Here is everything you need to know about some of the most popular wild wedding flowers inclusive of their meanings, color pairings and seasons.

  • The Peruvian Lily (Code Name: Alstroemeria)

The Peruvian Lily has small but bright blooms. They can be found growing in clusters with their petals sometimes freckled. Not only do they make a lovely and cost-effective bouquet, they serve as the perfect backdrop for primary flowers. They are not seasonal as they can be gotten all year round. Its color ranges from orange, red, lavender, pink, white, yellow and flecked. If you have a sensitive nose, then it will please you to know that this flower is scentless.

  • Amaryllis

Looking for that wow effect when you walk down the aisle, then the Amaryllis wild wedding flower can be your partner in crime. Not only does it produce maximum effect, it has an extra-long stalk that make it easy to grip.  The flower consists of two to five large blossoms shaped like trumpets. The blossoms open in succession at the top of the stalk.

The origin of the Amaryllis flower can be traced to the rainforests of South America and Africa and it is grown from a bulb. The colors available include salmon, white, pale green, red, pink, pale yellow. Although they are expensive, they are extremely rare but long-lasting. The season of the flower is from November to April and only the Belladonna specie has a mild fragrance.

  • Bouvardia

Looking for a little more bulk in your wedding bouquet? Why not consider the Bouvardia wedding flower? The star shaped blossoms appear in clusters that burst straight from the leafy green stem. The flower is very delicate in nature and it fits the look of a down to earth bride and pair very well with Stephanotis blooms.

The flower can be found all year-round and comes in varying shades of red, white, peach, and pink. The scent is a bit faint and not to strong to cause discomfort.

  • Calla Lily

Cala lily also goes by the name Arum lily. The trumpet-shaped has its roots in the continent of Africa and is said to symbolize “beauty”. There are two common types: a mini flower that pairs well with boutonnieres and nosegays and another one with a large head but smooth and long stem for presentations and tall arrangements.

The flower can be found all year but its peak period is late spring and winter. The most common colors are dark burgundy, orange, ivory, dark pink, red, and yellow. The flower has no scent.
