Guide to floral success for Sunny Coast brides to be​

Everyone wants their wedding day to be perfect. From purchasing a breathtaking dress to finding a venue that you love, it's crucial everything goes to plan. With so many different things to organise, sometimes choosing the best florals for your wedding can be left to the last minute. Are you a bit overwhelmed when it comes to flowers? Whether it's choosing the right flowers to include in your bouquet or figuring out what colour the ribbon wrap should be, all of these decisions can have a big impact. To assist our beautiful bride and grooms to be, we've provided a few tips for achieving beautiful floral arrangements on your special day.

Follow these tips and you’re sure to get the right flowers for your wedding.

Dress comes first

Bouquet design goes hand in hand with the shape, style, detail and colour of your dress. So in order to get the right floral selection for your bouquet, you should choose your dress first!

Budget, budget, budget

While it’s vital to get the right flowers for your wedding, it’s equally important to set a budget and not go over it. Once you know your limits, you can set realistic expectations on what you can accomplish with your floral arrangements. Everyone has an idea of what would be perfect in their own mind, but sometimes compromises must be made. Usually the wedding flowers make up around 8 to 10 per cent of your overall wedding budget.

Size and comfort

There are no set rules when it comes to the size and design of your bouquet. Whether you want a hand-tied bouquet or a cascading free-form floral, it’s up to you! Just make sure it’s comfortable and doesn’t drown out your dress.

Seasonal choices

It’s important you don’t get your heart set on flowers that won’t be in season at the time of your wedding. Choose flowers that will be less expensive and in the best shape come wedding day.

It’s all about you!

At the end of the day, your wedding is your own unique celebration. So, it’s important that your wedding florals reflect your personality and style as a couple, or have a personal meaning for you or your partner.

Think about everything

When making your floral decisions it’s important that you cover all bases. While we all know about ceremony flowers, bouquets and aisle flowers, we often forget about things like petals for the send-off or small floral arrangements for the restroom. In order to make sure everything is looked after, you might want to consider getting some professional advice.
