Stargazer bridal bouquets are easy to style when coordinated with your wedding colors or theme. These long stemmed flowers have 6 petals forming a large blossom, and they emanate a subtle fragrance. They are available in many colors from white to bright yellow to pink. Stargazer lilies are common in bridal arrangements because they represent purity and love. Use these tips for styling a stargazer bridal bouquet.
Stargazer lilies grow in different colors like pure white, white with pink, red, bright pink, yellow, and orange. Because of their variety, they can be easily incorporated into a seasonal bridal bouquet. Stargazers are large, so only use 2 to 3 stems in your arrangement.
If your wedding is in autumn, create a bouquet with orange or yellow stargazer lilies and other fall flowers in autumnal colors like rust colored calla lilies, red kangaroo paw, or purple asters. For winter, pair red stargazers with red rose hips and green holly. For summer and spring, combine white stargazers with blue hydrangea, colored roses, or white calla lilies.
With their slightly curled speckled petals and vibrant colors, stargazer lilies have an exotic look. For this reason, they are ideal for tropical, beach, or island themed events. Incorporate white, yellow, or pink lilies into a bridal bouquet with pink or light green orchids. To add interesting texture to the arrangement, combine them with birds or paradise or pink ginger.
Stargazer lilies are such beautiful flowers that they can be the star of the show. There's no need to pair them with anything at all. Arrange 5 to 6 pink stargazer lily stems into a sleek bouquet and adorn with a ribbon. For an elegant minimalist bouquet, arrange 5 white stargazer lilies into a bouquet and accent with long cascading thin palm leaves.
