Where do I start and how do I choose? Agapanthus or Queen Anne’s Lace? Oriental Lilies or Tulips? Then again, Frangipani’s are always lovely… or the classic, Roses. Help! How do I choose my wedding flowers?
Selecting flowers for your wedding day can be just a little overwhelming. With so many to choose from and such a wide variety of arrangements and bridal bouquets, you might be tempted to give up and just pick flowers from your grandmothers garden! Here’s a brief guide on how to choose the right flowers to complement your wedding style and colour scheme and help make your local florists’ job a lot easier.
Choose Your Wedding Flowers in 3-Easy-Steps
1. Select your style
Formal and sophisticated, or casual and relaxed? You might be more of a traditional bride, or you’ve chosen a simple, contemporary theme. Your flowers should reflect the unique style of your wedding and help set the ambience for the ceremony and reception. Are you looking to add a splash of colour or go for more neutral tones? Once you’ve decided on your style and colours, you can select your flowers to match.
For your bridal bouquet, there are a number of arrangements you can choose from as detailed below. Tip# Make sure your bouquet is proportionate to your height. If you are tall get your florist to design a large, fuller bouquet. If you are shorter a long, cascading bouquet could dwarf you so make sure you try out different sizes with your wedding florist.
Posy: The posy is a round and small bouquet, usually bound together at the stems, wrapped in a beautiful satin and embellished with pearl pins. The Posy works well with straight or short wedding dress styles.
Cascade / Shower / Teardrop: Designed to spill gracefully over the brides’ hand, the arrangement tapers downward creating a beautiful, sophisticated look and coordinates with a flared or very full wedding dress.
Arm Spray: Cradled in the curve of the arm, or hung from the hand, the Arm Spray is a beautiful cluster of long stemmed flowers with more greenery. Ideal for a more simple dress shape or sleeveless style bridal gown.
Kissing Ball / Pomander: Flowers suspended from a loop of decorative ribbon creating a ball of flowers. Flowergirls and junior bridesmaids normally carry this type of bouquet.
Single Stem: Features one dramatic flower, such as a lily, and gives a simple but elegant look that would work beautifully with a simple fitted dress.
2. Make a list
Flowers are a versatile, simple and yet stunning decorative element for your big day. From bouquets to button holes, reception centrepieces to flowers for the cake, the choices of how and where you can use flowers are endless. Use a checklist to help you decide.
- Bridal bouquet plus bouquets for your bridesmaids.
- Baskets or Head Circlets, for the flowergirls.
- Buttonholes for the groomsmen.
- Corsages for the mother of the bride and any others.
- Ceremony flowers to decorate your venue.
- Reception flowers, such as table centrepieces – how many tables will you have?
- Cake flowers.
3. Choose your florist
Save time and look online to find a local wedding florist. Check out their Portfolio, either through their website or in-store, to get an idea of what they can do for you. Once you find a florist you like, schedule an appointment with them to discuss your ideas.
Take in photos, sketches or pictures from magazines to help communicate what you want. Hopefully by now you have narrowed down the style of your wedding, the colour scheme and list of flowers your require (step 2).
Find out if your wedding florist can deliver your flowers on the day or whether you will need to delegate a family member or friend to pick them up. For reception flowers, see if your venue has cold storage options to keep your flowers fresh until you arrive.
