How to Choose Wedding Flowers

Aug 17, 2007
Whether you are going for a simple ceremony or a lavish wedding with all the trimmings, you will need wedding flowers. Here are a few tips to help you pick the right flowers for your special day.

One of the first rules of choosing the right flowers for a wedding has to do with the type of wedding that will be taking place. More traditional weddings may include choices that either are dictated by the color scheme selected for the wedding or are considered conventional choices, such as roses. For a wedding with a less formal theme, you may find that bouquets of mixed flowers will be a lovely addition to the decor for the event. Home weddings often are beautiful when cut flowers from the garden are used, or collections of flowers from the gardens of loved ones. These can be arranged in a selection of vases, worked into garlands for doorways and banisters, or used as part of a central focus on the rostrum or other area where the couple, the officiating authority, and the other members of the wedding party gather. In fact, there is a sentiment that using flowers from the gardens of friends helps to make the wedding more intimate, whether ti takes place at a home, a house of worship, or a clubhouse.

Next, let your taste be your guide. After all, the wedding is supposed to be to the liking of the happy couple. If you want a particular type of flower used in the decor, then say so. Only the most obtuse of planners will deny your request to include the spider lilies or the gardenias and shoots of jasmine that you enjoy so much. The idea is to make sure that your big day is one that you enjoy now and in the future. Flowers that were to your taste will only add to the happy memories in years to come, while settling for something you did not really like will be a sore point even years after the fact.

Third, be reasonable when it comes to choosing flowers for the wedding. There may be some types of wedding flowers you want to include that simply are not in season. If that is the case, then look at what is currently in bloom and make your selections from those options.

Choosing wedding flowers can be a simple or complicated a task as you want to make it. By keeping in mind the type of wedding setting you want, considering your personal preferences, and also looking to see what is in season and blooming, you can select flowers that will be ideal for your wedding.
