Choosing Your Flowers

10 Apr

Along with everything else that must be considered for your wedding, the flowers you choose will play a vital role in your theme and presentation.  When choosing your flowers, there are a number of things to keep in mind: budget, which flowers support your theme and are overall pleasing to the eyes and nose, how well they will work with your gown, bridesmaids gowns, and venue, and that which is often overlooked, the meaning behind your flower choice.

Consider the season you are to be married in.  If you’re working on a budget, its better to use flowers that are in season as they will be more cost efficient.  If you want to use flowers that are out of season, they can generally be flown in, but the cost will greatly increase.

Most all flowers will have some sort of sentiment attached to them just as we discussed in our Meaning of Colors post. Below you’ll find a couple of our favorite links to give you an idea of what your flower choices are saying about your wedding and future.

Check out these two websites to give you a bit more help on choosing your flowers: The Knot & FlowerMeaning.org

One last helpful note, beware of weddings around Mother’s Day. Prices of flowers skyrocket… leaving you with the only choice to pay the high costs of shipping. Consider other weekends in May besides Mother’s Day and save that weekend for Mom.
