I recently came across a post on Offbeat Bride blog that detailed a Utah couple’s fabulous orchid-themed wedding. Christina and Alex incorporated orchids into all of their bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces and cake! But the really unique part of their big day was that the groom wore a custom-made tux that was just covered with appliqued orchids. The wedding color palette was white and yellow, and the couple pulled it throughout their big day beautifully.
I love the idea of using real, stunning blooms to accent your wedding cake rather than sugar-made faux flowers. Take a look at this beautiful photo I found on Pinterest of a white and blue tiered wedding cake that featured cascading green orchids. Now that is one stylish wedding cake!
We even have orchid wedding invitations that would be simply perfect to carry this theme through! One of my personal favorites is our Watercolor Orchid Invitation in Fuchsia. I just love the combination of the watercolor effect with the beautiful graphic of a pink and white orchid. They just pair so well together and create this romantic, dainty, yet elegant and refined wedding invitation. This invite design is also available in delicate purple color and zesty orange color palettes, which allows you to customize it to suit your wedding color palette.
Another great orchid invite is our Floral Detail Invitation, which uses a soft blue/lavender colored print and features a beautiful orchid-inspired floral design stretching diagonally across the invite card. This design is customizable; however, so you can pick whatever color best suits your wedding color palette. Plus, the envelopes for these invitations feature a colored liner that is the same as the color you select for the print.
