How to plan best the decoration for your wedding
Here are some helpful hints, how you may start thinking about the decoration for your wedding.
Wedding dress: Start of all is the wedding dress. It shows style and color. So if you have a dress in off-white, it would be recommended to go for flowers that match that tone of white. Real white calla lillies for example do fit much better to pure white dresses. For romantic dresses please choose romantic bouquets in round formats, for an elegant and flowing material of your dress is better to select some elegant and long version of a bouquet.
Color: The tonality of white gives the start to all other colors. Once choosen a colorcode for the bouquet, that should be followed up for all other details in the decoration, just to see a concept that runs through the whole day.
Location: If you plan the decoration for the dinner tables have a look on the surrounding. An outdoor-dinner may be much more natural and you need lots of candles to lighten up the place. If you are indoor in a barocque room, be more simple, to get the ambience not overloaden. In a cool or modern ambience try to warm it up by cosy colors and elements.
Flower season: think of the seasons for the flowers. The so much loved peonies are only available in May and June. It is possible to use flowers out of season, but the prices are high and the quality often is really scarse, so your bouquet will end up looking quite sad. The roses are very traditional and sometimes boring, but they are the most durable flowers and are available all year long. Thats why you find them so often in the decorations.
Budget: Give the wedding planner a budget for the decoration, that helps to figure out which details may be inclosed. Is there enough money for bottonwholes, for car decoration, for tables and bridesmaids and flower girls and so on.
Flowers briefing: this is an overview that will be developped by your wedding planner. And it helps all the way through the planning to decide whether a detail must be replaced or even cancelled or something else maybe added.
I hope this helps to think of first ideas and to come up with some contents for the flowers. It is then us in function of a wedding planner that develops the concept further and helps to realize a stunning look of your wedding day.
Have fun with it, Britta, Creative Wedding
