An important step in coordinating your big day is working with the florist to plan your wedding flowers. Before you start your order, write down every type of floral arrangement and accessory you’ll need as well as how many of each. To make sure all the pieces you need will be perfectly arranged and delivered on time, place your order early and use these helpful tips and checklist.

Wedding Flower Checklist

1. Bouquets

The star of the show will be the bride’s bouquet, but you may also want additional, smaller arrangements for the bridesmaids as well as one to throw if you’d like to keep your bridal flowers.

2. Boutonnieres & Corsages

wedding flowersYou’ll need boutonnieres for the groom, groomsmen, ring bearer, officiant, and ushers as well as the fathers and grandfathers of the couple. You might want to get corsages for the mothers and grandmothers of both sides, too.

3. Ceremony Decorations

Depending on your venue, you may need arrangements for the entryway, chairs or pews, altar, and the aisle. Don’t forget petals for the guests to toss as you walk out of the ceremony. If you have a flower girl during the ceremony, you might consider giving her a basket of petals, floral crown, or a combination of the two.

4. Reception Decorations

Aside from centerpieces, consider other tables and bars that might need decoration. Also consider decorations for the couple’s chairs, the cake, and the getaway car as well as any special decorations you want, like a photo arch.

How to Choose Your Wedding Flowers

Once you have a list of the flower arrangements you want, meet with your florist to discuss what they have to offer. Know the names of specific flowers and arrangement styles you want and bring example photos. Consider your wedding colors and your theme or style as you make your selections. Be willing to adjust according to what’s in season at the time of your wedding.
