Perfecting Your Bridal Bouquet

When asked to envision a wedding, a mental image of a grown is a no brainer. One of the accessories that gets to bask in the glow of attention? The bridal bouquet. In selecting your bridal flowers, it is important to explore your options. You will find varying opinions of course, however, it's important to note that there are few hard and fast rules. If you can dream it and possess the means, you can likely make it work. Read on for a few tips on selecting the perfect bridal flowers/bouquets.

  • Select flowers that are in season.

An abundant supply generally helps to keep the cost down. An out of season and/or rare flower will command a premium.

  • Consider silk flowers.

There is not a rule that says you must use real flowers. While the cost may increase, silk flowers are a great option for those who want easy bouquet preservation or a bride who suffers from allergies.

  • Size matters.

If you're a petite person, as tempting beautiful as the gigantic bouquet may be, you don't ever want yourself to be overwhelmed by the floral arrangement. You want the end result to be flawless, so be realistic about what works on you and what may be best left to other people.

  • Bring pictures.

Chances are you've flipped through at least one wedding magazine. Make note of flowers/arrangments that catch your eye, and give them to your florist. This will help you to collaborate about possible options.

  • Explore symbolism.

For some of us, symbolism is everything. If this sounds familiar, consider exploring the meanings behind various flowers. Violets, for example, symbolize hope and modesty. Tulips, on the other hand, are known to represent enchantment. This can be a fun exercise, as well as a great way to learn new things. What about you? What are some of your favorite flowers and what do they represent?

Finally...

  • Communicate with your florist!

Be sure to give them plenty of notice, especially if you need your flowers to be flown in. Remember, your florist is the expert. They want to make you happy, so don't hesitate to speak your mind.
Happy flower hunting!
