One key thing that can make a wedding spectacular is the floral arrangements. Florals can enhance your bridal gown, set the mood for your event and tie everything together. They bring life and add color to the couple’s most memorable day. For these reasons, they shouldn’t be excluded in a wedding. However, being the biggest day in your life, you have to tread carefully when it comes to flowers. There are very many options and deciding on the right ones may be a challenging task for you. Here are tips to take into considerations before finalizing things in this regard.
Certain Flowers Bring Forth Specific Styles
Did you know that flowers can evoke your intended wedding style? Bunches of traditional blooms such as peonies and roses showcase a classic look while lush flowers exude a soft, romantic touch. Sleek architectural flowers have a modern look while vibrant flowers with greenery evoke a rustic touch. You just need to work with your florist to determine the best flowers that will match your style. Also, you can choose to substitute flowers with other alternatives such as fruits, feathers or even wheatgrass.
Flowers Are Available in a Wide Range of Colors
Roses, for example, are available in various colors such as red, light pink, peach, orange, salmon, white, yellow etc. The list of colors is endless. You have to determine whether it’s roses you want, or you’re after a white bloom. A photo of your bridal gown can help your florist through this process. Also, what’s your style? Pastel florals are ultra-feminine, soft green plus white creates a timeless look and vibrant colors create a modern feel. You can go with one hue, a pair or even mix a number of hues for a dramatic effect.
Let Your Flowers Carry Meaning
Why not have your floral arrangements personalized to have a certain meaning? For instance, stephanotis stems back to Victorian times and is associated with marital happiness, roses are a symbol of love, beauty, and passion, Gardenia gives a sense of purity, Calla lily gives off a feeling of simplicity and eliteness. Florists are professionals when it comes to flowers and thus, they know different flowers and their meanings. Tell them the meaning you want to give off and they’ll suggest perfect flowers for that effect.
Flowers Are Not Just For Centerpieces and Bouquets
When couples think of flowers, they only think of centerpieces and bouquets. However, they can be used for other purposes as well. For example at the altar, the aisle for amazing photos as the bride walks down, surrounding the space where the couple will be having their first dance. Also, don’t forget other floral arrangements such as corsages and boutonnieres.
The importance of choosing the right flowers can’t be emphasized enough. With all the above tips considered, enjoy browsing through all the gorgeous flower options for your wedding. Whether you’re looking for traditional ethereal white blooms or a mix of hot and passionate colors, you’ll find flowers that will enhance the look of your event. Remember to do your research and choose what aligns well with your bridal gown. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
