Weddings are big celebrations that can be made even more memorable by beautiful flowers. Wedding flowers are one of the most important details one needs to attend to in planning for a wedding. The flowers will be used everywhere on the wedding—right from the bride’s bouquet, to the aisle decorations, to the table centerpieces, and the corsages.
For the wedding flowers, you have two options. You can hire a professional florist to handle all your flower needs or you can purchase directly from a wholesaler and do the arrangements yourself. The latter is only applicable if you have a creative streak and you have a team to help you out with your wedding flower arrangements. You can easily find a floral craft book and find the necessary tools you might need in plant shops near your area.
In choosing the wedding bouquet, you can opt for actual flowers. This is the usual choice of brides. However, if you want to be able to preserve your bridal bouquet, you can choose a fabric wedding bouquet. This is very popular nowadays and is a practical option for sentimentals. The budget also plays an important role in the choice of wedding flowers. Remember that locally sourced blooms are less costly than imported flowers. If you are on a tight budget, consider going local when it comes to the wedding flowers. So as not to waste the them, those that are used for the ceremony can easily be transferred to the reception venue. In addition, the bridesmaids’ bouquets can be used as centerpieces for the table of the newlyweds.
The theme of the wedding will also determine which flowers will look more appropriate. Beach weddings call for colorful tropical flowers and leis, while a conventional European church wedding will definitely be made more special with roses and lilies. Remember that these wedding flower tips are not written in stone. You can always decide to pick whatever blooms you think look best. After all it IS your wedding.
If you don’t have any idea as to how to go about the process of choosing the wedding flowers, have a meeting with your wedding coordinator.
