There are a few things that make carnations very attractive for weddings... 
Let's hear em out--- First and foremost, they are easy on the pocket compared to other types of flowers. So if you are a bride on a budget they are a beautiful cost-cutting solution.  Second, they come in hundreds of natural vibrant colors: purple, pink, red, orange, cream or blue shades. Plus they can be artificially colored, as well! (so you can dye em'up as according your theme palette). And last but not least, they last looong... once carnations are in full bloom they can stay fresh and fragrant for up to 3 weeks! 

So brides-to-be, if you choose carnations for your wedding decor, we got a  Trick to make this budget-friendly flower look like a million bucks... Simple! Use these carnations in lush groupings of the SAME COLOR. 

With a little creativity and the right amount of style, sky is the limit with carnations. Take a look at these gorgeous carnation arrangements and now we can understand why they have returned with victory!

As you can see, carnations look fabulous as centerpieces. 
Also they can also be lovely incorporating in other aspects of your wedding. For example, you may use them in your bridal bouquet or for your bridesmaids' bouquets..
