Wedding trends come and go but wedding flowers have always been an important part of the day. Not only do they add an air of luxury to your wedding day, they are also part of a centuries-long tradition and allow you to add your personal style and creativity. If you have no idea how to pick wedding flowers, Belles Fleurs can help you plan everything from the bouquets to the boutonnieres in a fun and exciting way.

One of the most important parts of wedding planning is the budget. You need to know what the parameters are for spending, so you don’t get into debt. Wedding flowers should be added to the expense list for your day after some consultations with florists and guide prices so you know how extravagant your flower displays can be. At Belles Fleurs, we work with couples to create bespoke wedding packages to suit any budget or style. We agree on costs and products so there are no surprises on the day.
This is likely your first and only wedding so you can’t draw on experience for suppliers. Asking family and friends who recently married for advice and recommendations is key to a reliable supplier. Consider local and independent florists like Belles Fleurs who put their heart and soul into each bouquet and creation, going above and beyond to impress our customers. If you’re unsure about a supplier, check their Google reviews or ask for reviews from previous customers. Choose a reputable and reliable wedding florist for your day to ensure there are no last-minute disasters.
Start with a theme for your flowers. Do you want to complement or contrast the wedding dress? Do you want to go for a natural colour scheme or something bold and bright? Use your bridesmaid’s dresses and the décor of the room as inspiration for your wedding flowers. If you provide fabric swatches, colour options and pictures to your florist we can help you make a good colour choice. Dahlias, carnations, mums, roses, tulips, and lilies are just a few of the flowers that come in the widest variety of colours.
You need to decide how big you want to go with your wedding flowers. Are you planning a small and intimate wedding where only a bridal bouquet is needed or is it a huge, over-the-top celebration that requires a bigger floral display? A good florist can cater to all wants and needs for a wedding from bouquets and boutonnieres to table centres and decorative floral displays. Our local florist in Blanchardstown has catered to all types of wedding and have experience with even the most unusual requests. Nothing is too much to ask and we’ll tailor your floral wedding package to suit your needs.
As always, considering the season will affect not only the style but the price of your wedding flowers. In-season flowers last longer, are more freely available and are brighter than artificially grown blooms. Think about the types of flowers that are normally seen around the time of year when you’re getting married, for example, tulips and peonies in spring, or dahlias and chrysanthemums in autumn. It will also reduce their carbon footprint and the overall cost of your package.
