Wedding flowers play a very important role in a couple’s special day, setting the tone and overall aesthetic of the ceremony and reception early on.
Selecting the perfect wedding flowers can be tricky, but if done right, it results in a magnificent vibe for the bride and groom, as well as for their beloved guests — and don’t forget about the timeless photos!
Trust your inner aesthetics
The most common mistake brides-to-be make while choosing their wedding floral decorations is relying heavily on trends or what is popular on Pinterest, sometimes ignoring their own preferences, color palette or even the season their wedding takes place.
Gathering inspiration and arranging boards is important, but sometimes you just need to listen to that voice inside your head, the one that can steer you in the right direction!
Trusting your aesthetics is the best way to make sure that you won’t regret any choices you make when it comes to flowers for your wedding, be it the decorations, flower arrangements or the bouquet itself.
Here are 3 ways to make sure you stay true to your aesthetics:
Think about your theme and color scheme
While deciding on your wedding’s floral decorations, it is important to have your theme and color scheme set. Note that a romantic countryside wedding may not go well with rose bouquets, and similarly, delicate wildflowers may not look good as centerpieces if your reception takes place in a high-end hotel.
Let the venue of your wedding inspire you, have a clear theme in mind and then scroll through those Instagram photos so you can find the ideal wedding flowers for you and your special day.
Useful tip: your favorite flowers should not necessarily be your wedding flowers. Take a look at the big picture and choose accordingly!
Plan ahead and keep the season in mind
The type of flowers you will eventually choose for your ceremony and reception will also depend on your actual wedding date. Don’t forget that different types of flowers may become harder to get and, consequently, more expensive depending on the season.
Not only are seasonal flowers cheaper, but they are also of higher quality and look better, too!
Be mindful while choosing your wedding flowers and confirm with your florist in advance so you won’t have to go over your budget.
And speaking of your florist, here’s the last tip: Trust them!
If you are still gathering ideas and don’t have a very clear picture of your floral decorations, or if you’ve gathered too many of them and need help deciding on your wedding flowers, your florist is the key.
Be clear about your preferences, but also be flexible and adapt to their recommendations if needed. Show them your inspiration boards with wedding flowers and images you’ve saved, so they can fully understand you.
By researching the work of the florists you’re considering, you’ll be able to select the one that is closer to your preferences and you feel most comfortable relying on — the one that will reflect your inner style and understand your aesthetics.
