Lilies have long symbolized chastity and virtue, which made them a popular addition to an old fashioned or traditional wedding. While looking for modern options for wedding flowers, however, today’s brides have started using bright pink stargazer lilies for the ideal combination of contemporary love and time-honored devotion.
Contemporary and Happy Flowers
The name of the stargazer lily is entirely appropriate since it’s difficult to take your eyes off this beautiful flower when someone brings it into a room or a bride walks down the aisle with stargazers in her bouquet.
Recently developed in the 1970s, stargazer lilies were named because of the way they look up at the sky when they open. In addition to their bright and joyful persona, stargazer lilies also smell like heaven as a result of the plant breeder’s efforts to combine the fragrance of the Asiatic lily and the look of the Oriental lily.
Although pink stargazers are a vivid addition to your wedding, you don’t necessarily need to focus upon pink as your primary color. In fact, pink stargazers look lovely with décor in colors like blue, pale yellow, and orange. Think of the stunning combination of orange tiger lilies and pink stargazer lilies for your wedding bouquet.
Depending upon your color scheme, you can choose almost any traditional wedding flower for inclusion in your bouquets, table arrangements, sprays, and other flower displays. If you’ve decided on a pink wedding, your stargazers will look at home in arrangements with classic gerbera daisies, carnations, and roses.
Or you can try pairing it with roses and hydrangea in a beautiful, large centerpiece.
If you’re interested in getting a little more adventurous with your flowers, you may also consider using orchids with your lilies. Something about the striking architecture of these two flowers allows them to set one another off beautifully, particularly when used in cascade bouquets.
The Perfect Flower for a Contemporary Wedding
If you want to create a minimalist and contemporary look for your wedding, you may think about using only stargazer lilies in very simple arrangements. They look fashionable and chic when allowed to float in round bowls of water, and they look elegant with their long stems placed in soaring vases.
Stargazer lilies are a versatile addition to your wedding flowers whether they’re your premier bloom, or they’re part of a lovely bouquet of different orchids, roses, and carnations.
