Your bridal bouquet is a once in a lifetime accessory. Choosing your flowers is one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning. But it’s not as simple as picking your favorite flowers and requesting them in your wedding colors.If you don’t know where to begin, the task of choosing your wedding flowers might feel more daunting than sweet. Get started with these tips.
EMBRACE YOUR WEDDING SEASON
Think about the types of flowers that are normally seen around the time of year when you’re getting married, for example, tulips and peonies in the spring, or dahlias and mums in the fall. There’s no rule that says you can only use flowers if they’re in season, but out-of-season blooms might be difficult for your florist to find and will generally mean a higher price tag for you in the end.
GATHER WEDDING INSPIRATION FOR YOUR FLOWERS EARLY
Your wedding flowers allow you to get creative with your favorite colors and textures. Ensuring you have a rough starting idea of what you want is so important. Pinterest and Instagram will be your best friend during this decision making process. Save yourself the research and check out our choice of wedding flowers that we absolutely love! You might find exactly what you have been dreaming of! Ensure you bring what you find to your florist to clearly portray your vision.
START WITH YOUR BOUQUET
Start your planning journey with your bouquet or the bridesmaid’s bouquets and work from there. Deciding on the less overwhelming blooms early and how big of a role you want flowers to play in your wedding is really helpful. You may be planning a minimalistic day, in which case your bouquet and the bridesmaid’s flowers will be all that you want. In comparison, for some brides, statement floral arrangements are the main feature of the styling. Knowing the bouquet that you’re after will then inspire the color and textures that you want, which will then seamlessly play out into the rest of the styling.
YOUR WEDDING THEME AND COLOR SCHEME
A great way to gather inspiration for your wedding flowers is pairing them with the theme of your wedding. A beach wedding may inspire traditional white blooms paired with loose and relaxed palm leaves. A bohemian wedding is your chance to be creative and modern, think wildflowers, peonies and proteas surrounded with foliage, rosemary and olive branches and earthy colors for a rustic and messy feel. If a traditional celebration is more your taste, you can’t get wrong with classic roses.
