Consider The Many Flower Varieties Out There

The types and varieties of wedding floral arrangements are virtually endless, and yet so many brides come in to their wedding consultation knowing they positively want (or need!) roses and ranunculus in their bridal bouquet.

Roses, hydrangeas, carnations, different varieties of lilies and other flowers are available year round. Though some types of flowers are only available in-season. You might have a firm idea of what is right for your dream wedding, or you might be open to discussion bouquet designs and other ideas for wedding styles and themes. It’s always a good idea to talk it out.

Be Clear On Your Wedding Flowers Budget

You want to be absolutely clear on your flowers budget from the beginning. That means getting everybody involved, especially your partner! Getting people on the same page will prevent overspending and unpleasant budget surprises later on.

Be upfront with your wedding florist, too. Ask for a wedding flowers pricing guide and strategies for figuring out how much to spend on your wedding flowers. Dividing up your wedding flowers is one way to keep track of spending. If you consider personal flowers, there’s not just your bridal bouquet, but also the bridesmaid bouquets, buttonholes, boutonnieres and corsages for other members of the wedding party.

This way everyone knows what kinds of blooms (and at what prices) you’re looking at.

Ask Your Florist About Colour And Texture Of Your Bridal Bouquet

Selecting the colour and texture of your bouquet, or bridesmaid bouquets, is not a science. Nothing looks exactly like it shows up in the online brochure or wedding catalogue. Keep in mind that many of these have been colour cropped and adjusted to be ‘perfect.’

But by discussing colour and texture with your florist you can become more knowledgeable of colour pairings, two-tone and monochromatic colour schemes for weddings, and ways you might incorporate fun foliage and greenery. For example, white and peach peonies, lisianthus, white roses, sweet peas and woody branches create a wonderful colour balance if you are looking for a wild, natural and yet softer tone in your winter bouquet.

And you will be able to gauge expectations when you see your wedding photos!

See Where You Can Double-down On Stems

Keeping track of the number of flowers you’ve purchased and the amount of flowers in each bouquet helps you do two things. One, it’s another way for you to budget your wedding flowers–or at least keep a running tab in your mind. And two, if you know you have two or three varieties of flowers in your bridal bouquet, for example, you might be able to repurpose them in other kinds of wedding displays, like table arrangements, centrepieces and runners.
