Are you planning a wedding and struggling with the task of ordering flowers for the big day? You are not alone! The concept of ordering flowers seems so simple, but there are so many things to take into consideration. Keep reading for more information on the do’s and don’ts of wedding flowers.
Do Be Realistic About Your Budget
One of the biggest obstacles that couples encounter when planning their floral arrangements is not taking into account their budget. Flowers can be very expensive, so it is always a good idea to set a realistic budget and inform your florist about it upfront, so they can work with you to meet it.
Don’t Choose Out Of Season Blooms If Possible
Speaking of budget, choosing out-of-season blooms is a surefire way to increase the cost of your wedding flowers. From the start, tell your florist when your wedding is and ask for a list of flowers that are in season during that time. Not only will this keep the cost down, but it helps you avoid last-minute replacements if your florist cannot source the out-of-season bloom.
Do Look Online For Inspiration And Have An Open Dialogue With Your Florist
Before you go to your florist, do some research online. Have some different images handy to show your florist for inspiration. You should also have an open dialogue from the start about your budget, colors, and the general aesthetic that you are looking for. For example, sunflowers are great for summer weddings with a rustic theme, but might not be the best choice for a winter wedding with a romantic aesthetic. Be open and honest with your florist, and they will work with you to design the perfect flowers for your wedding.
Don’t DIY Your Wedding Flowers
It is very enticing to consider doing your flowers yourself to save money, but we advise against this. You can only make the arrangements a day or so in advance, and this is typically when other aspects of the wedding are heating up. Do yourself a favor and hire a florist to handle this so you can focus on the other aspects of your wedding and lower your stress level.
