Gladiolus or ‘glads’ have a lot of potential but are hardly seen. We believe that they can make an amazing wedding bouquet. There are so many reasons. First they come in a full rainbow of colors, and many varieties have a mixed tone where one blends into the the other, like the yellow and peach bouquet below. Others have a beautiful white lip and ruffles, such as the deep red flowers. It’s great for a sophisticated bride and her bridesmaids. For a wedding bouquet they are soft, delicate and simply beautiful. We like monobotanical glads as it really emphasizes their delicate petals. These bouquets aren’t quick to put together but we think it does give an unique look
Florists Favorite – Gladiolas
I love this Florists Favorite because glads are one of my favorites too! Also because not only does Koko of Koko Floral Design have a love for glads, but she’s developed a signature way of working with them that is really modern. First, here’s what Derek has to say about gladiolus:
And I agree! They are so worth it! I have to admit that I normally don’t love how the ultra dainty handles of an all wired bouquet look, with no stems – but I think that because these are monobotanical and usually the ribbon matches the glads, it looks really chic here.
My favorite bouquet is the deep reddish pink variety with the barely there white tips on the glads!
