The right floral arrangements can add a special flare to the décor of your event. Deciding on the right floral arrangements for your big day is one of the main checks off your planning list. The process of choosing the right floral designs can depend on your budget, color scheme or theme, the season, and your unique style.
A budget can seem very confining when your Pinterest board dreams are bigger than your wallet. However, a set budget can help determine which floral pieces you will want to focus your funds on. You will have bouquets, boutonnieres, center pieces, and other floral accent arrangements that you will need to prioritize. If you have a particular arrangement in mind, but it is out of your price range, you should work with your florist to see if there is a more cost effective flower choice that will still achieve your desired look.
Most brides will design their floral arrangements to reflect and add to their overall color scheme or theme. This allows your floral pieces to enhance the overall design of your event. The bridal bouquet is very important because it will be showcased in many, if not all, of the photography. You want to make sure that you choose a design that adds to your desired look. This depends largely on your own individual style. There are so many different types and colors of flowers, so you are sure to find something that fits meets your needs.
Flowers grow in different seasons. This is important to keep in mind when you are picking out your floral designs. Some flowers such as peonies are seasonal and can only be found at certain times of the year, where other flowers like roses are available year-round. Seasonal flowers can sometimes be more expensive because of the high demand during their available season. Here is a helpful link that details the cost, season, meanings and color choices of some of the most popular wedding flowers: Guide to Wedding Flowers.
