In Season Now: Pretty Ways to Use Amaryllises in Your Wedding Arrangements

Updated 08/16/19

Amaryllises are starting to come into season right now, making them the perfect choice for fall and winter weddings. The blooms come in a wide range of colors and sizes, from crisp white to pale pink and deep orange to rich burgundy. Some varieties even feature striped and variegated petals, which are always incredibly striking. The dramatic blooms have very showy, trumpet-like petal; the flowers look stunning on their own, as well as mixed with other blooms and fresh greenery for added texture and depth. If you love amaryllises like we do, check out some of our favorite ways to feature them in your wedding arrangements.

Coral Amaryllis Bridal Bouquet (above): This lush and romantic bouquet mixes amaryllis stems with garden roses, calla lilies, Dutch tulips, dusty miller, peonies, ranunculuses, and pieris.

Peach Amaryllis Bouquet: This pretty arrangement features amaryllis blooms mixed with textured elements like dahlias, hypericum berries, clear-glass ornaments (how perfect would this be for a winter wedding?), and a wooly wrap around the bouquet handle.

Cocktail Table Arrangements: Cluster smaller amaryllis arrangements throughout the reception, like on lounge tables and at the cocktail bar.

Pink Amaryllis Centerpiece: These pretty flowers also mix well with other blooms, like lisanthuses, astilble, and dusty miller. Arrange them in a simple mason jar for a simple spring centerpiece.

Orange Centerpieces: For a dramatic look, arrange clusters of different blossoms in the same color palette on a single reception table. Here, we have amaryllises alongside vases of roses, carnations, and poppies.

Deep Red Centerpieces: This incredibly pretty burgundy variety looks gorgeous paired with red flowering branches.
