CHOOSING A FLORIST
When visiting florists, ask to see photos of previous weddings they’ve done. Like photographers, florists all have different styles and it is important to choose one which matches yours.
Provide them with as much information as possible about your budget, dress style, theme, chosen colours, venue and the time of year in mind for the wedding.
Depending on your taste, you may only want a bridal bouquet and buttonhole for the groom. On the other hand, you may get into a floral frenzy and decide on lavish reception decorations, including gorgeous hanging arrangements.
Loose and organic – think a wild woodland aesthetic of cascading foliage and horizontal stretch, with a lavish “just picked” feel.
Foliage – vines, branches and leaves are featuring in beautiful organic (and budget-friendly) bouquets and backdrops.
Floral accessories – delicate headpieces and subtle vines woven into wedding day hair.
Food for thought – herbs, berries and nuts are infusing interest, fragrance and texture into bouquets and table settings.
FLOWERS FOR EVERY SEASON
Not all flowers are available at all times of the year; knowing what is in season can not only help you avoid disappointment when you meet with your florist, but in-season flowers will be cheaper, brighter and fresher than hothouse-grown blooms. There are some great online guides to help you hit the mark.
