If you are looking for the perfect bouquet for your wedding, you will discover that there is an awful lot of choice. Both in the form and in the types of flowers in the bouquet. I want to give you some 7 tips if you are going to look for your wedding bouquet.
Confirm your location, type of ceremony and the wedding dress. The type of wedding you will have as well as the dress you are going to wear are essential to help you choose the right bouquet. You can choose wild flower arrangements if your dress is more minimalistic. If your dress has many decorations and small details, choose a bouquet that does not cover too many of these details.
Choose the right color! If you are crazy about a all white bouquet, make sure it is in the same shade as your wedding dress for a perfect match.
Size does matter! If you are a bit smaller, choose a bouquet that does not overshadow you. Likewise, if you are a tall bride, consider a drop bouquet. If you are a fuller bride, a lush bouquet would be ideal.
Set a budget and stick to it. Flowers can become expensive, so when you plan your wedding budget, research and think up a realistic amount. Also ask the florist for advice. Give especially to the florist which flowers must absolutely come in, so that your budget can best be determined.
Know your flowers. As you may know, certain flowers have certain meanings. The dandelion, for example, represents faithfulness and happiness, while a pale pink rose means grace and joy. The gardenia means joy and the hydrangea perseverance. You may not want to know, but the marigold, oleander and yellow hyacinth may indicate negative meanings.
Seasonal flowers. Get more value for money when you pick flowers that are in season. Ask your florist which flowers are present in your season.
There is no right or wrong! Big dreams? Let them come! Do you like quirky, winding flowers that might look weird in classic bouquets? Do not worry. Each bouquet should reflect your personal preferences, but you should also be open to suggestions from the florist. Then magical things can happen!
