Weddings and Flowers


If you have ever been in a wedding planning committee, then you know how important it is to have flowers in a wedding. You would equate a wedding without flowers to a wedding, which has no fancy dresses, no refreshments whatsoever, and not even a reception. Having no flowers or bad flowers is as tasteless as it can go.

If you want the mental pictures of your wedding to be worth remembering, you need to have decent flowers there. You need flowers to help build energy and breathe life into the whole ceremony. Otherwise, it becomes a discussion group.

The first thing to begin with when you are searching for the picture perfect flowers is by tying them to the theme chosen for the wedding. Know if your wedding will be an open-air wedding or if it will be indoors. Is it country or urban?

Each different setting will determine how you choose your flowers. They should not collide. Therefore, if it is a Victorian wedding, dry herbs will make a perfect spectacle. If then your setting is just an old church somewhere in the suburbs, gorgeous flowers and tall arrangements are more suitable.

Is the wedding also going to be a formal one or a rather free-spirited affair? If you prefer a scripted and formal wedding, then you should use whitish lavish flowers and stick to stargazers or gardenias.

A semi formal wedding will need baskets filled with cut flowers, wreaths and other flowering plants.

Your budget will also define the limits of your creativity. It is amongst the biggest factors that will affect what your flowers are like. If you are on a shoestring budget, you can use silk flower in your arrangement.

It is hard to tell that the flowers are not recently cut. They are able to provide the required beauty without having to strain your pockets. The silk flowers will last long and can also be used again in future events. They are what you need for your buck.
