Fresh Floral Bridal Bouquets

Choosing Wedding Flowers


Nothing smells as nice as fresh floral bridal bouquets with the lovely fragrant perfume of the blooms within. There are many ways that you can get your fresh wedding flowers.

Wedding Flower Florist

The most traditional way to order fresh flowers is to order from a wedding flower florist, even if you are doing your own flowers.

They have access to wholesalers and will be able to advise you if the flowers that you want will be available.

You can find more about ordering your flowers from a wedding flower florist here.

Local Flower Growers

You can also buy direct from local flower growers. Although you will be limited to local flowers, these will be in season and fresh from the flower field. This will be cheaper than any flower that has to be shipped in from other areas.

Online Wedding Flowers

Buying your wedding flowers online is a great alternative if you can't find any local flower growers in your area. There are some great online companies that give you a wide flower choice. 

These choices do include different flower varieties, pre made bridal bouquets or if you want to make your own wedding flowers you can just purchase flower stems in bulk.

The flowers are all carefully packed and delivered to your door one or two days before your wedding.

Grow Your Own Flowers

If you have enough time and garden space you can try to grow at least some of your wedding flowers. You will have to do some planning in advance so that you can work out the best time to plant your seeds, bulbs or seedlings so that they flower at the time you want them to.

When choosing wedding flowers that you have grown you need to select the ones that are at the right stage of bloom.

When choosing the flowers, select buds that are just beginning to open. You should see a little color coming from under the leaf sheaf.

If you pick the flower when the bud is too tight, it may never open. If you pick them when they are in full bloom they will lose their petals very quickly.

If you can try to pick your flowers on day before the wedding, always keeping the stems in water to keep the fresh looking.
