How to Choose Floral Wedding Arrangements

Are you looking for floral wedding arrangements, but you’re not sure exactly what you want? We all love to look at a beautiful arrangement, but sometimes we don’t know what’s the best flower for our event or what looks nice together. There are a few things to consider when choosing floral wedding arrangements, and these include color, flower meaning and type, and scent.

You may have theme colors for your wedding, or you may just like a certain color for the event and want the floral arrangements to match. Whatever the reason, color is most likely on your mind with floral arrangements.

The first thing to consider with color is whether the color complements the room and the event. If you’re looking for a sophisticated aura, you may want to go for lighter or more subtle flower colors (like pink roses or lavender) instead of bright and bold colors (like in sunflowers). If you’re looking to have a more whimsical vibe, you may choose to do the opposite! The colors that you choose will depend on your own style and how you want to incorporate that into your event.

Flower Meaning and Type

Another point to consider when choosing flowers is their meaning and type. The type of flower can be important because of the shape or how it fits in with other flowers in the arrangement. Wittendale’s Florist and Greenhouses, Inc. can advise you on which flowers will do well together and which may be better be left alone.

The flower meaning can convey feelings. In Victorian times, the flower you gave to someone meant something specific. For example, a red rose is a sign of passionate love, but lilies are commonly associated with funerals and may not be a first choice for a wedding. It’s important to consider the meaning of flowers to express yourself for your wedding through beautiful floral arrangements and bouquets.

Exquisite Shades


If you don’t like the scent of the floral wedding arrangements, you’re not going to enjoy the wedding or the reception where they are in abundance. Before choosing a floral arrangement with a new flower you’ve never smelled, take a visit to the greenhouse and make sure you like the scent. It will be a very long day if you’ve got a headache from the hyacinth by 2 pm.
