Making Your Flower Selections

Choosing flowers for your wedding is one of the best parts of wedding planning. Your flowers will be on display for all to see and tend to take a spotlight in most of your pictures. Pinterest may be a good starting place for research, but you can’t just rely on what you see in pictures. Making your flower selections requires some thought and some research and with a few tips, you can be well on your way to selecting something that works for your particular needs.

Understanding the Meaning: Different flowers mean different things: a rose can be for love, for example, but the color selection may change that definition. While you’re not expected to know al the meanings behind every flower selection, it’s a good idea to decide what you want your flowers to say and discuss your intentions with your florist who will have a good idea of how to share your intentions through the arrangements. If the meaning behind the flowers isn’t a critical factor for you, let your florist know that as well.

Deciding on Colors: Matching your color scheme with your flowers isn’t necessary, but it can be quite a nice touch to have all elements of your wedding flow together. If you have colors already selected, be sure to let your florist know, and bring along any color swatches that may help you better define your vision. While flowers come in many varieties and colors, your flower choices and season may limit the options available. We can provide suggestions that will complement your theme even if an exact match isn’t practical.

A Flawless Presentation: Discuss your venue and the size of your wedding with your florist so that they can provide you with suggestions on how many arrangements you will need. While it’s hard to have too many flowers, not having enough can make your room feel empty and under-dressed. Trust your florist to give you the ideas that will help bring your event to life.


Your floral arrangements can have an impact on the overall feeling and style of your event, so it’s important to put some time into making the right selections. Thankfully, your florist is a partner that can help you get to the right decisions. Once your florist has an understanding of the vibe you’re after, the color scheme that matches, and the location and size of your wedding, they will be able to come up with ideas for the arrangements that will add beauty and elegance to your wedding.
