Choosing THE Flowers

The date is set, the venue chosen, THE dress has been purchased. Wedding flowers come pretty high up a bride-to-be's ever growing (ever, ahem, changing) to-do list. And rightly so. The flowers you chose will be recorded on every photograph that's taken on your big day and are often the biggest decoration in terms of impact on the tables. The colours, shapes and smells of the blooms you choose will evoke wonderful memories. Locally-grown, in season British flowers are an increasingly popular choice.   Flowers to think about:
  1. Bride's bouquet/ hair flowers
  2. Bridesmaids’ bouquets/ wrist corsages
  3. Flower girls’ pomades/ wands/ head circlets
  4. Groom's button hole
  5. Ushers’ button holes
  6. Ladies' corsages
  7. Church flowers – vases/ pedestals/ arches
  8. Table/ venue decorations
      And once you have the date, the florist can help you work out which seasonal blooms can achieve the look you're after – whether that's vintage, retro, quirky, modern, traditional or simply lovely. The key is to find the right florist and someone who understands your vision of the day. It's important to let the florist know details such as your theme/ colours and if possible show them pictures of not only THE dress, but also what your husband-to-be is going to be wearing. Even grooms want in on the dressing up act, after all. If you've got any pictures of arrangements or bouquets you like, bring them along.   And think about smell too, or whether there's a sentiment you want the bouquet to hold.   Of course the biggest thing is just to relax and enjoy this special and exciting time because whatever happens, your wedding will be a wonderful celebration of your commitment to another.   By Leonie Butler
