Colors: red, white, variegated
Style: high style, modern minimalist, classic traditional
What the Pros Say: "The long, linear stem of the amaryllis lends a sleek structural look," says Kara Hillier, weddings and galas design consultant for Chicago's Botanicals. "Cut shorter, these showy blooms add texture and dimension to lush, full arrangements."
Use For: bouquets, when cut short and massed together; singly (remember, they can have up to five blooms per stem), they're dramatic as table arrangements. Amaryllis are bulbs and lend themselves to being used as a whole plant; guests can take them home, and the bulbs will rebloom every year around the time of your anniversary!
Pair With: pine tips and seasonal berries, especially for a holiday wedding
