Magnolias aren’t the first flower to come to mind when thinking of weddings, but they are a beautiful choice if you want a flower that not every other bride will walk down the aisle with. These large blossoms are associated with nobility, love of nature, beauty, and feminine tenacity. There are more than 80 varieties of this flowering tree which is why you can find blossoms in white, ivory, light pink, purple, and even yellow. I love them in branch bouquets, on cakes, and as centerpieces. Of course there are many options for artisan made magnolias as well, whether you place a silk magnolia in your hair, or a paper magnolia on each of your favors.
