Your Wedding Flowers and your Florist
Wedding Flowers are one of the most important aspects of your wedding. The flower arrangements will be prominant in your photographs second only to the bride. Selecting a Florist to design and arrange your wedding flowers is an important step in the planning process for your wedding day. Making decisions on styles, colors and flower types can be an involved process. Therefore, it is important that you choose a florist that is willing to spend time helping you plan your wedding flowers and arrangements. A good florist will be prepared with suggestions, books and pictures and they should know their flowers well. Flowers are beautiful all by themselves, but a talented florist will have a good eye and this involves making arrangements with the right color tones, flower combinations and correct flower placement in the bouquets and arrangements.
Your Wedding Flowers and your Budget
Sweet Petals Florist will work within any reasonable wedding flower budget. However, it is important that your budget is realistic in connection with the type and amount of floral arrangements that you require for your wedding ceremony and reception.
The number and type of reception centerpieces and ceremony decorations will have a large impact on your overall costs.
Flower choice will also make a big difference - The type of wedding flowers used will make a difference in how much you will spend on your wedding flowers. Smaller budgets are easier to work with when lower cost flowers are used such as carnations, sunflowers, alstromeria, stock, Snapdragons and many others. The most expensive flowers include Gardenias, Peonies, Cabbage roses (i.e. David Austin Roses), select specialty roses, select Orchids, Monkey tails (Fiddle Fern), Purple, Antique and Blue Hydrangeas, Some varieties of Calla Lily's, Anthurium, and a few others. In particular, Gardenia's, Hydrangea, Fiddle Fern and white Calla Lily's require Tender Loving Care. Gardenia's brown very easy and must not be touched by human hands. Peonies are only available during certain times of the year from April through mid June and Mid October through December. Hydrangea's are beautiful and popular, however, they are sensitive to a lack of moisture, direct sunlight and heat. Hydrangeas require special care especially during the hotter months in outdoor settings.
