It is common knowledge that flowers are an essential part of every wedding. There are however several things to take into consideration before making your final decision. At Florists Shrewsbury, we provide with free consultation to make sure you are fully satisfied with your final choice.

Your wedding’s season

Before deciding on what flower types you want to include in your set, make sure the flowers of your choice would be in season. While you may want Calla Lilies in your bridal bouquet for your winter wedding, it is best to choose a more seasonal flower such as tulips or roses.

Your wedding location

The theme of your wedding is crucial in helping us provide with the best suggestion. An elegant and traditional church wedding cannot follow the same decorative pattern as a beach wedding for example. Decide on your theme and on the mood you want to convey and we will provide you with the corresponding flower arrangements suggestions.

Your colour scheme

This may seem like the most basic thing to discuss but flowers have to match the entire colour scheme of the wedding. We want the flowers to blend in the overall setting and not seem out of place. Be it the colour of the bride and bridesmaids’ dresses, the table and chair settings or even the groom’s boutonniere, everything has to match!

Your budget

While it may be tempting to go over budget when you see something you like, it is important to keep in mind that any budget, no matter how little, can be used to create something beautiful. We will advise you and help you get what you want with what you have. Remember, a smaller budget doesn’t necessarily mean cheap!

Don’t hesitate to ask or share!

It is your wedding and you should be happy. Don’t hesitate to let us know what you have in mind and what it is you really want. The more the bride provides with details about her view, desires and expectations for the wedding, the easier it will be for the end result to match them. Also don’t forget to share what may seem like minor details as these may have an effect on the success of your reception. For example, it is important to know whether the wedding is outdoor as the sun may affect the choice of flowers used in the arrangements.
