Choosing your wedding flowers – 1
Your choice of flowers will be influenced by many things; the style and fabric of your dress, your theme and location, colour scheme, the time of year, favourite or significant flowers, budget, amongst others. What time of year are you getting married? Including flowers in their natural season will be more cost effective, and equally importantly, they will be at their peak quality. For example Peonies are available for several months of the year but are at their stunning best in June, and also most reasonably priced then.
Roses remain the most popular wedding flower and are available in almost every colour you can imagine from faded antique and vintage shades to startlingly bright and vibrant hues. The range of shapes and sizes is varied too, from small, neat buds to big, blousy blooms.
If you want to be eco-friendly ask your florist to use English or locally grown flowers. The choice and availability will vary greatly depending on the time of year and what the great British weather is doing on any given week! On the plus side, even in winter English flowers are available such as Narcissi and Hyacinths from Cornwall. In the future, using seasonal flowers will always evoke memories of the time of year of your special day.
