Flower Meanings
Ordering Advice:

Our best advice to remember is to keep the order as general and open as possible.  Because flowers are usually better in some seasons and not others, it is wise to allow the florist to pick the types of flowers used so they can give you the best quality.  Some flowers, such as roses, carnations and chrysanthemums, are available all year.

In addition, not all colors are available for all types of flowers.  While you can specify the overall color or colors of the arrangement (e.g., spring colors, fall colors, pastels, etc.), it again is wise to allow the florist to pick the individual colors and flowers so they can give you the best quality.


Wedding Floral 

Floral designers are very creative individuals.  Rather than specifying the precise location of every flower in the arrangement, tell them the overall "look" you want (e.g., round arrangement, loose flowers in a vase, etc.) and let them use their creativity to do something spectacular for you!

Tips from The Knot.com

Flower Mistake 1: Not seeing the big picture

"Couples tend to see the centerpieces and the table setting but do not visualize the whole reception room with their guests in it. For example, couples pay for a room with a wonderful view of the ocean or scenic surrounding and want tall, large centerpieces that will obstruct this view."



Flower Mistake 2: Not reusing ceremony arrangements

"Aisle flowers can become centerpieces and altar pieces can be moved to the buffet table. The ceremony usually only lasts about half an hour -- it's a shame to see so many flowers only being used for that amount of time when they could easily be incorporated into the reception décor!"
