Montreal Weddings 's advice on choosing wedding flowers
At least once in your life, you have probably been to a florist and bought flowers for a special occasion. Flowers have the power to make people smile as soon as they look at them, smell them or hold them. Your wedding day is the perfect occasion to surround yourself with your favorite flowers. They will enhance your photos and wedding decor, which is why selecting them deserves your full attention.
Here are a few items to consider:
Once you have established your wedding budget and assessed your needs, you must find a florist that you trust and who is available on your wedding day. It is recommended that you bring a photo of your wedding dress (this will impact the shape and size of the bouquet), and that you mention which flowers you prefer, in one or two colors, that will appear here and there in all decor elements of the wedding.
Flowers according to season
By opting for seasonal flowers, you can save money and, by the same token, ensure the quality of the flowers.
Winter: Winter is the season for bulb flowers. We recommend hyacinths, tulips, amaryllis, muscari and, of course, other flowers such anemones, hellebores and ranunculus. They are especially strong and thus hold up well in a bouquet.
Spring: In the spring, you have peonies, sweet peas, lilacs, poppies and viburnums. These flowers smell great, and they are light and so beautiful.
Summer: In the summertime, go with hydrangeas, delphiniums, roses, astilbes and lisianthus. These withstand heat, provided you do not leave them out in the sun.
Fall: You should opt for dahlias and, most importantly, berries. All of these make for a full bouquet, they are very nice to look at, with lots of color, and are extremely light! They also perfectly embody the fall season.
