In terms of their physical size, the wedding flowers are likely to be one of the smallest aspects of your big day. However, it is often the case that great things come in small packages! In fact, the emotional significance and decorative splendour of your wedding flowers will undoubtedly ensure them a leading role in your special day. As Emma Goldman once famously said “I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds round my neck.”
Flowers can symbolise intense moods and emotions, making them highly suitable for a wedding environment. Moreover, it is widely recognised that individual flowers hold their own symbolic meanings, such as hope, love, and sacrifice. As such, introducing a select array of flowers to your wedding day can allow you to celebrate the unique, symbolic ideas which are most personal to you and your fiancé.
However, if you don’t know your lily from your lavender, or even your flower from your flour, then ticking-off the flower order will be a particularly challenging aspect of the wedding plan. In fact, if you know very little about flowers and wedding traditions, then trying to pick out suitable flowers for the members of your wedding party will seem like a minefield. Thankfully, this helpful section of the website is here to offer advice and guidance on choosing suitable wedding flowers for all aspects of your wedding. This guide will discuss everything you need to know about choosing flowers, such as how to best approach your florist, and how to save money on your flower bill. Moreover, this section will touch upon the most important floral aspect of any wedding (especially important for any single guests in attendance) – the bouquet!
