When it comes to your wedding, it should be up to you and your spouse to decide every aspect of the day, including the floral arrangements that will be at the ceremony and reception. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t listen to some advice before making any final decision. While there isn’t necessarily a right or wrong way to do things, the following are a few mistakes you may want to avoid making while shopping for flowers.
Before falling in love with any centerpiece, make sure you try to imagine what it will look like in your wedding venue. Rather than become fixated with how it looks on a specific table setting, try to decide whether or not it would go well with the entire room or outdoor area where you will be hosting your wedding.
If you aren’t sure about which type of flowers you want, don’t make the mistake of not trusting your florist. Even if you have a pretty good idea of what you do and don’t want, make sure you allow for a little flexibility. Your florist may be able to present a new idea that you had never thought of, so you should definitely leave room for changes to the plan you’ve already come up with.
Finally, don’t forget to reuse arrangements from the ceremony during the reception. You can take an altar piece and place it on a buffer table for example. No flower should go to waste during your wedding day, so you should simply let someone know you want the arrangements from the ceremony to be moved to the reception venue.
By following these tips you can avoid some common wedding flower mistakes and make the planning process go that much easier.
