When almost 63% of brides report that they feel pressure to have the perfect wedding, it’s no wonder so many of them are overwhelmed. If you’re one of those brides and you’re worried about your bridal bouquet or other wedding florals, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s review a few key planning tips to make sure your wedding florals enchant everyone in attendance.
Work with a Local Florist
One of the simplest, yet most effective things you can do to make sure your bridal bouquet and other wedding florals shine is work with a local florist. Not only will they have a good idea of the local venue you plan on using, but they’ll also be able to recommend native and seasonal blooms that can bring an extra special something to your big day. When you work with a local florist, you’re investing in someone who will take the time to understand and cultivate your vision for perfect floral arrangements on your wedding day. In most cases, they’ll personally deliver and care for your flowers on the day of the wedding, as well.
Bring Your Inspiration to Your Florist
Once you decide on a florist, it’s important to bring your inspiration with you. If you have a perfect vision but no visuals to back it up, then you and your florist will both be flying blind into one of the most important days of your life. So before you head out to see your florist, make sure you have some inspiration material ready to use as a reference. Your materials could be pictures from a wedding you attended, cutouts from magazines, and even Pinterest boards that you’ve cultivated with all sorts of wedding inspo. The more material you can bring for inspiration, the better off you’ll be.
Have Your Color Palette Figured Out
Knowing your color palette before you select flowers is crucial to making sure all of your big day blooms look fabulous. If you have a rough idea of what your color palette is going to be, your florist may be able to help you pick one or two accent colors that will complement the whole day. The key is having an idea of what your colors are going to be before you see your florist. Without at least some semblance of a color palette picked out, they won’t be able to craft bridal bouquets or table arrangements that match your event.
Once you have these three tips in your pocket, there’s no denying that your wedding day florals will be a smashing success. If you have questions about bridal bouquets, don’t hesitate to contact our team today.
