Choosing the perfect flowers for your wedding is like adding a dash of enchanting fairy dust to your magical day. Not only do they brighten up the venue, but they also set the romantic ambiance and the aesthetic charm of your wedding. As you embark on the fragrant journey of choosing your wedding flowers, here are some petal-perfect tips that will guide you towards blooming bliss:
Creating a Floral Symphony with Your Wedding Aesthetic
Start by immersing yourself in your wedding’s overall aesthetic. Your wedding is the canvas of your love story and every element, including the flowers, should paint this vivid picture. Infusing personal elements such as cherished family heirlooms, memories of an unforgettable trip, or cherished moments with your partner will add a unique touch to your wedding’s floral landscape.
Think about your color palette and what it communicates about your special day. A vibrant, bold floral theme will infuse energy and a sense of joy, while softer pastels resonate with tranquil elegance and refined sophistication.
The Beauty of Seasonal Blossoms and Savvy Substitutions
The seasonal availability of flowers plays a crucial role in your floral selection. Each season offers a unique array of blossoms:
- Autumn weddings with rich earthy tones can include dahlias and celosias.
- Winter weddings could sparkle with amaryllises and anemones.
- Summer weddings can be brightened up with cosmos, gardenias, hydrangeas and sunflowers.
- Spring weddings, with the widest variety of blooms, can bask in the beauty of peonies and tulips.
And for the couples who dream of a flower that may not be in season during their wedding, fret not! Our expert florists at Weddingly can recommend delightful substitutes that closely resemble your dream flower in shape, structure, color, or fragrance.
Designing Floral Magic with Your Venue
The venue of your wedding plays a significant role in your floral design. During a site visit to your wedding venue with your Weddingly floral designer, you’ll start visualizing the floral vision and flow of the event. Do keep in mind the venue’s décor restrictions and also consider the existing elements of your venue, such as the carpet pattern, room color, or the style of the chandeliers.
