Use African Flowers for Wedding Flower Ideas

Using African flowers for wedding festivities is an easy and inexpensive way to bring that tropical African flair to your big day.

They're colorful and you can find them in just about every possible color so matching them to your wedding colors shouldn't be a problem. Well, that is of course if your colors aren't metallic glaucous and royal xanadu... yes, trust me, those ARE real colors

They're exotic... From the open savannah, to rolling hills, to the coastal shores... African flowers will transport you to someplace different and give your wedding a nice airy atmosphere.

When considering using African flowers for wedding ceremonies, the choices are many. You're going to want to choose one that is in high bloom during the period your wedding is taking place.

From the lesser known flowers such as kniphofia and protea, to the better known ones... orchids to lilies, violets to delphiniums and daisies... The choices are many and almost seemingly endless.

Following is a list of all the African flowers known to man... okay, well maybe not ALL, after all there is so much of mother Africa that is yet undiscovered. Anyhow, it is a list of most of the flowers of Africa that I could find... and that I'm somewhat familiar with. You can use the information provided to help you decide which one(s) will work best for your big day.

Still can't decide? Then consider using some in your bouquet, others in your bridesmaids' bouquets (if you are having a traditional church ceremony, that is), and still others at your reception venue. Don't forget your flower girls' hair, the groomsmen's boutonnieres, etc.
