Wedding flowers are a beautiful way to decorate your wedding ceremony and reception. As with the rest of your wedding details the wedding flowers and colours that you decide to choose will be key and play a big role in your day.
Not only will you need wedding flowers to decorate your ceremony and reception but you will need a stunning bouquet to hold as you walk down the aisle, your bridesmaids will also need a bouquet to carry and it is traditional to order a selection of button holes or boutonnières to distribute throughout your wedding party, including the groom.
You should plan to meet with a wedding florist approximately 6-8 months before your wedding to get advice and a view of the different types of flowers and blooms that will be available during the season in which you choose to tie the knot. Your wedding florist will be able to give you advice on wedding flowers depending on your wedding venue, and even the style of your wedding dress. Also, you will probably want your bridesmaids dresses and groom attire to have some sort of coordination with the colour of your wedding flowers, so choosing a colour scheme for your wedding day before you visit a florist is advisable. When it comes to choosing your bouquet go for something that you will feel comfortable holding as you walk down the aisle. A bouquet that is too big, or too small, may not suit the overall style of your wedding. Your wedding flowers can also be incorporated into decorating your wedding reception via your wedding tables buffet table and the table where your wedding cake will sit. And finally, be sure to incorporate wedding flowers into your budget as soon as you start to plan your big day.
