The bride’s bouquet is the most important wedding dress accessory, so time needs to be taken when it comes to selecting the flowers for your big day. Many flowers have certain meanings, including love, change and luck, while others can mean fear and grief, so talk to your florist to make sure what the flowers meanings are.

Your wedding flowers should follow the theme of your wedding, so taking your wedding ideas scrapbook into the florist is a great idea. You can show them your theme, including bridesmaid dress colours, and particular items, and any other relevant things that can influence the flowers that could be used.

One of the biggest decisions when it comes to wedding flowers is if you want them to be real or fake. Artificial flowers have improved dramatically over recent years, making it difficult to tell them apart from real ones. The great benefit that comes with artificial flowers is that you can keep them forever as a memory of your wedding day.
