Set A Specific Budget
Alright, so you probably put a budget in place long ago. However, if your budget just says "flowers", there's room for improvement.
First, decide where you'll use flowers. You'll likely want bouquets, boutonnieres, and reception centerpieces.
You may also opt for extras, such as flower girl petals, alter flowers, floral aisle runners, or a flower crown.
Once you know where you want flowers, break your flower budget down further so you know how much you can spend in each area. This is vital for picking the right flowers.
The last thing you want is to fall in love with a centerpiece idea just to discover it eats up your entire flower budget. Instead, knowing where you want to use flowers and how much you can afford on each piece will help your florist show you the best flowers in your price range.
Pick a Theme
It's no secret that there's a huge range of colors and styles when it comes to flowers. You likely already have a wedding theme picked out, so think about how that will translate to your flowers.
The majority of your flowers should follow your wedding's color palette. While you may dream of large red rose centerpieces, they'll look out of place if your wedding colors are blue and gray.
Next, think about the style of your wedding and which flowers go with the overall look you're trying to achieve.
For example, a bouquet full of greenery and hanging flowers would look great for a rustic wedding, but an all-white bouquet may look better for a simple and sophisticated wedding.
Go with In-Season Flowers
Are you having a rustic springtime-themed wedding? Or maybe you're going for a summer garden party?
Many couples opt to include the season in their wedding theme.
If that includes you, you'll definitely want to choose flowers that are in-season to ensure your wedding decorations match the theme. But choosing in-season flowers serves another purpose.
While you can get out-of-season flowers, they are usually much more expensive. If you want to keep within your budget, looking at in-season flowers is the easiest way to do that.
