The colors that vibrate to your wedding vows, and surround the after party. The petals that either stand erect or flow down to the table’s edge. How to decide on what flowers to have at your wedding?
Flowers have many issues when it comes to the final decision. Fake or real ones? How much should you spend on them? How about half fake and half are actually candy? Choosing flowers can start off as a simple task that can grow frustrating fast. Here are a few tips to ease that wedding stress.
Plan how Much to Spend Before you Look
Once you start perusing catalogs and falling in love with the calla lily you will be lost to flower heaven. Set out a budget beforehand, (usually flowers are 8% of the wedding cost). Instead of spending your budget on flowers there’s an option to choose greenery and deck the halls with seedy eucalyptus or tree ferns.
Pinterest is the accumulation of visual ideas. Use its wisdom like Wikipedia is going out of style. It can give you ideas on what bouquets you love and don’t love. For a breakdown of flowers check out this Mod Wedding page.
Leave it up to the Florist
If you can find the right florist then they can guide you on which flowers to choose. They can also make the bouquets and learn which flowers you want that you didn’t even know you wanted.
Match the Season
If you’re holding a winter wedding then you can add hypericum berries to the bouquet. Let the changing of weather dictate your wedding style or even do a playful contrast if that’s your personality.
Choose a Venue with Natural Beauty
You can always bring beauty into a venue, or choose one that already has flowers bursting from its grounds. Keep the venue in mind as you decide on floral arrangements.
