3 Things To Keep In Mind For Your Blooms

Work with proportions: Your bridal bouquet is the most photographed accessory. It is so important to remember that your bouquet and you should work well together! We sometime forget about proportions. If you’re a petite woman, let your florist know that you would prefer a more compact, rounded floral design so it doesn’t overpower your frame.  And if you’re a taller bride, try the cascading trend or ask for longer stems.

Learn your seasons: Not all flowers are available year round for your wedding date. Use in-season blooms and you’ll get the freshest flowers. But if you must, learn your look-a-likes. Find substitutes to achieve the same style. For example, garden roses often stand in for peonies, and hydrangeas and sweet peas. Ask for florist, trust your florist.

Make them personal: Infuse your bouquet with a wrap such as your grandmother’s handkerchief or attached a photo locket of late loved ones. The touch of sentiment goes a long way to making it even more memorable. Also it can serve as your something borrowed!
