Choosing Your Wedding Flowers

Choosing the flowers for your wedding is a vital step in the process, one that you cannot avoid. That being said, it is crucial for the couple to be open to using different types of flowers for their wedding. This is because some flowers are seasonal and your first choice may not be available for your wedding date.

Luckily, there flowers available year-round. For instance, there are roses, carnations, hydrangeas, orchids, callas and so much more. Remember, the last thing you would want is to limit your options. That being said, it would also be useful for you to take flower seasons into consideration before setting an actual date for your big event.

Of course, the type of flower is one thing but there is also color that must be taken into account. Remember, like most things in nature, the colors of flowers are never really exact. However, you will want to pick the ones that best fit with your overall motif. That is why you should work closely with your florist so that they can help you better understand the specific undertones and the different flower varieties.

These are just two of the things you need to take into account when choosing wedding flowers.


“Sex and the City” fans will recall that infamous scene in the first feature film when Charlotte questions Carrie about the item in her hair. “It was a bird!” Carries cries, “I put a bird in my hair for him!” While you may not want to go as far as fashion forward Carrie went to look fabulous on her wedding day, feathers are definitely an accessory you can have fun with and make a fashionable statement.

Feathers are often worn in brides’ hair. Whether they are small and single, or used as an accent piece underneath a flower hair clip, they add texture, glamour and a modern appeal to a wedding day look. Feathers look great in textured and tousled hair — like corkscrew curls or loose waves, since the hair is already voluminous and in glamor girl mode. They also appear frequently attached to head bands. These feathery accessories are carried by designers that can be found at New York Bride & Groom.

Some brag-worthy hair accessories can be found in Bel Aire Bridal’s line. Style number 1951 is made up of roses, feathers and rose sprays that sit on a comb to be easily placed on your sculpted up-do. Another great feather accessory in the line is comb number 1956. It’s comprised of organza flower petals with feathers intermittently placed among them.

Feathers are also spotted on dresses. Some are adorned around the bride’s bust line, or gracefully fall off the shoulder line. It is also trendy to wear them lining the bottom portion of your dress to create fullness, drama and consistency.  Designer Maggie Soterro’s Kristen dress has a pretty feather and flower embellishment that sits strategically above the hip of the gown.

Think about letting the feathers fly on your wedding day — they are fun, flirty and fantastically fabulous!
