Your chosen wedding flowers are the perfect finishing touch to your special day, and can take some planning and forethought to arrange. Follow these expert tips to ensure your wedding flower arrangement goes without a hitch!
Decide on your budget
The first step to base all your decisions off is your budget. This will inform what types of flowers you can use in your centrepieces, decor and bouquets, so make sure you decide on your budget ahead of time with your partner. As a rough guide, most couples spend 8% of their wedding budget on flowers. Got a tight budget? Adding greenery is a wonderful way to get the same visual impact for a fraction of the price.
There’s plenty of stunning inspiration online to help you determine which floral arrangements you love. Pinterest is the go-to way of collecting pictorial inspiration, focusing on the colour, shape, texture and style of flowers you like. Asking your friends and family for what flowers they had at their wedding can also help to shape your vision. All the images and inspiration you compile will allow you to give your wedding florist a better idea of the kind of arrangements you’d like.
Find the right wedding florist
It’s important to find a florist who understands the vision you have for your wedding flowers. A seasoned professional will also be able to provide input on the best choice of flowers and making tough decisions. Make sure to read reviews, browse their website and social media, and find out what their specialty is.
