The Chysanthemum & the Wedding

chrysanthemumThe chrysanthemum is one of the most popular wedding flowers, but they are far from boring. With over 2,000 varieties to choose from, the mum can fit into any color scheme or wedding theme. Known as the official flower of November, it makes an ideal choice for fall weddings; as it blooms well into the autumn months, you can generally get fresh local mums wherever you are.


The versatile mum also fits nearly any budget, much more affordable than many of the more exotic blooms. Although easier on the wallet, they can give the appearance of many more expensive flowers.  The spiky petaled spider mum looks amazing in cascade bouquets, evoking feelings of tropical rain forests and flowers. The mum even has a unique feature many flowers do not. They are bred in a lime green color almost never seen in flowers; so adding the green button or spray mum to your bouquets adds green accents with beautiful textures.


Chrysanthemums have many personalities. They can be gracefully elegant – add white mums to white roses, lilies and hydrangea for a classically sophisticated bouquet or centerpieces. Viceroy (or football) chrysanthemum are lush and lavish, with a head as large as a peony; making this flower a wonderful addition to centerpieces or abundant ceremony floral arrangements. Of course, mums are also available in traditional fall colors, perfectly embellishing  a country wedding wildflower bouquet.
