Top Tips for Choosing Wedding Flowers, Hamden, Connecticut

Wedding flowers are an alluring part of any ceremony, from the bride’s bouquet to decorative arrangements aligning tables and gifts. Choosing the ideal flower arrangements for your special day can be difficult, however. With so many gorgeous options, how do you know which to choose?

As Hamden, CT’s premier florist for more than 30 years, the experts at Devine Orchid Florist have created extraordinary flower arrangements to celebrate an array of special memories, including birthdays and anniversaries. They share their top four tips for choosing your perfect wedding flowers:

  • wedding flowersFlower Type: The first and most important choice you should make is flower type. Aim for a seasonal selection, but don’t limit yourself. If you’re dying to have out-of-season orchids as part of your bouquet, give them a place. Look into the meaning behind your choice of flower as well; you might be surprised. 
  • Colors: Choices range from light pastels to bright blossoms, so keep the rest of the decor in mind—you want flower arrangements to match. Your bridesmaid’s dresses should also be a consideration, as everything should coordinate well.
  • Stylish Stems: While wedding flowers are your main statement during the ceremony, you’d be surprised at the statement a florist can make with stems. They can be simple, stylish, or wrapped in ribbon. There are endless options, so after choosing the flowers themselves, speak with your florist about how you can style those stems.
  • Beautiful Bouquets: Bouquets can be petite, tied-together pieces or huge centerpieces. When choosing your bouquet, consider your height and style of gown—you wouldn’t want the bouquet to overwhelm you. This generally means smaller bouquets for smaller women, but if your dress is full and fancy, you might want a fuller bouquet as well. No matter what you choose, it should all flow together flawlessly.
