Before you finalise your bouquet, consult this research for the most popular wedding flowers

Wedding flowers are chosen for a number of reasons, most typically for their seasonality, colours and aesthetic. However, there are several choices for your bouquet that prove popular time and time again. 

Wedding insurance specialists Protectivity have researched UK Google search volumes to discover the most popular wedding flowers and the results may surprise you.

Cosmos came out on top, followed by roses, poppies, sunflowers and peonies. A full list of the top ten wedding flowers can be found below:

  1. Cosmos

  3. White rose
  4. Poppies
  5. Sunflowers
  6. Peonies
  7. Hydrangeas
  8. Daffodils
  9. Lavender
  10. Orchids

In response to the findings, Protectivity has also shared its top tips for choosing your wedding flowers:

  • Find your wedding florist: You should feel confident in your chosen florist that they can deliver what you want for your wedding, and pick flowers that ensure you get the most of your budget.
  • Budget: Set and share your budget with your florist, and discuss what floral pieces are most important to you for your wedding day.
  • Inspiration: Decide on a style and colour scheme by using Pinterest to determine the look and feel of your wedding flowers.
  • Style: Your florist should be able to look at images of your venue in order to get the look, feel and style of the place and spot any areas that might need an extra touch.
  • Seasonality and availability: If you give your florist a colour scheme and style references, but let them pick flower varieties freely, they will be able to buy flowers that are in season and will therefore be cheaper and of better quality than other varieties.
