Before meeting your wedding florist, plan a check list with your partner and list all the wedding flowers you’ll need for your special day.
This list will help you stick to budget and help with making decisions. We have done the hard work for you and put together a wedding flowers guide for you to tick off on the checklist. It is only a guide so choose to skip or include any elements to suit your wedding style and requirements.
The Starting Point
Finalise your colour pallet and theme before you select the flowers. This will make it easier to choose flowers to match both your wedding gown or tux, the bridal party and the days decor. Your florist can help guide you with what flowers will be in season.
Three Floral Staying Tips
- SIZE Don’t block your guests vision by cluttering the space on the table with flowers.
- FRAGRANCE Do not overwhelm the room with a floral scent by using heavily perfumed flowers. Some of your guests will have allergies, The most common allergy to flowers is the Asiatic Lily.
- PERSONALITY All flowers have their own unique character, just like us. Choose flowers that are meaningful to you and that suit your personality.
