Wedding Planning 1

Where do you fit in? You need to be able to define your wedding style before you can accent your wedding with the most appropriate flowers and floral plans.

Certain wedding bouquet and centerpiece styles say formal, such as elaborate arrangements with white roses, gardenias, ranunculus, stephanotis, and lily of the valley. Others say informal, which includes anything other than roses and gardenias. An example of informal bridal flowers is a collection of brightly-colored Gerber daisies at a garden wedding. For an informal spring wedding, collections of tulips are a fitting choice for bouquets and centerpieces. At a casual backyard wedding, you might hold a bouquet of soft wildflowers.

Location plays a big part in your floral choice—happy white daisies at your garden wedding or birds of paradise at your island wedding, for example. The location will help define the formality of your flowers. For instance, a formal wedding at a lavish estate is going to call for a more elaborate bouquet style filled with upscale roses, orchids, and other blooms befitting your surroundings, not a bunch of wildflowers.

Once you decide on vision, style, and location, the next step is deciding what you will need to fulfill your wedding vision. The size of your shopping list, as well as the types of flowers you want, will determine the scope of your floral plans (and also your budget). If you require fifty centerpieces, for instance, that’s a lot of work for your floral design team, and it may be too much for you to take on as a DIY project. If, however, you need twenty centerpieces, you might be able to do it yourself. Here is an example of your average floral shopping list:

  • Bride’s bouquet
  • Bride’s tossing bouquet
  • Maid or matron of honor bouquet
  • Bridesmaids’ bouquets
  • Flower girl flowers
  • Mother of the bride flowers
  • Mother of the groom flowers
  • Grandmother and godmother flowers
  • Groom’s boutonniere
  • Best Man’s boutonniere
  • Groomsmen’s boutonnieres
  • Father of the Bride boutonniere
  • Centerpieces
  • Altar décor
  • Additional ceremony décor
  • Additional reception décor
  • Rose petals for décor
