Get Those Beautiful Wedding Flowers
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just choose your favorite flowers and have them delivered in bouquets and centerpieces for your wedding? Actually, doing your homework beforehand and including flowers in your wedding planning helps make sure you’re getting the blooms and their look just right for the big day. Here are some tips to help you have the perfect wedding flowers:
Do a little research
It’s not enough to know what type of flower you want — you need to understand when they naturally bloom, to avoid exorbitant costs. You should also take time to know about basic flower arrangement and bouquet styles, to understand your florist well when they begin talking about it.
Go native if you can
If you can base your flower selection on blooms in season at your wedding time, along with which ones are available naturally in your wedding destination, then you can shave a significant chunk from your flower budget. And make no mistake — flowers can be really expensive and can account for 10% of all expenses!
Because of the wide variety of blooms available, your florist may be able to give you an alternative if the look you’re originally going for ends up blowing the budget. Ask them about flowers with a similar look and feel!
It’s not just the flowers
Couples often order flowers only to be put in vases or bunched up into bouquets. Instead of just focusing on the blooms, however, you might also want to innovate on the ways you use them. Using different vessels instead of vases or using a different bouquet style than normal lets you mix things up nicely.
Add some greenery, too
There is no better complement for flowers than foliage, and using this wisely can drastically improve even the most basic of arrangements. Check with your florist and let them work their magic.
Then again, the quality of your florist plays a huge role in the success of your wedding’s flower power, so don’t forget to shop around and ask for recommendations. Don’t be afraid to ask for references as well. Done right, these blooms can make for a powerful statement!
