Gorgeous flowers make a wedding. They create a mood and add luxurious drama to your décor. Floral expert Tellie Hunt from Toronto’s Coriander Girl shares her nine favourite tropical blooms and ideas on how to incorporate them into your celebration.

Bird of Paradise 

This trailing flower is great to use in archways or tall centrepieces for a little dramatic flair, or to add movement and texture to arrangements.

Heliconia

These interesting plants have a textured, architectural shape, which is perfect for adding a modern touch to your destination wedding décor. Added bonus, they really do look like colourful tropical birds!

Blushing Bride

Blushing bride is one of the most used tropical plants for destination weddings. It’s soft and romantic, but it’s also great for adding an edgy, textured touch to any arrangement.

Calla Lilies

These classic and dramatic white flowers will add instant elegance to your wedding. The best way to style these blooms is simply, a monofloral bouquet of calla lilies tied with a trail of white ribbon looks modern and beautiful.

Ginger

This flower is perfect for adding a bright pop of colour to your palette. Use it in bud vases, centrepieces or even boutonnieres as a fun accent bloom.

Anthurium

This interesting and iconic flower has a unique texture and comes in a variety of great colours, from red to purple, pink and a gorgeous blue. A beautiful choice for bouquets and even floral ceremony décor.

Orchids

Orchids are better used as a whole stem instead of individual blooms in your bouquet or centrepieces to create flow and movement. That way, the flower will create a really relaxed, natural look for your ceremony and reception space.

Protea

This is a unique plant, and its vines can help make arrangements look more garden-inspired and natural, while the intricate texture of its blooms adds depth and artistry.

Passionflower

This is a unique plant, and its vines can help make arrangements look more garden-inspired and natural, while the intricate texture of its blooms adds depth and artistry.
