Underscore the drama of your wedding with the right flowers. Find a professional who will take the time to learn about you and the ambience you want to create. Six months before the wedding is not too early to select your florist, especially if you’re planning an elaborate wedding. When you talk with your florist, be guided by these elements: the style and mood of your wedding, the season or environment, your budget, and what you like.
You’ll need a number of floral pieces for your wedding: centerpieces for reception tables, sprays for candelabras, corsages for those who assist with various reception duties, floral “tokens” for special guests, and bouquets for bridesmaids and yourself. Ask your florist for guidance. His/her artistry, knowledge of wedding protocol and ability to listen to your needs will ensure that you’ll get a good value for your money, and have the perfect floral accents to enhance your wedding day. Enjoy this pick of fresh floral pictures from a few of our florists.

Submitted by ClinkIt’s your big day, you’ll be wearing a big white dress… you probably don’t need a sign around your neck that says, “I’m the bride!” But you can put a sign around your chair and create yet another must see detail.
Chair accents can be as simple as chair jackets, or they can be unique, personalized and eye-catching with some floral touches! Here are some ways to make your seats the best in the house:
- Mr. and Mrs. signs – This is the first glimpse of your new name in print. Paper signs made to match your stationary can be attached to your chairs with a gorgeous ribbon in your color palette.
- Floral décor – Wedding florists can craft your initials out of flowers to hang on your chairs. Or create small wreaths to hang from ribbon on your chairs.
- Bride and Groom signs – You can find these signs at wedding boutiques and web sites everywhere. Pick something that represents the style of your wedding. Have a rustic feel? Have your names branded on pieces of wood. Going for the drama? Have a calligrapher handwrite your names on mirrors and attach them to your chairs. If you are having a Spring garden wedding, you can use vintage tin signs.
Keep in mind it can be something you can use for your memory book. Make it interesting, have fun making them.
With spring right around the corner, pink is in. From your flowers, the cake, the tuxedos and down to the linens, there are so may ways to incorporate your colors without over doing it. Get inspired and enjoy this plethora of pink photos!

You can’t help but to enjoy the views of spring flowers. With warm inviting flowers and perfect weather, it’s a great time for weddings. Please enjoy these spring photos from WOW Factor Design.
Roses, tulips and peonies are just some of the few flowers that brides love to add to their wedding. From the ceremony to centerpieces, flowers are a visual element that add elegance to any wedding. Don’t be intimidated if you don’t know the difference between an orchid or a lily; we’re here to help!
How do you express what you want when you don’t know the names of the flowers you like? Pictures are the answer. Taking pictures to a flower consultation is the best way to go! Samples of your wedding color choices, swatches from your linens and pictures of your dress and the wedding party wardrobe are always a big help.
With this information in hand, your florist will be able to suggest floral combinations and artistic treatments to create beautiful floral complements for your wedding.
You may want to consider the traditional meanings behind flowers as you make your selections. For example, hyacinth signifies constancy. Some herbs, too, are important in bridal lore. In medieval Germany, brides wore rosemary to guard against pregnancy!
For non-traditional wedding flowers, consider including unusual greenery. Asparagus fern and multicolored coleus are attractive in summer bouquets. Holly and pine sprays are popular for December nuptials. Stalks of golden-brown wheat are a sentimental touch for harvest brides.
With all of your flower selections, be guided by the advice of your florist and remember, if budget is a consideration, flowers and greenery in season are more abundant and generally less expensive. Also, be sure the flowers you select will hold their shape throughout the day. Tulips, for example, look lovely when fresh, but by the end of the day in Texas heat they will open fully, loosing their normal appearance.
Some things to consider when choosing flowers are:
- Choosing flowers that bloom in the months around your wedding may be less expensive because they are more abundant
- All white wedding flowers are a trend of the past. Infuse your wedding theme with color through bright blooms in your bouquets and centerpieces.
- Your Dress
- Tie together your ensemble by accenting it with a great bouquet. Add embellishments such as pearls and crystals to your bouquet to make it a coordinating accessory.
- Ceremony Location
- Check with your ceremony location for any possible restrictions. Repurpose your ceremony flowers for your reception if possible to save on flower costs.
- Reception Location
- The size of your reception hall may call for a bolder more dramatic arrangement. Take into consideration if you have an indoor or outdoor venue and what flowers and greenery are at your reception location. Again, check with the reception venue for any possible restrictions.
- Floral centerpieces are a great way to incorporate color into your reception. Centerpieces can be large and dramatic, low and simple or a combination of the two.
- Personal Flowers
- Traditionally, wedding ceremonies include bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids, corsages for the mothers and grandmothers and guest corsages, and boutonnieres for the groom, groomsmen, fathers and grandfathers.
- Adding flowers to a traditional white wedding cake is a beautiful and elegant way to add color.

When you are selecting your florist, be sure to ask about special packages. Also, ask to see photos of their work, not just arrangements from a catalog, as well as references. Expect to spend about 9 percent of your budget on flowers. Once you have decided on the right florist, it is always a good idea to request that your florist give you an itemized bill in advance. Make sure that you in turn supply the florist with the names, addresses and times for delivery of your bouquet, boutonnieres, corsages and floral arrangements.

Wedding flower color trends for 2011 are primarily going to be earthy tones with accents of contrasting embellishments. Shades of champagne, blush, apricot, and buttercream will intertwine for romantic-vintage style weddings. Natural embellishments such as champagne ostrich feathers or white stones create an earthy appeal to the decor. By adding simple adornments of antique lace sashes around the vases or wrapping the bouquets with an elegant brocade ribbon, you can add the finishg touch for a vintage look.
Another rising beautiful color palette is celadon, lilac and slate. Flowers that are naturally celadon are chestnuts, hydrangeas, lady’s mantle, lady slipper orchids, roses, hypericum berries and greenery to name a few. Lilac is a soft purple tone that gives earthiness and color to the designs. Creating softness against the lighter celadon blooms. Slate adornments that create a misty look are incorporated for a refreshing feel.

Here’s a wedding flower tip that is not only green for the environment, but also can put a bit of green in you pocket.
Order locally grown, in-season flowers, preferably organic, which are grown without chemical pesticides and insecticides. Also, locally grown, in-season flowers are usually going to be less expensive.
After the wedding is over, the flowers can be donated to a nursing home, hospital, or
assisted living home.
Another idea is to save your organic flowers and make potpourri. Fill cellophane bags with the mixture and send them to guests with your thank-you notes.
Decorate with potted plants which can also be reused. Just have your florist insert some cut flowers to match your color scheme and decor. Often you can even rent the potted plants, again saving you money.Tags: green weddings, potpourri, potted plants, wedding flowers
