How To Choose Wedding Flowers

Blog

When it comes to your wedding day, you have a lot of planning to do. In order to make sure everything is perfect, you'll have to work out the details of every aspect of the decoration. One of the most important aspects of your wedding decor is flowers. A local florist can provide all the wedding flowers you need for a memorable ceremony and reception. Here are three tips you can use to help you choose your wedding flowers.

1. Decide on your color scheme.

You can find flowers in every shade of the rainbow, so you know you'll be able to purchase blooms in your ideal color. Before deciding on a type of color, figure out the color scheme of your wedding. Most couples have one or two theme colors which they use to help them make choices regarding the rest of the decor. Once you have your color scheme picked out, share it with your florist. They can help you choose flowers that will match the rest of your decorations.

2. Figure out how you'll use your flowers.

Flowers can feature in many different places during your wedding and reception. Many people like to have floral centerpieces on the dinner tables at the reception, and every bride will likely carry a bouquet. However, you'll need to decide if you want additional flowers to decorate for the ceremony itself. Many people get married in front of arches, which can be decorated with flowers. If you plan to have a flower girl scatter petals, you'll need to obtain those from your florist as well. Deciding how you want your flowers to feature can help you purchase the right amount.

3. Choose flowers that can last until your wedding day.

Ideally, you should pick up your flowers on the day of the wedding. This ensures that they'll be as fresh as possible, with no signs of wilting. If you don't have time to pick up your flowers, you may be able to have them delivered for an extra fee. If delivery isn't an option, then you have the choice to pick your flowers up ahead of time. If you decide to get your flowers in advance, make sure you buy flowers that are hardy enough to last. Daisies, carnations, and orchids are all tough flowers that won't wilt if you need to take them from the florist a day or two early.
