Wedding Flower Myths Debunked
When planning a wedding couples typically have a mental vision of what their perfect day looks like. The color scheme, the venue type, and so on. But when it comes down to actually turning those visions into a reality is when things can get a little tricky. Suddenly the question comes up of do I really need this? Or would this detail make a bigger impact on the day than another? It can be overwhelming to decipher what you really want and how to best go about creating the day you’ve always dreamed of. Well one detail you certainly don’t want to skimp on is your flowers! Whether you’re going for a soft and romantic aesthetic or modern chic vibe, your flowers are what pull the entire look together. From ceremony to reception and all the fabulous moments in between, they bring color to life and make your day as special as it should be.

Myth 1: I need to choose flowers that go along with the seasons colors.
This is YOUR day in every sense of the of the word and that means you should do whatever feels right to you. If you’re getting married in the fall but prefer bright yellows and pastel pinks, there is no harm in using flowers that express that. Talk with your florist if you’re looking for a more unique color scheme, they can point you in the direction of flower arrangements you may not see in you typical Pinterest search.

However, there’s a lot more that goes into wedding flowers many couples are surprised to hear. From preparation of accessories, to cleaning and cutting, to knowing exactly where to put what where, floral design is truly an art form.
