Flowers and your Wedding

For all brides their wedding day is the biggest day of their lives and one of the most important factors that need to be perfect is the floral arrangements.

As soon as your guests enter the church or reception venue the first thing that they will set their eyes upon is the décor and you only get one chance to make a first impression. That first glance by your guests and they will be able to tell whether the wedding décor was put together at the last thing or whether it has been planned for months with every little detail ironed out.

Flowers can transform the reception from a dull and plain venue to a bright and glorious venue. Do not try and do all the arrangements yourself as it can be a very stressful task. It is not always cheaper to do it yourself as you mistakes could mean you spending more money to fix the problem.

A couple of clever things you can do for your flower arrangements to make them look great but not going over your budget are:

Choose the colours that fit: The colours of the flowers should match with the colour theme you have picked for the wedding. For example do not match wrong colours just because some colours are currently popular. If you do this then it will take away the hard work that has gone into organising the colour and floral decorations. You need to add flowers that calm and compliment your existing colour scheme.

The sizes of your centre pieces: Since it is currently summer your colour need to be bright and bold because of this the centre pieces you pick don’t need to be that big. Keep the arrangements as fresh as possible. Instead of trying to add size to the arrangement add a bit of substance and body for example; add fruit pieces to create a modern look. This will help you stay within a budget.

The glamour of the wedding: Crystals are viewed as a very wintery product. You can try and incorporate the crystals in an arrangement of flowers with a touch of greenery. If you can pull this off then it will create a tasteful summer arrangement with lots of glamour.
