What is your personal style?
Are you a classic, bohemian, beach or
glamorous bride? Use Your Style to find the right bouquets
and décor for your wedding.
Give your florist photos of your wedding
dress, swatches of bridal
party attire to match colours, the
age of the flower girl to help determine what she can carry,
photos of the tuxedos, and the colour of the attire that
will be worn by the mothers of the bride and groom.
Figure out a colour scheme, which can
range from monochromatic to varied and subtle whites to
colours. If you're stuck, choose hues that
complement not contrast wit the colour of your bridesmaid
Choose seasonal hues
Rich ambers, oranges and reds complement
fall weddings, while silver, gold and cranberry suit winter
affairs perfectly. Pale pink, blue and green work well for
spring weddings, and rich beach colours or citrus hues work
well for summer soirees.
Match the mood
Choose blooms that match the formality of
your wedding. Daisies work perfectly for a casual outdoor
wedding, while lush roses give a formal tone.
If you've found a florist who understands
your style and can replicate arrangements that match your
vision, trust him or her to know what will work best.
Don't choose flowers that will overwhelm
your figure. Petite brides should pick smaller arrangements,
while taller women can carry more robust bouquets.
Consider honouring your mother or
grandmother by carrying the same blooms she did on her
Go beyond the traditional
choosing embellishments such as gemstones, feathers, fruits
If you're getting married in a hot climate
or small space, choose less-fragrant flowers such as asters,
dahlias and many orchids. Avoid tuberose, freesia and
