CHOOSING THE FLOWERS
Selecting the perfect wedding flower sounds like it would be easy
enough, but when it comes down to it wedding flowers are much more
important than most people would like to admit to, especially the bride.
Flowers may be a girl thing, but then again weddings are kind of a ‘girl
thing’ as well, so flowers are understandably important. There are so
many things to consider like what colors will look best, what will be in
season and what flowers will be appropriate and even people’s allergies
have to be taken into consideration as well.
Here are three of the more popular flower choices that can make it into
just about any wedding if all else fails:
If you are having a summer wedding and are looking to bring the epitome
of romance into your wedding ceremony by way of your flowers, roses are
the perfect fit for any such desire. They come in so many colors,
including red, white, yellow, pink, and more but even traditional red
roses would work at any summer wedding, bringing in such a dramatic and
deep color and a traditional more somber flower will certainly make
people sit up and take notice.
Carnations are often regarded as the cheap man’s wedding flower but this
is not always so. Carnations can be just as expensive as any other
wedding flower out there, and they do come in a variety of colors, as
they are easily dyed through the stems. However, carnations do not
always last as long as many of the other flowers that could be chosen
for a wedding, and they certainly lack the dramatic effect that some
people are looking for in regards to good wedding flowers.
Gardenia flowers have always been rather popular wedding flowers and for
two main reasons: they are rather plain in color and can be easily
accented with other pieces of foliage for a dramatic look and they emit
a heavy, musky aromatic scent from them that is perfect for wedding,
especially an outdoor wedding. Some people pay extra to have heavily
scented roses at their weddings, but hydrangea is naturally a very
aromatic scent, bringing a hint of romance and freshness into any
wedding. They come in a larger and smaller variety, but they are quite
fragile flowers so care must be taken with them at all times if they are
to look their v very best.
PART II: CHOOSING A FLORIST
Choosing a florist sounds easy enough, but if you care enough about your
wedding and how it turns out you will be able to see that you can’t just
choose any old florist. Not every florist is able to put together the
lovely bouquets that you have always dreamed of, and not every florist
has the ability to take the careful amount of care with your flowers as
is needed to make the most immaculate arrangements that are so necessary
in order to bring together any wedding.
The best way to find a good florist is to ask around. If you have been
to a wedding recently and you happened to enjoy the floral arrangements
there, ask the bride or groom for a recommendation and see how they
liked working with that florist. Friends who have already been through
their weddings know the drill, and they know how difficult it can be to
find a florist who is easy to work with and does what you want without
charging your future children’s’ college fund for some flowers that
won’t even live for a week. Make sure to start looking for your florist
early and book them well in advance, especially if you are planning a
summer wedding as this is the peak season.
If you need more guidance in your flower selection process, know that
your florist is going to cost you a bit more than you probably
anticipated. A great deal of their time is spent putting the
arrangements together and designing the various bouquets, centerpieces
and other floral arrangements for your wedding so it is only fair that
you should at least be able to put in some decision making work as far
as what type of flowers to pick. Bottom line: the more guidance you
need, the more your floral services are going to cost you for your
PART III: THE ART OF NOT GOING BROKE
As much as you will want to splurge on your wedding flowers and the
celebrity florist that Jennifer Aniston may or may not have used at her
wedding, consider your budget and be realistic about it. If the flowers
cost too much, they simply cost too much and if the florist is too
pricey you have to accept it as so. Don’t hurt your wedding budget on
flowers; no matter how important they may be in your eyes, your guests
may not remember the flowers when they remember your wedding but they
will remember a beautiful dress and bride, a handsome groom, great food
and amazing reception entertainment. Be wise where you put your wedding
dollars and how you do your budget, or it gets all too easy to splurge.
