Choosing flowers for a wedding is often one of the last items ticked off a wedding to-do list. But it shouldn’t be.
Wedding flowers are actually a staple for weddings—they can create the ambiance or enhance the theme. Plus, your bridal bouquet is likely going to be seen in every photo you take! Because of that, wedding flowers deserve the same consideration finding the perfect dress or venue would.
Below we list some of the top benefits to choosing your wedding flowers early during your wedding planning process.
Helps Set the Tone for Your Theme and Venue Décor
One of the things brides (and grooms) consider when planning their weddings is the overall theme. This usually involved the colour scheme, décor, and of course, the flowers. The type of flowers you choose can really tie everything together. Adventurous couples may want an outdoor wedding combined with all that nature has to offer. Flowers for such a ceremony greatly differ than those for a romantic, intimate wedding set in a cathedral.
Visualize the entire set-up of the special day. The species and number of flowers required will depend on the venue and the number of guests. Your wedding florist will be able to design the arrangements and bouquets based on the theme and venue you have in mind.
Helps You to Stay in Budget
Let’s be honest: wedding aren’t cheap! In fact, wedding costs are notorious for surpassing the original budget calculations.
As a general rule of thumb, allow at least 10% of your overall budget to the flowers. By knowing the type of wedding flowers that you want and if they will be in season at the time of your wedding, you will be far ahead in the budget game.
It’s important to have a firm budget in mind when consulting with your wedding florist. If you want grand floral statements, be sure to convey that with your florist.
Easy and Stress-Free Organization
Planning your wedding should be as enjoyable as the day itself. Tackling the flower choices and ordering in the beginning stages of planning can help ease the stress. In fact, early flower planning will help you to mentally coordinate the venue, theme, and style of the wedding.
Leaving this to the last minute may have you rushing through the choices available and not being able to have the flowers you desire.
