When choosing wedding flowers, here are some tips to guide you:

Do your Flower Homework

Choosing wedding flowers is not as simple as picking your favorite flowers and requesting them in your wedding colors. You must determine what you like and how you want them to look like. Also, it is important to have a solid understanding of the names of flowers you like and floral terms such as kinds of bouquets, arrangements, and other details. Also, find out when your favorite flowers are in season in your area.

Get Some Inspiration

Pinterest can provide you with lots of inspiration photos. Save all the photos you like and make a note of what especially draws you to every photo. This will help you communicate your vision and style to the florist more effectively.

Think about your Wedding Them and Venue Style

If the venue has natural blooms around it, there is no need to overwhelm it with too many floral arrangements. But, if there is none, having great flower details can make the place bright and charming. Also, make sure your chosen matches your wedding theme.

Get Recommendations

You can get recommendations from other brides, review websites, or bridal magazines. If you have a wedding planner, they can provide you with instructions and suggestions.  They tend to have connections and collaborate with many vendors. After getting recommendations, look for every florist website and check if their style matches your overall vision.

Create a Budget

While it is not easy to guess the cost of your desired flowers, you can set a floral budget that makes sense within your overall wedding budget. By having a budget, your florist can recommend flowers and styles within your price range. You don’t want to waste your time or your florist’s, so make sure to be upfront with how much you can afford. Generally, experts say that around 10% of the total wedding cost will go to flowers and décor.
