Inspired by conversations with couples, here are a few tips and information for you to consider when planning your wedding flowers.
Make sure you know how much you’ve budgeted for flowers and let your florist know at the beginning. If you have no clue, depending on what you need, we would say that £1,500.00 is a realistic starting amount to spend. We can discuss a range you would like to stay within or a spending cap, working to fit to your budget and find creative ways to make your dream wedding come true.
Every florist has their own style and even if you show something from Pinterest it will never be exactly the same. Also no two bouquets are the same even when created by the same florist as flowers can be slightly different from each other and unless you know exactly the name of that rose you saw online, you might get the approximate colour in real life.
Use seasonal blooms. It really does make a difference. And obviously, it creates a more natural, seasonal look. You will receive advice on this and if you’ve got your heart set on a certain flower but it’s just not practical for the time of year, there will be suggestions for something else.
Don’t feel obliged to book if it doesn’t feel right. It’s important to remember that, although a florist will be working to your brief, they are creative people and will produce their best work when working within their style. Some people would choose a wedding florist that has a very structured style, some may choose a florist with a more wildflower/boho approach, some may prefer a florist that makes the most wonderful classic bouquets. Have a think about the general style of your day and check if they can share your vision. It will be a pleasant journey for all. A favoured style is relaxed, lush and colourful. 🙂
