At the Great British Florist we’ve supplied hundreds of weddings, in all shapes, styles and sizes and all around the country! Through of years of experience we’ve learned a few things about Wedding Flowers that we’d love to pass on!1. Re-use your flowers
Move your Flowers from the Ceremony to the Reception. Any jars or jugs of flowers can easily be placed at the reception to add to the flowery loveliness, maybe on the tables or on a side board. It’s a shame to use them just once.
2. Re-purpose the Bridal Bouquets
At the reception, your bridesmaids won’t have a need for their flower bouquets, so why not use them in vases as wedding centerpiece ideas or as decorations for the cake table?
3. Go Green
For a simple, yet elegant look to your wedding, use lots of greenery instead of flowers. Leaves can be just as stunning as a bouquet. They provide texture and weight to arrangements and will set your wedding flowers apart from typical arrangements. In the UK we grow such a diverse variety of greenery, in all shades of green- from the muted tones of Eucalyptus to the light green tones of Pittosporum.
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the lovely bouquet of flowers that you sent to my daughter today. She's been shielding since February so these made her day. She was delighted that there were no lilies in the flowers as she suffers with hayfever. Thank you - Helen P
Just to say a lovely thank you for the beautiful arrangement of flowers for the funeral sheaf I ordered for my fathers funeral. He was 91 and always interested in the environment and wildflowers. The arrangement was just perfect. Many thanks once again - Magda B
My family arranged for you to deliver flowers for my birthday last Monday and I have to say that they are the best flowers I have ever received! After a week they are still looking amazing and are likely to do so for several days yet. Thank you very much! - Mary B
