Flowers

Wedding flowers reflect the style and taste of the wedding couple and also accentuate the bride’s beauty, the bridal gown and the bridesmaid’s dresses. In addition to all this, flowers create a beautiful and vibrant atmosphere. The bride and bridesmaids’ gowns will be the center of focus at the wedding and everything, including the flowers, will need to match their style and color. So before choosing the wedding flowers, the wedding dress needs to be selected first.

If possible, pick out the wedding dresses and schedule a meeting with the florist six months prior to the wedding. Wedding flowers not only take up a large amount of the budget, but they also take a lot of time to plan properly. Wedding flowers can cost anywhere from a few hundreds of dollars to tens of thousands of dollars.


 



Flower power

Once the wedding attire has been selected, it is time to call a flower designer. These professionals specialize in designing everything from bouquets and stage decorations to decorating the wedding reception hall. Flower designers can make flower arrangements exactly as they are seen in magazines and photos. Many florists provide decorative plants, candles, candelabra, linen and transportation services. The florist can be called up to a year in advance and the requirements can be given. While selecting a florist or flower designer, get recommendations from friends and family. Browse the Internet and check the newspapers for advertisements. Show the floral consultant a few pictures of what you want to help him or her get a clear idea.

The main focus should be on the bridal bouquet, decorating the wedding venue as well as reception venue. Single flowers placed at each table give the entire place a wonderful and exquisite ambience. Flowers should be used to decorate the church and the pews and should be placed alongside the seats. Flowers should also be kept in vases at the altar and at the entrance. The flowers selected should be those that don’t wither and fade over the course of a day. Listen to the florists’ suggestions, as after all he or she is a professional and knows how to turn your desires into reality.


During the ceremony, each of the bridesmaids will need bouquets. The bride’s bouquet must be elaborately done up to stand out and to emphasize the wedding gown. The mothers and the grandmothers of the couple should have small corsages. The groom, the groomsmen, the fathers and grandfathers have boutonnieres.

Wedding flowers for all seasons

Most flowers are found all year round but seasonal flowers turn out to be cheaper and easier to find. Seasonal flowers also give a personal touch to the entire ceremony. The most popular varieties of flowers used at weddings are carnations, roses, gardenias, gladioli, stephanotis, snapdragons and ivy.

Wedding flowers available in spring are tulips, violets, peonies, pansies, ivy, larkspur, daffodils, lily of the valley, apple and cherry blossoms. These are the favorite choices for spring weddings.
In the summertime, daisies, roses, sunflowers, geraniums and dahlias are perfect. Summer is the flowering season and the variety of flowers increase with the onset of summer. Wedding arrangements in fall include a combination of flowers and foliage, giving everyone at the ceremony a spectacular view. In autumn, popular wedding flowers are roses, hydrangeas, asters, zinnias and chrysanthemums. Winter weddings feature classic poinsettias, orchids, jasmines and forget-me-nots.
