Spring is the best season for weddings… Why? Because it is the season for beautiful flowers and, also, one of the most beautiful times of the year.
With a wider range of flowers blooming and becoming more affordable you can make sure that you brighten up your wedding day with exquisite floral arrangements.
While helping my sister-in- law plan her wedding, I learned a few lessons about wedding flowers that I’d like to share with you.
1. Hire a Florist
You are not a skilled florist; therefore, you should definitely not design your own floral arrangements for your special day. Hire a local floral designer who will work with you to ensure you are extremely happy with your floral arrangements and décor.
2. Budget for Flowers
Don’t forget to budget for wedding flowers. If you want a beautiful arrangement, let your florist know how much money she has to work with so that she can provide the best flower arrangements to suit your taste and budget.
3. Don’t Stick to One Colour
Embrace the beautiful spring flowers. Use flowers to complement instead of ‘exact match’ your other wedding décor.
4. Choose Quality Over Quantity
Although big arrangements may make you feel as though you are receiving value for money, this is not necessarily the case. One gorgeous orchid, while pricey, has a weighted beauty that cheaper flowers cannot measure up to. This applies to table flowers, bridal bouquet and other arrangements.
5. Trust Your Florist
Even though you may have a very specific idea in mind for your wedding flowers, do not overlook your florist’s suggestions and ideas. They take many factors into account when coming up with creative ideas for your wedding flowers, including your budget and the availability of specific flowers. Professional florists have catered for many functions and can tell you exactly why they make certain decisions and suggestions, so don’t be afraid to take their advice.
