42 Carnation Wedding Bouquets That Inspire
Carnations are, to put it simply, the underdog of the flower world. While popular, they’re not exactly everyone’s first choice for a wedding. But they can be and should be used for beautiful wedding arrangements, they are very cost-effective but don’t look cheap. Here are some tips and ideas to use them.
What Are Carnation Advantages?
The durability of carnations actually makes them an excellent choice for bouquets. They can last an entire wedding day without water, which means the flower traditionally labeled as a filler flower can actually be a focal point in a bouquet design without any worries. Carnations can play a huge part in your bouquet design simply because of their reliability; you’ll be able to count on their availability when weighing the decision for a late fall wedding versus the spring.
Full and exuberant, carnations create a lush factor when designing. They allow us to add depth to our color palette. Their beauty, texture, and strength add value to designs as an accent flower, especially with all of the new varieties and colors being offered by growers. They give life to designs for a fraction of the cost their counterparts, like perhaps ranunculus or peonies, do. A low price tag means you’ll still come out ahead, whether you’ve selected a mono-floral design, or are positioning them as accent flowers.

What To Pair Carnations With?
The right floral pairing is the key to a great floral design. Pair carnations with garden roses, spray roses, or other round mass flowers for a textural accent. Paired alongside such blooms, along with peonies or even hydrangea, carnations have the opportunity to shine—and maybe even steal the spotlight. Carnations are known for their ruffled petals, easily creating a layered effect without much effort. Embrace the ruffle and accentuate it with other flowers with a similar effect, like ranunculus. The end result will be a multi-dimensional design teeming with life and beauty.
Sometimes the greenery makes the bouquet. A perfect option for a wedding in the spring, accentuate a blush pink bouquet with a variety of greenery: dusty miller (otherwise known as lamb’s ear), hypericum berries, and variegated pittosporum used in this romantic pink and green bouquet that exudes femininity.
