If you’re planning a beach location we’ll give you some tips when choosing the decoration flowers and arrangements, since they play a vital role in contributing to the color scheme and decoration theme, and could be the one thing that ties everything together. Keep them in mind to avoid spending long hours at flower shops and have fun choosing your beach wedding flowers.
1. Don’t over use seashells and starfish.
Beach wedding arrangements doesn’t need to be covered with seashells and starfish from top to bottom. It’s your day, so you can choose those pretty flowers you like and combine them together to create a fantastic beach bouquet or decoration.
2. Consider staying power.
Make sure that the type of flower you choose will stay fresh throughout the ceremony and reception. Beach weddings can be a challenge due to its moisture and windy climate, specially if you’re getting married early in the day when the sun is beaming.
Some species like orchids, chrysanthemums and plumeria are gorgeous and surprisingly strong, so will hold up well in this kind of weather. And sometimes it’s best to pick a flower that is available the whole year, such as hydrangeas, roses, carnations or calla lilies.
3. Ask your provider for all the options you can choose from.
Are your flowers included in your wedding package? If so, here’s a little secret: Hotels and organizers will present you with only a few different types of floral arrangements, so if none of them convinces you just ask if there are other options you can choose from.
Make this easier by telling them your likes and dislikes and if they don’t have what you want, ask if you can bring in an outside florist.
Follow this tips and make sure your flower picking experience go as planned. So let’s make your big day a magical moment, and remember: when looking for some inspiration, trust your own taste too and always listen to your heart.
