Of Bouquets And Arches

Mar 01, 2020

At the onset of the wedding day, two components of wedding flowers that are focal points when it comes to what guests take notice of are the bridal bouquet and floral arch. The former completes the bride’s ensemble, the latter welcomes everyone as they take their seats at the exchange of vows ceremony.

Styles vary and flowers are aplenty. Indeed, the options are almost endless, particularly when one gives a free hand to floral designers and decorators to express their creativity and artistic vision. This is where trust plays an important role, the trust that a couple places in their appointed florist and decorator to help them realise the wedding theme they have envisioned for their big day.

Some thoughts to ponder :

  • Fresh flowers only or are you open to include some preserved, dried and/or artificial flowers.
  • All things being equal, fresh flowers are typically more costly. The same applies with respect to imported blooms versus local varieties.
  • Flowers that are in season at the time of your wedding.
  • Vibrant, strong and striking hues or romantic, pastel shades.
  • Elaborate designs or simple creations.
