Flowers for your wedding should fit the style and formality of the occasion. The florist you choose will be able to help you decide on the best floral arrangements that will complement your ceremony. Before making any decisions, check with the ceremony site to make sure there are no restrictions on the type of flowers, or arrangements, that can be used. Take into consideration the size and lighting of your ceremony site, your wedding color scheme, and the season. The main purpose of flowers at a ceremony is to direct attention to the front and the bridal couple. Because of this, the size and style of your flowers are also important. For example, larger arrangements with bold flowers can be used effectively in a church that has high ceilings. If your budget allows, flowers can also be draped on the pews down the aisle. This adds color and fragrance to the ceremony. If you are on a tight budget, consider using plants. Plants such as ferns or ficuses (fike-uh-ses) can also add a lot of color and beauty to the ceremony. For more information, contact a wedding specialist.
