Wedding Flowers:

The bouquet featured above is made from white phalaenopsis orchids, white freesia, white feathers, camellia leaf, and rhinestone pins.

Some things to keep in mind when selecting your wedding flowers are if they’re in season and what region will your flowers be coming from? Some flowers have to be shipped in from far away places and therefore will be much more expensive. So, basically selecting wedding flowers that are in season and close to home will save you the most amount of money.

Wedding FlowersqWhen choosing what flowers to proudly display at your wedding you should definitely also consider the fragility of the flowers. Many flowers bruise at the slightest touch like the white Calla Lily. This flower literally turns brown where ever it’s touched and it wilts after being without water for 3 or 4 hours so by the end of the night if you don’t like the way your Lily’s are looking then don’t blame your florist. It’s just the fragility of the flower itself.

Wedding FlowersThe Color of Wedding Flowers

In many ways, flowers are one of nature’s most beautiful works of art.  From vibrant red roses to the ever delicate tulip, for centuries, flowers have been and continue to be an intimate symbol used to speak the language of love. When choosing your wedding flowers we want you to take into consideration the different shades of a color that flowers come in. So if you order a fuchsia pink rose and it the shade of the flower ends up being not so “fuchsia” in color there are valid reasons for this.

Why Wedding Flowers come in different shades of color:

The type of climate it is grown in

The type of fertilizer used on it

The type of soil it grows in

The water specific to the area it is grown in

These are important factors when determining the outcome of your flowers color. So when you order a coral colored flower that you have always dreamed of and the grower sends a light orange then it is most likely going to mean that your flowers will require some floral paint. Do not fret, for this is a much more common practice than you think.

Believe it or not, floral paint has been around for generations. So if you’re picky about getting a particular shade of flower, ask your florist or planner about Floral Paint. It’s one  solution to getting the exact shade of wedding flowers that you desire. Otherwise, you may want to consider going with the flow and being happy with whatever shade of “blue” you receive.

TIP: It is helpful if to choose your colors first and your flowers second. This will allow you to choose from a variety of flowers within your color theme and by doing so, it will allow you decide how picky you want to be regarding the exact shades you seek. Your planner or florist can then take the necessary steps needed to assure that you get exactly what you want.
