Though a wedding is a joyous and intimate affair, you would love to celebrate this great event in the presence of all your friends, family and colleagues. However, planning a wedding is pretty complicated even if you know you can hire an event manager because there are so many tiny details that need your careful supervision. Flowers are a part of our lives and they play a very important role in all major celebrations. So when there is an important event like a wedding, you know how careful you should be.
Though fleeting in beauty, essence and aroma, a wedding ceremony is never complete without a huge horde of wedding flowers decorating the halls. Different flowers have different meanings and the presence of flowers adds to the spirit of the event.So if you are planning your wedding for this season, then you must find the best florist in the area to help you choose the right flowers. The florist will help you get the best depending on the theme of your wedding. You must communicate your likes and dislikes to the florist, so she will have an idea of how to go about it. Let her know what kind of flowers you fancy and what all you don’t. If the flowers of your choice are extremely expensive or out of season, then she will help you get the next best flower. If you are allergic to any particular flower, don’t forget to let her know that too. You can also inform her of your budget, so she will know in the beginning itself how to select and what to.
I am on a Budget, so how should I go about it?
If you don’t like to spend too much money on wedding flowers, then you could plan your wedding around Christmas, Easter or similar occasions. That way the church will already be decorated with flowers, so you will have to bring in only a few more. If you are planning a reception, then you can have it in a garden that is in full bloom, so you don’t have to do too much to decorate the area, only maybe the chairs, tables and pillars. This would be a great idea if you have a well-manicured lawn at home. If not, then you arrange to have the reception in your parents’ home, provided they have a lovely garden. Even if you are not getting married during special festivals and events, you can lessen the amount of flowers for the wedding. After all, it is you and your partner that people are going to concentrate on, so if you cannot afford to put in too many flowers, nobody is going to blame you. For the reception, people will be spending lots of time in their pre-destined spots, so they will have time to enjoy the flowers and its scents. And you can arrange for the aisle flowers (once the wedding in the church is over) to be decorated as centerpieces in the reception hall. Similarly, you can also arrange for the altar flowers to be arranged on the buffet table. This way you can ensure that the flowers are not wasted.
