Underscore the drama of your wedding with the right flowers. Find a professional who will take the time to learn about you and the ambience you want to create. An artistic florist will suggest lovely and unusual designs for your
wedding bouquet and floral arrangements, while offering a wide price range. Six months before the wedding is not too early to select your florist, especially if you’re planning an elaborate wedding. When you talk with your florist,
be guided by these elements: the style and the mood of your wedding, the season and the setting, your budget, and what you like.
Go prepared. Selecting your gown, the bridesmaids’ dresses and the overall color theme is a must before visiting your florist. Take fabric swatches and descriptions (pictures are even better) of your selected wedding apparel.
Also have examples of the colors and styles of the mothers’ gowns and the attire of the groom and his attendants. With this information in hand, your florist will be able to suggest floral combinations and artistic treatments to create
beautiful floral compliments for your wedding. It is always a good idea to request that your florist give you an itemized bill in advance. Plus, make sure that you supply the florist with the names, addresses, and times for delivery of
your bouquet, boutonnieres, corsages and floral arrangements.
Traditionally, the bridal bouquet is composed of all white flowers, but if you would prefer, the addition of colorful blossoms is certainly appropriate. The grooms boutonniere, worn on his left lapel, is usually a spray of the same type of
blossoms used in your bouquet. Remember that the ushers and groomsmen wear boutonnieres different from the groom’s, and your attendants’ flowers are different, of course, from your bridal bouquet. Corsages for the mothers and boutonnieres for the fathers are coordinated in color and style within the general color theme.
