Tips for planning wedding flowers

The holiday season is a popular time for proposals. If you’re newly engaged, congratulations!

Once you’ve had some time to enjoy the excitement of your engagement, it’s time to start thinking about wedding plans. Flowers are an important part of the colors and style of your wedding, so start thinking about them and put together a floral plan as early as possible.

Are you having a reception with table centerpieces? A flower girl? How many bridesmaids? Do you want to pass out extra petals for guests to throw at you as you walk down the aisle or as you leave the reception? All of these important touches will need extra planning and will impact your floral budget.

One of the most important pieces of advice we give brides is don’t skimp on your floral budget! Your flowers make a statement on your wedding day and appear in all of your wedding photos. While the flowers themselves will eventually die, they’ll live on forever in your wedding album, so make sure you budget appropriately for your wedding flowers.

To be certain your flowers look their best on your wedding day, talk with your florist about your timeline. What time is the wedding? When will the flowers be picked up or delivered to your venue? How much time will it take to place the flowers around the venue? What style of bouquet do you want? Some bouquets aren’t designed to sit in a vase of water, which impacts how early you can pick up the bouquets or other flowers on your wedding day.
