Your Bridal Bouquet

The bouquet you carry as you walk down the aisle makes a powerful statement about what kind of bride you are. It's the most prominent accessory you'll have on your wedding day, and it will live on in your wedding photos. From romantic, cascading bouquets to simple hand-tied arrangements, the goal of the bride's bouquet is to emphasize your natural beauty. Just like trying on wedding dresses, meeting with a florist to discuss your bridal bouquet is a time for you to be creative, have fun, and find your perfect look.

Choosing a Wedding Florist

Many brides are unfamiliar with the art of floral arrangement before becoming engaged, and even the basics can quickly become overwhelming. That's where your wedding florist comes in.

Your vision for your dream wedding is a florist's starting point. Taking cues from your gown, venue, bridesmaids' attire, and more, he or she will help you find the flowers to create just the right ambience. Whether it's the rich, deep hue of a red dahlia, or the sweet innocence of pastel peonies, your florist can find the perfect match for your wedding. Best of all, with years of experience behind them, a professional wedding florist can suggest unusual colors or varieties of flowers you might not have even known existed!

Florist Designed vs. DIY Wedding Flowers

Some brides choose to buy flowers wholesale and attempt to design them themselves. They arrive in a cardboard box, a couple of days before the wedding. Brides and their family members scramble to arrange the bouquets and figure out a way to store large arrangements properly before the big day. Unexpected material costs quickly retract from the actual savings. There are many aspects of a wedding that lend themselves to a "DIY" method, but floral design is not one of them. Doing it yourself also means spending much of your wedding week figuring out how to arrange and store flowers, rather than socializing with relatives and loved ones from out of town.

A wedding florist will always be sensitive to the needs of your budget. Your flowers won't come in a box; they'll be carefully set up in the venue by your florist at the peak of freshness. This leaves you time to really enjoy your wedding day. That's the Teleflora florist difference. Find your own Teleflora wedding florist listed by city and state.
