Tips for Choosing Your Bridal Bouquet Flowers

Beloved Flower Lover,

Choosing your Bridal Bouquet Flowers is an important part of your wedding day preparation. Plan ahead and consult  to be sure that you can get a good quantity of flowers in the colors you want for your special day.

Before meeting with us or your local  florist look through a lot of magazines,  galleries and so on to get inspiration on what colors you like and the level of formality you want to go for.

Consult with local florists and be up front about your budget. Consider the time of year that you are getting married when picking your flowers and choose flowers that are in season and readily available. Don’t plan a rose-filled wedding around Valentine’s Day or you’ll pay a premium.

Simpler designs and less exotic flowers will be less expensive. A single large orchid can make a stunning bouquet for the bride, as can a basket filled with wildflowers.

To have your flowers look their most beautiful you will want to know that the florist will be arranging them the day before the wedding, so have the scheduling done for the flowers to arrive no more than 2 or 3 days prior to your wedding and have the time allocated for the trimming and arranging the day before.

Choose a colour palette and select bridal bouquet flowers that are in season that fit that palette.

Depending on the season of your wedding, you can pick beautiful bouquets from your own garden, or elicit help from friends and family who have green thumbs. If you want specific flowers, plan ahead and get the type and colours you want in the ground early.

This is just a simple set of reminders, yet the biggest investment we suggest you make is the emotional connection between you and your partner. Then choosing your flowers remains simply a symbol of your most important partnership after your relationship with your ultimate love, the Creator.

  1. I enjoyed this post immensely! We just celebrated our 18th anniversary this month and never grow tired of remembering our wonderful wedding because it was so filled with friends and loved ones from beginning to end. This included our flower choices: all of our flora came from my mother’s garden and a neighboring friends, we went out and cut them all together, and another friend who was the chief florist for the university where Richard and I taught offered to make all of the arrangements. Irises, a particular favorite of by R’s and mine, were in season and created the anchor for the design, and we celebrated surrounded by beauty that had great personal meaning for all of us. And that is what you always advocate!

    I hope you’re having a beautiful summer, dearest.


    • Wow Kathryn, Congratulations to you and your husband.
      Your comment is so filled with love. Your words are like a sail boat, they carry us. You wake us up to our soul, to the power within us, which we can cut of from and then try to find again and make ourselves succeed and do things. Kathryn, you remind us how we are already hooked up to this much greater power that we are all hooked up to. You remind us that trying to do things in an empowered way is like having a sail boat and blowing the sails to move it.Its hard work, yet sail boats are not designed to work that way. It’s about catching the wind in the sails.It’s about connecting ourselves back to that place of beauty, peace and joy inside of us that carry us. So its the same thing, you words remind us to let our natural inner beauty and joy happen so it takes us places. Your words about your wedding anniversary connect us back to this understanding and reminds us why we loose that connection when we do. and how we can reconnect so we can enjoy long lasting love together. Imagine if a flower forgets who it is.Do we teach it how to be a flower or just get it to notice itself.Kathryn, your kind words remind us to let go of looking in the wrong direction, to stop fixing what we think is broken, when in fact its already a part of us right now. To just acknowledge the peace, the joy, the happiness, the beauty inside so we can share that with others. Thank you for showing up and commenting. It so helps us to celebrate all of this and more. We give thanks for your insights.

      Yes, the summer is beautiful!
