Spring is the beginning of wedding season and is one of the most popular times of the year to get married as it is full of weddings and wedding related affairs.  If you are planning an unique wedding program for 20 or a a 100. FlowerToy wants to ensure you have the best experience possible. The top wedding florists from around the country have been asked what are most common mistakes brides make and this is what they have to say.

Communication With Your Florist Is Key

— Danielle Childress, McKannix Floral Studio

“Knowing what you like is just as important as knowing what you don’t like. Bring lots of pictures — it is the best way to help convey what you do and do not want your floral designs to look like.”

Don't Choose Flowers With Strong Scents

— Katie Martin, Elegance & Simplicity

“Choosing highly aromatic flowers for centerpieces may sound like an amazingly romantic idea, but it will drive your guests insane if they are prone to allergies. For highly aromatic arrangements — stick to your bridal bouquet and the altar arrangements.”

Know When You Should Order Your Flowers

— Brenda Sterk, J’s Fresh Flower Market

“Flowers come from South America, Holland, and all over the world, so it is very hard to contact farms across the world and have flowers arrive within one or two weeks. Leave at least a six-week window ahead of your wedding week to be able to line everything up. Your flowers will be cheaper if you can give us the time that we need to order.”

Don't Pick Oversized Bouquet

— Danielle Childress, McKannix Floral Studio

“Brides often think: ‘The larger the better!’ What they don’t realize is that the larger the bouquet, the more it covers and fights with the overall design of their dress. Further, do you really want to carry something that is huge and heavy? Think about the size and comfort when it comes to your bouquet.”

Pick A Nice Table Linens

— Katie Martin, Elegance & Simplicity

“What’s underneath a centerpiece is as important as the arrangement itself. Linens don’t just complement the look of your centerpieces; they complete them. From runners to underlays and overlays, the right ‘undergarments’ can make flowers flourish on a table.”

Visualize The Whole Room

— Faith Cass, Cass the Florist, Inc.

“Communicate your vision, likes, dislikes, and expectations but have a little flexibility and be comfortable with substitution. We want to make your wedding absolutely breathtaking. So relax, put trust in your vendors and remember why you hired that amazing talent!”

Trust Your Florist

— Alana Guglielmo, Mixed Greens Event Design

“Communicate your vision, likes, dislikes, and expectations but have a little flexibility and be comfortable with substitution. We want to make your wedding absolutely breathtaking. So relax, put trust in your vendors and remember why you hired that amazing talent!”

Reuse Floral Arrangements

— Paula Pritchard, Paisley Petals

“Aisle flowers can become centerpieces and altar pieces can be moved to the buffet table. The ceremony usually only lasts about half an hour — it’s a shame to see so many flowers only being used for that amount of time when they could easily be incorporated into the reception decor!”
