5 tips for your wedding flowers

Plan the floral art of your big day with these useful tips

Floral displays are one of the most important things when it comes to giving a wedding a sense of occasion.

And getting married in the summer will give couples the widest possible choice of blooms – especially if they want to reflect their location and ensure the displays are from local producers.

Floral art can tie in the colour schemes and themes of the big day as well as providing a talking point when it comes to style.

Couples should ensure they book a florist well in advance, in order that they can discuss arrangements.

This is especially true when the ceremony is taking place in the peak season – summer.

Buttonholes, bouquets and table displays are all part of the event and so it is worth showing a florist details of the bridal and grooms outfits as well as details of the ceremony and reception with seating and floor plan.

Some venues, such as country houses and hotels do have their own in-house teams who will have plenty of experience when it comes to decorating the big day.

Summer is a great time of year to use flowers to make a statement about the marriage.

Summertime blooms include colourful freesias, tiger lilies, daisies, roses, orchids and carnations and there is no need to stick to vases when it comes to putting them on display.

A floral centrepiece will be the focal point of a dining table during the reception and imagination can make it look stunning – but it is important to remember that it should not be too big so guests can see each other.

Lastly, couples who want to preserve their flowers after the event can employ a professional service – or just hand a bloom to each of their guests.
