Finding Flowers & Florists for Your Wedding

A wedding doesn’t feel complete without flowers, and lots of them. The flowers for your wedding are completely up to you, of course, and if it is a small wedding you don’t need to break the bank on flowers.  Find a color you love and a flower that makes you happy. There are so many options for flowers that it can get overwhelming. Think of the three most important things: how much can you spend, what colors do you want, and what style are you going for (formal/informal). If you can answer these three then you will be able to limit the options and find exactly what you’re looking for. Then go to a couple local places and check online to see what options are best suited for you.

Should I Buy Wedding Flowers Online

We love local florists and supporting small flower businesses. They are down to earth, and will do everything they can to make sure you’re happy about the arrangements. They also have fresh flowers, and wont send you off with something that will die before the wedding. Unfortunately, due to covid lots of flower shops have had to close down, so if your local one is still open then see what they have to offer and if it fits your style. These shops can give you the most accurate pricing because they know exactly what you want.

Online is great too! They have a large selection of options, and you can find almost anything. If online is the best option for you then definitely go for it. They usually have nice bundles and all the prices are posted for you to see. However, the prices posted may change depending on what you need for your wedding. It is easy and accessible, and they also are going to offer you the best they can do. Depending on where you get them you really only have to worry about the quality of the flowers because you haven’t seen them in person. Most places are good about that because they know how delicate flowers are. Online is perfect to brose if you have no idea where to start.

 

What is the average cost of Wedding Flowers?

A bridal bouquet can be from $40-200, and that is just for the bride. Flowers are not cheap, and anyone who has worked with flowers can tell you why. You’re paying for the good quality, and the care of them. Most places have prices for bundles based on the guest size and how many people in the wedding party need flowers. They can rage from $40 for a single bouquet to over $1000 for the whole set up. In general couples will spend between $700 – 2500 in flowers alone. Flowers are beautiful and absolutely worth the money, but you should be cautious of how much you’re willing to spend. 

 

Should I DIY my Wedding Flowers?

Yes!! If you are crafty and know that you can make something beautiful that you’ll love then go for it. You might save some money by doing it yourself, and you’ll feel good about what you have accomplished. However, this is a big commitment and you’re going to be very busy with planning and shopping. Do it if you can, but be prepared in case things get too difficult. If you have family willing to help this is a task im sure they’d be willing to take on for you.

 

How to DIY Wedding Flowers.

You should start with choosing the right flowers for your wedding, and then consider the strength of the stems. You may need some practice so you don’t break the stems, but once you get through that the rest is up to you. You ideally want to wrap the stems in something so that they don’t move around and keep their shape while being carried. For table arrangement you will have to get a little more creative, but vases are always stunning and you can go for a floating flower look.

What Flowers Do I Need for my Wedding?

This is up to you and the type of wedding you are going for. You will need a bride bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets, and boutonnieres. That will cover the wedding party. From there you have a little more freedom on what you want. Usually the mothers and grandmothers of the couple get corsages. You may also want to consider table arrangements which are a really big part of how the overall wedding looks. If you want a flower arch then get the flower arch. They’re stunning and take amazing pictures, but that’s all up to you to decide.

 

Where to Find the Best Wedding Flowers Online

Finding flowers online is easier than ever. Luckily, due to covid, many flower companies have had to up their websites to keep up. This means everything you could dream of they have found a way to offer it to you online. If you’re looking for more rare flowers that you local shop may not have then online will be the perfect place for you. It is easy and if you’re on a time crunch then online way be the best option for you, and you’re  more likely to find a sale with the online sites.

Put the foam into the box and stick those flowers right in and make the style you love. You can also do this with real flowers, or a mix of both. Make sure you stuff it with flowers so you can’t see the green foam underneath.

You can also buy lace at Micheals and use that to wrap bouquets to keep them together.
