There are flowers in all shapes, sizes, and colors, for simple to luxury wedding events.
So why wedding reception flowers matter?
Your wedding day is the most important day of your life. It is one of the most important life decisions you will make and your wedding day is the celebration of that most important decision. And since flowers are a key part of the tone of your special occasion, they are very important.
Another significant element of your wedding, are the photographs and the video. You will relive every moment of that day through them, you’ll share your story with your kids through them, you will decorate your home with them and they will be a reminder of the beginning of your new life. Guess what! The flower arrangement will actually make your photos! Flowers will be in every image of you and your partner, in ceremony shots, bridesmaid pictures, reception photos even in your wedding video.
Not many people appreciate wedding flowers for their fragrance. While people choose flowers for their beauty, their freshness can take your reception to the next level. Your guests will feel more comfortable surrounded by nice aromas and they will bound the fragrance with your special day.
And most importantly, people love flowers! They represent joy, happiness, and celebration. Your guests will get excited with beautiful floral decorations, your photographer will surely be inspired by them and will take artistic photos and your bridesmaids will be ecstatic when their bouquets arrive. You get the point, your decision about the wedding reception flowers will be applauded.
Flowers will also bridge your wedding colors. You can’t expect the linens and bridesmaid dresses to bring together your wedding colors. Flowers will do that in the most elegant way. It doesn’t matter if you chose 5 colors for your wedding, with the proper floral arrangements, the design will come across much more sophisticated, mature and natural.
How to choose your wedding reception flowers
Now that we covered the flowers’ importance on your wedding day, let’s take a look at how to choose them.
Before anything else, you should decide how much you can spend on flowers. A floral decoration can get very pricey or very budget-friendly. In every case, you should know your limit and look for inspiration within it. This will also be of great help to your florist.
After you decide your budget it’s time to decide your wedding theme. Is it romantic, bohemian, classic? Location plays an important role; a winter ballroom and a beachfront require different wedding themes. For every wedding style, there is a proper floral arrangement.
When you know your theme, you need to decide the wedding colors. The time of the year and what flowers will be in bloom on your wedding date are important factors. This will affect your decoration and budget.
The next step is to decide where you want your flowers to be. Your and your bridesmaids’ bouquets, a ceremony centerpiece, pedals at the aisle, and the reception centerpieces are the most common choice.
The most important step is to find the florist who is right for you. Don’t leave it for the last moment or you won’t be able to hire the one you want. Research and book your florist ahead of time. This not only will ensure you get the professional you want but it will also give you time to plan for the optimum floral result.
