Wedding flowers are right up there with the dress and the cake on the list of the most important aspects of your wedding day. If you are a hands-on type of person and would love to be able to say that you made your own wedding flowers and they were beautiful, then enrolling in a do-it-yourself program with your local florist may be just what you’re looking for.
While you’ll have an expert designer on hand to help you along the way, these tips can be helpful as you prepare for your day of floral fun:
Find pictures of designs you like. When you initially speak to your florist about your wedding flowers, you’ll go over which types and style of flowers you want. Keep a flower journal filled with your favorite designs and bring it with you to your do-it-yourself session to have as a point of reference.
Don’t be afraid to get creative. Your wedding flowers do not have to look exactly like those you find in bridal magazines. If you like an idea, then run with it. Just be sure that you tell your florist well ahead of time about the specific types of flowers you want so that those flowers will be available for use when the time comes.
Ask for help. Some flowers can bruise easily, such as gardenias and orchids, and require special care when designing. If you think you want to incorporate these flowers into your wedding design, make sure to ask for professional assistance. In addition, don’t be afraid to ask for a helping hand if your design isn’t coming together the way you want it to. Your florist knows all of the special tips and tricks for achieving different looks.
