Choosing flowers for your wedding seems like a simple task before you start the actual planning process. With all of the possible considerations for wedding flowers, it can be overwhelming to narrow down the options and make the best choice. Before getting too invested in one flower option, do some planning and research to ensure that you’re choosing beautiful flowers that you will be able to incorporate into all of your décor and into your wedding budget.
One important consideration is your wedding’s color scheme. If you’ve already chosen your wedding colors, you’ll need to choose flowers that match or compliment your wedding colors. If you haven’t picked out your wedding colors or theme, be sure to choose flowers that come in a wide range of colors or that you know will compliment or inspire your eventual color choices.
Where will you use flowers at your wedding? Will your bridal bouquet have the only flowers in the room, or will you incorporate many flowers throughout the wedding? Possible options are bridesmaid’s bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages for family members and groomsmen, centerpieces, and other floral displays.
Unless you have an unlimited wedding budget, cost is a big factor when choosing flowers. While some flowers like roses or Gerbera daisies are more affordable, others such as Peonies or Lilies are going to max out your budget for flowers quickly. Of course, if you want to have lots of flowers then you’ll need to adjust your wedding budget accordingly. However, going super cheap on flowers isn’t always a good idea. Of course, one option is to pick up artificial flowers and make your own bouquets and centerpieces, and that certainly can be a good option for hands-on brides with limited budgets or who want to allocate most of their budgets toward other things like a more expensive dress, great catering, or an incredible venue. But for brides who love flowers, spending several thousand dollars on flowers is worth every penny. A florist on the pricier side will also be more skilled and able to work with you more closely and make your vision a reality for the wedding day.
There are plenty of things to think about before selecting the flowers for your wedding, but with some planning, research, and budgeting, you will be able to find the perfect options for all of your wedding flowers.
