There is a particular type of flower ideal for every occasion whether it is a wedding, an anniversary, a hospital visit, a birthday or a funeral. Below we have listed the perfect flower for each occasion.


Bride's bouquet

It is good to colour coordinate your flowers to your wedding theme or dress, and because a wedding is one of the most important days of your life, having the right bouquet is vital. If you’re wearing a white wedding dress then a bouquet of white roses, freesia, spray roses and hydrangea are perfect.

For those of you going for red, red roses with carnations and hypericum berries are ideal.

If your colour theme is pastels then why not opt for peach and pink roses with pink ranunculus bulbs?

Funeral’s can be a truly difficult time, but you can chose your flowers depending on the personality of the loved one that has passed. For the emotional and outgoing type of person, red roses would be ideal, whereas for more of a reserved person, a posy arrangement would be good, including white roses, carnations and fragrant freesias.
