Congratulations, Let The Planning Commence!
Planning your dream wedding is an important job – especially if you want to have the most perfect wedding on a tight budget.
First off, get yourself a decent wedding planner – with lots of space for collecting ideas and writing notes. Wedding organisers are full of checklists and schedule pages to help couples plan a fantastic wedding whilst not going totally crazy! It will help you to stay on schedule, keep within a budget and give you a step by step plan to ensure you create the wedding of your dreams!.
When it comes to the florals…
So you’ve exhausted the pinterest boards, trawled through the wedding blogs and now have a clear vision of how you want your day to look and feel, you can now start focusing on the separate subjects.
Picking the perfect wedding flowers for your big day takes careful planning. You should consider how many flowers you need, who they are for and if you also want flowers for the ceremony and reception itself.
Start making a quick list of wedding flowers you are interested in as it will help guide you and your wedding florist in making final decisions. A wedding flower list will also help focus your discussions with your florist and really help you to stay within your floral budget.
“So, exactly how many flowers do I need for my wedding day?” this is a question that almost every bride to be asks…
THINK ABOUT WHERE YOU WANT FLOWERS AND WHO YOU WANT TO HAVE THEM AND PULL TOGETHER YOUR LIST BEFORE YOU TALK TO WEDDING FLORISTS
Before we can work our creative magic, we need to be able to envision what you really want from us. You don’t need to be artistic yourself or have an extensive knowledge of flowers but the more insight you can give us, the easier it is for us to advise, design and bring your vision to life.
The wedding flowers we highlight below are a general guide rather than a must-have.
- Bride’s bouquet
- Bride’s floral crown or hair flowers
- Bridesmaids’ bouquets
- Tossing bouquet (for the bouquet toss at the reception)
- Flower girl’s bouquet (or basket of petals, floral crown, or pomander)
- Groom’s boutonniere
- Groomsmen’s boutonnieres
- Mother of the bride’s corsage
- Mother of the groom’s corsage
- Father of the bride’s boutonniere
- Father of the groom’s boutonniere
Make sure you discuss different options for the ceremony to find ways to re-purpose the flower arrangements from the ceremony to use at the reception. This could save you a fortune!
- Entryway / door arches or welcome table arrangements
- Altar arrangements
- Pew or chair arrangements
- Aisle decorations
- Tossing petals for guests
- Table plan arrangements
