What's The Must-Have Flower For Your Wedding? - Part 3: Cymbidium Orchid
Season: Mostly available year round.
Price: Moderate to high. Worth every penny!!
Colors: white, rusty orange, light to dark pink, green, yellow, burgundy/plum, new brown tones
Meaning: Cymbidium orchids most often symbolize strength, beauty, and wealth.
Cool fact: Once a Cymbidium flower opens, that flower can last (on the plant) for as long as 2-3 months! Off the stock, it will hold up for at least 2 or 3 days. You can also get smaller "mini" Cymbidium orchids for boutonnieres or corsages.
Why we LOVE them: Cymbidiums have such bold colors and can make a grand statement all on their own. They can give any wedding a feeling of luxury and elegance.
