Wedding flowers are an integral part of your wedding day, it is one aspect of your wedding that ties so many other aspects together. These other aspects include your venue, the style of your wedding, the colors of your wedding.
To find inspiration on how to use flowers for your wedding, what flowers to use or even colors, try looking through magazines and websites, floral books and even a romantic trip to a botanic garden.
When meeting with your florist make sure that you know your color scheme. Florist will often ask this question early on in your meeting. With this information they will be able to refer you to the right flowers for your day. Swatches of your bridesmaids dresses if you have them may also be helpful. The florist is there to help you execute your vision for your special day, make sure as with any of your vendors that you connect with them and they clearly understand your vision and your budget.
Always go back to your wedding budget, flowers are very beautiful and you can easily surpass your floral budget if not careful. Flowers usually take about 10% of your wedding budget, so if you have a $20,000 dollar wedding budget the amount for your wedding flowers would be $2000. If flowers are the must have item for your wedding and you end up spending a little more, you may have to save in another area of your wedding.
