The floral decorations for the wedding

The floral decorations for the wedding will accompany your most beautiful day and must first of all reflect the style, tone and atmosphere that you will have given throughout the event: the daisies, for example, adapt perfectly to a more casual wedding, perhaps to the open, while sumptuous roses give the whole a more formal tone.

The floral decoration will also have to represent the personality of the couple: in fact, it can be sober and elegant, or romantic, or playful, or strong and protagonist.

Regarding the choice of flowers for the Catholic wedding ceremony, for the wedding reception and for the bouquet, our first advice is to contact expert wedding florists, who will be able to advise and guide you inside the fascinating and complex botanical world showing you albums and photographs of other weddings set up.

Some rules to follow on floral decoration for the wedding

It is preferable that whoever takes care of your floral decoration, before giving you proposals, make an inspection on the places of the ceremony and reception.

Floral decorations should be chosen at least two months before the wedding.

The components of the wedding floral arrangements must be in harmony with each other: the bouquet must harmonize with the flowers of the church, the reception and the car for the wedding.

Remember to provide a flower for the buttonhole of the groom, of the male witnesses and of the fathers of the spouses.

A very appreciated gesture is to give all guests men a flower to wear in their buttonhole at the entrance of the church, while for women a mini-bouquet composed of some flowers present in the bride’s bouquet.

Bridesmaids will not have to bring any bouquet.

The flowers chosen must not have a very strong smell: otherwise you would risk having the guests “drunk” by the essence after a few hours or having covered the perfumes of the dishes of the wedding banquet.

It is advisable that the choice falls on seasonal flowers : this will lead to a reduction in the budget to be dedicated to the decoration.

The flowers used to decorate the church or the place for a civil wedding  can be transported to the location for the reception. This will not only result in significant economic savings but will also allow you to avoid unnecessary waste of flowers.

Generally 10% of the budget allocated for the entire wedding will be used for the floral decoration.

Generally the base of the floral decoration is white, which has always been the representative color of the wedding, to which another color can be added, such as yellow, blue, blue, orange, pink or red.

It is strongly discouraged to create a strong mix of colors.

Blue and blues are colors that, even if cold, invite to recollection and intimacy.

Yellow, red and orange, on the other hand, are bright colors, cheerful even if they invite little to silence.

The flowers can also be combined with herbs and green plants.

It is possible to add fruits to the floral decorations of the wedding such as bunches of grapes in autumn, citrus fruits or pomegranates for a winter wedding, cheerful lemons or green apples for the summer wedding.
