Radiant Orchid Wedding Recipe


Here’s what you could make!


  • 10 stems Alstromeria (PeruvianLilies)
  • 1-3 Kale heads (depending on the containers you use)
  • 5 Mini Gerbera Daisies
  • 7 stems Spray Roses
  • 1 bunch Dahlia Style Cremons

NOTE: for a more relaxed, country feel I always suggest either getting one of our Greenery Combo Boxes or using locally harvested greens to make your look regional to your area.


2 CEREMONY ARRANGEMENTS: Use Tall French Market Galvanized Buckets, Milk Containers, or Birch Bark Covered Vases to complete the Rustic feel of these without being overpowering. You could also use found Boxes, Small Crates or other fun things like Watering Cans, Tea Tins….I’ve even used Paint Cans covered in fabric or paper for a custom look. After the Ceremony, you can re-use them on a buffet table that features seasonal cheeses, pies, local beers and hearty fare such as a turkey or beef carving station, baked potato bar and a family style salad.)

  • 1 ¬Ĺ¬†bunches Dahlia Style Cremons
  • Remaining Kale heads (about 3 each)
  • 15-20 stems Spray Roses
  • 20 stems Dianthus


BRIDAL BOUQUET: Wrap with Burlap, Vintage Toile, Grosgrain Ribbon or Twine.

  • 30 stems Spray Roses
  • 15 stems Cream Purple Stock
  • 7-9 stems¬†Alstromeria (PeruvianLilies)
  • 9 or so Gerbera Daisies


3 BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS (Your Bridesmaids could wear Pale Yellow, Lavender or Pink dresses)

  • 15 stems Spray Roses
  • 15 stems Dianthus
  • 7 stems Cream Purple Stock
  • 5 stems Gerbera Daisies


6 BOUTONNIERES  (Groom, 3 Groomsmen, 2 Fathers)

4 MINI BOUQUETS  (2 Mothers, 2 Grandmothers)

  • Snip the heads of the remaining Spray Roses and Spray Stock from their stems the night before or morning of the wedding into the basket,¬†bucket or container for the flower girl to sprinkle. Everyone all together now: AAaaaahhhH!!
