There are a variety of floral arrangements that you can create when designing your wedding bouquets and arrangements for your big day.
If you’re having floral arrangements done through a wedding planner or florist, they will handle all of the arrangements.
Here are some tips for choosing your wedding flowers:
- Keep your budget in mind: When planning your event, it is best to remember that most flowers will have to be flown in for the event, which can become costly. A floral theme based on local varieties offers a uniquely ‘Cayman’ feel to your wedding and might help to keep costs under control.
- Style and inspiration: During the planning of your wedding, Pinterest will become your best friend. Before making an appointment with your wedding planner or florist, we recommend selecting your favourite flowers, the style of the arrangements, and how you want your ideal bridal bouquet to be.
- Wedding theme and colour scheme: Although you may have a specific flower already in mind, remember that your wedding flowers should correspond with the overall theme of your wedding. You don’t want the colours to clash with your other decorations, and the flowers should also match the wedding location. Keep in mind that if your wedding is outside, certain flowers will quickly get withered due to the prolonged exposure to heat and sun.
By narrowing down your search based on style, colour, and theme, this will make the section process much easier, and it can be completed in little to no time, which means that you can spend more time finding the right dress and location.
If you are planning on making the floral arrangements yourself, you will need to follow all of the considerations mentioned above and also make sure that your timing is perfect. Creating the floral arrangements too early will mean that there is more potential for them to get withered before the wedding while deciding to make them too late would put stress on the bride and bridal party.
We recommend using artificial flowers if you choose to DIY. Using artificial flowers means that they can be made way before the night of the wedding, and you won’t have to worry about them dying before the wedding! You can also be creative and use other items, such as origami, shells, pearls, and even brooches, to make your bouquets.
