At Rosies & Posies Sunnyvale florist, we know that your wedding is one of the most important days of your life and you want it to be perfect. Flowers, which are symbols of love, life, and hope, are an important aspect of your wedding. Regardless of your personal taste or budget, we can help you select the perfect wedding flowers for your big day.
How to Choose Wedding Flowers
Choosing flowers for your wedding can be an overwhelming. When you start looking through all of the wedding bouquets and arrangements, you will probably find yourself discovering flowers you didn’t even knew existed. With the help of the experienced floral artists at Rosies & Posies Sunnyvale, selecting the perfect flowers for your wedding can be fun instead of a chore. We work on an individual level with couples, respectfully taking into consideration their budget and personal styles. California wedding flower consultations are free, as are sample arrangements. Here are some of the elements we use to come up with ideas for your wedding flowers.
Your Weddding Dress
As a general rule, bigger wedding bouquets should be used for bigger wedding dresses. The shape of the bouquet can also be used to accentuate the dress. For example, a vintage posy bouquet would suit a full-skirted wedding dress whereas a trailing bouquet would better suit a slim-fitting dress. Of course, you will also want to consider the color of your dress. While white bouquets are beautiful, they won’t be readily visible against your dress during the ceremony or in pictures. Bouquets which are too vivid in color might overwhelm the dress.
Your Wedding Theme
Many brides start their wedding preparations by choosing a color scheme. Flowers come in just about every color you can imagine, so it should not be a problem finding beautiful flowers to match your wedding colors. If you have a specific theme for your wedding, such as a “vintage” or “chic” theme, we will also consider this when selecting wedding flowers.
No matter how beautiful a flower arrangement is, it won’t be right for your wedding unless it suits your personality. If you are more of a traditionalist, then you might want to choose classic white roses for your wedding flowers. If you consider yourself more modern or adventurous, then exotic flowers like orchids might be a better choice. For whimsical or nature-loving personalities, wildflowers can make stunning floral arrangements for weddings.
What Types of Wedding Flowers Do You Need?
Every wedding is a unique, special event and will require an individualized approach to floral arrangements. However, there are three general types of flowers you will need to consider for your wedding.
Flowers for the Wedding Party
The bride’s wedding bouquet is the most important decision here, but you will also want to find matching wedding boutonnieres and corsages for the men and women in the wedding party.
Flowers for the Wedding Ceremony
Flowers for the wedding ceremony can be as simple as a few exquisite arrangements at the altar and along the aisles, or they can be lavish decorations that extend to the most intimate details, like ring bearer pillows made from flowers.
Flowers for the Wedding Reception
It is traditional to have a large floral arrangement at the bride and groom’s table as well as smaller arrangements at the guests’ tables. Flowers are also commonly used for decorating the wedding reception hall and the wedding cake. Depending on your budget and desires, Rosies & Posies Sunnyvale florist can transform entire spaces using wedding flowers throughout the reception hall.
