Flowers and special floral arrangements can elevate a wedding ceremony and reception to the next level.
While some people may think flowers don’t matter much during a wedding, taking some extra time to choose the right ones and putting some effort into how they’ll tie your chosen venue together will make a big difference in the impact your wedding will have on everyone involved.
However, picking out flowers and choosing what to have at your wedding can get overwhelming as it sometimes seems like the options are endless.
So, here are some tips for choosing flowers for your wedding day.
First, you’ll want to settle on a theme or aesthetic for your wedding. Settle on the season you want your wedding to be in, the color pattern, venue, etc. From there, choosing which flowers you want to order for the ceremony and reception will be easier.
If you want your wedding to have a calm, flowy vibe, you should look into flowers like lilies of the valley, sweet peas, and baby’s breath, as they have a soft look. If you’re looking for something a little louder and brighter, search for some poppies, roses, or colorful wildflowers.
Although there are flowers available at florists’ shops year-round, the season you get married during can have a big influence over the floral arrangements at your wedding.
If you’re getting married in the fall, you may want to embrace the warmer, earthier tones of the season. Some great fall wedding flowers include dahlias, chrysanthemums, and calla lilies.
Winter weddings can be beautiful and are a great opportunity to choose some flowers that remind you of the holidays or make you feel cozy yet elegant, like poinsettias or even some winter foliage like fir branches or snowberries.
