The majority of people who learn floral arrangements are quite interested in wedding floral decoration seemingly because wedding flowers dominate a very high percentage of flower arranging business in the market and also the image about wedding is quite beautiful and attractive especially compared with funerals. Learning wedding flowers not only help expand your flower business opportunities but also contribute to enhancing your skill of floral designing.

As you may know, wedding floral decoration requires a very wide range of designs and also skills only because wedding flowers require a broad range of arrangements with high end decorations. This means that in order to learn wedding floral decorations, it is quite necessary to earn a variety of design concept as well as a wide range of skills that are not required for a regular kind of floral arrangements.

Wedding flowers usually remind us of bridal bouquets, corsage and pomanders etc. However these designs are hand-held or worn by a bride and they represent only a small portion of entire range of wedding flower market. Therefore learning only such small arrangements contribute to only small portion of wedding flowers and it is not enough to offer total services of wedding floral decorations.

Concretely speaking, under mentioned floral arrangements are used for weddings in addition to bouquets, corsage and pomanders:

*Group A:

Flower Basket
Centerpiece Arrangement
Main Table Arrangement
Wedding Cake Decoration

*Group B:

Candle Decoration
Central Main/Altar Decoration
Wreath Decoration

*Group C:

Arch shape design
Chair Decoration

Quite frankly speaking it is very difficult to learn above arrangements within a short period of time. Therefore it is wise to focus on a few designs by picking up mandatory arrangements from the above designs. If you have no idea about the choice of designs, it MAY be a good idea to start from Group A. After completing group A, why not proceed to Group B ? Group C could come as final arrangements you can learn.
