About Nigella Wedding Flowers
Nigella wedding flowers are one of the most popular choices for brides-to-be who love the wildflower look. And it is not hard to see why! These beautiful blooms are perfect for creating a romantic and fun feel for your big day or event. Brides who love blue or white flowers can easily find what they love in Nigella flowers. If you are considering using Nigella in your DIY wedding flowers, then read on for everything you need to know about this gorgeous bloom.
What is Nigella?
Nigella is a genus of flowering plants that includes around 20 species. The most popular variety for weddings is Nigella damascena, which is also known as Love-in-a-mist, Devil in a Blue Dress or Persian Jewels. This variety of Nigella has delicate, fern-like foliage and pretty blooms that we offer in blue or white. The petals are surrounded by an outer shell of spiky bracts, which give the flower its distinctive look.
Nigella blooms are usually about 2.5 cm in diameter and have a lovely, sweet fragrance. They make beautiful wedding bouquets, table decorations and can even be used in wedding hair!
Nigella wedding flowers are native to Western Asia, but they are now grown all over the world. They are most commonly found in wedding bouquets in the summertime.
Nigella wedding flowers are perfect for creating a relaxed and romantic feel. They look beautiful on their own or as part of a mixed bouquet or flower crown.
When is Nigella in Season?
Nigella wedding flowers are pretty seasonal and only available from August to September. If you want the look of Nigella outside of these months, we recommend using Blue Thistle or Scabiosa.
How to Care for Nigella Wedding Flowers
Nigella wedding flowers are relatively easy to care for. They have a long vase life (meaning that they will last 7-10 days in a vase of water) and are not particularly fussy flowers. Simply cut the stems and place them in a clean vase or bucket of water. You can also use a floral food to prolong the life of your blooms.
When creating DIY wedding flowers with Nigella, then we recommend that you start designing with them two days before the big day. This will give the blooms time to open fully. You definitely want those blooms to be large and in charge by the time of your wedding or event! Please see our DIY Prep videos and further explanations here.

There are lots of different ways that you can use Nigella in your wedding flowers. One popular option is to create a loose, romantic bouquet using a mix of different colored blooms. Nigella flowers are beautiful for bridal and bridesmaid bouquets alike. Nigella also looks lovely in boutonnieres and corsages, or as part of a floral hair crown or garland.
If you are looking for something a little different, why not try using Nigella as table decorations? Place a few stems in small vases or bottles on each table, or create a larger arrangement to use as a centerpiece. Nigella also looks beautiful when used in wedding decorations, such as hanging from chandeliers or decorating the aisle.
Nigella wedding bouquets are typically made up of soft, romantic blooms in shades of white, pink, blue, and purple. They look beautiful when paired with other flowers like roses or lilies, or can be used on their own to create a more simple and understated look.
Nigella Flowers are also a wonderful choice for using in your hair if you want to keep with the wildflower theme and have flowers in your hair. These pretty blooms can be woven into loose styles or used as a statement hairpiece.
