    What factors to consider when choosing wedding flowers?

  • Season: Choosing flowers in season will not only guaranty quality but will save you dearly. It will also lend guidance if you want to expand on color palettes associated with spring, summer, fall or winter.
  • Time of day: If you are having an outdoors wedding, daylight will reflect off white, multicolor, solid and bright colored flowers beautifully. Indoor or nighttime lighting will be aided by white and lighter shades of different hues.
  • Venue: Venue lighting and colors will have the same influence as time of day and season colors.
  • Theme: How you weave the story of your relationship and the meaning of the bond you are entering and celebrating that day.
  • SO, WHAT DOES THE FLOWERS GUY HAVE TO SAY ABOUT WHAT OTHER WEDDING FLOWERS (BESIDES CARNATIONS, ROSES & PEONIES)?

    Beauty is something to which we are naturally predisposed to, something that we both react and are drawn to. [1] We each have a unique relationship with what we are attracted to and consider beautiful and something that is true to both us and flowers, for it is through their blooms that plants survive because it is through flowers that plants weave and attract, that plants naturally bond. What tastes in flowers, what in their blooms catches your eye, is as much a matter of personal choice and style, as about your love story, and something you can easily incorporate to your wedding by making any flower you like most, part of your wedding.

    Something unique to the character of your relationship, for your choice in flowers as in partner may be too, may very well be that that is not obvious to others..
