Wedding Flowers – Pollen Allergies

You’ve always dreamed of the perfect wedding, with flowers everywhere, but you have allergies. What can you do?

Flowers are definitely a difference maker for your wedding. You probably have a flower you think would be gorgeous for your reception, but remember if you or your guests have pollen allergies you may be hearing sneezing instead of laughter and joy.

Because your wedding flowers will most likely be everywhere (in bouquets, centerpieces, etc.) you’ll need to be careful.

You may think your only option is to use fake flowers – think again. As long as you choose the right type of flower, you’re on your way to preventing allergies (or at least minimizing them).


Use flowers that produce less pollen and/or are non fragrant.  Spray roses are a good example – they come in a variety of colors, produce a light scent and are unlikely to release pollen into the air. The lists below will help you decide which flowers are good choices, and which you should avoid.

Note: If you are unsure how to make bouquets and other decorations from the flowers you select, ask your floral expert or check out DIY videos.

Try these:
Hybrid tea roses 

Avoid these:
Oriental lilies
Mini asters
Tree blossoms (orange, almond and cherry)

  1. Hiya, I’m really glad I’ve found this info. Today bloggers publish only about gossips and internet and this is actually frustrating. A good website with interesting content, that is what I need. Thanks for keeping this web-site, I’ll be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can’t find it.

  2. You’ll find several allergenic fungi that trigger allergic reactions in individuals. The Alternaria, Aspergillus, and Cephalosporium are commonly identified fungi that fall under the Fungi Imperfecti group. These, specifically the Alternaria and Caldosporium are far more prevalent outdoors than indoors. They’re frequent throughout the autumn season, but occasionally they appear within the spring and summer. Indoors, Aspergillus and Penicillium are comparatively persistent throughout the year with small effect from environmental factors.
