ORDERING WEDDING FLOWERS
Tips on ordering the flowers for your wedding
Besides yourselves, your flowers will be one of the most photographed features of your wedding, so it is very important that you choose floral decorations and bouquets that match your overall wedding theme and style of your wedding venue.
Spending so much money ordering wedding flowers may seem daunting, but a floral specialist will know the latest trends and will be able to suggest ideas that complement the theme and feel you’re aiming for on the day. However, be realistic with your wedding budget and have an open mind about flower combinations – not all varieties are available all year round. Search for wedding florists who are local to the area and who know your venue well; there is likely to be a recommended suppliers list at your venue, and this is usually the best place to start looking and make sure you visit wedding supplier and get to know them a little; you need to trust your suppliers and know that they’re on the same wavelength as you and understand your visions for your day. Also, think about whether you want to hire faux wedding flowers from a budget conscious point of view, or if you’d rather have fresh flowers to re-use and take away with you once the wedding is over.
