It’s beginning to feel like wedding season again. As you plan your special day, Flower Works is here to help you choose the floral designs that will make this day everything you dreamed it would be. From a small elopement or an intimate gathering to an outdoor celebration with family and friends, incorporating just the right floral pieces can turn your special day into the moment of your dreams. The following are just a few of the ways you can use flowers to make a statement.
Gather Some Inspiration
Start gathering some inspiration by researching wedding trends and browsing photos on Pinterest. Make a note of colors, styles, designs, and textures that resonate with your own idea for your wedding. You can send these photos to your florist to help clarify your vision. Use the time researching to become familiar with popular wedding flower choices such as hydrangea, roses, lilies, ranunculus, and peonies, to name just a few. Some more fragrant choices include sweet peas, lilacs, jasmine, and freesias. Ensure your florist knows if there are floral trends that you do not want, such as ornamental grasses.
Use Flowers That Complement Your Color Palette
Your flowers do not necessarily need to match your color palette exactly, but they should complement your overall color and design theme. Use fabric swatches and photos to help your florist match the colors you desire. Many flowers such as carnations and roses are available in a wide variety of colors, while anemones and peonies may be more limited. Keep in mind the floral selection available in the season you plan to have your wedding.
Match Your Flowers With Your Wedding Style
Generally, you want your floral design to match your wedding style. If you have an informal gathering, you may want looser garden-style floral pieces that incorporate natural elements and even wildflowers. A flower crown is a beautiful addition to an outdoor celebration or an intimate elopement. An arrangement of elegant calla lilies sets the tone for a small formal wedding. Think about the words you would use to describe your vision to your florist (modern, rustic, boho, glamorous); this will help them create the floral design to match that vision.
