When it comes to creating your perfect wedding, flowers should be considered a top priority purchase. However, choosing the perfect floral arrangements for your wedding can be a tricky process.

When the time comes to select your wedding flowers, there are several things that need to be considered. This guide is here to help you navigate the minefield that is wedding flowers and aid you in making the right choice for your big day.
How your flowers match up against your wedding largely comes down to whether or not you have a set colour scheme in place. If a theme is something you have opted for then finding flowers that suit shouldn’t be too difficult. When it comes to your wedding colour is key. However, it may pay dividends to be a little more daring in your colour choices, in order to help those table settings really pop.
When shopping for wedding flowers, most people will be left wondering whether or not the flowers they want are in season during the time of their wedding. This is a crucially important element to consider when choosing table displays, as the last thing you want is to have flowers look limp and lifeless come your wedding day. There are large selections of flowers that can be easily grown year round, however if you are set on using flowers that aren’t in season prepare to pay a premium.
When it comes to selecting flowers you should always put a budget in place. It also needs to be a budget that you’re confident that you can stick to. Flower shopping is something that can escalate in cost rapidly and wreak havoc upon your budget, so always try to maintain an element of restraint.

The Bouquet should be the most personal flower selection you make, as along with fitting in with the theme, season and budget, it should ultimately be a representation of yourself. It should be constructed out of your personal ideas and carry a sense of individuality. When choosing your wedding bridal bouquet remember that personality should win out, all the while bringing about a suitable compliment to your dress come the big day.
Even though Corsages aren’t commonplace in all modern weddings, they are a must should you be hosting something more traditional. The important female family members, along with both the bride and the groom, will wear corsages. They can cost upwards of £20 pounds each (with some costing over £100). They come is various forms so wedding shoppers can expect to be faced with a variety of choices, with some being more budget friendly than others.
Those on a tight budget would be best served going with something simple, yet colour coordinating. Maybe an alternative, such as single coloured rose, could also be considered a viable option. Those with more money to spare can attempt to locate corsages with a more complex look and design.
Your flower choices will be rendered pointless if you don’t have the correct florist handling them. Look for recommendations from friends or those who are going to be involved with your wedding, such as planners and photographers. The latter should be experienced enough in the industry to tell a good florist from an unreliable one.
Always make sure you see examples of a florists work before committing to them, as it is usually the best of indication of the quality of display they can produce. Before signing on with a set florist get to know their style (the last thing you need is an edgy looking display at a traditional wedding), so ask the florist how they would describe themselves, along with how they would look to address the appearance of your wedding. Following up from that try and get a grasp on how many jobs they have booked on the same day and week as your wedding.
