3 Tips For Choosing Your Wedding Flowers

Flowers are a beautiful and important part of a wedding. You'll probably want at least a few flowers, and if you love flowers, you may want to fill the venue with them. It's a good idea to find a wedding flower planner early so you have plenty of time to work together to choose the various arrangement designs you want. Here are some more tips for choosing wedding flowers.

1. Establish A Budget

Unless you have a huge wedding budget, you'll probably need to control costs. If you're working with a wedding planner, they can help you decide how much of your budget to devote to flowers. There's no wrong answer since it depends on how much you love flowers.

You may prefer to cut back on other things and go all out with the flowers. However, having a budget in mind keeps your spending from going out of control. Plus, knowing how much money you want to spend helps the flower planner decide on the type of flowers and arrangements to suggest.

2. Make A List Of Your Favorite Flowers

Your flower planner needs to know the type of flowers you prefer. You may want flowers that match your wedding colors or you may prefer specific flowers you happen to love no matter their color or size. You'll also want to think about availability. If you choose flowers in bloom during the time of your wedding, you'll spend less than if your flower planner has to search for the flowers and special order them to be shipped.

Once you know the type of flowers you want or just the flower colors, you and your flower planner can come up with ways to use them in the various arrangements you'll need for your wedding, including the bouquets and boutonnieres.

3. Collect Pictures Of Wedding Flowers You Like

You'll probably spend a lot of time before your wedding looking at pictures of favors, decorations, dresses, and other accessories. Be sure to look for pictures of wedding flowers too. If you're not too familiar with flowers, you may have no idea what to choose.

You may find flowers and arrangements you fall in love with when you find pictures online or in magazines. Show these to your flower planner so she understands the type of wedding flowers you love.

Choosing wedding flowers is an important part of planning for your big day. While you don't need a lot of flowers, choosing ones you like or that have meaning to you can make your day even more special.
