Choosing Your Wedding Flowers...

From chic elegance to sumptuous exuberance, nothing adds colour, perfume, and personality to your big day like fresh flowers.

The flowers you choose for your bouquet will depend on your colour scheme, what’s in season at the time, and your budget – which you will need to keep firmly in mind, as it’s very easy to get carried away by all that fragrant beauty! Other than your bouquet, you may also want floral headpieces, buttonholes, bridesmaids’ bouquets, corsages, and don’t forget flowers for the flower girl. Some brides order rose petals to replace confetti, and a fresh flower decoration for your wedding cake can look stunning.

The selection of flowers for your bouquet is your first priority. All other arrangements should then be designed to complement it. Your bridesmaids’ bouquets can be either a smaller version of yours, or provide a complete contrast. For your flower girl, choose something easy for small hands to carry, or consider a pomander of flowers to be worn on her wrist. Buttonholes and corsages should also complement your bouquet.

For an outdoor ceremony, flower filled urns and topiary trees will add colour and can also be used to demarcate the area. If you have chosen a garden location, the need for additional flowers could be considerably reduced depending on the time of year.

No matter whether your wedding theme is urban chic, country charm, or glitzy glamour, flowers will help you to set the mood. And after going to the trouble (and expense) of creating a bouquet that has helped to shape the mood of your wedding day, wouldn’t you like to keep it? Flower preservation can ensure that you enjoy your bouquet for a long time to come.
