Are you finding yourself stuck on what to do what your wedding flowers? If so, you’re probably considering just handing out the decision to your florist, and calling it a day. However, before you hand over the reins, consider trying to come up with something on your own. It’s not too difficult when you know where to go for inspiration, and in the end you’ll feel quite special that you’ve created such beautiful floral arrangements.
Where to Look for Inspiration
Wedding floral arrangements are everywhere and that means you have a ton to choose from to find the ones best for your wedding theme.
Here are just a few of the places to find sample floral arrangements and bouquets:
- Bridal Magazines – It’s likely you’ve already invested in a few of these, but it’s unlikely that you’ve taken a really good look at all of the floral arrangements and bouquets included. Buy some magazines, if you haven’t already, or start flipping through the ones you already have again. Pay particular attention to all of the flowers in the magazines, and start to either color copy, or cut out the ones you like. Create a small scrapbook of the ones that you like the most to show your florist. While you may not know the type of flowers they are, your florist will.
- Pinterest – This social networking site is most popular among women, and many of these women are either getting married, in a bridal party, or just love wedding themes images. Create an account on the site, look through the thousands of wedding floral arrangements and bouquets on the site, and start pinning them to your board. When you’ve found a few you like, invite your florist to see them. She can help you identify the specific flowers and either copy ones you see, or create a unique one bringing different flowers together.
How to Match Flowers to Your Wedding
Many brides find flowers they like the look of, but they don’t naturally grow in the color they would like them to be. Well, that’s no problem at all because many flowers can be dyed to your desired color, especially if the flowers come naturally in white.
Leave the Arranging to the Expert
Now, that you have the flowers you want in your arrangements, and you’ve solved the problem of them not coordinating with your wedding, the next task is putting them together, so they look neat and sweet. This is the part that should be left to the expert – the florist. While many brides do make their own arrangements, it’s usually done with much frustration and redo’s that many brides, such as yourself, do not have the time for right before wedding day. Not to mention the patience it takes when arranging – you just aren’t at your optimal patience level when you are trying to make sure everything else is going well with the wedding.
Check Off Flower Arrangements
Once you have given the florist your floral desires for your wedding, you can go ahead and take that off the list. Ah. What a great feeling, isn’t it?
