Flowers to decorate your Wedding Cake

Posted by eFlorist on 09/08/14 15:08

Flowers can be used to not only decorate your wedding and the venue, but your cake also can be garnished beautifully with flowers that complement your theme perfectly and even add flavour in some cases. We’re not saying this is the most common practice but if you are planning your wedding and want ideas that will make sure your guests remember your big day for years to come then read on.

It’s important to talk to your caterer and to your florist about this request in order to be able to make sure the flowers on the cake are of the same colour scheme and style but also so that the style of the cake matches and incorporates the flowers. We’d recommend natural, fresh flowers over artificial flowers but make sure the flowers are non-toxic! Though the flowers will likely be in plastic stem holders to ensure they don’t directly touch the cake.

Some flowers that are known to be toxic are:

  • Calla lily
  • Arum
  • Hyacinth
  • Lily of the Valley
  • Jasmine
  • Snowdrop
  • Tulip
  • Hydrangea
  • Birds of Paradise (Strelitzia)
  • Pink Carnations

Don’t be disheartened by this list, there are still many beautiful stems that can be used to decorate your wedding cake that will be sure to be remembered. For example:

  • Roses
  • Petunias
  • Orchids
  • Daisy
  • Lilies

The possibilities are endless when you think about it and we really help this helps towards planning your wedding and making a beautiful and memorable day. For more inspiration on flowers or if you would like to send flowers, check out our same day flower delivery range.
