Deciding on the flowers for your wedding can be a daunting task to check off your wedding to-do lists, especially if you have no idea what flowers you want! All those long flower names and varieties can be confusing to understand. It’s important to choose a florist who is able to ‘see’ your vision for your wedding and make fabulous recommendations for you. If you’re into vintage style rustic designs, have a look at Ditsy Floral Design based in Loughbrickland, near Banbridge is owned by Elaine and she specialises in ‘just picked’ wedding flowers.

We recommend spending a lot of time getting inspiration for your wedding flowers. There are so many places you can get ideas from when it comes to your floral arrangements and bouquets. Pinterest is a great place to start if you have an idea about your wedding’s colour scheme or theme.

Instagram and other social media sites are also a great place to search, as well as wedding blogs. Maybe you even want to take inspiration from some of the royal weddings.
Your wedding theme and colour scheme will have a big impact on which flowers you’ll choose for your wedding. The flowers you pick will have to fit into your theme, to pull together the overall aesthetic for your big day. Try to choose flowers whose colours compliment your wedding colour scheme, as well as suit your venue and dress. You can play with different tones and shades to create floral arrangements that truly compliment your big day.
The meanings of flowers can also play a big part in your floral choices and may give you some wedding flowers ideas. Search online or ask your florist for the meanings behind certain blooms. Here are some flower meanings to get you started. You might want flowers with happy, romantic meanings.
Rose and lilacs represent love and romance, making them perfect choices for your wedding day.
Or, you might choose flowers that have a special significance to just you and your partner – perhaps the first flowers he ever bought you?
Finally, the seasons will have a big impact on the flowers you can choose from. Some flowers are only in season at certain times of the year. Your florist will know which flowers are available to use, and will be blooming at the date of your wedding. If your favourites aren’t available, consider similar alternatives, to keep prices down. If you’re having a winter wedding, read our blog article on beautiful winter flowers to use.
