Selecting the Best Flowers for Your Wedding
The flowers and arrangement for your wedding is an essential decision that the bride and groom must make. The explanation for this is that the flowers compliments and extenuates your wedding to make it that much more special. Here are a few tips to assist you consider when deciding on the flowers and arrangements you may choose.
Don’t just walk into one florist and like what you see. Visit at least three different florists. Each one will have their own technique and there could be one florist you like more than the others. Look around each florist shop, is it organized and well planned, or is there a disorganized feel to it? This might be a good sign on how this particular florist runs their business. Also, make sure the florist you speak with will be the one creating the arrangements and setting up your wedding.
The first question should be, “how many weddings have your done personally?” If the florist you like has planned a fair amount of weddings, then they should have pictures of past wedding arrangements. Most businesses are proud of their past achievements and want to show prospective clients what great work they have done for past weddings.
Season determines the Flower
Depending on what season your wedding is being held, the florist you choose to do your wedding should have the perfect suggestions of what flower arrangements set around the room would look best in line with the season your wedding is scheduled.
Simple makes a big statement
The more elaborate the centerpieces are for each table at your wedding raises the price of your florist bill. Less labor intensive centerpieces will keep the cost down and you really don’t need every window, picture frame, railings (if there are any), walkways and door way entrances decorated with flowers, do you? Most of these decorations are labor intensive and will really raise the bill.
Picking the perfect colors to suit your wedding style is also very important. Bright colors while are beautiful and showy, however, you don’t want your guest noticing the wedding flowers more than you. If you bring a swatch of fabric of the bridesmaid dress to your florist will give him/her recommended of where to start.
Size does matter
As it pertains to weddings, bigger is not always better. You don’t want your wedding bouquets to be too big and bulky to carry. Choosing smaller, delicate wedding bouquets are much better.
The right scent
You don’t want your wedding bouquet and arrangements to smell too strong. The over powering fragrance of flowers in the room may give your guest the wrong impression, (like being at a funeral for example), and many people suffer from allergies. You wouldn’t want your guest or wedding party sneezing and feeling miserable during the wedding or wedding reception so keep really fragrant flowers like gardenias, lilacs and lilies down to a minimum.
