4 Things You Should Know Before You Choose Your Flower Girl

Having a flower girl is the best way to make that little one in your family feel special on your big day. They are the first ones to appear on your wedding aisle and announce your arrival. In fact the flower girl and the ring bearer are going to be the cutest members in your wedding party. Traditionally, all the flower girls were meant to wear white and replicate the bride, but not anymore. You can make them look cute and adorable in classic ivory tutus, satins and silks, with a big bow sash that matches your wedding theme.

Here are a few things to consider before you go out to choose your favorite flower girl.

Her Age

Flower girls are generally 3 to 8 years old. Consider her age before you choose a flowing gown for her. Also a young flower girl will always add to the charm and create some awe amongst the guests. Make sure she is old enough to understand your instructions and perform her duties well. Her age will define what she can do, whether its petal toss or banners or something more.

If you can't resist having a young flower girl who is less than five years old, make sure you have an adult supervising them all the time. You may have great ideas to deck them up in beautiful tutus or flowing gowns but will they be comfortable in such clothes, is the question.

How to Buy an Engagement Ring - The Definitive Guide

How to Buy an Engagement Ring - The Definitive Guide

There are some occasions in life you will never forget and several of them revolve around your wedding day. The proposal and actual wedding day are moments you will likely cherish forever, and one of the biggest reminders of both of these occasions is the wedding ring. Certainly you’ll want to make sure that you’ve done your homework, whatever ring you choose. Here are a few suggestions to help along the way.

Decide On a Budget

One of the first things you’ll need to do is decide just how much money to spend. Many people say that your budget for a wedding ring should be two month’s salary. Whether you spend more or less is up to you, but it is a purchase that you hope will last a lifetime, so you should be certain you have thought it through. After you have made this decision, you shouldn’t deviate far from your budget. Paying more money than you’re able doesn’t mean you love your sweetheart more! Of course, this is no time to start skimping, either. The important thing is that you make a good choice based on what you can afford.

Bride's Guide To Choosing Wedding Flowers

Bride's Guide To Choosing Wedding Flowers

As a future bride who is planning her dream wedding you have to create your wedding bouquet, decorations for the lapel, arrangements for the hall and the church. Here are a few steps that will help you in choosing flowers for a wedding and hopefully ease the task a little.

Discover your own style

Close your eyes and imagine what your ideal wedding should look like. Will it be formal or casual? Spelled out in detail or simply? Will you use neutral or bright colors? Are you a traditionalist and do you want the basis of your wedding flowers to be roses or lilies, or are you more contemporary and have nothing against fruits, herbs and spices? Flowers for a wedding are not just decorations, it is the basis of the whole event. Discovering the style of your wedding is a step in the right direction of finding the style of your wedding flowers. You want to choose flowers that will match the level of formality of your wedding.

Choose a color palette

Your color scheme could directly result from the style of your wedding. Today as far as the flowers for the wedding are concerned almost everything acceptable, from flowers in traditional white and pastel shades, to the dramatic dark tones and vibrant colors of nature. Flowers in the same hues or contrasting shades are breathtaking. However, take care that your wedding flowers fit the overall style of the wedding (a color palette of available flowers can be seen here) . At the meeting with the florist take samples of fabric that will be used (edge silk, linen napkins and other details) and an invitation. In this way, the florist can easily find flowers that will perfectly complement the ambience.

Seasonal wedding flowers

When you decide on the colors of the flowers for the wedding it is time to tackle the selection of flowers. Our advice is to choose seasonal flowers (it is much more durable and cheaper). In spring apples, cherries, daffodils, hyacinths, lilies, iris, lilac, lily of the valley, peonies and tulips are in bloom. In summer you will find: beautiful calla, dahlia, daisy, geranium, iris, roses and sunflowers. Autumn flowers that you can choose from include gerbera, marigold, roses and sunflowers. Winter wedding can be brightened with amaryllis, anemone, camellia and not forgetting holly, jasmine and orchids. 

Hire a florist

Even for talented brides with a sense of aesthetic knowledge and skills florists will still be necessary. Your wedding day will be very busy and you do not want to waste your precious time on decorating the venue, assembling bouquets, making arrangements. At the flower shop you do not need to spend too much money. A good florist like The Flower Man will be able to work with any of the flowers for the wedding that you choose within your budget.
