When you’re planning your wedding décor, one of the most important, but oft overlooked, pieces are your flowers. Wedding flowers are integral to the overall look and feel of your wedding, but it can be difficult to narrow down on the right ones. To help you navigate the world of flowers, here are some tips to choosing your wedding flowers:
Whether you create a scrapbook or a personal Pinterest board, collecting images of wedding floral arrangements is a great way to start narrowing down your choices. Eventually, you’ll start to see patterns form which will help you, and your florist, get a better idea of what you’re looking for.
Use your color scheme
Unless you have a specific flower that you absolutely love, it’s usually best to figure out your color scheme first before picking your flowers. Once you have a color scheme in mind, show it to your florist and they’ll be able to find the right flowers to complement the rest of your wedding décor.
Think about the season
The season of the wedding can also be a great source of inspiration. For example, if you’re having a fall wedding, then plan on having fall flowers. This isn’t just a good décor tip, it’ll also be easier (and cheaper) for you to get flowers that are in-season rather than out-of-season.
And think about your venue
Where you’re holding your wedding is just as important as when. If you’re having your wedding outdoors, then make sure your flowers go well with the current environment. If you’re having your wedding indoors, then your flowers should complement the setting. For example, if your wedding is being hosted at a rustic barn, then you’ll want flowers that enhance that rustic feel (such as sunflowers or wildflowers).
Go to the right florist
When in doubt, turn to the pros. Hiring the right florist will make this process ten times easier. So, if you’re needing an extra hand in selecting your wedding flowers, feel free to contact Dallas House of Florals to see how we can help.
