Something that will be a big part of your day will be the wedding flowers. There will be wedding flowers in the church, the bouquets that the bride and her bridesmaids are holding, wedding flowers in the corsages for the mothers and grandmothers, and flowers for the men to wear as their boutonniere, as well as flowers in the church and in the reception hall.
A common mistake that people make when choosing their wedding flowers is that they choose flowers that are overly fragrant. Roses may look pretty, but if you have someone that is overly sensitive to overwhelming scents, you could find yourself listening to someone sneeze all through your ceremony. If you are someone that is prone to allergies, or you know that someone in your wedding party is, you might want to research other flowers online or discuss that with your florist to see what they recommend.
For the bridal bouquet, a lot of brides go with just white, but depending on what your dress looks like it might blend right in and your guests will have a hard time being able to see it. What some brides do is they add some flowers the color of the bridesmaids dresses to their bouquet and that helps the bouquet to be more visible.
Of course, with the bridesmaids and the ushers, the colors of their wedding flowers will match the dresses of the bridesmaid and the cummerbunds of the ushers. For the groom, his boutonniere is normally white to match the bride's bouquet.
For the mothers and the grandmothers, there are different ways that it can be done. If the colors of their dresses are known, the color of the flowers in their corsages can match their dresses. If you want to add a personal touch to their corsage, you can find out what kind of flowers they had in their own wedding bouquet and put those flowers in their corsage.
When you are choosing the wedding flowers for the church and for the reception hall, remember to be aware of any possible affects that the wedding flowers will have on your guests. There will be perfumes and cologne and scents of all kinds, so you might not want to make the flowers you choose to be really fragrant ones. You want your guests to have a good time and not have to worry about sneezing all the time.
