Have an open mind

It can be all too easy to get your heart set on a specific type of flower only to find out they aren’t in season during the month of your wedding. However, there are a ton of different flowers that are available all year round, so if you have an open mind going to the florist you’ll be able to leave with something you love.

Understands how floral colors work

There is a lot that goes into floral colors, and it is important to figure out how each color’s undertone works. For example, some red flowers may have orange undertones that won’t match well with cooler flowers, such as green or blue. So with this in mind, it is crucial to be flexible when it comes to picking your exact flowers and their shades.


Splurge on your bridal bouquet

Your bridal bouquet will be the one flower arrangement that will be seen the most in your photos, so make sure to invest wisely! Don’t skimp on your bridal bouquet, if anything you will want to spend a little extra money to ensure it sticks out and helps to create beautiful photographs.


Be willing to change your flower design ideas

When choosing your colors it is crucial that you think about how they are going to photograph. For example, you may want to create a bouquet of both dark and light flowers, but this may look like polka dots when photographed. So, to ensure the true colors shine through, you may have to incorporate some light gray flowers or even a contrast color to make the design pop.
