Choosing the Right Flowers for Your Wedding

Flowers play an essential role in setting the ambience and theme of the wedding: the wedding bouquet, your bridemaid's bouquets and corsages, reception centerpieces and hall decorations. The type of flower, its colour, and even its floral scent will all matter in creating the right kind of effect you desire in your wedding. So while it may appear as just another decision to make in your wedding planning, it is essential that you give it some thought before making your flower choices. Choosing the right flowers for your wedding can be a daunting task, if you are like most bride-to-be's, who has a basic knowledge of flowers. It can seem overwhelming in the beginning. But with a little research, you will be armed with the necessary knowledge to help you pick the right flowers for your perfect wedding. The following article will provide you with tips on picking the right flowers based on which season your wedding will be held, that is, during the summer, fall, winter or spring. Read through these tips gathered from experts in the florist field. And if you have questions not answered here, please email us.

Sometimes, closing your eyes and envisioning the perfect look to your wedding will help you decide on what type of wedding you desire. Is is a formal or casual wedding that you want? An elegant, elaborate or simple wedding? What are the colors you like most: bold, pastels or neutral? Are you a traditionalist who adores roses or lilies, or do you favor a more contemporary floral theme involving grasses, fruits and herbs?

Seasonal Flowers

It is wise to go with the season when it comes to picking your wedding flowers. You should choose wedding flowers that bloom naturally during the time of your wedding. Although most floral varieties are available all year, seasonal flowers will be readily available, and less expensive. Often seasonal flowers are more durable, and less likely to wilt.
