The choice of flowers can make a big difference to a wedding.
Is the vibe classy and elegant, bohemian and wild, or soft and romantic? The flowers can help to tell that story.
They can also feature really prominently in the big day. The bride will have her bouquet, bridesmaids will also have flowers, they may adorn the tables for dinner, and the groomsmen may even have them in their buttonholes.
So, you want to make sure you choose the right blooms to fit the feel of your special day.
But with the entire natural world at your disposal, how do you choose the flowers you want? Well, you might take inspiration from other people’s favourites.
