You want your wedding flowers to be beautiful—and so does your florist. Here are a few expert tips for making that happen.

“There is nothing more disheartening for the bride and myself than when she comes in with her heart set on yellow peonies for an August wedding, only to find out that yellow peonies are just not naturally available in August. There are a ton of flowers available year-round, like roses, hydrangeas, carnations, alstroemeria, callas and orchids, just to name a few. Knowing just this one piece of information can make your flower plan go much more smoothly.”

Flower colors are never exact. Rely on your florist to help you understand the undertones of different varieties; for example, red ranunculus have orange undertones that stand out when paired with cool colors. Also remember that many of the photographs you see online or in magazines can be misleading; when the photographer is color-correcting for skin tone and lighting, it may adjust flower colors beyond what is realistic.”

Consider How the Flowers Will Photograph

“Your colors may be purple and white, but mixing two colors contrasting colors without any shading can look like polka dots in pictures. Instead you might want to add in lavender and gray green foliage to give it a softer look.”

Never skimp on your bridal bouquet. It is the one floral design that will be on your mantel, your bedside table, at your mother’s house, your in-laws’ house and on your desk at work in photos for the next 50 to 60 years—you had better like it!”

 

Know Your Budget

The most difficult and least productive meetings are the ones where no budget is given. You wouldn’t go to buy a car without telling the salesman in advance if you are in the market for a Lexus, Volvo or a Focus. We request in our very first phone conversation that a budget be provided at the meeting.”
