to be the preserve of one look. I envisage them working for wildly differing moods. Whether you’re channelling sun-drenched countryside vibes, a cottage garden, beautiful Aussie bush, English meadow, retro and kitschy, minimalism, blousy and romantic, tropical, or something else entirely, the right florist for you can plan options to bring your overarching style to life.
This isn’t an exhaustive list below – yes, there are plenty more. It’s intended as a bit of an inspiration kick-starter, so chat to your florist about what may work in your circumstances.
Try to keep an open mind, perhaps allowing colours and overall feel rather than exact varieties to steer the selection, and make the most of your florist’s expertise. Depending on when and where your wedding is happening, different flowers will be around; not everything is in season at the same time, and not everything is available in all places. Your florist could help you avoid using something classed as a weed in your state/area or point out which florals may be an irritant or poisonous (or help you try to steer clear of those if need be). If things like fragrance or being wholly locally grown are pivotal, these are all topics to speak about with your florist. And yes, I probably am biased about how awesome a job a good florist can do!
