Top Tips for your Wedding Flowers
- Book in advance - if you know you want flowers then why wait.
- Use seasonal flowers which will be a better price rather than wanting out of season blooms (one of the top no no's as far as I am concerned when choosing your flowers)
- If you love expensive flowers use them in your Bouquet and ask your florist about a more economical substitute for your table flowers. So a coral Garden Rose is all very well but could add on 30% or more to your table flowers......why not substitute with a beautiful coral dahlia instead and save the Garden Roses for your Bouquets and Buttonholes
- Don't underestimate foliage...it is beautiful, bountiful and will bring the cost of your flowers down considerably. Remember though you are not just paying for flowers. You are paying for a florists skill and for their time...we need to to earn a living too!
- With the uncertainty of Brexit and the fluctuation of the pound imported flowers prices have gone through the roof...why not source a local supplier who grows or uses local flowers. You can find more information on Flowers from The Farm which is a national network of growers and florist who grow and use British Blooms (you will find Emma Sousa flowers on there in the South East region/London)
- If you love those big wild arrangements for your tables why not consider mixing tall and low arrangements to bring the costs down a little. A low table arrangement can cost considerably less than a metre high floral arrangement so mixing it up a little can make all the difference.
