The flowers you have for your wedding should complement everything in your wedding. Its colors should balance not just your dress. Your wedding flowers should work with the colors of the décor of your reception venue and the ceremony locale.
Unless you have the skills of a professional florist, you’ll want to hire one. Your wedding florist should be skilled with wedding arrangements, and you won’t find one that isn’t. Make sure your florist can deliver, set up, and remove the arrangements at the end of your wedding and reception. Even though many reception halls can suggest a florist to you, you should do your own research. Ask for references, and be sure to look them up yourself, including online reviews. It may be tempted to use a florist without check references, but this would be irresponsible on your part.
Your wedding flowers should harmonize with the season, your wedding dress, and your color scheme. Your wedding flowers should also go with your wedding party’s attire, as well as the style and theme of your wedding. Before you speak with a florist, make a list of wedding flowers you are considering. It will help focus your meetings and help you stay within your wedding budget.
When you organize your wedding flower arrangements with your florist, he or she should be able to suggest wedding arrangements based on the size and location of your wedding. Ask to see pictures of previous wedding arrangements. Don’t agree to see generic photos of flower arrangements. You will want to see the actual work of the florist. This gives you a real feel for their creative and unique qualities and what you can expect to see on your wedding day.
It is even better if you meet with your potential wedding florists with pictures and magazine pictures of some ideas of what you are looking for. You shouldn’t just take the florist’s advice on everything. You should be part of the decision-making process.
