As you plan your dream wedding, one of the most enchanting aspects to consider is the floral design. Flowers have an extraordinary ability to evoke emotion, set the mood, and elevate the beauty of your special day. In this guide, we’ll delve into the enchanting world of wedding florals, exploring everything from choosing the perfect blooms to incorporating them into every aspect of your celebration.

Choosing the Right Blooms:

Selecting the perfect flowers for your wedding is a deeply personal decision that should reflect your style, personality, and the overall theme of your celebration. Begin by considering the season of your wedding and the colors you envision. Are you drawn to the soft romance of pastels, the vibrant energy of bold hues, or the timeless elegance of whites and greens?

Incorporating Florals Throughout Your Day:

Once you’ve chosen your blooms, the fun part begins: incorporating them into every aspect of your wedding day! From the ceremony to the reception, there are countless ways to infuse florals into your celebration.

Start by creating a stunning backdrop for your ceremony. Whether you exchange vows beneath a romantic arch adorned with cascading blooms (pictured above) or say “I do” in front of a simple floral-lined aisle, flowers will add an extra layer of beauty and romance to this unforgettable moment.

Continue the floral magic into your reception space. Elevate your tables with elegant centerpieces featuring your favorite blooms, or opt for whimsical bud vases for a more relaxed vibe. Don’t forget about the little details, like floral accents on your place settings, floral garlands draped across your sweetheart table, or even floral-adorned chandeliers hanging above the dance floor.

Color Palette:

Summer weddings are a canvas painted with vibrant hues. Opt for a color palette that reflects the season’s cheerful spirit. Bright yellows, oranges, pinks, and blues evoke the warmth and joy of summer. Consider incorporating pops of contrasting colors to add depth and visual interest to your floral arrangements.

“I fell in love with a colorful bouquet from Rocky Mountain Bride and decided I wanted to try my hand at wedding florals and that really catapulted me into a passion for designing for special events and weddings. I am self-taught on designing and learned floral mechanics, techniques, floral knowledge, etc. through tutorials and watching other designers around me and developed my own, unique style that is somewhere between classically structured and whispy, wildness. I learned a lot about designing during my time in Boulder at a cute little flower shop I worked at. I really enjoy learning about a client or couple and what things are special to them so I can work on incorporating those special things into their event or wedding. I love to create unique designs and make something special for my clients and couples. Color planning/swatching is one of my favorite things to get my creative juices going. I love to take a few colors and run with it and see what I come up with.”
