One of the huge pieces of your big day is your wedding flowers. While you’re planning your wedding, you want to make sure that you’ve taken into consideration the flowers for the day. You have to choose wedding vendors for a variety of items, including your flowers. One of the biggest things you need to consider is the budget you want to allot for the flowers. Do you want to go with artificial or real? Who needs to have flowers?
All of these questions play into what type of flowers you’ll have and how many. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Make sure you decide on what you want to spend on flowers. Are you a true flower lover? Then you’re going to probably want to allot more to flowers than the person who is not as big on flowers as decoration. Pick your budget up front to help guide in type and amount.
Who Needs Flowers?
Decide on who will carry flowers and where you want them to be displayed throughout the wedding and reception. Are you going to use flowers as centerpieces on reception tables or are you going to go with candles or lights? Make a list of those who will need them to carry and to wear on their clothing to distinguish them from others at the ceremony.
Silk and Real Can Go Together
Remember, you can always use a mixture to keep your budget in line. If you prefer your bouquet to be real but need to cut the budget, your bridesmaids can have silk arrangements. Also remember that real flowers can have issues on the day of the wedding so silk may be a better solution to have peace of mind.
