Wedding Flowers Edinburgh
When deciding on your wedding flowers the first thing you need to consider is do you
want silk flowers or do you want fresh flowers? There are advantages to each.
Fresh flowers are the most popular choice and you'll find that you have a huge
selection of florists and types of flowers to choose from.
The only restriction is that usually you will need to pick what you want in your
bouquets based on what is in season at the time of your wedding.
The advantage to choosing silk wedding flowers is that you will be able to keep them
forever as a reminder of your special day. They also tend to be less expensive than
fresh flowers. Another advantage is that silk is never out of season, so
you can have any flower you like any time of year. You can even order the silk
wedding flowers scented so they’ll smell just like real flowers.
Whatever you decide, silk or fresh, know that when you walk down that aisle
on your wedding day the flowers will be admired at by everyone, but only after
they have admired how beautiful you look!
There are many florists in Edinburgh and it makes sense to visit two
or three florists to see how they compare on both choice and price.
Most florists will be able to show you photos of their work to help you choose
the colour and type of flowers that are right for you.
Before you visit the Florist try to think of what type of flowers and colours you
would like and what your budget is. The average spend on flowers for a UK wedding is
around £400-500. You will need to think about bouquets for yourself and your bridesmaids,
flowers for the church or civil ceremony venue, flowers for the tables at the reception
and buttonholes and corsages for the groom, best man, ushers and mothers & fathers of
the bride and groom.
If like me you aren't very knowledgeable about different types of flowers you may find
it useful to get a book or a magazine before hand and browse through it, taking note
of the names and colours of the flowers that you like. If you are on a tight budget ask
your florist what is in season at the time of year you are getting married, as in season
flowers tend to be cheaper.
