By Catherine Perry

There are some days that you will remember more than others. These may be specific birthdays, weddings, or even anniversaries. In order to make these days memorable, there needs to be efficient planning beforehand. Your wedding floral arrangements, are part of what makes the day memorable, because they add color and cheer to the venue.

Before you go to the florist, make sure you have already decided the specific color scheme you will use. This will mean that you will have chosen the color for the bridesmaid dresses, as well as the clothes you and your partner will wear. It also helps if you have an idea, even though faint, of which flowers you want.

To get the best results, you need to choose the best professional to do the job. It is advisable to get a recommendation from someone who has used these services before. Ensure you have about three options listed, so that you can compare their services. You should also get someone who you get along with.

The bouquet you chose should be able to reflect who you are. This means that you do not need to get a large bouquet, if you do not want one. The best way to settle on the right arrangement, is by telling the florist about yourself and your spouse. This way they can help you choose the right blooms, arranged in the right way.

Different flowers are available during different seasons, although a few of them like roses and hydrangeas, can be found almost all year round. In this regard, therefore, before you choose the bunch of flowers, you want you need to consider the season where the wedding will fall. After identifying this, your florist will be able to tell you what will be available and you can make your choice.

The price for the floral arrangements should be included in the budget itself, although it should not take up too much money. If you do not include it, you will end up viewing it as an added expense and may end up with arrangements, which do not really make you happy. When talking to your florist, you can get quotations for different arrangements before you settle on one.

It would be wise to ask the florist if they provide other decorations, like the table linens and candles. If they do, you might find that getting all these services from one person, will earn you a discount. You are also assured that the colors will blend, because they already know the details of the colour scheme.

After you pick out the specific bouquets, you will need to choose a centerpiece. This can be bunch of flowers, or can even be something unrelated. It should be made to fit in with the theme of the day. For example for an ocean front wedding, you may opt to use nautical rope, or miniature boats as your center pieces. To give the bouquet a special touch, you can customize it by adding something personal. This may be a present like a brooch.
