Flowers are one fun aspect of wedding planning! There are many areas to consider when choosing flowers for your special day. Some things to keep in mind include the following: season of desired flowers, floral ordering time to keep costs down, strongly scented flowers that may be unpleasant or uncomfortable for guests. Bring your florist paint chips of the color scheme you imagine. This will help your florist recommend flowers and different arrangements. Below there is a checklist to ensure no corner is left unmarked!
Plan to reuse flowers from your wedding ceremony at your reception. One of my favorite ways to reuse bridal bouquets at the reception is at the head table. Place bouquets flat with the flowers facing guests and alternate bouquets between votive candles.
Consider matching your bouquet flowers to your wedding dress. Think what flowers will best compliment your wedding dress & photograph well.
