This is an impressive flower that has five trumpet-shaped blooms that opens on top of an extra long stalk. This variety may be a good choice for spring, but may also be considered for a summer wedding also.
For further consideration, we recommend Purple Anemones, which according to Greek mythology, has two legends. One legend is that they sprang up from the blood of Adonis, who was lover of Aphrodite. This name also means, windflower, which is believed to be named after Zephyrus, the god of wind. It is also a relative of the peony and ranunculus.

This variety is particularly enhancing for any season, this variety is none other than Pink Bouvardia. Its perfect for a classic wedding and can used for an exciting bridal bouquet.

Another preferred variety is White Calla Lilies. This is a trumpet-shaped blossom that originated in Africa. It was a symbol of magnificent beauty for the Victorians. They have a feminine charm that makes it very attractive for a bride on her wedding day. It also has a strong, sturdy stem that makes it perfect for additional height in a centerpiece.
If you are looking for a flower that can be used both in winter and spring weddings, we recommend Bi-color White-Red Carnation. This variety is long-lasting and can be a very wise selection for weddings. It has a ruffled-looking head that makes it ideal for fuller bouquets and centerpieces. Remember that the stems are thinner, so centerpieces are highly recommended. This is also an historic variety that was highly chosen by the ancient Greeks to make ceremonial crowns.

Finally, you might consider dark Pink Cornflower. According to lore, if a maiden placed some of this beneath her dress, she could have any bachelor she desired, which is probably how it got its nickname, bachelor button.
