Wedding flower arrangements consist of several elements including filler flowers. Focal flowers will gain the most attention while mass flowers add volume. Filler blooms, while they are smaller, are by no means less important. These flowers fill the gaps in between so that your bouquet looks truly complete. Here are some of the best flowers to use as fillers for your wedding arrangements.
If you want filler flowers that have a daisy-like appearance, asters are for you! They are available in various colours and they can be used in handheld bouquets as well as centrepieces. It is important to make sure that you take care if you are planning an outdoor wedding since these blooms have a way of attracting bees.
A popular option in all bouquets, including wedding flowers. These filler flowers are small, white and you only need a few stems to create the desired effect. They can be added to any arrangement since they are perfectly white so you do not have to worry about them clashing with your colour scheme.
These are larger blooms that can easily be mistaken for mass flowers. However, in larger displays, they can be used as filler flowers because each stem is covered with many blooms. They can also help give your display some added height.
These flowers are available in various joyful colours which are perfect for reflecting the happy atmosphere of any wedding. They may have a musty scent but this is usually only apparent if you get really close to them. If you plan on using them in corsages, for example, you may want to smell these filler flowers first.
