Don’t write off these flirty florals just because you can find them at your local grocer! Alstroemeria (also known as Peruvian Lily) are a great way to add red to your floral arrangements.  They are hardy and last well in arrangements and even bouquets.  I like that they are a little more ‘casual’ red and lend well to a fun and flirty wedding. Another great thing about alstroemeria is that you get multiple blooms per stem!

I’m squishing several categories into one here, but they fit well together. Red Mums/Poms/Daisies are great additions to your wedding flowers, especially if you are going for a bit more casual or country vibe.  I personally am always a huge fan of the football mums.

Tulips are a great way to incorporate red into your wedding colors.  They are a great for DIY arrangements because they are hearty so long as they are kept well hydrated. I love how tulips can be both super formal or ultra casual all depending on how you style them. They even come in exotic varieties such as double blooms, fringed, and parrot!

The whole bridal world is currently having a love affair with ranunculus, and for good reason!  It’s delicate fluffy blooms are adorable.  And they come in a fabulous red hue.  Ranunculus can be a bit tricky to DIY just because of their wiry stems.  I think the best bet is to embrace their unruliness in your designs for a wild and free look.
