wedding planning guide: flowers
1) who gets flowers?
Of course, the bride gets her bouquet, as do the bridesmaids. The groom has his boutonnière, but who else? Include anyone at the wedding that you want to recognize as important to you. Examples are parents, grandparents, aunts / uncles, friends, etc. There is no limit to who you choose.
2) think outside the wedding colors
Flowers don’t have to be one of the main wedding colors. Choose colors that compliment the wedding colors, which add a unique and refreshing palette to the wedding.
3) stay in season for best availability / price
By incorporating flowers that are in season at the time of your wedding, you not only have a better selection of styles and colors but also will pay less for your arrangements.
4) add your own flare
Bouquets and boutonnieres are a perfect place to add a subtle piece of your story. Hang Grandmother’s locket around the stems. Place a rosary around the roses. Put feathers or other items in his boutonniere. Make it your own, and incorporate another special piece of your life to your day.
5) placement is key
Ladies: bouquets should be held at your belly button. Not higher, not lower.
Gentleman: boutonnieres go on the left side, and make sure they are on straight.
