Carnation Wedding Bouquets: Give This Sweetheart a Chance!

Can you believe that many people are disadvantaged compared to the sweet and humble carnation? During my many years as a florist, I can `t remember how often customers would say." I would like a mixed bouquet of long-term, but you can not carnations "I could never understand why people have this misconception at this long, beautiful flower. Secretly, I was in the back sniffing the hardy carnation flowers and delighting in their sweet enveloping fragrance. The white were my favorite.

If a wedding flower, the carnation flower is the ideal for many brides looking for beauty, style and low price. Let `s face it, there is probably no other flower as cheap as the carnation.
And if isolated and grouped en masse in a monochromatic (one color) scheme, the carnation transforms and shines like the elegant beauty that really in the core. The most beautiful and stylish carnation bouquets are the most simple.

Carnations come in many colors including white, red, yellow, burgundy, purple and all shades of pink and orange. There are also many two-colored carnations shades such as purple and white and orange and yellow. There are basically two types of carnations: the standard carnations and mini carnations.

The standard carnations, the larger that are ideal for wedding bouquets to use for the bride and bridesmaids. They can also be used for centerpieces and flower girls' baskets. The mini-carnations are perfect to use for boutonnieres and corsages. Standard carnations can be used also for boutonnieres, but the mini's are more suited for this purpose due to their size and hardiness.

Carnation bouquets are easy to make if you decide to do it yourself. Just group some carnations, for example 25 to 12 for the bride and bridesmaids. Make sure all heads are even and wrap with floral tape, 2 or 3 at a time until you get a solid mass of flowers. Garnish with green ribbon and bouquets for your conclusion.

Carnation boutonnieres and corsages have many advantages. They are very strong, and do not break easily. They can tolerate more hugs than roses or daisies without breaking or shattering. They are easy to work and have no wires, so they are easier to work than roses. Finally, they take a long time as compared with another type of flour from the water and they are much less expensive than any other type of flour.
