When you’re planning your wedding, you have a lot to think about. From choosing from different wedding venues in Dallas, TX to formulating the guest list to deciding on the menu, the number of components that go into making your big day perfect can be overwhelming. But one of the decisions you have to make – choosing the flowers for your ceremony – doesn’t have to be fraught with anxiety. Besides finding the perfect gown, choosing flowers for your bouquet, centerpieces and arbor can be the most enjoyable part of wedding planning. With flowers, you get to add color and natural beauty to complement your dress, your style, the season and the setting.
Your first step should be to consult with a florist who specializes in, or has extensive experience in, selecting flowers and designing floral arrangements for weddings, especially wedding venues in Dallas, TX. When you meet with her, take your wedding dress with you. The color and style of your dress, coupled with your own likes and dislikes, will help her to decide which options to show you. She’ll likely start with your bouquet, which is the central floral element of any wedding and one that you’ll be carrying around for most of the day. The color of your dress will help to determine the color of your bouquet. You may love orange flowers but if you have a pale, pink dress, the pairing can be jarring. Luckily, since most wedding dresses are white-, cream- or ivory-colored, there are a wide range of flower colors to choose from.
Once you know the colors you should choose from, you can decide which type of flower you prefer based on which flowers will be in season when you need them. Roses are always popular and come in a variety of colors. Tulips, calla lilies, peonies, ranunculus and sweet peas are also high on the list of flowers chosen for bouquets. The type of flower you prefer will determine the size and shape of the bouquet, which is important because you don’t want to hide any of the design elements of your dress with an overwhelming or oversized bouquet of flowers.
If you want your bouquet to be a personal statement, you can add flowers that have a particular meaning; for instance, you may want to carry some of the same flowers your mother or grandmother carried in their bouquets. Another way to personalize it is to add elements of the traditional ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’ theme. You can add a borrowed, lace handkerchief or a piece of jewelry, like a brooch that’s a family heirloom, to the stem wrap. Once you’ve chosen the perfect bouquet, your florist can create centerpieces and an arbor drape that mirror the flowers in the bouquet. She can even create an arrangement to adorn the back of your “honeymoon getaway” car.
