Weddings are always associated with grandeur and celebration
that require a lot of preparation and attention to a
number of small but intricate details. One such detail
is the arrangement of flowers that helps in enhancing
the overall ambiance of the wedding venue. You may dream
of using thousands of flowers at your wedding, but might
be restricted to do so mainly due to budget constraints.
Professional wedding florists can certainly enhance
the appeal of the wedding venue, but their services
are often very expensive. To save costs you can use
your own imagination and creativity while making flower
arrangements for the wedding. You can also get help
from close friends who will be more than willing to
lend a helping hand.
Transforming the wedding venue into a garden of flowers
does seem a lovely idea, but this is often easier said
than done as flowers are delicate and will start wilting
immediately if proper care is not taken. Flowers need
to be stored in a cool place away from direct sunlight
in buckets of cool water to prolong their freshness
and beauty. If you are planning to use hundreds of flowers,
make sure that your have a lot of buckets for storing
them. You can consult with local florist for tips and
information about the best ways of preserving the wedding
flowers. Make sure that you order quality blooms and
keep sprinkling them from time to time to keep fresh
for the wedding.
For most couples, it will usually be the first time
that they are handling flower arrangements and as such,
it is important to allow time to prepare the bouquets..
If you think that making flower arrangements is not
your cup of tea or are too busy with planning other
wedding details, it is best to get somebody to help
you. Make sure that the centerpiece and altar arrangements,
as well as other bouquets are prepared early on the
eve of the wedding day, in order to allow for the other
eleventh hour crises.
Make sure that flowers selected for the bride's wedding
bouquet suit her style as well as the wedding dress.
Bride bouquets can be made from either a single type
of flower or a combination of different types of flowers.
If you are a first timer, it is better to make a bouquet
that has a single type of flowers in it as combining
different types of flowers may be too complicated and
the result may not be as good as first perceived. While
making centerpieces, make sure that they are not taller
than 12 inches as you certainly would not want your
guests to crane their necks around towering flower arrangements
to talk to each other or observe the ceremonies.
Weddings are one of the most wonderful times of life
and flowers are probably the best way of expressing
the joy and happiness. Flower arrangements need to not
only look beautiful to the eye, but also need to be
meaningful to the heart. As such, it is important to
include a variety of flowers so that the majority of
guests can relate to them. Based on seasonal availability,
you can include roses, lilies, carnations, orchids,
tulips, and myrtles while making flower arrangements.
