Choosing wedding flowers can be a fun and exciting part of the wedding planning process, but it can also be overwhelming with so many options to choose from. Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect wedding flowers for your big day:
Consider Your Wedding Theme: Think about the overall look and feel you want for your wedding. Are you going for a romantic, rustic, or modern vibe? Choose flowers that match your theme and colour palette.
Think About the Season: Choose flowers that are in season for your wedding. Not only will they be more affordable, but they will also be fresher and easier to find.
Consult with a Florist: Schedule a consultation with a florist who can help you choose flowers that match your vision and budget. They can also suggest alternative flowers that look similar to more expensive blooms.
Be Open to Options: If you have your heart set on a particular flower but it’s out of season or too expensive, consider using it sparingly and complementing it with other flowers that have a similar look or colour.
Consider the Venue: Think about the location of your wedding and how the flowers will fit in. For example, if your ceremony is in a garden, you may not need as many flowers as you would in a ballroom.
Think About the Bouquets: Consider the type of bouquet you want for yourself and your bridesmaids. Different styles of bouquets may require different types of flowers.
Don’t Forget About the Centrepieces: The centrepieces are a key part of the reception decor. Choose flowers that complement the overall look and feel of your wedding. But make sure they’re either really low down or elevated so guests can see and speak to each other on the other side of the table.
- Consider foraging for your own wildflowers and greenery to make your own blooms. Not your thing? Maybe ask a creative friend to do this as a wedding gift for you.
- Artificial flowers: the quality is much better than it used to be. There are even options to have paper origami style flowers that sit on sticks or hang from strings.
Start with Your Vision: Before you start shopping for decor, decide on the overall look and feel you want for your wedding. Create a mood board or Pinterest board to help you visualise your vision and share it with your suppliers.
Consider Your Venue: The venue is one of the biggest factors in choosing your wedding decor. Consider the colours, lighting, and layout of the space when choosing your decor.
Choose a Colour Palette: Choose a colour palette that reflects your style and wedding theme. Stick to a few colours and incorporate them throughout your decor for a cohesive look.
Mix High and Low Elements: Mix high and low elements in your decor to create visual interest. Use tall centrepieces on some tables and low arrangements on others.
Add Personal Touches: Add personal touches to your wedding decor to make it unique to you and your partner. Display photos or other meaningful items that represent your relationship.
Think Outside the Box: Don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to wedding decor. Consider non-traditional items like potted plants, lanterns, or vintage items to add interest to your decor.
Get Creative with Lighting: Lighting can have a big impact on the ambiance of your wedding. Consider using string lights, candles, or uplighting to create a romantic atmosphere.
