Let Your Personality Reflect in the Flowers

E.g. you can create some beautiful combinations of double or triple colors, like yellow and white, red and white, purple and white, blue and green, orange and pale yellow, and so on. You can choose these colors according to your jewelry and accessories, and your overall wedding theme.

Take Advice of the Florist

Some basics to remember

  • Less is more! Just a few flowers can add a splash of colors, fragrances and charm to your wedding, which has been already made beautiful with other elements.
  • Foliage too can be an excellent contributor to the floral decoration in your wedding. So, don’t forget to add a dash of greenery to the mishmash of other colors.
  • Find a florist that shares your vision.

Research Flower Types

If you are not able to understand what you really like, just looking at the beautiful pictures in these magazines can give you some idea about what you will prefer for your wedding. Visiting the local flower gardens is also a good idea. Learning about the different meanings and “language” of flowers is also helpful to you in making decision. Some classic wedding flowers with which you cannot go wrong are orchid, roses, lily of the valley, calla lily and peony.

Decide the Role of Flowers in Your Wedding
