Top Flower Tips for Brides
March 13, 2010
Mark is making an appearance on The Knot website on Tuesday to talk about bridal flowers.
Here are some of the tips he offers on planning floral decor for your wedding:
Have a budget. Be upfront with your vendors on exactly how much you can spend.
Make sure that you are listening to your florist, but also that they are listening to you.
Select a venue that is already beautiful and needs only a little enhancement.
Don’t skimp on the bridal bouquet.
Boutonnieres should be simple and small.
When selecting flowers, stick with one or two colors.
Be flexible on the types of flowers you want. Keep in mind that certain flowers are seasonal.
Save money by mixing tall floral arrangements with several low ones.
Incorporating lots of candles with the centerpieces can stretch your budget.
Put your dollars where they show. Limit floral arrangements on cocktail tables, in the powder room and aisle decoration.
Don’t cut back on ceremony flowers, which will show in the wedding photos.
When thinking about the wedding’s overall design, you can never go wrong with a clean classic look. Today’s trend is a return to classic elegance.
Floral décor wedding trends include larger rather than smaller blooms; glass containers and groups of flowers rather than mixing everything together.
