Flowers and your Wedding
Most brides feel that the right florals make her wedding stand out. Because florals are such an important element it is important to find the right florist or floral designer. The floral designer will work with you to ensure that the florals compliment the style of your wedding, your dress, and that you love them.
Research the floral designer that you are interested in having create your wedding florals by viewing their website and/or blog and see what they have created for their previous clients. This will help give you an idea of their style. Feel free to check out bridal magazines for floral ideas too. Take the pictures that you love with you when you meet with the floral designer so that they can get an idea of your style and taste.
Florals are approximately 10% of your wedding budget and include all the florals for the bridal party, the parents, the ceremony, and reception centerpieces. Knowing how much you have to spend on florals will assist the floral designer in helping you choose the best flowers that fit your budget.
