Favorite Flowers

Hello everyone who is reading this! If you are new here, my name is Kathryn and I am a wedding florist/ gardener in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa area!

I wanted to put together a blog post highlighting different types of flowers that I personally like to use in weddings based on the season. Feel free to check out these blog posts to get a more in-depth ideas of seasonality:

– but for now, let’s roll!

I liked to look at flowers via 3 categories: focal, filler and flutter.

Focal means flowers that will take up space. They normally are larger in size, price, and show. Fillers are the types of flowers that fill an arrangement. This could include greenery but they are mostly flowers that help transition colors and shapes/ sizes. Flutter flowers are my favorite. They “flutter” around the arrangement. So normally they stick out a bit and are the ones that (in my opinion) best reflect a garden. Below are some of my favorites in each category!

It’s about more than hiring someone to hold a create a bouquet and a few centerpieces. Wedding floral design is about carefully crafting and capturing the beauty of you and your significant other in a way that beautifully tells the story of your love.
