Most brides choose to carry flowers on their big day. Traditionally, the wedding bouquet was not carried for aesthetic purposes; fragrant flowers and herbs were carried to mask the smell of body odour when bathing was not a daily occurrence and also to ward off evil spirits! Today, fresh flowers are used to add a natural element to the proceedings, compliment the colours and style of the day and also give the nervous bride (and bridesmaids) something to do with their hands!
When deciding on your blooms, think about whether you would like to keep them subtle or make more of a statement…
Think about colour, texture, fragrance, the season, your favourite flowers and family traditions, the style of your venue and dress, as well as the overall feel of your day, be it casual and relaxed or a more formal event. When coming to meet your florist be sure to convey all of this information to give us the best possible chance to create your perfect bouquet. Bring lots of pictures along too. Even if you don’t know why you like a certain image, it will help us to get inside your head and realise your vision. For a beach wedding you might choose a natural and rustic hand-tied posy of seasonal summer flowers- perfect for a romantic wind-swept look.
Finally, if budget is a concern, try not to scrimp on the flowers you carry. The bridal bouquet is your ultimate wedding day accessory and will feature in a good proportion of your photographs, so make sure you get it right and try to cut back on something else which perhaps wont feature in so many photographs!
