Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Flowers

Nothing captures the beauty of weddings better than fresh, exquisitely arranged flowers. These tips will guide you through your journey to finding the perfect wedding flower arrangements on your big day!

Choose your Florist

Start the hunt for flowers on time. Talk to your florist to provide you with helpful advice and listen to their suggestions. To help you decide, you can narrow your choices to what seems to be nice according to your story, wedding inspiration and budget.

Discuss Finances Clearly

Set your budget, then look for inspiration – not vice versa.

Determining your budget is a good idea to keep some flowers on your “must-have” list and some on “wish-list”, in this way you’ll be able to save your time and money. All flowers are beautiful anyway; the important thing is the freshness and a price you can afford.

Wedding Theme

Think about your favorite color, look and feel (modern or vintage), the wedding season and your favorite music to make it easier to decide the wedding theme. Once you have the theme in mind, discuss it together with your florist. Your florists will then start to propose creative and inspiring wedding theme look which will amaze the guests and of course you!

The Wedding Dress

Choose your wedding dress before your flowers. The model and exact color of your dress has a tight connection with the flowers you want to have especially your wedding bouquet. The color of the flowers should complement the wedding dress, the wedding theme, and the clothing of the rest of the bridal party.

Don’t forget to bring the exact picture of your dress when consulting your florist.

Visual and Trend Setting Inspiration

Selecting flowers on your wedding is your own personal choice. Start by looking through bridal magazines, books, or websites that focus on flowers. Save magazine photos, collect files from websites for more inspiration. Pinterest, Instagram and other image gallery websites would be a great source. This will be helpful in visualizing the arrangements making it easier for the florist to come up with the perfect flower arrangements you want to have.

Choosing Flowers

It is also important to keep in mind the season of your wedding because some flowers on your “must-have” list may not be available on that season. It may also interest you to learn the different meanings of the flowers which could also help give a part on your decision-making.

Discuss together with your florist about these types of flower arrangements you should have on your wedding:

· Bridal Bouquet

· Bridesmaid Bouquets

· Register area floral arrangement

· A decorated bridal arch

· Boutonnieres and Corsages

· Tall Flower arrangements

Weddings will not be complete without floral arrangements. It gives life in every corner of the reception and especially in the wedding photo’s which last a lifetime after.
