Smell the roses and pick a wedding floristWithout fail this will be an area of the wedding where the bride will have more input than the groom. The groom to be will usually have some feedback, but it will usually include the phrases ?I guess?, ?Looks fine to me?, and the always enjoyable ?If that?s what you want it?s fine with me.? Now ladies don?t let this get you upset or thinking he doesn?t care. Most men just don?t see flowers as being as important to the wedding day as you do. To make this process easier and cost effective find centerpieces you feel fit your style, find a wedding florist with flowers that are local and in season, and pick a centerpiece that fits your wedding hall.
Your personal style should help you in getting started, but don?t let that lock you into one design. Use your style as a guide to work with and build on. Selecting flowers that have to be imported, colored, or are a tougher color to find can run you hundreds or thousands of dollars. I had picked out a white flower and decided i wanted to go with a red and the price difference was $20 per flower. So you will learn to adjust.
Your wedding hall will play a role in your selection for several reasons. What kind of lighting does your hall have? Do they offer and spotlights on the tables to emphasize your centerpieces. If so this can make a small full centerpiece standout and seem much more impressive. What kind of tableswill you be using? You don?t want the centerpiece to be in the way of people and blocking views. I have attended wedding where people actually removed the centerpiece from the table because the couldn?t see other people at their table. Don?t be afraid to accentuate your flowers with the use of votive candles, pedals, or using unique vases with a nice interior design. Also asked your wedding florist for advice and suggestions.
All wedding florists will design a sample piece for you before you actually decide to go forward with your choice. Remember to ask how many free samples they will make for you. Many will only give you one shot before charging you for additional work. Clear this before you sign anything because this will be an argument you will usually lose. Verify that the wedding florist has a relationship with your venue because you don?t want to deal with any confusion the day of your event. The tradition of giving the centerpiece away during the wedding just takes up time and most people find it disrupts the flow of the event. Your guests will take the flowers at the end of the night without you telling them?they will take everything that isn?t bolted down actually!
