Floral Tips

  • Choose flowers that are in season – This will not only save you money but will mean you will have fresher, beautiful flowers.

  • Bigger doesn't always mean better – make sure the size of your bouquet compliments the dresses. A large bouquet may overshadow a simpler dress, while a small bouquet may be nearly invisible among an elaborate, bigger dress.

  • Simple is best – especially for your centerpieces. Keeping it simple will eliminate extra cost from work spent on intricate designs.

  • Know your location – Find out if your florist has done any events at your location before, they may be able to show you photos of previous arrangements. If not, get them to go take a look so they are familiar with the area they have to work with. If that isn't possible make sure you bring plenty of photos of the location so you can prepare for the space.

  • If you are keeping your bouquets in water be sure to dry the stems before giving them to the bridesmaids – you don't want water stains on the dresses!
