One of our clients recently has selected Protea to use in their wedding day floral design! There are many varieties of Protea but today I am focusing on King and Blushing Bride. Enjoy viewing the many ways to incorporate this flower into your floral design not only in your bouquet but also alter arrangements and more.
King Protea can be a huge budget buster so be sure to use them sparingly.
Another fun option is the Blushing Bride Protea when you go for smaller details such as the boutonniere.
To make a large statement at the alter using King Protea can bring the WOW factor.
Another way to use this flower in a way your guests will surely notice is along the aisle. If you don’t want to have a flower for every aisle you can cut it down to only the front and back two aisles.
I love the floral combos in both of these bouquets but one has a more rustic vibe including more greenery and twine/lace for the wrap. The other has more of a fall feeling using maroon and orange accents.
Here’s another fun example of Blushing Bride and these are approximately $7.00-$10.00 per stem. (Each stem has a cluster of many blooms.)
King Protea can be found from $8.75-$14.00 per stem, it all depends on the season and florist fee.
What an amazing combo with succulents and seeded Eucalyptus. Be sure not to order this flower too far in advance make sure it only comes in about a day or two prior to your event to hit the peak during your reception.
With a smooth design on fondant cake having spectacular floral design creates an eye popping display. The drift wood display on the left is also an awesome way to create a base for the escort floral design.
If you are looking for a flower with a large impact you want to go for the King Protea but when you are looking for a small detail shoot for the blushing bride. Although Blushing Bride doesn’t take up as much space I appreciate the design based on the fact that it is out of the norm and not used as frequently. There are so many other varieties on Protea such as Pincushion and Hot Pink (similar looking to ginger), and more. If this flower can fit into your budget why not use something that your guests are sure to admire.
