Get Inspired! Fabulous Flowers for the Big Day

Whenever anyone thinks of weddings, they usually envision a day filled with flowers — from the bouquets and boutonnieres to the ceremony and reception décor. Flowers create such an unforgettable ambience of beauty and romance that even brides who marry at city hall still want to carry a bouquet. 

Some of the prettiest blooms I’ve seen recently are the creation of David C.H. Austin, who has introduced over 200 varieties of English roses since his first, the Constance Spry, was presented in 1961. These roses are especially lush and romantic making them ideally suited for wedding-day splendor. Here, a look at how David Austin roses lend visual magic to the big day:
