8 things to consider when choosing your Wedding Flowers

With the rise of Instagram and Pinterest there is increasing emphasis on having the most 'picture perfect' florals. We have put together some of the key things to consider when choosing your wedding flowers.

1. Budget
Before speaking with any florist, one the most important decisions to make is to agree a budget. How much are you happy to spend on flowers? Fresh flowers will only last for the wedding day so it can be difficult to justify the cost to your groom (or at least it was with my groom!) however they will be a focal point of the wedding and will appear in almost all of your photographs.

2. Colour Scheme
By the time you come to choosing your flowers you will have most likely set a colour scheme so it is important to consider how your florals will match the rest of your wedding. If you have already chosen your bridesmaid dresses it can be a good idea to show them to your florist so that they are able to colour match your flowers to their dresses. Alternatively, you could follow Meghan Markle's example and stick to a neutral flower colour scheme.

3. Seasonality
Your choice of flowers will vary depending on the time of year and which flowers are in season, for example peonies are a popular choice but are in season May/June. If you have a long engagement one tip would be to visit your florist the year before your wedding to get an idea of the flowers in season at that time.

4. Real or fake?
If you are worried about the cost of flowers, choosing false flowers can be a cost saving alternative. There has been a trend for foam flowers although these aren't the most environmentally friendly and there has been a recent rise in the use of dried flowers. Another cost saving tip would be to choose lots of foliage for your bouquet rather than expensive florals.

5. Style
There are a whole host of bouquet styles and it is important to choose a style that suits your dress and your theme. If you are having a rustic wedding then this would suit a loose, wild bouquet, whereas a destination wedding might suit something more exotic. It is also worth considering your height when you choose your bouquet, for example I had a cascading bouquet and being only 5 foot tall it was important it wasn't too long so didn't trail on the ground!

6. Venue decoration
Are you planning to have floral decorations at your venue or just bouquets? Floral displays can transform a venue but they should be factored into your budget as it can get expensive! It is worth considering how you could use flowers in multiple locations, for example a flower wall could provide a back drop when you say your vows and could then also be used as a back drop in photographs for your guests! 

7. Who for?
Who will be having flowers? Traditionally the bridal party will all have bouquets and the groomsmen have buttonholes. Do you also want to provide corsages for the mums, and do you have flower girls? 

8. Traditions
Are you planning to throw your bouquet? Some brides have an extra bouquet to throw or borrow a bridesmaids for the toss! Often groom's also give out bouquets of flowers as thank you gifts to the mums and any other people that they would like to thank.
