5 Mistakes to Avoid When Choosing Wedding Flowers


When planning for your wedding, you may be tempted to research the numerous do’s and don’ts regarding your special day, which can be overwhelming. When it comes to wedding flowers, the number of choices you have to make can push you to the wall and force you to make the wrong decisions. In the end, it can become a costly mistake. Sometimes, brides can have expectations that differ from reality, which can spell disaster on the wedding day. The best way to prevent this is to avoid the following mistakes:

  • Cluttered Inspiration Boards

One of the first pieces of advice you will receive as a bride-to-be is to have an inspiration board. This will allow you to have a clear vision of what you want to achieve during your wedding day. However, you have to make sure that it is well-organized. Most brides will tend to go to Pinterest and save almost anything that catches their eye. In the end, they will realize that their board has no distinct palette and style. It can be confusing for the bride and the florist to make sense of your vision. 

  • Staying Closed-Minded On Details

While most floral designers love working with brides who know what they want, it can be challenging to work with someone fixated on precise details, such as achieving the perfect shade of pink or roses’ exact bloom. While any florist will want to give the bride the best service possible, nature is open to variety, and these details may not be available at any given time. As a cooperative bride, it is always best to have an opinion while remaining flexible to details. 

  • Perfect Expectation

Nowadays, a bride’s go-to resource is the internet. There are numerous photographs you will see that you can use as your inspiration. However, most of them have been edited. In some cases, photographers apply filters that make the hues appear a lot more different from real life. Before you start choosing the perfect flowers for a reception, it would be wise to tour a flower shop or talk to an experienced florist. This way, you know what you can expect when it comes to your wedding flowers. 

  • Poor Timing In Consultation

Ideally, brides should not wait until the last minute for their wedding flowers. However, starting too early can also have its own consequences. There are far more important things that you need to settle and finalize first before you even decide on your wedding flowers. Firstly, you should have an actual wedding date, venue, reception, and guest count. Plus, finalizing the wedding flowers too early can become problematic if the bride gets new ideas or changes the overall color palette. Most florists advise brides to consult when they already have a specific venue in mind. This way, it’s easier for everyone involved to come up with a design aesthetic. 

  • Too Many Flowers

Some brides think that having tons of flowers for their wedding means that they end up putting flowers on every nook and cranny and table in their reception. However, guests can quickly fill up space during the reception and party, and most of these florals will be overshadowed. The best way to avoid this is to focus on one area in the reception for photo-worthy areas that will make your wedding day memorable. 

Avoid these mistakes, and you will be on your way to celebrating the perfect wedding with your loved one.

Dried-flower arrangements send a sweet message all year. We scoured the market for new florists that were reinventing the tried-and-true, since their rustic design and stunning texture make them an especially lovely fall accent. These florals are just as stunning as their new counterparts and need no special treatment. Simply put them in a favorite vessel and enjoy for months, if not years. And no matter what your design or color choices are, you’ll be able to find a bouquet (or two) to suit them. Are you a fan of the dried flower shop Ireland arrangement in its entirety? That’s great, too—we’ve added some of our favourite individual stems and branches for you to mix and match. Any of the best blooms to have on display this time of year are mentioned below.
