Like in most places throughout the world, weddings in Thailand are the perfect time to lavish people in incredibly beautiful flowers. However, there are a number of different flowers that appear time and time again during these celebrations, and you would be wise to consult with a florist in Thailand who should be able to help you choose the right one for a wedding.
One small tip, when buying flowers always visit a florist. They often deliver absolutely stunning arrangements of flowers, and the things that you purchase from supermarkets leave a lot to be desired. Although of course, you should already realise this and are most likely looking up the closest florist already!
Now that is out the way, let’s start with the flowers that you shouldn’t give. Whilst it is customary to give ‘white flowers’ in many parts of the world for a wedding, this is one of the flowers in Thailand that you really don’t want to give somebody. It is something that has been deeply rooted within the culture as being something that brings bad luck. In short, if you take a white flower to a Thailand wedding then you have made a huge mistake!
To be perfectly honest, there is no real restriction on the type of flowers that you should purchase for a wedding in Thailand as long as you don’t go for the white ones. It really is a ‘choose what matches your personality’ situation, although of course you may also want to pick something that matches the aesthetics of the room that you are going to be in. I am a lover of roses at weddings, they really do help to add a real touch of colour to the room, and they are possibly some of the most beautiful flowers in Thailand.
However, you shouldn’t really be too concerned about what type of flowers to choose. Instead you should be concerned with the sort of arrangement that you are going to have them in. Your florist should be able to help you here. You can have your flowers at a wedding arranged in a number of different ways. Remember, flowers in Thailand are incredibly popular so it is not uncommon to see them on almost everything during a wedding. Consider these options:
- Wedding Bouquets are of course the standard fare at any wedding, remember you also have to choose the bridesmaids bouquet which should match.
- Archways. These are one of the best ways to add a real look of beauty to your wedding. Walking through a flower covered archway is one of the best ways to kick off a happy day.
- Flower stands to decorate the room, as well as a couple of wreaths.
If you are still unsure about what flowers in Thailand to pick up for a wedding then really do not hesitate to get in touch with your local florist in Thailand. They will be more than happy to help you choose the right flowers for the occasion
