Wedding Flowers [A Guide]

Wedding flowers are one of the most meaningful selections in a woman’s life. It’s undoubtedly one of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding. Though choosing a bouquet can be stressful, wedding bouquets also give the bride a chance to have fun and express herself.

This article will help you decide on the perfect wedding flowers for your unforgettable day. After reading this post, you’ll be ready to talk with your florist and achieve your dream bridal bouquet.

How to Choose Bridal Bouquets

We understand that choosing bridal bouquets can be overwhelming. Here are some expert tips from our florists to help you begin the process.

Choose Your Dress and Venue First

One pro-tip is to choose the wedding flowers after you’ve chosen your venue and dress.  Though some brides may go straight to the wedding bouquets, holding off makes more sense. You want to let the venue and dress influence the flowers so that everything flows.

For example, if you’re having a beach wedding, you may want to interlace conch shells into the flowers’ foliage. If you’re having a backyard wedding, you can disperse baby’s breath into your bouquet for a laid-back, delicate look.

Get Inspired by Magazines and Websites

We encourage our clients to think beyond the colours and types of flowers. Also consider size, shape, and accents such as ribbons. Look through bridal magazines and websites to get some initial ideas to see what colours and styles you prefer.

You can look at the Wedding Flowers Section on Broadmeadows Bloom to see some popular styles. Since there are so many possibilities, you can start to gather a collection of looks that you love. Then, show these screenshots to your floral designer.

Decide on a Budget

A good rule of thumb is that 10 per cent of your total wedding budget will go towards flowers. Therefore, be realistic about the size and price of your bridal bouquet and wedding table flowers. It’s better to give your florist your budget at the beginning, rather than wait until the end and go over-budget.

Also, keep in mind that off-season flowers will be more expensive. For example, if you must have peony bouquets in February, be prepared to pay more for them.
