Five Things Wedding Florists Wish Brides Knew


Every detail of your wedding matters so much. Whether you had your color palette settled by the time you were in fifth grade, or you’re feeling a little dazed and overwhelmed by all the decisions, never have so many details meant so much. When you’re looking for the right wedding florist for your ceremony decor, bouquets and table centerpieces, here are some tips to set your mind at ease:
1. Inspiration is Everywhere
We will understand when you reference celebrity weddings, Disney princesses, or your favorite beach as wedding flower inspiration. Color palettes can start with a page torn from a magazine, a treasured piece of jewelry, or a field of wildflowers. The right wedding florist knows how to translate your taste. We find wedding flower inspiration everywhere, too! Bride & Blossom on Pinterest

2. Venue First
Before we put together a proposal, we need to know where your ceremony and reception will unfold. This isn’t only about when and where to show up; the mood and features of your chosen wedding venue will influence our floral designs. Whether you plan to say vows on a beach, in a cathedral surrounded by stained glass, in front of a rustic barn, or in a loft with stunning skyline views of Manhattan, we’ll design types of wedding flower arrangements that fit in perfectly and reflect your style.

3. Flowers Flatter
Your wedding flowers can accent your features and enhance your natural beauty. Think about the colors you love to wear; your favorite lipstick, bikini or sweater can be a great starting point for wedding-flower color inspiration. Bridal bouquets, low centerpieces and ceremony decor like floral arches flatter you during your wedding and reception, and in wedding photos. Consider your flowers part of your wedding makeup! Want to take full advantage of this timeless wedding beauty tip? We can create a flower crown, floral hairpin or floral wreath to suit your wedding hairstyle.
4. Social is Essential

Wedding florists love to connect! Share your wedding inspiration Pinterest boards so we can see what you like and collaborate. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr to see our latest bridal bouquets, floral arches, and ceremony decor. Take a look at who your wedding florist follows on social media and you might just find the bridal accessory or wedding cake designer of your dreams.

5. True Love
Wedding florists are passionate about flowers and devoted to celebrating love. Florists who specialize in wedding floral design never get over the thrill of making wedding dreams come true. Perfect floral arrangements, bouquets, and centerpieces add so much magic and romance to your wedding. We really love what we do and that is all because of you, our next beautiful bride.
