Yellow Wedding Flowers

Are you looking for yellow wedding flowers?  Here’s a quick run down of some of the flowers that you could choose from.


There’s a number of choices of yellow roses.  This yellow rose bouquet (pictured) was created using the variety called ‘Vanilla Sky’.  This variety has a lovely shape and colour. There was a Tom Cruise film by that name – I’m not sure if the rose was named after it, but I’d like to think it was.

Other common yellow roses include ‘Sphinx’ which is a more golden yellow and ‘Ilios’ which can have a lime green tinge to it.


Yellow lilies work very well in table arrangements and venue arrangements.  We used lilies in the top table arrangement that is pictured below.  The theme for this wedding was lemon yellow wedding flowers.

The other flowers in the arrangement are roses and cream gerberas.

There are some beautiful varieties of yellow calla lilies.  I particularly like the varieties that have their strong yellow colour set off against their black centers such as the variety ‘Black Magic’.


Tulips are great for both bouquets and venue arrangements.  They are very versatile and look great on their own or when used in combination with other flowers.

Daffodils are classically thought of as being yellow in colour, although there are many varieties including ones that are white in colour.  A great choice if you are having a Spring wedding.

Gerberas are available in a variety of bright colours including yellow.  If you want a subtle pastel shade I’m afraid you’re out of luck - Gerber daisies are for brides who want their yellow wedding flowers to be bright, vibrant and full of zing!
