Orchids: These perennials come in many different varieties, but each plant can stand alone as a delicate, striking centerpiece or be blended into a larger bouquet to add shape. Floral design by By Yena Designs, photo by Mark Stephen Kornbluth Photography.


Stephanotis: Adding almost an Art Deco texture to any bouquet, these traditional wedding flowers (whose meaning is “marital happiness”) are also great as filler flowers. Photo by Flower Factor/Flickr.
