Wedding Days: Love's in Bloom...Anyone Seen the Flowers?

By Peter Carnater

Everyone hopes to have a picture-perfect wedding day.

Getting to that point takes untold amounts of time, money,

energy and patience. Even the tiniest detail cannot be

left unchecked, if we have any hope of eluding Murphy's

Law. These days, brides-to-be must even consider potential

allergic reactions to their flowers, in addition to the

more traditional details. It's enough to crush the faint

of heart.

A big item on the wedding planning list is the flowers for

the church, the wedding party and the reception. It that

goes wrong, it can be a real disaster. Many problems can

arise in this area, such as flowers not being delivered on

time, not fresh, or not the flowers the bride ordered. Just

imagine if your perfectly orchestrated color scheme is

ruined because the wrong colored flowers arrived. Just try

sending them back or getting new ones in time. Besides the

ambiance of the wedding being ruined, there is now an upset

bride. Taking certain precautions may avoid this disaster.

The first detail to be attended to is the color scheme you

are choosing.Be sure to be decide this well advance, or

you will guarantee yoursel a headache.You will usually base

the colors of the flowers on the colors of the bridesmaids'

dresses, so decide on that before you start to look at

flowers. Stick to your color scheme and then pick flowers

in that color scheme. Be definite about the color. Some

flowers are available in just about every colors, while

others are limited. Don't try to pick a specific type of

flower, it may not work with that color scheme, just start

with the color. Bring swatches and be ready to complement

rather than match. Before that first crucial meeting with

the florist, certain steps will prepare you.

Even though, nowadays, many flowers are available all year

long, you need to take the season of your wedding into

account when you are choosing your flowers. There is a

certain charm added to the wedding if the flowers suit the

season. Sunflowers in the middle of winter may not convey

the tone you want, plus out of season flowers arel probably

be more expensive. Formal church weddings need more

sophisticated arrangements than a wedding on the beach, so

you need to consider the type of wedding you're planning.

When you are planning the budget for your flowers, keep

your total wedding budget in mind. A rule of thumb is to

spend ten to fifteen percent of your total wedding budget

on the flowers. Spending more than that will cause you to

skimp on other more important items. Discuss your budget

and its limitations honestly with your florist at the very

beginning. He can work with you to explore different ideas

that will make your day perfect and still keep this lovely

part of your wedding in budget.

You also have to consider the size of the bouquets for both

you and your bridesmaids,the shade of your gown, if you are

going to have an additional bouquet to toss, and the

temperature of the season, if you will be outdoors for any

lenghth of time. (Many flowers react badly to very cold

temperatures.) And as if that is not enough to worry about,

you need to worry about pollen that may stain your gown.

(For example, lilies should have stamens removed because

of this problem.) Be flexible, and make sure you take the

advice of your florist.He wants your day to be perfect too.
