Arranging a wedding ceremony can be quite draining in itself. With so many things to take care of, lists to be made, people to be invited and cocktails to be selected, it’s quite natural to feel exhausted and run out of ideas. Sometimes, you may even forget a thing or two, for example, creating a flower checklist before meeting the florist. No worries! This post will help you in this regard.
Keep scrolling to get an idea about an ideal flower checklist for the impending ceremony, as suggested by the experts at Beet and Yarrow Florist, to prevent you from missing out on anything. You’re always free to make your list though, as this is just an example of what all you need.
The ceremony flowers
You will need flowers for the aisle decorations, altar, pew or chair, as well as the entryway and welcome tables. Make sure you ask the florist for a category of flowers before you make any bookings. The blooms should match the decorations and themes, if any, so don’t forget to mention the same to the florist. Also, ask him/her if the flowers can be re-purposed to save on the costs.
Besides centerpieces, you’ll also need blooms for the cocktail table, bar arrangements, newlywed chair decorations, escort card table, buffet table, lounge area, cake table, getaway car, powder room decorations, and the list goes on. It can be embarrassing to miss any of these out, so make a mental note of the same.
Now, there’s no dearth of options in this category, as it solely depends on personal choice and preferences. Give a detailed idea to your florist about the bride and bridesmaids’ bouquet, floral crown of the bride, the tossing bouquet, the groom’s boutonniere, the bride’s parents’ bouquet and boutonniere, officiant’s and usher’s boutonniere and so on.
How to pick the best flowers for the occasion?
It’s always best to do some research to find out what will work best for your wedding, or you can also discuss the same with the event managers. When you visit the florist, you should give them a few choices and alternatives to help them arrange everything on time.
The most difficult job will be to find an experienced and knowledgeable florist, who has all know-hows of matching decorations and themes with the right set of flowers. If you can make that possible within the limited timeframe, everything else will be easy-peasy.
