Wedding flowers are a huge part of your big day and they are also a rather sizeable part of the budget. The wedding flowers are going to take some thought and planning and will require careful consideration as they will need to blend beautifully with all of those bridesmaids dresses and your chosen style and theme. Knowing where to start and what how to begin with choosing wedding flowers may be a little of a minefield, yet read on.

Here at bridescollective.com we've got the foolproof wedding flower guide that will help you make those important wedding flower decisions – and get them right!

Choosing The Right Florist for your wedding flowers

When you begin the search for your wedding flower professional they will need to know three things:

Wedding Flower Budget
Only you can decide how much you're willing to splash on blooms, yet have it at hand before you discuss your wedding flowers and always remember, you may need to compromise.

Wedding Flower Style
Take ideas and photographs; know if you want just a single stem as your table piece and roses in your bouquet. Your florist will need a rough guide regarding your wedding flowers, yet take advice too!

Wedding Flower Numbers
And when we say wedding flower numbers – list it! How many tables, bridesmaids, grannies, aunties, groomsmen … you get the wedding flower idea! Once you've made a decision, you'll need to discuss the finer points with your wedding flower specialist.

You will invariably have a list of questions of your own regarding your wedding flowers; however, you'll need to make sure that the following are on your list:

Essential Wedding Flower Questions

  • Do you offer other types of decoration, other than wedding flowers, such as candles, indoor topiaries and trees etc.
  • Will my choice of wedding flowers be durable throughout the day? Remember to choose wisely, certain wedding flowers will be a lot more dependable than others; ask your wedding flower pro about wilting varieties.
  • Bouquet size and style. Your florist will know which wedding flowers work and which don't! To give you some wedding flower examples, overcharged bouquets can look dramatic and amazing yet they will detract from your dress, the stamens in lilies can mark and stain your dress... you're getting the picture! So you see, choosing your wedding flowers and choosing your right wedding flower professional is not as straightforward as you initially thought. Every florist is different and so are their ideas.

Listen to your wedding flower pro's suggestions, they may come up with something that's new and exciting that you'd never even considered. Make your wedding flowers into something special for that magical and fairytale day of your dreams.
