After choosing your wedding venue in Melbourne and the reception hall, the next step is choosing your flowers. Every girl when dreaming of the perfect wedding always has in mind the perfect wedding bouquet to go with it. When you are looking around for a florist, ask your friends and relatives who they used and if they were satisfied. Get as much input as you can before you go flower shopping.
So what is the cost of an average wedding bouquet? You should figure to spend between 8 to 10 percent of your wedding budget total goes toward flowers. When choosing a florist or a floral designer, be aware if they handle the extras involved. There are centerpieces for the tables, the bride’s bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquet. Corsages for the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom are to be chosen. There are the corsages for the grandmothers and anyone you want to single out to be discussed. You need to make a decision about boutonnieres for the groom, the best man and the groomsmen as well as the fathers of the bride and groom. If you’re being married in a church, you may want to consider alter flowers, pew bows and single roses to hand the mothers. You will need an aisle runner and the list goes on. If you can find one florist who can handle all of those details, it will save you a lot of headaches.
When you are choosing flowers for your bouquet, bring pictures, clippings, notes and photos from magazines. The floral designer will design a bouquet as close to the design you have chosen as possible. You need to tell her your budget, any helpful information, including what flowers you dislike as well as like. She will need to know what color choice your wedding colors are. She will have suggestions and ideas which she will discuss with you. A good floral designer will listen to what you have to say and then work her suggestions around your thoughts.
When checking out floral designers, see what style they like to use. Some floral designers prefer traditional, simplistic, or a more contemporary styles. Ask the floral designer to see photos of her previous work. Ask her for references for you to check from her previous Melbourne wedding venues. She should be able to offer you choices of alternate flowers which are just as pretty as the ones you wanted if an alternative needs to be chosen. The floral designer should be able to match the colors of your wedding with several different options of ribbons. You also need to find out if she is doing more than just your wedding that day. If she is, find out who will be delivering and setting up your wedding flowers and extras.
A good floral designer should be able to arrange your bouquet no matter what style you choose. An excellent floral designer should cause your chin to drop when your bouquet is presented to you.
