Wedding Flower Tips to Consider for Your Big Day

  •  Gather ideas: Collect pictures of bouquets and centerpieces from the Internet or from bridal magazines and choose your color scheme, if you haven’t done so already. Select 3 or 4 florists using this website and meet with them to discuss your preferences. Seek their guidance and advice, and tell them what you have in mind.

 

Wedding Flower Tips

 

  • List your requirements: Decide how many flower arrangements you need in total and where you need them. Typically you will need bouquets for the bride, bridesmaids and flower girls, the church (for Christian weddings); centerpieces at the reception, the seating area for the bride and groom at the reception; the car and other smaller requirements. Use a common theme across all your flower arrangements.
  • Set your Budget: Decide how much you can afford to spend on flowers and stick to it. Select your florist accordingly. Make sure you put everything you agreed on in writing.
