Tips for Choosing your Wedding Flowers

"A bride's bouquet is a once in a life-time accessory”. As such, owner & designer Krista Mackler considers it to be the statement piece at your wedding. Her advice? Focus on what you desire most in your dream bouquet.  Once your deam bouquet is selected, you can explore different options to ensure that your coordinating pieces carry the theme, while still fitting within your budget." Here are some other things for brides to consider when planning:
  • Set a budget
  • Don’t worry too much about the current trend; let your choice reflect your personal style and taste
  • No matter how many times you may hear that flowers don’t last; flowers are the finishing touch that leaves a lasting impression of your day
  • Pinterest like crazy and come prepared to your consultation with images to show your likes and dislikes; trust in your florist’s knowledge and experience on how to achieve your vision.
  • Keep in mind that the season in which you wed will affect your choice; if a flower is out of season it can be imported, but at a higher cost. You can still achieve the same look with seasonal flowers in a similar colour.
  • Create a list of required floral pieces early in the planning. Can any be reused (ie: bouquets used on the head table instead, church arrangements moved to the reception space)?
  • Prearrange all set up details and delivery location and times to eliminate a phone call to coordinate on the day of.
