Flower Power | 3 Flower Tactics to Elevate the Romantic Setting of your Wedding

Posted on: 21 August 2015

Choosing flowers for your wedding is perhaps the most important element to establish the level of romanticism you desire. Soft neutral flowers across your wedding chapel or reception venue will not only create the fantasy of romance to delight your guests, but they will also create unforgettable wedding memories. Whether you choose flowers online or decide on flower delivery from your local florist, use these flower arrangement tactics to make your wedding unforgettable. 

Plan your Theme and Style in Advance

Your wedding theme will determine your flower concept, so you can choose flowers that complement the rest of your wedding décor perfectly. For example, if you have a royal purple wedding theme, your flower arrangements could include fresh orchids and white lilies. Take pictures of your wedding venue to your florist to decide on the flower arrangement styles in each setting. You may want to visit your florist a few days before the wedding –– this will help you clarify all expectations and make last minute changes, if necessary. 

Embody your Own Taste

Since it's your wedding day, the flower arrangements should embody your personality. For example, if you like minimalistic flower arrangements, you'll want to choose neutral and softer flower shades to blend in with your overall wedding theme, rather than having your flowers boldly stand out. Tulips, lilies, gardenias and peonies look beautiful in light neutral shades and add a delicate touch to your wedding. If you like bold colours that stand out, you can choose red roses, purple sweet peas and pink hydrangeas to brighten your wedding decor. Your individual personality and style should reflect your flower arrangements. 

Know Your Numbers

You certainly don't want to visit a florist unprepared, especially when it comes to deciding the quantity of flowers you need. It's almost impossible for you to decide how many flowers you will need on your own, so your florist can help with that. But you must know the number of tables you have in your reception venue, the number of guests expected, the number of groomsmen and bridesmaids, the number of family members who need flowers and the number of locations to place flower arrangements. Getting all this information in advance will help you put your best foot forward when it comes to flower planning for your wedding.

Don't forget to find out whether your florist provides flower delivery straight to the venue  –– this will save you (or a family member) a lot of hassle on the big day.
