Scented Ambience- An Artistic florist will suggest lovely and unusual designs for your wedding bouquet and floral arrangements that compliment your dress and ceremony venue.
When you talk to your florist, be guided by the following elements: style of your dress, the theme of the your wedding and setting of your ceremony / reception.
Go to your consultation prepared, with swatches of fabric and clours of your wedding dress. With this information your floral designer will be able to suggest to you beautiful and artistic arrangements.
The groom’s buttonhole, worn on his left lapel, should echo the brides bouquet, the ushers /groomsman wearing a slightly different flower on their lapel. Your attendants flowers will also be different from your bouquet.
You may wish to select certain flowers for personal and cultural reasons such as garlands, others may be chosen for tradition i.e roses symbolise love and lilies symbolise majesty.
Finally don’t forget you will need a number of floral pieces for your wedding displays, for example: centre pieces for your reception tables, sprays forcandelabras and floral tokens for those special guests. The grooms buttonhole should be one of the flowers in his brides bouquet. This is a vestige of the time when a knight would wear his lady’s colours to display his love.
