Beautiful weddings have one thing in common – stunning fresh flower arrangements galore!
Whether you are having a rustic garden wedding, or intending to bring nature indoors into your hotel reception, having the lovely, delicate sights and scents of flora all around you on this special day is something you can’t go wrong with.
But having flowers at a wedding isn’t just about picking out one’s favourite flowers and expecting it to fall into place. Instead, the best way to ensure that your flower selection complements your wedding is to engage a florist who has experience with events floral arrangements.
If you’re wondering whether it is worth it to spend a little more on this professional service, we’re here to tell you why it definitely is!
1. They will take your ideas to the next level
You might have some ideas in mind of what you would like your wedding decor to look like. But a wedding florist can help you take it to the next level!
With their experience and know-how, they are able to take the best of your ideas and make them even better. Oftentimes, people who engage wedding florists become pleasantly surprised at how the final setup looks many times more enchanting than they imagined! Indeed, this is the magic of a wedding florist who knows their stuff!
2. Florists know which flowers work best
Your favourite flowers may be great for a vase arrangement, but maybe not necessarily in a flower bouquet. These are some things your wedding florist will tell you – and it will help you get the best out of the flowers.
Florists will know exactly which flowers are suitable for your table centrepiece, bouquet, and flower tiara, if you so wish. They are knowledgable not just in the aesthetic department, but also in knowing which flowers are hardy enough to withstand the day of celebrations.
3. They have the big picture in mind
Most people don’t have an exact vision in mind when they decide that they want flowers at their wedding. At best, you may know what colour scheme and main flowers you would like. The role of the florist is then to tie it in with all your other decor aspects.
Let’s say you chanced upon a store selling beautiful, scented soy candles in Singapore and would like to have them as a table centrepiece along with a vase flower arrangement. Your wedding florist will be able to match the flowers and arrange them in a pleasing way so that the flowers and candles become part of the whole arrangement, rather than looking like disparate elements.
4. Florists know where flowers work best
Flowers look good almost anywhere – on the guest tables, lining the perimeter of the room, at the doorway, lining the railings, and so on. But having flowers everywhere will be overkill (and probably out of your budget!), so you have to decide where you want them to be.
Florists can help you arrive at a decision by advising you where flowers work best in that specific venue. They are also likely to have worked for countless other events before, so they know how to attach and arrange flowers for various settings.
Flowers of all kinds can be a great way to add beauty to your wedding. Everyone likes them and everyone will appreciate your flower arrangements as long as you incorporate them suitably into your wedding. If you have a theme for your event, a florist will help you highlight that theme with the right flowers for it!
