4 FACTORS TO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING TO BUY THE WEDDING FLOWERS
Wedding Flowers Seasons
The wedding flowers should be appropriate to the season in which the wedding is being held as some flowers simply look better at certain times of the year. For example, you wouldn't adorn a summer wedding with Poinsettias (the Christmas flower), nor would you use daisies for a winter wedding. Also, although flowers can be shipped from anywhere to anywhere, they are far more affordable when in season.
Wedding Flowers Style
Your wedding flowers have to fit in with the wedding's theme. Are you having a formal wedding, church wedding, big, small, outdoor, totally different? No matter what type of wedding you are organizing flowers will play an important part in setting the scene and so must be chosen carefully.
Wedding Flowers Colors
The first question for this may be: What color should bridal bouquets be? The color of flowers you choose must not clash with the bridesmaids' dresses. Most weddings have a color that is used throughout all decorations including the bridesmaid's dresses, bridal bouquet, and other floral arrangements. The type of flowers you choose affects your color options so both choices should be made simultaneously.
Wedding Flowers Cost
This is a major consideration as the total cost of the wedding flowers is not limited to the bridal bouquet. Depending on the size of your wedding and the number of people attending, other flowers may be required such as corsages for the bride and groom's mothers, grandmothers, and any other special females at the ceremony; boutonnieres for the fathers, grandfathers, groomsmen, ushers, and any special males; flowers for the flower girls and ring bearers, readers, soloists, guest book hosts, and greeters. As a general rule, you should remember that you will need flowers for bouquets, buttonholes, hair ornaments, corsages, the ceremony, and the reception. That's a whole lot of flowers!
Coral Wedding Flowers are the most viable option when it comes to planning the wedding day, but some of the brides prefer dried flowers or artificial coral colored flowers.
