Unless you’re a real green fingers, you might find choosing your wedding day blooms a bit overwhelming.

A good place to start is by thinking about what flowers you really like. You might have a couple of old favourites, or perhaps you have flowers that have a special meaning to you, or if you’re a real flower novice (like we were!) start by looking at images of flowers and make a list of a few florals that catch your eye.


It is worthwhile paying a visit to some of your local florists for ideas and to see flowers in the flesh too. If you’re getting married abroad, find out from your wedding planner or florist what kind of flowers you can have and if there are any that you can’t have, as some flowers might not be available where and when you plan to get married.


To help you get started and to bring you a little floral inspiration, we asked some of you lovely You Mean The World To Me readers what your favourite flowers are and why and we’ll be bringing you the selections over the coming weeks. First up, we have two very different classics to show you today…


Cream roses

“I love the timeless, classic and sophisticated cream rose. As a flower they are beautiful and a little understated. Combined with pearls they take me back to the amazing glamour of the 50s. A really simple choice for a wedding but sometimes simple and understated wins every time…..”

– Kate, Manchester

We hope these beautiful blooms have brightened your day!

We love the idea of having a bright pop of Daffodil yellow within a wedding; we can totally imagine them adding a homely, backyard wedding feel to a country w-day. Thanks for the sunny idea Cat!

And who needs to say anything about classic roses? Kate was right, they are so simple yet sophisticated and add a classic touch of grown-up glamour to any wedding.
