It is so lovely to be getting married this time of year bringing all the family together choosing a lovely cosy venue etc.
But when choosing your wedding flowers there is certain factors to consider: Is the florist available on your chosen day? Can the florist get the flowers from their supplier? Are there certain varieties of flowers available etc... will they be expensive?
First if all check with your florist if they are available on your chosen date some florists can be closed during the week after Christmas to New year as Flowers are not available from the markets etc.
Then you need to check if they are able to get the flowers on time for your wedding from their supplier. Some markets will only have chosen dates of delivery etc, you need to make sure that your flowers will be fresh for your wedding.
There is many varieties of flowers available Orchids, Roses, Lizyanthus, Gerbera's Callas, Spring flowers such as Tulips and anemones are also available. Just remember Red flowers such as Roses can be a bit more expensive purely down to demand and that is for any flower that is Red.
Unfortunately yes the flowers will be a bit more than average especially anything that is RED. But there is other colours and varieties of flowers that will give as much impact that may be slightly cheaper. Like whites roses and green foliages, gypsophila filled jam jars etc. The key is to be simple and effective with your displays.
Also my final bit of advice is to make sure you have a good relationship with your florist. It's a very stressful time of year especially with the weather against you. Just ringing and checking things are ok just to keep your mind at rest and if there is any change of plans for delivery etc please let your florist know.
