Spring is here and, luckily for those hosting weddings this season, that means that flowers are in full bloom. Florals are such an important element of both your wedding ceremony and reception. From bouquets, to aisle arrangements, table settings, and venue decorations - the flowers you choose will likely be on display throughout your Omaha wedding venue. It’s important to choose the best flowers and florist for you and your desired theme. Here’s a step-by-step guide to choosing flowers for your wedding day:
1. Make a budget
Because you need so many, wedding flowers can be a big expense. Start by deciding where and how many flowers you will need for your specific venue. Use that information to determine how much you’re willing to spend, and then choose the flowers that fit your budget. Consider that flowers and decor, on average, account for ten percent of the total wedding budget.
2. Gather inspiration
Take to the internet to gather inspiration for your floral arrangements! Narrow your search according to the overall aesthetic and color palette you’re going for, as some flowers fit best with certain themes. The florist you choose can likely provide you some examples, as well.
3. Find a florist
When it comes to booking a florist, you’ll want to do it six to eight months out. Do thorough research on the best florists in your area. Consider their selection and your budget as you decide which is the best fit for you. Once you’ve narrowed it down to a few options, visit them in store to see their inventory in person and talk to a consultant. Do not by any means compromise on quality!
4. Pick seasonal flowers
Flowers that are out-of-season will be significantly more expensive or even downright impossible to find. You can save a lot of money and time by choosing flowers that are in-season and in the spring, the options are limitless! Here are some of the most popular spring flowers:
- Sweet Peas
- Lily of the Valley
5. Consider size and placement
Before you secure your florist and flower choices, map out your Omaha wedding venue considering where exactly you will have floral arrangements. Consider the experience of your guests and avoid overwhelming them with excessive flowers. For instance, while you want your flowers on display at each table, you don’t want them to be so large or close that they infringe on your guests’ ability to talk and interact with each other.
