Wedding Flowers Tips for Your Wedding Day

The flowers that you choose for your wedding day will be one of the most important decisions that you make. After all, the flowers provide the color and overall feel to your wedding ceremony and reception. Take the time to select wedding flowers that will make your ceremony beautiful and that will complement the attire of your wedding party and overall color scheme.

When deciding on a florist, you should book one pretty quickly. Take your time to select a florist however you must be sure that you book at least 9 months to a year in advance if you can. You should also consider the time of year that you are getting married. This will affect the budget that you have set aside for your flowers. If you buy flowers that are out of season this will enhance the cost.

Decide on a color scheme when selecting your wedding flowers. The flowers should complement the wedding party attire and should go with the overall theme of your wedding. If you are having a beach wedding, perhaps you will go with a more exotic flower such as the orchid as well as more vibrant colored flowers. If you are having a formal indoor event, and the bridesmaid’s dresses are a darker color, perhaps you should go with a white or ivory rose. These are important things to think about when planning wedding ceremonies and receptions. Not sure where to start? You can always take pictures of your wedding dress, the wedding party attire, or pictures of flowers, or bouquets that you find online. Your florist should be able to help you come up with several options that will work for you.

Another thing to consider is the fragrance of your flowers. You want to be sure that your bouquet isn’t too fragrant so that you are not fighting sneezing and watery eyes as you walk down the aisle!
