Tips and Tricks to Choose the Best Wedding Flowers: Part 2

In our previous post, we discussed some of our Essex wedding florist approved tips and tricks for picking out the best wedding flowers for your big day. Your flowers only make your dream wedding that much more beautiful, so follow these tips to ensure these accessories are perfect for your special day!


If you are on a budget, go for monochromatic

We understand that weddings can be expensive, and wedding flowers are no exception. If you have a strict budget to stick to for your wedding, make sure to choose flowers all in the same hue to make the biggest impact. This is because a monochromatic color scheme makes everything look more organized and upscale, no matter the number of flowers you buy.

Reuse your ceremony flowers for the reception

Make sure to design your flowers in a way where they can be reused for both the ceremony and the reception! You’ll save time and money doing so and it couldn’t be easier to keep your theme consistent between both venues.


Keep the dresses in mind when you pick out your bouquets

While there may not be any specific rules to follow when it comes to choosing the right wedding bouquet, it is a good idea to keep the dress silhouette in mind during the decision-making process. For example, if you have simple sheath dresses, a cascading bouquet with long stems may be a good idea, and if you have a big ballgown, a more rounded bouquet could be a better option.

Likewise, don’t forget about your bridesmaid dresses. Make sure the color of the dresses doesn’t clash horribly with your floral arrangements.

Don’t be afraid to bring pictures, but make sure to have realistic expectations

We all know how popular photos of wedding florals can be online, with pictures of bouquets and centerpieces everywhere on your social media timelines. Bringing photos with you is always a good idea when it comes to making your vision clear to your florist, but it is important to know that you may not be able to get exactly what you want. You will have to take into consideration the season, your budget, and how big your venue is before you make your final decisions.

With these tips in mind, you will be on your way to having the best wedding flowers possible!
