28 Orchid Wedding Centerpieces [Photos]

Orchid wedding centerpieces add romance and beauty to any wedding celebration. Ask any gardener and they will tell you that it takes patience (and love) to grow an orchid. 

Orchids are renowned for their beauty, but we also love them for their perseverance. Not only can these stunning flowers live up to 100 years, but they are also one of the oldest blooms in existence. Talk about longevity. 

No doubt about it, we cannot think of a more perfect flower to grace a wedding celebration. Orchids come in a variety of shapes and colors, making them an ideal choice — regardless of the theme or style of your celebration. 

Whether you are looking for an orchid wedding that’s simple and elegant or lavish and luxurious, the right designer and florist can transform your wedding venue into a dreamscape of love and beauty. 

These 28 orchid wedding centerpieces are only a small sample of the world of wedding inspiration awaiting you on PartySlate. Check out our larger idea gallery of wedding centerpieces for even more inspiring ideas and suggestions.
