Planning your wedding is exciting but can be overwhelming. Here are my tips for getting started.
Prepare for consultations by considering colour, aesthetic, guest experience and budget. Choose suppliers that can support you to bring your vision to life.
1. Think about the colours that you naturally gravitate to
What does your wardrobe or your home look like? What compliments your skin tone/personality? Are they polished neutrals or rainbow brights? Dark and moody or light and airy?
Colours are that are complimentary (like this) or in direct opposite (lilac and lemon, peach and blue) can work beautifully. I often like to throw in colour curve ball, adding black to neutrals, brown to peach and blue to make something really unique.
2. Agree your wedding aesthetic
The venue sets the tone for your wedding but flowers and styling elevate that to create an aesthetic, a feeling and experience. Whether you’re planning an arty party or calm modern elegance, beautifully boho or rustically romantic; have a discussion together about what best represents you.
I encourage my couples to think about these keywords to help narrow your wedding aesthetic.
3. Creating wow wedding flower moments that add value
Flowers can create a wow moment but often just focusing on one impactful floral installation that can be re-used or repurposed can really add value.
So, a super stylish arty flower cloud above your ceremony space that is later above your top table and after that above your dancefloor can frame beautiful wedding photos that last a lifetime.
Alternatively, a floral arch that can be moved to your top table and create a backdrop for guest photos in the evening or aisle flowers that later line the front of your top table.
The opportunities are endless but will vary depending on your wedding, the ceremony and reception venue. Speak to me about creating statement wedding florals.
4. Budgeting for wedding flowers
Wedding flower costs vary depending on the preferred flowers, season and overall look that you’re going for and the impact you are looking to create with your day. On average, you should be looking at spending 10-15% of your wedding budget on wedding flowers, to cover your bridal party flowers, wedding ceremony flowers and wedding reception florals.
There are several ways to optimise your wedding flower budget – either by focusing on one impactful floral installation that can be re-used and repurposed, or is carefully positioned to feature in your ceremony, at your top table and even your first dance.
