A Wedding Flower Guide

By Muzrak Maksidov

When it comes to choosing wedding flowers, many brides may know the

wedding flower they want in their own bouquet, but are a little mystified

about the rest of the wedding flowers needed to fill out the ceremony

and reception.

While you can leave all your wedding flower selections in the hands of

a capable professional florist and get great results, you may want to

take a more hands on approach. We hope this wedding flower guide will

help making planning your most special day just a little easier.

Your first decision should be whether you plan to use a professional

florist to create a wedding flower arrangement and bouquets, or if you'd

rather visit a wholesale wedding flower retailer and order flowers to

make your own bridal bouquets, boutonnieres and so forth.

If you are the creative type, a simple floral craft book will give you

all the tips and tool lists necessary to create your own custom wedding

flowers that reflect your personal style. It's a good idea to purchase

some flowers to practice with ahead of time to make sure you'll be

happy with your results. Whatever you decide, there are some standard

traditions and suggestions to help make sure you've covered all your wedding

flower needs.

A Few Extra Wedding Flower Tips

* Maid/Matron of Honor wedding bouquets should be

slightly more elaborate or in a different color

shade than the rest of the bridesmaid wedding


* The Best Man boutonniere should be slightly more

elaborate than the rest of the groomsmen


* The corsages/boutonnieres for the parents should

differ slightly from the step-parents, and all

grandparent corsages/boutonnieres should be

different as well. It makes it easier for guests

to keep track of who's who.

* Wedding flower arrangements from the church can

be transferred to the reception hall for double


* Bridesmaid wedding bouquets could be set in

waiting vases and used as decoration for the

bridal table.

Remember, these are just wedding flower guidelines. When it comes to

your special day, your wedding flower selections and arrangements should

reflect your personal taste and style. You can keep things simple or

get as elaborate as you like, as long as your wedding flowers help you

create the perfectly romantic wedding day you've always dreamed of.
