Wedding is a grand occasion of one’s life and the entire family. This occasion is generally lived as a celebration that is marked by pomp and fervour and the icons of music, dance & food are lived with enthusiasm. Decoration of the house is also an integral component and we all seek to beautify our house with the best of the elements. Flowers are must for such decoration as these offers a fine display of colours and vibrance at the wedding house. No wonder we try to look out for the best ones so that the finest appeal is developed. However, it should be stated that flowers are really fragile and delicate natural products that need to be selected and taken care of properly. So here are the dos and don’ts for the flowers meant for the wedding decoration.
The significant points to consider -
- Make the selection of the flowers
This is the most important of all the points. The selection of the flowers should be done with care, for upon this dimension depends everything else. Have a look at the available varieties and choices in the market or with your florist and after considering the vital dimensions of cost and others, make out your choice. A diversified spectrum should always be decided upon.
- Do consider the cost factor
Cost is the first determinant in the selection process. As the choices are spread before you, take into account the cost of each such that the overall budget could be assessed roughly. This will allow making the choice in an informed manner.
- Balance the seasonal and rarer species
Balancing the seasonal and rare or outbound flowers’ species is very much necessary. The seasonal flowers and the local varieties could be available at a lesser cost and thus could be procured in more quantities. The foreign species on the other hand would not only require more time to reach but are also definitely costly due to the transportation costs. The non-seasonal ones or the rarer types are also expensive.
- Decide upon the concentration and the abundance
The concentration and the abundance of the flowers in the décor patterns could be manipulated as per the choices and cost that have been decided by you and the florist. You can have a higher concentration of the regional and easily available cheaper varieties at the lesser cost.
- The colours – it is your fancy segment!
Choose the colours of the flowers as per your fancies. It is wholly your department. Whether you like red jerbera coupled with white lilies or the other combinations, it is up to you. But always make your choice; instead of leaving everything to the florist.
- Check the season – dry summers or humid winters
Always check whether a particular flower would survive for long in the particular season in which the wedding is planned!
What you should avoid as for the wedding flowers
- Never go for a unified décor plan – be selective
Be selective in floral decoration as all segments of the house need different concentrations and varieties!
- Avoid decoration too early
This would cause the wilting of the flowers!
- Leaving the flowers unattended in open before decoration
Ensure the beauty and freshness of the flowers so procured through proper handling.
- Booking the florist too late
Book early so that the flowers could be procured in time!
