important day in your life. This

commitment to your significant
On your wedding, flowers are
very essential in creating the
ambiance that you want for your
special day. Wedding flowers
are not merely decorations on
your wedding. Wedding flowers
are much more than that.
Wedding flowers are the
expressions of your inner self
and the love that the groom and
the bride have for each other as
witnessed by their friends and family. The choice of flowers which to be used for the wedding depends
on the message that the soon to be wife and husband would want to say.
So what are the must-haves on your wedding that involve your wedding flowers? All wedding florists
ensure these things. You cannot do away with your church wedding without these.
You would need flowers to be placed at the entrance, aisle and the altar. You would also need flowers
at the reception which includes the entrance, and table centerpieces. Both the cake table and the guest
book table also need beautifully decorated flowers. There must also be flowers at the top of the
wedding cake.
At home where the wedding photographer starts taking pictures, there have to be flowers properly
arranged with the gown, shoes and all the other wedding symbols.
Aside from the bridal bouquet, the maid of honor and all the bridesmaids should have their own
individual bouquets, too. The wedding attendants may also have flowers. The headpieces of the maid
of honor and the bridesmaids also are made of flowers. The flower girls’ flower basket and headpiece
must not be forgotten. The bride also has a different bouquet to be thrown away. This throwaway
bouquet is usually given as complimentary by most florists.
Corsages must also be prepared for the mothers, grandmothers and usherettes while
buttonholes/boutonnieres are for the groom’s attendants, best man, grandfathers, fathers, drivers and
There are a few guide questions in choosing your wedding flowers. “What is the season of our
wedding? Would we be using fresh or artificial flowers? Would we take the seasonal flowers or the
commonly abundant flowers all year-round? What is the color of our wedding? What message would
we like to tell our guests?”
Wedding flowers may be categorized into spring, summer, autumn, winter and anytime classifications. In choosing the kind of wedding
flowers, you may consider the season of your wedding. Wedding flowers in season are commonly cheaper and easier to find. But you
may also consider the kind of flowers that can be found all through-out the year.
A few spring wedding flowers are the following: tulips, peonies, pansies, fern, greenery, ivy, daffodils, lilies, lilacs, lily of the valley, iris,
dogwoods, hyacinth, sweet peas, apple and cherry blossoms, larkspur, forsythia branches and violets.

delphinium, geraniums, hydrangeas, sunflowers, sweet William, greenery, beech leaves, fern, Jacob ladder, goldenrod and
At fall, wedding flower arrangements include the flowers from the two earlier said seasons which the bride has the preference in having a
single type of flower or having a combination of the flowers.
Aster, roses, zinnias, statice, dried hydrangeas, marigolds, chrysanthemums and daisies are a few of the wedding flowers in autumn.
Autumn leaves, yarrow, rosehip and rosemary are the commonly used foliage for an autumn wedding.
Winter wedding would include flowers such as orchids, poinsettias, camellias, jasmine, amaryllis, accents of pine, ivy and spruce.
Flowers that can be found easily all through-out the year are carnations, roses, gardenias, baby’s breath, ivy, snapdragons and
The choice between fresh and artificial flowers is easier to make. Most weddings use fresh flowers. It is not only fresh to the viewing
eyes, but it also conveys the message of sincerity.
