Dahlia
With their large blooms and rich, beautiful texture, Dahlias will look very effective in wedding bouquets. Since these flowers are also very big and decorative, you can also use them to adorn your wedding venue.

Poppy
With their big, vibrant petals and flexible stems, poppies are great for colourful table decorations but you can also use them to make a flamboyant wedding bouquet. Since they are very short lived, it is best to keep them in water. 

Anemone
If you are looking for colourful spring flowers for your wedding, anemones are the best choice. They are among the most popular wedding flowers, but since they are fairly small, it is best to use them in smaller arrangements and bouquets. 

Zinnia 
With rich texture and fun bright colours such as orange, red, yellow and fuchsia, as well as pretty ombre shades, Zinnias look very cheerful. They are best in Summer, Autumn and Spring, so they are perfect for weddings.
