Setting The Stage With Flowers

Apr 01, 2021

Flowers are an integral part of a wedding as they not only create a loving atmosphere but literally set the stage for a truly romantic event. Whilst flowers are almost always a necessity, it is also necessary to budget wisely.

Some pointers :

  • Flowers that are in season during your wedding will be less costly and more hardy.
  • Favour local blooms over imported ones if budget is an issue. Moreover, with the travel restrictions at present, locally grown flowers will be in greater supply compared to those from abroad.
  • A professional florist should be able to advise you on alternatives in order to meet your budget.
  • Consider recycling some of the arrangements from your ceremony for the banquet.

  • Thematic designs.
  • Coordination of colours.
  • Sentimental meaning of certain blooms.
  • Types of flowers in honour of loved ones.

An advice or two :

  • Floral designers tend to work better when left to their own devices. Trust them and give them a free hand to express their creativity.
  • Have your floral designer coordinate with your decorator for setup and teardown logistics.
