Wedding Flowers – Hawaiian Style

Deciding on a beautiful tropical island setting on Hawaii’s Garden Island is perfect start for those yearning for a memorable Kauai wedding. Many brides will be happy to learn that the Hawaiian islands offer some of the most beautiful bridal flowers in the world. Many couples find that a part of the wedding planning process of deciding on a photographer and a location involves deciding on fresh flowers. Hawaii weddings offer any bride-to-be an opportunity to choose between bridal bouquets, headbands or lei. Hawaii brides will find that bridal flower options run the gamut between the boldly colored and exotic to the pale and heavily scented. There is no right choice – just what the couple feel they are most comfortable with.

Hawaiian Wedding Flowers

The array of fresh flowers in Hawaii makes it possible for any couple to opt for several bouquets. Some brides prefer their bouquets to be traditional or a simple spray of softly hued roses and baby’s breath that compliment that perfect gown. Others prefer one that is created out of gorgeous and exotic florals to contrast a beautiful bold colored gown, or one that is created with a myriad of tropical beauties that include bird of paradise, anthuriums and protea.
For Kauai weddings, brides have another unique option. Lei have been the symbol of love for many generations, and Hawaii weddings are the perfect opportunity to include this fresh flower Hawaii icon in the ceremony. Wedding couples can include lei in various ways. They can include simple single strand for the wedding party, or a simple garland for the groom and parents. Brides will frequently opt for multiple strands of a wonderful scented and classically romantic pikake or tuberose in addition to a bouquet.

Hawaiian Bridal Bouquet

In addition to bouquets and lei, many bridal couples opt for the more modern circle of flowers. This oversized garland defines the forever lasting love between two individuals and defines the precise spot where vows will be exchanged on their special day. Typically placed in front of the Kauai minister, the flowers encircles the bridal couple with orchids, pua melia and other island flora and seals their promise to each other.
Getting married in Hawaii would not be complete without making these gorgeous Hawaii flowers a part of any Kauai wedding. For weddings in Hawaii, there is no such thing as too many flowers!
