A Starting Point

Oct 01, 2020

The starting point of wedding flowers is typically the bridal bouquet, followed by the groom’s corsage. For many a bride and groom, these are the first components that are discussed when they meet with a florist. Suffice to say, these are two items that are a must at any wedding celebration.

In recent times however, due to the closure of borders, locally grown flowers will take centrestage at weddings. Indeed, this is a good time to nurture a mindset among couples as well as floral designers, to give priority to local flower farmers, not just as a stop-gap measure, but for the longer term. Creative and artistic florists will have the necessary skill and flair to conceptualise and create bouquets and corsages that will showcase these blooms, as part of each couple’s wedding theme.

A few suggestions :

  • Do some research before meeting with your florist. Identify designs that speak to you.
  • Sometimes choosing flowers that are less commonly seen in weddings can make an impression.
  • Take into account weather conditions when deciding on the type of flowers.
  • Some flowers will stain fabrics, so be careful.
  • Heed the advice of experienced florists who have done numerous weddings.
