Picking the right Punta Cana flowers for weddings is tough. Depending on your choice, the day you have been waiting for your entire life could be either bland or full of relished memories. Flowers have a strong influence on the mood of your celebration, and you should be careful with the type, color, and scent you desire.
By choosing a destination wedding in Punta Cana, you have
taken the first step towards a wedding that is fun, romantic and
memorable. Now, I have taken the liberty to point out a few flowers
that will help you get the most out of your awaited ceremony.
Who doesn't love roses? The flowers of the Genus Rosa are a must in almost every wedding. With hundreds of varieties available, you can mix and match until you get the look you are looking for. They have a rather strong aroma, and even as buds, they are appealing for making flower arrangements.
You can find them in a variety of colors: pink, red, lavender,
green, white, yellow, and even orange. Rainbow, blue, and black roses,
which you might have seen at some point, are the result of using dyed
water over the white variety.
The best part about roses is that each type has a different meaning, which can make your special day even better. (source)
- Red roses are universally known for expressing deep love. Desire, longing, and devotion are also feelings conveyed through them. You might be wondering, why are they often sold in dozens? Well, believe it or not, 12 roses have a very specific meaning, which is something like “ be mine.”
- Nothing expresses desire and passion like orange roses. In addition to being more tropical friendly (making it ideal for Punta Cana), the orange rose sets the tone for a marriage that will remain ignited for years to come.
- What about white roses? Although often symbolizing innocence and purity, they also carry the meaning of new beginnings. Sprinkling their petals all over the aisle, or using them as part of your bouquet and centerpieces in the reception is the perfect starting point for the newlyweds.
- Yellow roses evoke the feelings of caring, joy, and warmth. Although rarely used by themselves in romantic settings, they are often mixed with red and white varieties to provide a more cheerful atmosphere.
- Sweetness, gratitude, and elegance are what pink roses are all about. The emotions conveyed through them aren't as intense as the ones of the red roses, but they have a soothing aura around them making the pink variety ideal for any romantic stage.- While it is less intense than red or orange, the lavender rose is more about the tenderness of “love at first sight.” If its shade is closer to purple, you can use it for a more elegant and majestic approach (like a royal wedding!).
- Can you use green
roses at a wedding? Sure you can. They are
used to signify a new life of harmony and prosperity for the bride and
groom. When mixed with other varieties, they enhance the tropical
atmosphere of any Caribbean setting.
In the following video, you can appreciate
how the appropriate flowers can enhance your wedding in Punta Cana:
Like roses, sunflowers are an essential part of any
wedding. (reference) These
flowers of the Genus Helianthus are known to shift the direction they
face throughout the day, following the rise and set of the sun. One
interesting fact is not that all of them are yellow as some have
light-shaded red petals.
Sunflowers also thrive in tropical climates such as the one in the Dominican Republic, so you won't have to worry about their availability.
Unsurprisingly, the meaning of the flower is tied to the sun.
Symbolizing happiness, strength, positivity, long life, and dedicated
love, the flower is an excellent addition to centerpieces and other
decorations during your special day.
Not many flowers are as elegant and glamorous as orchids. (resource) With over 20,000 species, you can be certain that at least one of them needs to present at your wedding in Punta Cana. Not only do they come in different colors such as red, pink, white, and purple but also have strong fragrances that will lighten the mood on your day. The genus Phalaenopsis or moth orchids are known to have beautiful flowers that fit wonderfully well anywhere.
Orchids represent love, beauty, and fertility; however, depending on the color, you might express something else.
Red orchids symbolize passion, which are perfect to
show the love between the couple. If expressing joy and happiness is
what you are aiming for, the pink ones will do the trick.
show purity, elegance, and beauty. Using purple ones for your bouquet
and centerpieces will
overflow your wedding with a sense admiration, respect, and grandeur.
The Lilium genus, which encompasses the true lilies, are a group of plants with captivating flowers and pleasant aroma. They come in white, yellow, orange, red, and purple. Lilies are somewhat exotic, and they can beautify any ceremony. The oriental types are especially flashy and scented.
Lilies represent purity, passion, and refined beauty. Of
course, as with any other flower, the color may change its meaning.
White lilies such as the Madonna Lily symbolize innocence and purity.
Wishes of good health are related to the yellow varieties. Orange and
red ones are more about passion and love, making them the preferred
alternative for wedding bouquets.
If what you want is an atmosphere of
magnificence and grandiosity, the purple ones will give you what you
need. Calla lilies are exceptional for a grand ceremony.
The genus Hydrangea, with over 70 species of plants, is quite
popular in weddings. What makes it so unique? For starters, hydrangea
flowers adapt well to different climates, and a few varieties like the
mophead grow in such a way that they are
quite attractive for important events.
Hydrangeas may come in white, pink, and different shades of purple depending on the alkalinity of the soil. (article)
Overall, the hydrangea flowers symbolize heartfelt emotions.
Abundance and purity are connected with the white variety. The pinks,
which are a personal favorite, represent the tenderness of love and
romance. Purple ones show abundance and wealth.
The carnation or Dianthus
caryophyllus is a mesmerizing flower
that thrives in the tropics. The pink and purple shades covering its
petals show the refinement and grace that is hard to find elsewhere.
Even though purple carnations are the most common, white, yellow, pink,
and red varieties are also available. But carnations are more than just
showy flowers; their sweet fragrance is known to embellish the joyful
atmosphere of any wedding.
Love and affection are what carnations are all about. The
white, red, and purple flowers are often used for big celebrations.
White symbolizes the purity of love; red ones are connected to romance.
Oddly enough, the purple ones represent capriciousness.
If you think you have seen all the pretty flowers, you are
wrong. You still need to take a peek at the gerberas. Gerberas are
loved for their adaptability and beauty.
Gerbera hybrida is one of the most popular varieties with white, yellow, orange, red, and pink tones. Sometimes you may find that petals of the same flower have different colors.
Gerberas represent the desire for a happy life. White flowers
are connected to innocence, yellow to overall cheerfulness, oranges
express the energy of the sun, red, as you may imagine, symbolize the
intensity of love, and pink shows admiration.
