From Filler to Front & Center: Best Filler Flowers & Foliage for Wedding Arrangements
Choosing flowers for your wedding is one of the most exciting experiences in the wedding planning process. Surrounded by a sea of colors and scents, you get to picture these blooms adding beauty to your big day. Flowers are the literal centerpiece of your décor so you want them to be perfect. But what most brides don’t know is that filer plants also influence how well put together your décor will look. Though you may know the exact flowers you want to feature in your bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces, filler foliage is another story. Thankfully, we’re here to help. Here are some of the best filler plants and flowers for your wedding day.
For a royal feel, choose myrtle to accent your NYC wedding flowers. Ever since Queen Victoria had a sprig of myrtle in her bouquet, brides across the world have been incorporating in their own wedding flowers. The plant itself symbolizes love and marriage, making it the perfect fit for any wedding. Myrtle’s gorgeous green hue compliments a variety of flowers, lending a contrast and allowing the blooms to really pop.
To add a sweet scent and delicate element to your NYC wedding flowers, Stephanotis is the best choice. This filler flower is known for promoting marital happiness. The small, pure white bloom is the perfect way to accent bouquets and centerpieces in soft pastel tones, or even to break up vivid colors with an unexpected shock of white. Even alone, Stephanotis will make for a gorgeous bouquet with diamond accents in the center of the flower for ladies looking for the classic bridal white look.
Creating a winter wonderland with flower arrangements is easy with Dusty Miller. The foliage flower produces white leaves that look like they have been dusted with freshly fallen snow. With the subtle color, it makes an easy addition to any style bouquet, centerpiece or boutonniere. This filler plant is perfect for winter white and rustic chic weddings or even for a bride who enjoys out of the box florals.
Queen Anne’s Lace
For a bolder version of baby’s breath, Queen Anne’s Lace is a great alternative. The flower has a delicate cluster of small white flowers. The flowers are gathered at the top of the stem, creating a fuller, more well-rounded look when compared to baby’s breath. The flower symbolizes magic, trust, and healing.
Though not often talked about, foliage and fillers are just as important as flowers on your wedding day as they set the stage for your blooms and tell the story of your big day.
