Flower Basics

by Mary Liu, VowsForever.com

When choosing your wedding day flowers, there are multiple variables to consider - color, style, scent, size, availability, etc.

Color & Style

What is your color scheme? Is your wedding casual or formal? Do you have a favorite flower you wish to include in all your arrangements? Answer these questions before choosing your wedding flowers. Remember, if you can't find flowers in the colors you need, florists can dye them.

Scent

Choosing a fragrant flower like a gardenia, freesia, or magnolia will bring back memories of your special day when you smell them in the future.

Size

Are you tall or petite? Is your dress simple or ornate? Are the other decorations simple or extravagant? If you are petite or your dress is ornate, carry a smaller bouquet. If your decorations are simple, large arrangements would be beautiful.

Availability

When are you getting married - winter, spring, summer, fall? Be sure to research which flowers will be in season.
