Planning a Wedding - Flower
Wedding flowers are a fantastic way tyo decorate your wedding venue. The wedding flowers you pick will be a large part of your day.
You will have flowers to decorate your ceremony and reception area but you will need a bouquet to match for you and your bridesmaids along with button holes for the groom, bestman, and usher.
If you are ordering your flowers from a florist you should look at meeting them around 6-8 months before the wedding to get some ideas, see what is in season and what is possible with your budget. Your florist will have a vast amount of knowledge and will be able to help you choose the most suitable flowers to suit your venue, theme or colour scheme.
If you budget allows you will need flowers to decorate the ceremony and reception room, along with centre pieces and button holes.
Here are some ideas we have come across for flowers.
1) Wild Flowers
You dont always need to have traditional style flowers at a wedding. For a rustic theme why not consider a jar with wild flowers in?
2) Babies Breath
Always thought of as a background flower in a bouquet it is now becoming popular for wedding flowers in its own right. It is also extremely cheap to buy.
3) Elegant White
Sometimes you can't get flowers to match your colour scheme exactly so white or cream flowers can be a perfect choice.
4) Orchid Branches
Orchid branches are a great alternative to traditional flowers
Flowers can be used to decorate venues in elaborate ways. This huge arch has been decorated with babies breath
Sometimes less is more. Here are small bunches of hydrangeas in metallic pots.
7) Lights and Trees
Not everyone wants flowers at their wedding. As alternative trees can look fantastic. Add lights and garlands. Trees were good enough for Kate Middleton ;)
The photo shows a great way to bring flowers into a rustic theme. Watering cans, a spade and rustic wooden sign.
9) Aisle Runner
Consider using petals as an aisle runner, creates a stunning look.
10) Bright Colours
Flowers come in all colours so why not mix and match a little. Here is a great examples using orange flowers and turquoise vases
