When it comes to choosing the flowers for the wedding, if you're like most couples, you probably don't have a clue where to start right now.
Of course for every ten couples who can't tell the difference between a carnation and a camelia, there will be one other who can even give you the latin names for both (Dianthus caryophyllus and Camellia Japonica in case you were wondering!). But this article isn't for those greenfingered know-it-all's, it's for the vast majority of couples out there who are looking for some simple, honest floral suggestions.
So where do you start?
Well typically there are four main ways to select the flowers which will feature at the wedding, and we've handily prepared an A-Z guide for each one. The four main selection methods are:
- Choosing your flowers by colour
- Choosing your flowers by season
- Chooisng your flowers by meaning
- Choosing from popular flowers
As a general rule of thumb, seasonal blooms are the cheapest and most environmentally friendly, flowers chosen by meaning tend to be the most romantic, flowers chosen by colour will be the most co-ordinated, and flowers chosen by popularity are solely for those who want to keep up with the Jones's (only joking - they're rightfully popular for a reason!).
So without further ado, it's time to have a think about how you'd like to choose your wedding flowers.
