A Busy Bride's Easy Guide To Buying Wedding Flowers

Sep 4, 2008
When you consider all that you have to accomplish when you are planning a wedding, anything that will help you get things done more conveniently will be greatly appreciated. Buying flowers for your wedding is one of the most important decisions that must be made. There are a couple of things that you can do to make the job a little easier.

There are some big decisions that need to be made before you select the right flowers. The first thing you will need to consider is the amount of flowers that you need. There are bouquets for the bridesmaids, the bridal bouquet, the flowers for the church and reception and finally the boutonni?res for the ushers. Part of your decision making process will include the details of the budget. You should have allocated a portion of your wedding budget to the purchase of flowers. Look at the flowers that will be in your price range. Now that you have your budget and a list of the flowers that you need, you are ready to begin searching for flowers.

You can get some great ideas online for the flowers that you will select for your wedding. Consider the colors that you are using in your wedding theme. This should be where you start.

Think about the colors of your wedding and ways that your flowers can complement that. The shape of the flower is also important in a bouquet or arrangement. Pick out some flowers that are not often used in weddings. You can create a look that is a display of your style and taste. There are no rules about the flowers that must be used in your wedding. Choose flowers that make you happy.

Get a list of the flowers that you think you might like to use in your wedding and make some appointments with the local florists. When you go in to discuss your wedding, you will need to give them the date of your wedding and the ideas that you had for your flowers. They should be able to let you know if the flowers that you want are available and the cost of your arrangements. If you have chosen a rare and hard to come by flower, you might have to pay a little more for it.

If you are planning a floral centerpiece for the tables at the reception, you should consider purchasing them with the same florist. This will allow you to get a discount for the amount of flowers that you are ordering. Ask about this when you go to the florist for your order. Make sure that they are delivered in advance of the other flowers so there will be time to set them up on the tables.

There is a great deal of coordination involved in the planning of a wedding and the single act of the flowers showing up late can throw the delicate balance completely off.

Have all of your interviews before you decide on one of them. There could be one further down on the list that will offer you a better deal on your flowers. Or you could meet a truly gifted florist who will be able to create the arrangements of a lifetime. But if you don?t interview them all, you will never know. Check out the florist before you decide to place an order. Check references and make sure that they are dependable and deliver exactly what they say they will. Spending your afternoon among all of the beautiful flowers is a great stress reliever. Make sure that you choose the right florist, of course. But at the same time relax and enjoy the beauty.
