Phalaenopsis Orchids Add Romance to Winter Weddings

January 18, 2011

Orchids are a romantic choice for winter weddings. One of the most popular orchid varieties, Just Add Ice Phalaenopsis Orchids set a romantic mood and are frequently used by brides and wedding planners to create and carry the wedding theme from church through reception.

Beautiful yet sturdy, Just Add Ice Phalaenopsis Orchids are prized for their versatility. These orchids create a stunning focal point when used in bridal bouquets, as boutonnieres and corsages, as table decorations at the reception or to embellish the wedding cake. Available in a breathtaking array of colors from creamy whites to pale greens and hot pinks, Phalaenopsis Orchids can be used in one or more colors, alone or combined with other flowers, to showcase the bride’s color scheme and wedding theme.

Wedding planners offer these ideas for using orchids at winter weddings:

  • Bouquets. White orchids are the traditional choice for the bride’s bouquet and groom’s boutonniere. In traditional weddings, colored orchids chosen to match the bridesmaids’ dresses and emphasize the wedding colors are featured in the bridesmaids’ bouquets and groomsmen’s corsages. New trends include the inclusion of a few orchid colors in the bride’s bouquet and the use of orchids in contrasting rather than complementary colors in bridesmaids’ bouquets.
  • Corsages. Phalaenopsis Orchids make stunning corsages. Single blossoms are large enough to be worn alone to great effect. Creamy white orchid corsages that can be worn with any dress color are often favored to honor mothers and grandmothers of the bride and groom. A new trend made possible by the wide variety of colors in which Phalaenopsis Orchids are available is the design of corsages in colors that complement each woman’s individual dress. Unison is created by the shape of Phalaenopsis Orchids rather than their color.
