5 Wedding Flower Mistakes to Avoid

There are so many moving parts involved when planning a wedding. So it's totally understandable that many couples rush through some steps in the process! However, it's important to make decisions carefully, so that they don't become mistakes you regret down the road. 

If you're currently in the process of selecting your wedding floral arrangements and decor, here are some mistakes to avoid at all costs -- and you're wedding florist will thank you for!

Flower Mistake #1: Lack of Research

Choosing your wedding day floral designer shouldn't be a decision made lightly. Be sure to do your research! Remember to find someone that you feel comfortable with, who sees your vision and enhances it, and who makes the process seem simple and fun!

#2: Not Listening to Your Gut Instinct

Remember: this is your day. If you ever feel that knotted feeling in your stomach about a decision you already made, do your best to change it while you can! 

#3: Picking Flimsy or Overly Fragrant Flowers

There are some flowers that may sound pretty for a bouquet or centerpiece in theory, but in reality can affect your wedding day in a negative way. Ask your florist for their recommendations on flowers that hold up well in bouquets, especially for outdoor weddings. And try to limit how many strong-scented flowers you place at each dinner table -- they may overpower the room and affect your guests' appetites!

#4: Being Too Picky

Flowers are seasonal, and this is an important factor to remember! If you're having a spring wedding, but are hoping for flowers that bloom in fall, you will likely have a harder time obtaining the flowers you want. And even if they are available, chances are that they will be much more expensive than you'd like. 

#5: Color Choices

Many of the best wedding florists can assist you with selecting flower colors that would work well with your theme, setting and dress colors. Try to be open minded about the process! And strive for bridesmaid bouquets that aren't too monochromatic with their dresses -- you want the bouquets to stand out from their dresses, not blend in!
