You might recognize some of the most popular flower types from scrolling social media for wedding inspiration pictures, but you probably don’t know all of the options that are available to you. Luckily, The Knot has created a blog post that documents the 65 most popular wedding flowers of all time. Make sure that you keep these flower types in mind as you’re planning your bouquet!

Here are a few of the most popular wedding flower types that The Knot has highlighted:

  • Wild Roses

If you don’t feel confident enough to identify and pick out these flowers yourself, don’t worry. You can keep certain colors, textures, and sizes that you particularly like in mind.

If you’re still feeling a bit overwhelmed by the prospect of putting your bouquet together from scratch, Sola Wood Flowers will come to your rescue!

Creating with Sola Wood Flowers

Sola Wood Flowers has a wide variety of types of flowers for your wedding. You can browse the wedding flower types that are available to find which flowers will match your desired style and color scheme. Many of their wedding flower styles are designed to imitate and reflect some of the most popular wedding flowers, like the different blooms referenced by The Knot. 

One huge benefit of using Sola Wood Flowers is that they’re made out of natural, dried tapioca wood that can be dyed any color and shaped into a variety of styles. This also means that they won’t wilt or die. So, you won’t be limited to the live flowers that are available in your area and season. You can arrange a bouquet of flowers that will look beautiful throughout your wedding day and be a precious keepsake for years to come. You’ll always be able to achieve the look you’ve been dreaming of when you order your blooms from Sola Wood Flowers.

Do It Yourself Collection

If you’re looking to order a DIY bouquet set from Sola Wood Flowers, take a look at their DIY bouquet collection. This collection includes large assortments of dried flowers that are formed to imitate different types of wedding flowers. You can mix and match assortments to get different sizes and looks that you’re interested in. There are a few different sizes of flowers, such as 2-inch and 3-inch flowers. There are also skin flowers and skinless flowers. Skin flowers will have more of a natural, boho look since brown portions of the tapioca wood skin will still be on the flower. The skinless flowers are more of a blank slate, coming in a creamy white wooden color. Both of these types of flowers dye very nicely. With Sola Wood Flower dyes, you’ll be able to achieve specific shades of colors that would be very rare in natural live flowers. This is perfect for you if you love artistic color schemes for your florals.
