Meaning: Beautiful pink roses are said to represent grace, joy and sweetness.
We can’t talk about blush colour schemes without taking a closer look at roses. Not only are roses simply beautiful and available in a range of pink and blush tones, they are also hardy. The thick stems make them perfect for a long lasting bridal bouquet and wedding decor ideas that will stay fresh all day.
Roses can be beautifully mixed with other bridal blooms or can look just as stunning as a single flower choice. They always look amazing and it’s easy to see why they are consistently one of the most popular wedding flowers.
Meaning: Pretty peonies represent romance, good fortune and a happy marriage – what could be more perfect for your wedding day?
I have always had a soft spot for peonies and they took centre stage in my own bridal bouquet (pictured) – tied together with some additional lace from my wedding dress.
There’s something so romantic about peonies, in their delicate pink shade with layers upon layers of pretty petals, curving together to create a stunning flower. Peonies can also be teamed with roses to make a beautiful on-trend floral wedding arch that would be perfect for your wedding ceremony or as a stunning backdrop for your wedding photographs.
Meaning: The pretty clematis is said to represent mental beauty.
The clematis flower has been making somewhat of a statement at weddings in recent months. This pretty and symmetrical flower can be chosen in ivory or pale pink to compliment your blush themed wedding day.
This gentle flower is very delicate and looks its best when nestled amongst larger flowers that will give your bridal bouquet more structure.

Meaning: One of the ancient meanings of the anemone is anticipation and excitement for the future – something you will definitely be feeling on your wedding day!
With its dark centre, the anemone is a statement flower that is perfect for brides looking for blooms that are pretty yet unique. This bold choice can also be perfect for your wedding centrepieces, offering something a little bit different that traditional roses or lilies.
Meaning: The orchid represents strength, beauty and love.
Pretty orchids can be a stunning addition to your blush wedding palette. This unusual shape of flower will look gorgeous in your bridal bouquet and can make the perfect statement wedding centrepiece.
Due to their delicate nature and price, you may want to mix your blush pink orchids in with hardier and more cost effective flowers – such as roses.
Top Tips for Creating a Blush Colour Scheme
- Don’t be afraid to mix your flowers – A palette of varied blush tones will look amazing and you won’t then be spending hours trying to match every wedding detail to one specific shade
- Spend your budget wisely – If you are looking to create an elegant feel with blush flowers then hold back some of your budget from other areas so you can go bold with your blooms
