Planning a wedding can be one of the most stressful times in a person’s life. There are many things to consider and a lot of decisions need to be made. What’s more is that every decision needs to be geared towards making this event perfect and memorable. One of the things that you need to put an enormous amount of thought into for your wedding day is choosing the right flowers. Now, wedding flowers don’t only pertain to the bridal and entourage bouquet. These also include the flowers that will be set up at the ceremony venue and the reception.
The first step you need to do when choosing the right flowers for your wedding is to decide on the theme you will be basing your big day on. Your theme can be pretty much anything you want it to be especially if you hire the right stylist for your event. You can choose to hold a Winter Wonderland themed wedding in the middle of summer or perhaps a Bohemian wedding right on the beach. It’s all about hiring the right people to make your dream wedding a reality.
Let’s say you choose to go with an autumn theme and your reception is in a hotel ballroom. The key to transforming an empty ballroom into one that has an autumn feel is to choose flowers that have hues along the shades of yellow, orange, and red. Don’t limit your selections to flowers alone. Make sure to include some dry foliage to really achieve that autumn feel. The next thing that you need to consider is how much your wedding budget will allow you to spend on flowers alone. Be ready to set aside at least 25% of your entire budget because flowers don’t come cheap especially if you choose to get premium ones that need to be ordered from abroad.
Choosing the flowers that will be used for your bridal bouquet is another story. Most brides choose flowers that hold special memories for them as a couple or those that have special meanings. Undeniably, roses are a staple for bridal bouquets but you can always choose other types of flowers if you aren’t too keen about them. Peonies are also a favorite among brides because of their simplistic beauty. However, make sure that you also take your wedding dress into consideration when choosing flowers for your bridal bouquet. It is highly advised that brides accentuate only one of the two things.
If her wedding dress is simple, she should focus on making her bridal bouquet the centerpiece of her ensemble. However, if the dress has all the frills and embellishments that make it hold its own, it is best to keep the bridal bouquet sweet and simple. That means sticking with just one color and choosing a simple arrangement for the flowers. The most important thing that you need to remember when planning your wedding is to have fun and not get too stressed out. This way, you would be able to enjoy the entire process from start to finish.
