Wedding Flower Etiquette

As everyone knows, more marriages happen during from Spring thru Fall then the winter months, and the wedding season is quick approaching as I was reminded of when I was asked a very important question about wedding flower etiquette: Who is responsible for purchasing the wedding flowers, the brides parents, or the grooms?

Well this is a great question. Traditionally it is the bride’s side that pays for the wedding flowers. However, with today’s economy, many of the wedding traditions are falling to the wayside due to finances on everyone’s part. Traditionally, the bride’s side pays for the wedding and the grooms side pays for the honeymoon but more and more couples are either joining expenses and even more couples are funding their entire wedding and honeymoon. If one side of the new soon to be wedded couples’ parents is more strapped for funds, it is hard to ask for something they do not have to give. This is where it pays off for couples to have longer engagements in order to help off set some of the expenses by starting a wedding savings fund. However, if both families are financially capable, leaving you able to stick with tradition, then the bride’s side picks up the flower expense.

If you are newly engaged, it is smart to begin planning what type of flowers you wish to have at your wedding regardless of who is footing the bill. By doing so you have a good estimate on what you will need financially for the wedding flowers and can work it to fit whatever budget.

Winter Wedding Flowers

When planning a winter wedding, one may think the flower choices are limited due to the season. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In all actuality, there are some flowers that are just better suited for the winter and the natural blooming time in other parts of the world which make them perfect for a winter wonderland wedding theme.

Also it is important to keep in mind, that just because certain flowers are no longer blooming in your back yard doesn’t mean they are not blooming in another part of the world. Most wedding flowers of choice are available year round.

Some of the more commonly used flowers ion wedding flower arrangements are daisies, roses, and tulips in deep rich colors like burgundy and deep reds. If you live in northern climates where snow is a fact of life, accenting your wedding in solid blocks of color with your flowers plays nicely off the whitened landscapes of winter. Accents of gold and silver also play nicely in the winter wedding flower theme. Other considerations can be the traditional Christmas plaid or a blue/white/silver winter wedding flower theme.

Your florist from Brant Florist can help you select the perfect wedding flower arrangements that will set your theme and provide you with all the beauty you dreamed about for your winter wedding.

Flowers for Your Wedding

Wedding Flowers: When it comes to flowers, Weddings are one of the largest events.  More flowers are used on a single wedding day than any other day of the year.  Weddings are big occasions for everyone involved; from the bride all the way down to the caterer – and the flowers are no exception.  The flowers are an important part of the wedding.  Without the flowers a wedding would be a very drab affair.  The flowers add decoration to the wedding location, but they also give the wedding energy and life.

Many times the wedding flowers are made up from the favorite blooms of the bride-to-be along with other flowers for the color of the bloom, which will fit in with the dress colors chosen by the bride-to-be.  The flowers and the colors of the wedding theme will go hand in hand.  It has been said that many look at the wedding flower arrangements online, but most never buy their wedding flower arrangement from the web.

Many brides-to-be don’t really have a clue as to the type of arrangement or how they want their bouquet arranged, so they must look at pictures.  Because weddings take so much time to plan, and in almost all parts of the planning the bride-to-be must be present, so it stands to reason the bride-to-be does not have a lot of free time when the wedding is in the planning stages.

In order for them to have some ideas regarding the wedding arrangements, the bride needs to look at pictures.  Her options there would be to visit the florist and look at the pictures they have in books, or they can look on the web.  The web can be accessed at all hours of the day or night. Many smaller florists close by 5 or 6pm and don’t open again until 9 or 10am the following day. The bride-to-be will find it easier to find time to look on the web.  She will be able to look at the pictures several times before making her final decision.  She can then print out the pictures to take to the local florist or to give to her wedding planner.

It is unclear why more brides-to-be don’t order their wedding flowers online.  Maybe they are not aware of how an FTD florist works.  Maybe she believes the UPS or the FedEx driver will be the ones who will deliver her wedding arrangements to the chapel.  However, if she lives in the Burlington, Ontario area of Canada, the florist on the web she is looking at could also be the local florist she chooses for her wedding arrangements.  Brant Florist in Ontario has an extensive web site, which includes wedding arrangement as well as a location close by in Burlington.
