Beautiful Blooms: Your Guide to Choosing you Wedding Flowers!

You’ve chosen the venue and after much discussion, you’ve settled on a colour scheme! Its time to choose your wedding flowers but where do you begin?

Pinterest and Instagram can be great sources of inspiration and advice, but it can become a bit overwhelming and daunting. Fear not - Here are some useful tips and tricks to guide you on your journey.

Your Florist

It’s worth researching your wedding florist and nothing is as good as word of mouth. Speak to family, friends and check out local social media pages. A good florist will listen to your ideas and guide you. They will work with you in creating your ultimate dream look.

Are you Blooms in Season?

The time of year will impact what florals are in full bloom. Your florist will be able to advise you on what flowers will be in season at the time of your wedding. They will listen to your vision and will be able to suggest alternatives if your chosen flowers aren’t ready yet.


Your outfits tend to dictate your colour scheme and style. Choose a bouquet to compliment your dress, your height, your style and of course colour.


If you are looking for a Meghan Markle style floral arch, then expect the price tag of a princess to go with it! You need to be realistic. This doesn’t mean you can’t have the floral arch, it does mean not having it two-foot-thick with exquisite English garden scented roses. Having a budget not only allows you to stay on track, but helps your florist too. Have an idea of what you think you may need in terms of floral items. This is an average of list of items ordered for a wedding:

  • A Bridal bouquet
  • Flowers for 3 bridesmaids
  • Flowers for 2 flower girls
  • 7 button holes
  • 2 ladies corsage
  • A floral arch
  • 7 table arrangements
  • A top table floral arrangement.


Why not use the arrangements for your tables in the ceremony room? Have vases ready in the reception room for your bridesmaid’s bouquets. These can not only add to your decoration, but when back in water prolongs their life. You could also give table arrangements away as gifts at the end of the night. Just make sure they only take the floral arrangements and not the candelabras they sit on!

Have fun – Groom’s love Lego! Incorporate that into his button hole. Do you have some quirky or sentiment jewellery? Then add it to your bouquet. Your florist will enjoy something a little different to work with.
