Fort Smith Wedding Flowers
Top Tips for Choosing Wedding Flowers
Of all the aspects of wedding planning, selecting the flowers can be one of the most enjoyable parts, where a couple can express their style and creativity. But there are a number of things to keep in mind so that the flower arrangements come out looking just right on the big day.
Begin by finding a florist who has experience with Fort Smith wedding flowers. Often, they have already designed floral arrangements the area's wedding venues, and can offer advice on color, style and budget. A couple doesn't have to know exactly what they want before meeting with the florist, but it's best if they have some idea of how much they plan to spend on flowers, along with a vision of how the ceremony and reception venues should look. Bringing in pictures of favorite arrangements is a great place to start.
It's also important to consider the decor of the reception site. Flowers designed to go in a grand ballroom might look out of place under a white tent set in a botanical garden. Will the venue need a lot or just a few floral accents? Will a mix of boldly colored blooms brighten or clash with the reception room? Will a pastel palette look elegant or just get lost in the space? Having pictures of the reception site can help guide the color design from the start.
Once the colors are chosen, the fun of selecting the floral style can begin. Some couples select a crisp modern style, with dramatic blooms like calla lilies. Others prefer an opulent look, such as roses and peonies. Those who like a warm, relaxed style might choose local garden blooms and wildflowers.
One factor that often gets overlooked is a bride's wedding dress. The bridal bouquet should complement the dress, and be designed around the color, whether it's white, cream, blush or another hue. Also important is the dress style, and how ornate it is. Intricate beading can get lost or even hidden behind a large, lavish bouquet.
Perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind when it comes to floral arrangements, is to be flexible, trust the florist who is providing the Fort Smith wedding flowers, and don't stress if the blue hydrangeas are a shade lighter than expected. In the end, it's all about enjoying the wedding day.
