Three Things You Should Think About When Selecting Your Wedding Flowers

As someone who is about to walk down the aisle for their wedding, you might already be overwhelmed when you think about all the things you have to do to make sure your special day goes on without a hitch. When thinking about the flowers you're using that day, you might not know where to start. However, if you use the ideas below, your wedding flowers will look great, and you might even be able to save a little money.

Consider Complementary Colors

One of the most important thing to do when you are thinking about the flowers you'll order is to decide their colors. You may have colors picked out for your wedding, and you might want your flowers to match the colors to pick out. For instance, if your colors are white and yellow, you may want your flowers to be yellow to match the dresses in your wedding party. However, think about how the wedding pictures will look; yellow flowers would fade into the yellow of bridesmaid dresses.

Therefore, when selecting flowers for your wedding, choose complementary flowers that will provide a striking contrast instead. Red, for instance, might be a gorgeous choice if your bridesmaids are wearing yellow.

Use Feathers

To make your bouquet stand out even more, it might be a good idea to use colored feathers. Feathers can provide a sense of whimsy and are a unique addition to any bouquet. They can be incorporated into the bouquet as if they were flowers to create a surprising and different look. Feathers are typically a bit more affordable than real flowers, so if your budget isn't very big, feathers can also allow you to spend a little less.

Use Bouquets as Centerpieces

If you are indeed looking to save money on your flowers, one thing you can do is to repurpose the bouquets of you and your wedding party. After the wedding ceremony, you can have the florist on hand to take the bouquets and insert them into the centerpieces at the tables where you and your party will be sitting. That way, you can still keep your bouquets when the day is done.

If you make use of the information laid out here, you'll be able to have wedding flowers you can be happy with. Consult florists in your local area to find out more specific ways they might be able to help you with your wedding day.
