How to choose your wedding flowers?

Choosing your wedding flowers is either exciting or just another item on your “To do” list.  Flowers add a special touch to your big day. They bring colour, a lovely scent, and of course elegance.  Your wedding flowers help showcase your colour theme and the overall look and feel. 

With all the choices of flowers available, choosing your wedding flowers could be very challenging and overwhelming. Our wedding experts are here to help you decide if wedding flowers are for you.

Why are flowers so expensive?

You’re right, they can be, so budget accordingly. Flowers are delicate and are considered a luxury product, therefore they are priced as such. Decide your budget first and bring that with you when you go to each florist to gather quotes. You should get several quotes and ask a lot of questions about the flowers and service.

How do I choose my wedding flowers?

Your colour scheme will rule all here. Do some research first to understand what options are out there.

Also, if you have an understanding of which flowers are in season could help you save some money.

Where should I have flowers at my wedding?

Flowers can be as simple or as intricate as you want them to be. From bouquets to centrepieces to hair accessories, flowers can be used in a variety of creative ways. We suggest looking at Pinterest and searching wedding websites for inspiration. Your florist and wedding coordinator can also help you decide where to place your flowers around the venue. 

How do I find flowers that are my ‘style’?
