Wedding Flowers – With Love From Kat

A single of the things I knew I preferred to splurge on for our wedding ceremony, were being the bouquets. I had a quite particular eyesight in mind and preferred them to really wow us when we observed them! Listed here are my guidelines on how to make your aspiration wedding bouquets come to lifestyle.

How To Choose a Florist

Given that we obtained married on Nantucket, which is a pretty small island with limited suppliers, we experienced about 3 florists full to pick from. Although we could have flown an individual in from NYC – it was just also sophisticated logistics intelligent. I did extensive study prior to talking to the florists and came geared up with images of flower arrangements I preferred and didn’t like. I also took screenshots of arrangements I preferred that each florist experienced by now shared on their Instagram and web site. Then, I set up calls with just about every a person to see their availability, fees, and if they could resource the kind of bouquets I was requesting. I ended up heading with the most versatile and accommodating florist who was super responsive.

Flower Check + Trial Procedure

It is so significant to do a “test” or trial procedure with your florist prior to the wedding day. Ask your florist to make a small size arrangement of whichever will be heading on your tables, arch or bouquet. In my circumstance we only needed to do a sample table arrangement because we were employing all baby’s breath for the bouquet (straightforward – as well as I gave a in depth photograph illustration), and the exact flowers for the arch and table. It took 3 attempts to get the sample arrangement suitable before I officially signed off on them producing anything. Never be concerned to hop on a simply call, send a lot more in depth images and get definitely granular about what you want.

Tips for Picking out Flowers

If you are doing work with a planner, she will be able to assist and advise you, and then of course there is a bevy of inspiration on Pinterest, Brides, and many others. I required a definitely tasteful, cleanse and advanced search so we went with all polar white roses and thick silver dollar eucalyptus. They had to use a several other sorts of greenery hidden in the arch to pad it, but those 2 flowers were the standouts. For my bouquet, I originally needed Lily of the Valley but it wasn’t in period and was impossible to get a definitely new bunch transported to the island, so I went with a basic baby’s breath. I ended up liking it additional since it didn’t have eco-friendly in it that would have clashed with the olive tone of the eucalyptus. I questioned for a straightforward white gross grain ribbon to be tied all over the stems.

Flower Arch

I needed a really total, thick arch – and was extremely precise about actual proportions. I imagine we finished up going with a 9″x6″ arch that experienced in excess of a foot of thickness.


My suggestions is don’t be frightened to get Super market, in-depth and certain with your florist! They can not read your head and you might have a various eyesight in mind than what they commonly generate so talk up. Also, be positive to clarify exactly how tall you expect/want the arrangements to be, how thick (in inches), what shade vases you want, what “filler” bouquets you want/never want, etc. Filler flowers slice the expense – and I discover them dreadful on the lookout lol so I explained I didn’t want to see ANY filler florals popping out. These are all issues to continue to keep in mind when you’re ordering flowers for your subsequent occasion, function or even a good friend! x
