Wedding Flower Mistakes to Avoid

When it comes time to prep for potentially the biggest day of your entire life, there are a lot of things you’ll need to touch upon. One of those things will be getting your floral arrangements in order for your wedding day.

Whether it is for ceremonial arrangements or centerpieces on your dinner tables, you’ll need to make sure that everything is just right and avoid making these mistakes.

Don’t feast your eyes on the big, tall, scenic flower arrangements that might crowd the entire room. You’ll want the setting to look nice of course, but you’ll also want your guests to have room to see what’s going on throughout the ceremony. Whenever you deal with flowers, you should always trust your florist. They’re called a florist for a reason, and they’ll never steer you in the wrong direction. Communication is key, so let them know what your likes and dislikes are, and the expectations you have for your wedding and they’ll make it happen.

Another mistake you should avoid is not reusing ceremonial flower arrangements. Why not have the flower girl run back down the aisle after the wedding and collect the flower petals she dropped before. These can be used as centerpieces later on in the night. You don’t want to spend a boat load of money on all different kinds of flowers just to use them each for a short period of time.

Finally, you should always avoid booking your florist last. When couples begin the process of booking companies and vendors for their wedding, they generally go through multiple vendors before deciding on which is right.

The reason for this is because “window shopping” different vendors will enable these couples to receive different prices and options before they make a final decision. Make sure you check out all your options, but be sure to book your vendor at the right time.
