A florist that is a perfect match for you should be able to suggest many unusual and beautiful designs for your wedding bouquet and arrangements while offering a price within your budget
Six months is not too early to select your florist, especially if you’re planning an elaborate wedding.
These tips can help with your floral decisions
- Selecting your gown, the bridesmaids’ dresses and overall color theme is important before visiting a florist. Take fabric swatches and descriptions (pictures are better) of your selected wedding apparel.
- The bridal bouquet is usually composed of all white flowers but, if you would prefer, additions of any colorful blossoms is certainly appropriate.
- The groom’s boutonniere, worn on his left lapel, is usually a spray of the same type of blossoms used in your wedding bouquet. The grooms men and ushers wear boutonnieres different than the groom.
- If you use silk flowers they are also a beautiful alternative to fresh flowers.
- Most manufacturers produce most any type of blossom or plant in fiber form. These exquisite imitators bloom forever.
- A number of other floral pieces will be needed for your wedding, including displays for the altar, centerpieces, arrangements for reception tables, sprays for candelabra, corsages for the assistants with various reception duties, and flowers for special guests.
- Lean on the expertise of your florist.
