Choosing Wedding Flowers and Where to Find Bridal Bouquets on the Sunshine Coast

Selecting your flowers is one of the most fun and exciting parts of wedding planning. However, there’s more to it than simply picking your favourite flowers and ordering them in your wedding colours. Here are a few things to keep in mind when talking to your florist and trying to create the look you’re after. For starters, do a little homework before meeting with your florist. Learn the names of the flowers you like as well as some basic floral terms, such as “cascade,” “posy,” and other types of bouquets and floral details. Some other tips include:

Consider Your Venue

Where you'll be having your wedding will influence your floral decisions significantly. For example, if you're marrying in a botanical garden or park, you can keep your flowers to a minimum. You'll need more flowers for an indoor venue where the flowers you provide will be the only ones around, so choose flowers that look like they belong. If you're having your reception in a formal ballroom, wildflower clusters might look out of place. Finally, your table configuration (long banquet-style tables vs round tables, for instance) can also influence the size, shape, and style of your centrepieces.

Show, Don’t Just Tell

When you’re consulting with your florist about your bridal flowers on the Sunshine Coast – and all your other wedding flowers – it’s a good idea to show pictures that reflect your style and colour choices. Show your florist a fabric swatch from your bridesmaid dresses, a picture of your wedding gown, and anything else that will give the florist a clearer idea of the look you want. However, don’t expect exact replicas of your pictures; florists are artists, and a good florist wants to create a one-of-a-kind look for your unique wedding. Communicate what you like about an archway or centrepiece, but keep an open mind when it comes to modifications, especially when it comes to live flowers. It might be just the colours that you like about an arrangement, or maybe the loose, deconstructed feel.

Consider that Certain Flowers Evoke Certain Styles

As you choose wedding flowers such as your bridal bouquet on the Sunshine Coast, keep in mind that your flowers can and should reflect your wedding style and theme. Lush arrangements of big, soft blooms are romantic; tight bunches of traditional bridal flowers are more classic. For bridal bouquets and other arrangements, your florist will work with you to create a style that matches the overall style of your wedding.
