Lovely Bridal Blooms Top 10 Wedding Flower Tips
Choose the Bridal Bouquet first;
It's your day! So choose the flowers and colours you want for your bouquet, we can then easily choose complimentary colours and flowers for the rest of the bridal party
Choose a Bouquet style to suit your gown and shape;
You wouldn't wear stilettos with track pants (I hope!) So ensuring you have the right bouquet for the right gown and body shape is vital, and you will stand out for all the right reasons!
Don't overdo it!;
Your wedding flowers should compliment your entire look, not overtake everything else! If you have a gorgeous ornate gown, a small simple bouquet will compliment without competing for attention. Don't hide yourself behind a mass of flowers and colours. Simple and elegant is the key.
Don't get caught up too much with trends;
Your Mum or Aunty may have thought giant lily's and red carnations was the height of trendiness in the 80's. Being right on trend may be great now, but it won't be long before it is well out of vogue. Keeping your flowers elegant and unique will look great for your Wedding Day, and you will proudly be able to display your wedding pictures for the grand kiddies to see for many years to come.
Choose flowers that are in season;
You may have your heart set on out of season blooms like Tulips in December, or Peonies in May. Although we may be able to import them for you, the quality is lower and the price is much higher. Choosing in season blooms will mean you bouquets have freshly picked flowers, which will last the day, without a massive price tag
Have a back-up;
If your wedding day is right at the start or end of your chosen flowers season, it is always a good idea to think of an alternative. Choosing a "back-up bouquet" will give you peace of mind, just in case your flower is unavailable. We can help you pick some alternative blooms that will keep with your theme and colour scheme, so no matter what happens, you will have beautiful fresh bouquets for your big day!
Bridesmaid bouquets don't need to be the exact colour of their gowns;
As we mentioned earlier, complimentary or contrasting colours look fantastic on hard to match gowns. It's our job to help guide you towards colours that will work best for you and your Bridesmaids. And remember when in doubt, white blooms will match with any colour, style, shape and size!
Don't sweat the small stuff;
It is easy to become so immersed in your wedding preparations. Do you really need to know the exact measurements of a leaf for a buttonhole? Or exactly how many petals are in the box of mixed rose petals! (yes I was recently asked both those questions) Getting caught up on the small things is a waste of your time and energy. We are the professionals, we will ensure everything is perfect, so flip off the Bridezilla switch and take your fiancé out for the day!
