If you’re planning a wedding, chances are it’s the first (and hopefully only!) time you’ll do it. How are you supposed to know where to start? That’s where we come in. Our expert team has so much experience with weddings, nothing surprises us. Our team of florists in Blanchardstown design, create and deliver flowers for weddings nationwide every week. To answer one of the most basic wedding flower questions – who gets flowers at a wedding? Remember, stick to your budget, and don’t feel under pressure to overspend. We create wedding packages in our Dublin florist to suit all styles and budgets.
Arguably the most important of all the wedding flowers, the bouquet is something many brides (and sometimes grooms!) plan for many years. The bouquet draws the eye, adding a pop of colour to a white dress and are an eye-catcher for wedding pictures. It’s also a way for a bride to express her personality. Find a design, style or colour you like and show your florist for inspiration. Unfussy brides often give us full creative control to remove all stress for them. You can also get a second, more basic arrangement if you love the idea of throwing your bouquet but don’t want to ruin it!
While flowers often aren’t usually top priority for grooms, the addition of boutonnieres or buttonholes can really bring the bride and groom together. Matching the groom and best men’s buttonhole blooms to each other and the bridal bouquet looks fantastic in wedding pictures and shows a sense of design and style. While a rose or calla lily is a classic choice, many grooms are getting more creative with their boutonnieres and are wearing something a bit more personal. It could be a birth flower of the bride or their children or a pop of colour to match the wedding theme.
Usually, bridesmaids carry a smaller, more basic version of the bridal bouquet, tying the party together with a sense of unity. They don’t need to be exact copies or even be the same as each other but they should all complement the bouquet with a similar colour pallet. Bridesmaids’ bouquets also double as props for pictures of the rings, the cake table and more.
Flowers add depth and character to any wedding venue. While balloons and other décor can help, flowers add a special something that can’t be emulated. Venue flowers vary depending on the size and shape of the room. You can have table centrepieces and garlands, cake table decorations, entranceway flowers, wall hangings, flower arches, flower walls and so much more. The options are endless.
Last but not least, if you’re having a flower girl at your wedding, possibly a child or younger relation, they’ll need their own mini bouquet. Alternatively, you could give them a basket with petals to drop along the aisle before the bride’s big reveal.
