Get maximum impact from your wedding flowers

Your wedding day is a reflection of your love story, and every detail, from the venue to the décor, plays a special role in creating special memories. Flowers hold a special significance, adding beauty, romance, and personality to your celebration. As a wedding florist, I understand the importance of maximising the impact of your wedding flowers and budget. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your floral arrangements and create an unforgettable experience for you and your guests.


Communicate your vision


The key to getting the most impact from your wedding flowers is effective communication with your florist. Take the time to articulate your vision, style and priorities during your consultation. The more your florist understands your vision, the better they can tailor their designs to suit your style and preferences.


Think about what’s most important to you


I advise clients to think about prioritising their floral items and putting their budget towards the things that matter most. Is it the ceremony, the personal items, the reception? You don’t have to have a little bit everywhere; you can get maximum impact by opting to invest your budget in one or two areas for more impact. So, if the ceremony florals are the most important part of the day for you, opt for a statement arch or décor around the ceremony. Think quality over quantity, it’s better to have a few stunning arrangements than an abundance of mediocre ones.


Incorporate personal touches


Infuse your wedding flowers with personal touches that reflect your unique love story and personalities as a couple. Consider incorporating meaningful blooms that hold sentimental value, such as flowers from your first date or a family member’s favourite flower. Some flowers have sentimental meaning such as adding rosemary to remember someone who can’t be there. These thoughtful details will make your floral arrangements feel truly special and meaningful.


Re-use your arrangements

One way to maximise your florals is to make sure they are seen and used throughout the day. There’s nothing worse than gorgeous florals that are only seen for an hour at the ceremony. Most venues will have staff that can move arrangements from the ceremony to reception areas and your florist can brief them on styling. Here are just a few ideas:

Pew ends can be moved to the reception area.

Arrangements for the registrar’s table can be re-purposed for the top table.

Bridesmaid’s bouquets can be placed in vases around the venue after the ceremony.


Work with the season


As well as being kind to the environment, flowers that are in season will be more readily available locally. They may also be of higher quality than imported alternatives that have been forced to bloom out of season or treated with chemicals. Sourcing specific blooms out of season is expensive. Your florist can help you think about what flowers are available seasonally. I advise couples to think about the texture and shape of the flower you want rather than a specific variety – then it’s easier to look for seasonal options.


Trust your florist's expertise


Trust in your florist's expertise and creativity to bring your vision to life. Share your ideas and be open to their suggestions and recommendations. Experienced wedding florists have a wealth of knowledge and experience in creating stunning floral designs. By working collaboratively with your florist, you can ensure that your wedding flowers make a lasting impact and exceed your expectations.


Your wedding flowers have the power to transform your celebration into an unforgettable experience. Remember what’s important to you and you’ll be able to enjoy wonderful blooms on your special day.
