One of the common dilemma of every groom and bride is choosing what wedding flowers to have. With all the lineup of beautiful flowers available all year round, it would be impossible to narrow down your list of possible choices to 50 even. But there is no need to stress over the matter, because all you need is the right guidance to choose the perfect wedding flowers.
- Visualize what type of florist you need.
To avoid spending too much time meeting different florists in the city, it would help if you can first visualize what type of florist you would want to have. Would you prefer to have a florist who will do all the work? Or would you want them to just guide you while you do all the picking? These small things make up to making the first step on having the perfect wedding bouquet.
- Make sure you stay on the budget.
This is one of the common mistakes of every bride, either they spend much than they have to for the flowers or cut their budget in half. You wouldn’t want to waste your money on chances that these flowers might be perfect for the wedding, right? This is where your florist comes in handy because you can ask him how much flowers or what type of flowers can suit such budget. This way you won’t be needing to manually calculate each cost of flower.
- Envision what the wedding should look like with the flowers.
An effective way for you to easily pick out what flowers to have is to envision what you would want the wedding to look like with the flowers. Would you want the flowers to make the venue look regal? Classic? Will the flowers look beautiful for photography? It pays to be critical when it comes to this matters. When you’re done, have a chat with your florist and ask for his suggestions.
- Consider the venue of the reception.
You have to keep in mind that not all receptions would look good with the same set of flower arrangements. There are a lot of things needed to be considered. Such as the lightings, the ceiling, how large the place is and as well as the whole structure of the room. Some flowers grown on vines may or may not look well in low ceiling rooms and some colors of flowers would look pale when there will not be enough lighting in the place.
- Think about the wedding dress.
On top of everything you have to remember when choosing your wedding flowers, it is the wedding gown that you should never take for granted. It is now common to have colorful weddings and some also prefer colored wedding gowns so it is very important to match the shades of the flower petals to your wedding gown. Vibrant colored flowers may overwhelm your white wedding dress. So make sure that you keep the balance of colors checked by your florist.
