Picking the right flowers for your wedding is one of the most important factors of your big day! Choosing the right palette of colors will determine the over all feel of your wedding and will also make everything cohesive. Flowers that are in season at the time of your wedding will help determine cost. Doing your homework will help you select the perfect bouquets and arrangements. Here are a few tips for selecting your wedding flowers:

 

  1. Start with colors and create a few color palette options. Pinterest is a great tool for this but be careful not to get carried away!
  2. Next do some research about certain flowers that you like, see if they are in season at the time of your wedding. Here is a great website to research flowers-  http://www.cutflower.com
  3. Consider the shape of your bouquet and your body type. For example, if you are a petite bride, you don’t want to be hidden behind a large bouquet.
  4. Consider the shape of your centerpieces as well. Some examples of arrangements are asymmetrical, organic, or structured.
  5. Also consider the formality of your wedding. Formal bouquets are typically all white, semi-formal have more colorful blooms, and informal can be colorful too but offer a wider variety of flowers.
  6. If you are putting flowers in your hair be sure to pick blooms that will last through pictures or have your florist provide a back up.

 

Have fun with selecting your flowers and let your personality show! The right flowers offer so much to your big event and can help transform a room! Instead of throwing them out at the end of the night, have family take centerpieces home or donate them to a senior living facility! This way you can enjoy them for your special day then help make someone else’s day special too!

Puppy Love

On your wedding day it’s important to include family and friends in your celebration. This includes your four-legged, furry friends! More and more brides are having their dog a part of the ceremony. Whether they act as the flower dog, ring bearer, or if they are just escorted down the aisle by a bridesmaid or groomsmen having your pup in the ceremony is a great way to incorporate them into your special day. If your dog will allow, place a wreath of flowers around her neck or a black bow tie to dress them up appropriately. If you plan on having your pup in your wedding here are a few things to consider:

 

  • Bring them to the rehearsal and let them get familiar with the scents at the ceremony site.
  • Keeping them on the leash during the ceremony will help control their behavior. Even if they are well behaved, we don’t want them to steal the show!
  • Assign someone to be the “dog handler” leading up to the ceremony and after to take them home. You and your immediate family will have enough going on and will not want to be in charge of keeping an eye on your pooch.
  • Make sure the “dog handler” takes the dog potty before the ceremony begins, we don’t want any accidents!
  • Pose for a few photos with your pup then have someone take him or her home, we would advise you not bring the dog to the reception! They will be there waiting for you with a wagging tail when you return home!
