One of the most beautiful and symbolic traditions of the wedding is that of floral ornaments. A nice bouquet of choice for the bride usually the replica of that used his mom, but updated; Among the most popular flowers are the coves, Casablanca lilies, gardenias, hidrangeas, lilacs, lilies of the valley, orchids, estefanotis, tulips and, of course, roses.
In an interview with the florist, take (if possible) photos of the wedding dress, the church and floral arrangements they like. Clarifications from the outset what their budget, their favorite colors, what arrangements need (church, reception hall, etc.). And how many people (ladies, etc.). Ask if the price includes taxes and sending flowers, and remember that a good florist always conforms to the budget of his client, supplying their creativity with the possible lack of resources.
Overall, the budget for flowers should be 15% of the total wedding. A normal wedding usually cost, in the garden "Trias Flowers" for example, about $ 200 US, although everything depends on the number of centre´s and the type of table decoration. The centers table classics are made according July Trias, one of the owners of Casablanca Lilies, Alstromeria, Stock, roses (whether or Arreana Vendela), Buvardia and Dendrobium orchid, combined with silver candlesticks candles ivory color.
The price ranges between $ 8 and $ 15 each, but there are cheaper, from $ 3.50. They are basically like the earlier but less developed and less flowers.
Manny Alonso, owner Anne Nouvelle Florists, works with any budget that the customers always follow its recommendations.
We must be realistic: not everything you see in magazines is real or affordable. Even I have not found any partner who does not have a limited budget for its flowers, he says, less is more elegant.
My recommendation is always the same: less is more elegant, and repeats the same flower when there is a budget that makes it look more strong decoration. Understand elegance, that's my motto says the florist, whose flowers are the favorite coves.
The most elaborate wedding that Manny has done has been to his daughter Ana Cristina: decorated the church with more than 5000 white roses Carte Blanche that open as gardenias, over 1000 stems of lilies from Casablanca who was caring for one week before they were open that day; delphinium and white apple blossoms flowered brought from Washington the previous day.
The wedding with more Hollywood style for him was one he made in the Indian Creek Club and in which used osianas with roses, candles and wreaths with asparagus Azahar, banners with the initials of the bride and groom in flowers and a flash of fireworks in the bay when the bride gave the yes.
Certainly, the guests instead arrive in limousines arrived by helicopter because the families were residing in New York, tells us. Another favorite of his wedding, perhaps more than you have done, was to some European who insisted that everything was absolutely tropical:
I used thousands of exotic flowers: Proto, birds of paradise, ginger, haleconias, maracas, orchids and various other to achieve the effect, and as a final touch, I had to rent parrots so obviously more authentic'', recalls.
The most original of all their wedding was one that used lilies, roses and orchids in shades of white and natural, well-trimmed classics, silver candlesticks, etc.. What was the original of this very classical wedding? Says Manny with broad smile, Well, that the family dog, with tulle neck and scintilla´s of flowers, paraded in front of the bride wearing the rings...
Anyway, there for everyone, Remember, boyfriends, always bet on his own conviction to have the best of the weddings and of course, the better wedding flowers to you.
Are you curious about what are the most expensive flowers to have in a wedding? This article will list the priciest flowers used to create bridal bouquets and will give information about each of these lovely blooms. Of course if you are getting married in a tropical location, this list will not apply to you. This list is relevant for North American weddings because that is what I'm familiar with, being a wedding florist in Ontario Canada.
The gardenia is a delicate flower that is very susceptible to getting bruised and damaged in transit...therefore, it is very expensive. They smell amazing and are the classic ideal in traditional wedding blooms. Are they worth the trouble and the price? That is a personal choice. Do they have a symbolic meaning for you or are you in love with their look and scent? If so, I say go for it. If you just think they are kind of pretty and it could easily be substituted with a rose or lisianthus, then never mind the extra cost for the gardenias.
In flower symbolism, the stephanotis means marital happiness. Stephanotis are tiny flowers that smell delicious as well. They grow on a vine and so they don't have individual stems. Because of this, each flower needs to be wired in a special stephanotis stems. You want to use this flower amidst other blooms for a modern look. In the olden days they used to make entire bouquets of stephanotis. This is an artsy, statement bouquet but really not suitable for the average bride. Stephanotis are perfect amidst roses or hydrangeas. Adding jewels or other type of bling to your bouquet would complement the stephanotis well.
Cymbidium, Dendrobium, Vanda, Phalaenopsis and Cattleya Orchids, etc.. There is a wide variety of orchids to suit every bride's taste. These exotic blooms come in many colors and are long lasting so that they look good throughout the whole wedding day and night. Orchids symbolize love, luxury, beauty and strength, therefore they are perfect in wedding bouquets, corsages and centerpieces if you can afford them.
4) Calla lilies
You are either a calla lover or not. Those that love this flower, love it a lot, enough to base their wedding theme around it. This trumpet like flower is elegant, classic and majestic. It is said to symbolize purity and marriage. Wedding bouquets composed with this flower showcase it exclusively. For example, 6 large callas with foliage and a bow makes a simple yet classy statement. You can also feature small callas in the guys boutonnieres and even on your wedding cake.
5) Casablanca Lilies
Casablanca lilies are in the oriental lily family along with stargazer lilies. They are expensive but also gorgeous for those that are attracted to them. The look is simple and elegant and they make an elegant statement, however they do smell very strongly. Make sure the smell won't give you a headache since many people are sensitive to its strong odor.
Other expensive flowers worth noting are hydrangea although you get a lot of bang for your buck if using hydrangeas in centerpieces since they are huge. In a wedding bouquets, hydrangeas are pricey because they are time consuming to work with. They need to be wired individually in bunches since the full bloom is way too big to use as is in a bouquet.
The pincushion protea is expensive since it is a tropical beauty from South Africa. Ginger, heliconium and birds of paradise are also pricey but not really suitable for wedding bouquets. In tall bouquets to decorate the church or the hall, tall birds of paradise and ginger flowers would be phenomenal, however expensive they will be!
Lisianthus is another traditional wedding flowers that can be quite pricey unless you buy them in their peak summer growing season. Certain flowers are less expensive in their peak growing season but very pricey when out of season. For example, lily of the valley and peonies have a very brief period of being in season in the spring. After that short period of time, if you insist on wanting these blooms, it's going to cost you.
To reduce the cost of expensive wedding flowers, make your own bouquets, corsages and centerpieces. For more valuable tips on which flowers to choose and how to make your own wedding flowers, check out my book: Unleash Your Inner Florist: How to Make Your Own Wedding and Special Event Flowers.
