Flower Bouquets For Weddings

Updated on June 4, 2012

Must Have For Your Wedding

Flowers and weddings go hand in hand (no pun intended). Imagine a wedding without flowers. It just doesn't seem right. It doesn't seem complete. A wedding should be surrounded by beautiful flowers and flower arrangements. The sight and smell of flower bouquets for weddings brings all the senses together into an unforgetable wedding event.

Flower bouquets for weddings can liven up a drab, dull reception hall. You can add decorations at the head table, dessert table and the cake table. Even a church's existing decoration can be enhanced adding ribbons and flowers to the the first few rows of the pews and at the altar.

Your flower arrangements can be elaborate as in the recent royal wedding or you can keep it simple. You can dress up the whole wedding party with flowers, corsages, boutonnieres, bouquets or maybe just a simple wedding bouquet for yourself.

Creating bouquets for weddings requires a creative mind and an artistic eye. This requires trained people called florists. Florists play an important role in weddings as they are responsible for the wedding bouquets, the flower arrangements, church and hall decorations.

If you are on a tight budget, you can use flowers from your friend's/relative's gardens. You can even add balloons to the reception hall to make it appear fuller. You can still keep your florist to prepare the trickier/harder part fo the floral decorations. You and your friends can prepare the other parts. Why not have your bridesmaids (and even the groomsmen) get together for a "flower arrangement" party.

Bouquets for Weddings Tips

Make sure that your chosen flowers match your overall color/wedding theme. Also important is to make sure that the flowers matches your wedding gown and the groom's attire. If flowers are to be made for your wedding entourage, make sure that the wedding flowers matches their attire, especially the bridesmaids' dresses

Real Bouquets for Weddings or artificial ones?

Have you consider going with artificial flowers (also known as silk flowers)? Two situations may cause you to consider silk flowers. One is if you are allergic to real flowers. The other is if you are getting married suring the off-wedding season, some fresh flowers may not be available. Or they may be available but the cost may be too much for your budget as you will need to ship them from afar. If you are concerned that the silk flowers may look fake, no need to worry as recent technologies have made silk flowers look like the real thing.
