Choosing your bridal bouquet can be fun and exciting venture, but it can also be one that gives you sticker shock rather quickly!
Where do you start when deciding on what’s right for you? Well, first determine the season you are getting married in. Each season has its own dominating color pattern. For example, Fall tends to bring out the oranges, darker yellows, warm reds, & browns. Spring tends to bring out pastels: pale pinks, lavenders, blues, yellows & whites. This is not to say that you have to follow this rule of thumb, but it’s a great start.
Once you pick out what color scheme fits you best, the key is to pick flowers in that color scheme that are also seasonal to your wedding date. The reality is, you can get most flowers year-round, however you will pay a lot more for a flower that is known to bloom in spring to be used in a November wedding. Check out this seasonal floral chart. By choosing seasonally appropriate flowers, you will be assured to have the freshest flowers at the best price!
