Less is More
Flowers should complement, not overtake, your wedding. Your dresses and décor should be the main feature with flowers adding a rich splash of colour to the effect. Think about quality over quantity.
Research, Research, Research
Check out as many bridal magazines and wedding flower websites as you can. Even gardening books can be helpful. You need to get a clear image of what you want and then convey it to your florist. It is important that your florist catches your vision. There are classic wedding flowers like roses, peony, orchids and lily of the valley, but don’t let tradition hem you in. Different flowers have different meanings too and you might like to consider these in your choices.
The All Important Budget
As any bride-to-be knows it is all too easy to blow the wedding budget. Set a budget for your flowers and stick to it. Make sure your florist is aware of what you want to spend on flowers. A professional florist will be careful to work within your limits. It may be best to check out prices online first. Try to set your budget before you visit the florist and get carried away by all those beautiful flowers. You can use expensive flowers even if you are on a tight budget – just use them sparingly. All flowers are beautiful and with a bit of creativity your florist will be able to work within your budget.
