Every bride wants her wedding to be memorable.
The flowers provide the finishing touch to this very special day.

The flowers for a wedding should have a look of individuality. They should look as if they have all been specially created for the bride.
What will suit one bride will not automatically suit another. The style of dress, the height of the girl, the overall theme of the wedding should all have a bearing on the choice of the flowers.
There are various styles of bouquets. These include round, trailer, sheaf, crescent, line and cascade bouquets.
Round bouquets made of roses are a popular choice for many brides.
Large trailing bouquets particularly suit romantic style wedding gowns.
An elegant line bouquet of lilies would be a good choice for a slim fitting gown.
A modern style bouquet made of exotic flowers and tropical foliage will suit the contemporary bride.
The brides flowers should be the largest most spectacular bouquet in the wedding party – after all it is her special day!
White is still traditionally the most popular colour for the brides bouquet but many different colours are used in weddings today for the bride and bridesmaids from soft pastels such as pale pink through to rich vibrant colours such as hot pink, burgundy and violet.
Pearls and crystals can be incorporated into bouquets for a touch of added glamour.
For a delicate touch sheer organza ribbon can be used to create ribbon bows and long streamers.
Wide satin ribbon will give a rich luxurious look.
The bridesmaids flowers can be a smaller version of the brides flowers or a different shape.
If the bride is carrying a trailer bouquet the bridesmaids could carry round bouquets.
The bouquets can be the same colour as the brides bouquet or a different colour.
For something different the bridesmaids could carry elegant evening bags filled with flowers. The bag would need to be lined with a piece of plastic to prevent staining the inside of the bag. A piece of soaked florist foam can be placed in the bag and the flowers and foliage arranged in the foam to extend gracefully from the top of the bag.
A flower girl could carry a small basket of flowers to match the bridesmaids flowers. the basket can be sprayed white or a pastel shade. Another alternative is to attach a spray of flowers to a piece of ribbon and tie it around the flower girls wrist, tying the ribbon ends in a bow with long ends. This is particularly suitable for a very young flower girl who may find a basket awkward to carry.
The bridegroom and groomsmen wear a buttonhole which often consists of a single flower such as a rose or a carnation or another flower the same type as used in the brides bouquet.
The mothers of the bride and groom wear corsages. Often grandmothers and special aunts also wear corsages. It is helpful to know the colour of their dresses so colours will not clash. White or cream is always a safe choice.
