Selecting Bouquets And Boutonnieres For Your Wedding Party

Flowers can feature prominently in the centerpieces you create for your reception, the decorations you use for your altar, and in many other spaces during your wedding. Of course, some of the most recognizable floral arrangements you feature during your event are the ones that you and your wedding party carry with you. You can feel some sense of anxiety about planning the designs for your bouquets, and the boutonnieres worn by the groom and groomsmen. To make your decisions easier, pay attention to what is in season when you plan your wedding, and make an effort to showcase your wedding colors. You should also keep practical matters in mind – for example, as tempting as it might be to create big, beautiful arrangements, larger size bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages can be hard to carry comfortably.

Your Wedding Colors Should Influence Your Floral Designs

While you can certainly sneak in more than just your wedding colors when you pick out floral designs, you should make your chosen colors prominent when you make selections. Doing so will help you tie them into your larger decorative efforts, and make them feel specially designed for your event. You can bring up your colors when creating arrangements with your florist, so they can make recommendations that suit your needs.

Should I Use Real Or Fake Flowers?

For the bridal bouquet in particular, fresh flowers can be important. After all, this is something that will garner plenty of attention. Fake flowers offer certain advantages – they can be easier on your budget, and there are no concerns about them losing freshness. With that said, you may want to concentrate on only featuring real flowers for arrangements that people are likely to take a close look at during your event.

Be Careful Not To Make This Mistake!

Because your bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages are connected to important people, your goal should be to make them as nice as possible. One mistake you definitely want to avoid is making them larger in order to make them easier to notice, or more splendid. Size can end up being a liability, as you can leave people with corsages and boutonnieres that are hard to secure, or bouquets that are uncomfortable to carry.
