Pick Local Flowers
They are arguably one of the most important decisions you’ll make when planning your wedding. FLOWERS! The bouquet, boutonnieres, centerpieces, petals sprinkled down the isle… this nod to an ancient custom is a great way to tie in your passion for Costa Rica and it’s stunning flora. Let’s start with the best of the best! The Guaria Morada is an exquisite orchid known for its purple hues and diamond-like shimmer and has been named the national flower of Costa Rica. Sounds ideal,right? Well there’s more! According to Costa Rican tradition, the Guaria Morada brings fortune and good luck. It evokes peace and love as well as hope for the future. However these are a couple downfalls to this almost flawless flower: it can be difficult to find because of the very small blooming period which also makes it quite pricey. But fear not! Beyond the Guaria Morada, Costa Rica is also home to over 1,300 other varieties of orchid. Notably the white orchid, which has become a near staple in many Bride's bouquets. Or if you already have another color scheme in mind chances are there is an orchid here for you!
Another great choice that gives you a wide variety to choose from is Ginger. With a large family that comes in many sizes and variations, this is a great option to have when deciding what to put in small boutonnieres or large centerpieces. Not to mention the range in color from the brightest red to the softest pink; you're bound to find one that goes along with your other choices.
Now if you're a Bride who needs a showstopper, an attention getter, a statement piece, maybe a Heliconia or Birds of Paradise would be worth looking at. These two flowers are all of those things combined! Vivid colors with a unique shape and height set them apart from the usual Wedding arrangements. These are sure to give you that real tropical feel throughout your wedding.
