Flowers really do make your wedding day a truly special and beautiful one. With so many stunning colours and styles out there they can really bring the wedding venues to life not to mention the brides bouquets and buttonholes. Table centrepieces can be a great talking point and instantly add to a chosen theme. Opting for flowers in season can not only save you money but they will be bright and full flowers.
'He loves me, he loves me not... he loves me!' From young sweethearts pulling petals, to gifts given between lovers, to the centrepiece of an intimate meal, to rose petals in a bath or on a bedsheet - there is something intrinsically romantic about flowers. Something that's synonymous with beautiful weddings are of course beautiful wedding flowers. From the traditional and elegant flower types such as roses, lilies and chrysanthemums - to the perhaps slightly more modern and striking freesias, orchids and even gerberas, there are so many different kinds of flowers to choose from. And that's just the beginning - once you've got your type of wedding flowers organised, there's also the full spectrum of colours to think about! Flowers of course play many a part in a wedding - from the bridal bouquet, to decorations at your ceremony and reception venues, to corsages and buttonholes. Before you work yourself up into a floral frenzy with all the decisions in front of you, please take a look at The Bridal File - our directory of wedding florists will be sure to give you some great ideas for your wedding flowers and put you in contact with professionals supplying wedding flowers in your area.
The bridal bouquet is an important part of the rite of marriage and deserves some thought. Depending on your taste and personality, you may decide to go bright and bold to really make an impact, perhaps matching the colour of your bouquet with the colour of your bridesmaid dresses or wedding decorations. Or - perhaps more traditional, elegant and understated wedding flowers to complement your wedding dress will be more your cup of tea.
Obviously, when you're trying to decide on what type of wedding flowers you want, look at what flowers are in season, as you're guaranteed that these will at their best and in full bloom, and will be more cost-effective than ordering in out-of-season or rare flower types that will have to be imported. On the home page of The Bridal File, you will find an ever-changing list of flowers that are in season at the moment which may be useful when planning what sort of wedding flowers you may like.
It's quite common for couples to marry their wedding flowers up as part of a theme, by perhaps having the same kind of flowers in the groom and groomsmen's lapels, and/or in vases on your tables at your reception. As well as the same type of flowers being a nice thread tying together the participants, the ceremony venue, and the reception venue, buying in a certain type of flower in bulk from your wedding florist can also be a little cheaper - and any savings you can possibly make are worth it when you're planning a wedding, particularly a large-scale one.
Many wedding florists offer a service where they will deliver your flowers to the venue or venues themselves, which can often be worth your while as they will be delivered often in a refrigerated van, and you can be sure they will arrive in pristine condition. If you're thinking of picking up your wedding flowers from the florist yourself - make sure the florist is based locally - as travelling for a long time in a car can cause the petals to go limp.
Fortunately - we've compiled a long list of professional wedding flower suppliers and services right here - many of whom are bound to be servicing your local area. Good luck!
