Preparing for your wedding is both exciting and stressful. While you have to plan for catering, facility rentals, and music and entertainment, nothing sets the ambiance of your ceremony and reception quite like your flower arrangements. An experienced florist will help you create the perfect look; but, in the meantime, there are a few factors you should keep in mind as you choose your color, type, and style. Here are a few do’s and don’ts to get you started.
Consult the Web
Deciding on flowers can be overwhelming. However, browsing ideas and examples from others’ weddings will give you a helpful starting point. Search the internet for inspiration, like on Pinterest®, and compile a few of your favorite themes. You can bring these with you to your florist to discuss your options.
Choose In-Season Flowers
Picking out-of-season blooms can make your flower arrangements incredibly expensive or impossible to create. Choose options that are available and in abundance around your wedding date to save money and make finding fresh and beautiful choices easier.
Allow Others to Decide for You
Your wedding day is a celebration of you and your special someone. As such, it should reflect your distinct personalities. Choose blooms you love rather than what others may insist is nicer or more traditional.
DIY Your Decorations
It may seem like creating your own flower bouquets is the budget-friendly option, but it may end up costing you in the long-run. It takes a great deal of time, and you may not be aware of all the details you may be missing and what can go wrong. Having professional assistance means peace of mind and a stress-free special day.
