Think About Your Theme or Style

Are you going for that soft, vintage look? What is your ceremony location like? Which types of florals or greenery might match your wedding dress?

These are all important factors to consider when planning your bouquet. The style, location, theme, setting and color palette should have an impact on your decision.

Do Your Research

Take the time to explore out-of-the-box ideas and save the ones that speak to you the most. Don’t rush into choosing the first one you fall in love with. It’s also helpful to research various types of plants that may match the colors you want to go for. But don't worry, it's our job to help you know what the names of those plants are and how to use them! If you simply have images, that is enough! Remember, you may be surprised to find something you’ve never heard of!

Consider Your Budget

If you have a budget you are trying to stay within, explore various options you love that have a similar vibe or color palette. Your florist will be able to help you narrow down costs and expenses of each of these options. Sometimes you can achieve a look that is just as stunning with flowers or greenery that are less expensive than your top choice!

Ask Your Wedding Floral Designer

When in doubt, ask away! Whether you aren’t sure about how to achieve a certain style or you want to ask for expertise and guidance, speaking with a floral designer is the best stress-free way to plan your bouquet!
