Knowing some simple tips on how to choose your wedding flowers will help ensure that you are getting the floral arrangements you have been dreaming about. At InStyle Floor Wraps, they understand how important flower arrangements can be for creating an elegant and memorable wedding. That is why their team has put together some simple tips for selecting the right wedding flowers.

Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Flowers

Some simple tips on how to choose your wedding flowers are:

1. Make a Flower Budget

The first step in picking flowers for any wedding is determining the size of the budget available. While most couples tend to spend about 8-10% of their total wedding budget on flowers, the budget should be set to reflect the types of flowers you want to order and how many arrangements are needed. The bigger the budget, the more elaborate the designs and types of flowers you will be able to choose from.

2. Do Your Homework

Before meeting with a florist, it is always a good idea to take some time to figure out what types of flowers you like. Make sure to learn the names of the flowers, as well as to consider what types of bouquets and arrangements you would like to incorporate into the wedding.

3. Use Your Colour Scheme

If you are unsure about what flowers will work well for your wedding, try to think in terms of colour options to help narrow down your choices. While the flowers do not have to be an exact match to the rest of the decor, choosing blooms that complement your colour scheme can help create a more cohesive, polished look. If you have your heart set on your flowers perfectly matching your wedding colours, consider showing your florist fabric swatches or photos of the decor so they can find the closest match possible.

4. Pull Inspiration from the Venue

The wedding venue can play a big part in influencing your floral decisions. Consider choosing flowers that will work well with the venue, such as wildflowers for an outdoor space or white orchids for a ballroom. It is also a good idea to keep in mind the type of tables being used at the reception to help influence the shape and style of the centerpieces.

5. Embrace the Season

Make sure to consider the types of flowers that are normally in bloom during your wedding season. While it is possible to use flowers that are out of season, out-of-season blooms might be difficult to find and can end up costing quite a bit more.
