Wedding Flowers

Choosing wedding flowers to suit the theme of your wedding and petals that match your colors isn't necessarily easy -- especially if your don't know a camellia from a carnation.  Here are some important do-and-don't secrets that can help brides make the best wedding flower choices for themselves, the entire bridal party, their decor and the vision of the entire event.  

Make sure your bouquet and your bridesmaids bouquets are proportional in size to yourself and your bridesmaids.  If you or your bridesmaids are petite in size, the last thing you want is to feel weighed down with a huge bouquet.  A good trick is to hold different size dinner plates in front of you to get a feel for what size bouquet looks and feels right.  

Be mindful of your gown's style and special details when choosing your bouquet.  You wouldn't want to hide beautiful details or overwhelm your beautiful gown or the bridesmaids dresses with a bouquet that is too large or overwhelming.  

Check with your wedding party and anyone else that will be in contact with your flowers (mothers & fathers of the bride and groom, etc.) to be certain there are no severe allergies that need to be considered.  The very last thing you want on your wedding day is a bridesmaid sneezing down the aisle or your mom breaking out in an itchy rash because she is allergic to the flowers you chose.  

Choose local, in-season flowers to save money.  Budget is a huge consideration when choosing your flowers.  You can save quite a bit of money by choosing flowers that are in-season and grown locally.  You will avoid the added expense that comes with imported and/or out-of-season blooms.  

Don't forget to consider the local climate and your venue when making your final choice for wedding flowers.  Some flowers start off beautiful, but may wilt during your warm outdoor wedding.  Be sure to consult your florist when making the floral choices.  She will be able to advise you on which flowers are best suited to the venue and climate in your area.  

Wedding flowers are not limited to just the bouquets and boutonnieres.  Wedding flowers may also include corsages for the mothers and other significant women, wedding centerpieces, and row markers.  Below you will find photos of some popular flowers pictured as bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages and centerpieces.  Several helpful links are included as well.
