Emma Lynch, owner and manager of Love Lily in Cross Street, Abergavenny, provides insightful and professional guidance on how to make the perfect choice when it comes to wedding flowers.

Will it be a vintage wedding, or a country cottage garden theme? Maybe city chic is your thing or, for something completely different, are you going for a tropical twist? How do you even begin to choose the style of wedding you want when there’s so much choice available? That’s the hard part but once you have purchased that perfect dress of your dreams and the Bridesmaids’ colours are all confirmed, you’re almost there.

Flowers play a huge role in weddings; some even say that the flowers alone make the perfect wedding. So how do you ensure your wedding day stands out from the rest? It’s all about finding the right florist for you. It’s crucial to meet with prospective florists to discuss your wedding in detail – and don’t worry if you’re not confident in naming your calla lilies from your dahlias, that’s the florist’s job! No wedding can be designed without a good understanding of the style and theme of your big day. The right florist will be able to identify this with you easily and create the perfect arrangements to wow your guests.
There’s a lot to think about, the average wedding will require a bridal bouquet, bridesmaids’ bouquets, buttonholes, church dressing and table centres but thanks to the influence of the American wedding market what makes an ‘average’ wedding now!
The ideas and inspiration out there is amazing and it’s certainly a fun and creative time to be planning your wedding day. Costs for wedding flowers can vary greatly depending on what you are looking for but, as always, working with seasonal flowers will help to keep the costs reasonable. So make a start on that scrapbook now and tear out images of flowers that you may see in magazines because as that big day comes closer you don’t want to be tearing out your hair thanks to the many choices available.
