Our Top Tips For Your Wedding Flowers
Updated: May 23, 2020
Throw away the 'rule' book!
Weddings come in all shapes and sizes these days. When it comes to your flowers in particular don't get caught up on making sure you x, y and z designs. There are no real rules. If you want one large installation and no bouquets, then you can have it! It is your wedding and up to you how you style your day.
Be open with us about your budget and we can help suggest which designs are worth having for your day. We can provide guidance and ways of making the most of your money and which pieces are worth investing in for your day. Typically, the flowers will make up around 10% of your wedding budget. We often find it is worth investing in a few select pieces and leaving all the little details to rest. Most of our couples let us have free reign over the selection of the blooms, as long as we stick to their colour scheme-meaning they are getting the most stunning selection for their money.
Remember it's a celebration you're planning
Planning a wedding can be stressful at times so try and keep in mind that it's a joyful day you are planning. If it does start to feel overwhelming, look at ways you can simplify so you can enjoy the planning as well as the day itself.
Be open to flowers and colours
By being open to different flowers in the season and having a few select blooms you love will ensure you get the best selection of flowers. Don't shy away from adding different tones of your colour scheme into your flowers, this will add depth and interest to the overall look. We are happy to provide different colour boards to see the range of colours that are available.
Do a little research
We aren't asking that know all the florist jargon but a little bit of research into what you like will help. Know what flowers you particularly love (and don't love!) what designs are a must have and the style you like are important. These will help portray to us your style and help us design your perfect florals. Have a read of our Seasonality Guide and why not get together a Pinterest board to help and look to Instagram for inspiration.
Don't be afraid to ask
Ask us anything! We will be able to explore your options with you and have honest conversations with you about what you want. Our job is to be able to give you options, offer advice, answer questions and help style your day.
Floral Design is an art
Be open to different ideas and flowers. We find it best to provide us with a few choice photos for reference that help show your likes and dislikes and let us come up with floral magic for your day!
Flowers for a Church Ceremony
Church ceremony flowers sometimes work differently to venue ceremonies, depending on the church. Sometimes the Church will have a preferred Church florist they only work with and some ask you to leave a floral design for their Sunday service. If you are unsure ask your Church and they will be able to advise you.
