Wedding flowers fit for the spring
Many couples prefer to get married during the spring season for a number of reasons. One of the main reason is the weather. You don’t have to worry about extreme cold or blistering heat. Apart from making everyone uncomfortable, extreme weather can also take a toll on your wedding flowers. Spring, therefore, really is the ideal time of year. If you are planning your wedding for this time of year but you are not sure how to go about choosing the right blooms, here are some important tips to keep in mind.
Every wedding has a colour scheme so, the first thing you need to do is decide which colour you wish to use for your décor. This will determine the colours of your bridesmaids’ dresses, handheld bouquets, centrepieces and other decorations for the ceremony and reception. During the spring season, pastel colours are usually more popular. Therefore, you should consider wedding flowers in colours such as light pink, purple, lime green, peach, blue and so on. You can also add plenty of white to keep the theme light.
The perfect bouquet
The bride’s bouquet is one of the most important elements to decide when choosing wedding flowers. Her bouquet should be unique and them most elegant of all. Some of the most popular flower choices include roses, tulips, peonies, orchids and dahlias. The key is to consider the style and size of the bouquet according to the style of her dress. Once you have done so, you can choose the right colours. Remember, if you want to use white in the bouquet, you should ensure that there is plenty of green too. This will ensure that the white flowers don’t blend in with the white dress when it comes time for wedding photos.
There are two venues that you will need to decorate when planning your wedding – the ceremony and the reception. You want the colour scheme to remain the same at both venues but the types of arrangements will differ. For example, you may wish to add an arch at the ceremony venue while your reception will call for centrepieces on each table. Remember, you should ensure that the bride’s bouquet contains the most elegant and striking blooms of all since it should stand out from all the other arrangements.
One of the greatest challenges for couples is making sure that the day is just right but without breaking the bank. For this reason, the wedding flowers you choose for your ceremony might be useful at the reception too. If you have any table displays at the reception, you could have a trusted friend or family member transport them from the ceremony to the reception as soon as the ceremony is over. This way, you can really make the most of these blooms.
With these easy tips in mind, now is the time to start looking for the perfect wedding flowers. Take the time to compare prices as well as browse through the portfolios of your favourite florists in order to find the one that will suit your needs and your budget.
