Your wedding day is definitely one of the most important days of your life but ensuring that everything goes to plan is a daunting task that takes a ton of time and effort to prepare for.

Finding the perfect venue, saying yes to the ultimate dress and picking out the most beautiful invitations are just some of the things you have to contend with…but what about the flowers?

To help you finalise the type of flowers or arrangements you want to see at your big day we’ve compiled a few tips that’ll help you do just that.

Do Your Research

Take your time deciding on what flora and fauna you want to include on your wedding day and what it’s called.  There are two main things that you should know: the names of the flowers and their scientific terms, like the types of bouquets, arrangement and other details.

Set a Budget

Before you get too excited about choosing the type of flowers you want at your wedding. This step is the most important part of the planning process – budgeting. Your budget will also determine the types of flowers you can use in your bouquets, the church, the reception, so take a moment to sit down with your fiancé and decide what amount you are comfortable spending.

Pin Up! 

Gather up inspiration from your most trusted wedding inspiration source – Pinterest, of course! Being browsing through images on your favourite boards will surely help, you might find floral arrangements that you will absolutely love from here you will be able to develop a sense of what you both like and don’t like.

Take Note of Your Colour Scheme

If you’re feeling stumped about planning for your wedding flowers think of them in terms of colour to help narrow down your choices. Whichever flowers you choose, they don’t have to be an exact match but try to choose blooms that are within your colour scheme.

When you want the colours to match your colour scheme, make sure to be as specific as possible when you discuss with your florist.

It’s Okay To Reuse 

The wedding ceremony will probably last less than an hour, so it’s a shame to not enjoy your flowers for longer. Aisle arrangements can flank the cake table, bridesmaid bouquets can add colour to the escort card display and an archway can make for a memorable exit. Talk to your florist about how you can reuse arrangements to get the most out of the flowers.
