For anyone that has ever met with me regarding their wedding flowers, I have a battle cry that I state over and over. Pick a theme and stick to it.
How does this save you money on your wedding flowers? Honestly, it's not about having tons of flowers everywhere, it's more about creating a lasting impression. Impressions are more easily made when a distinctive color theme or flowers are used over and over. How often have we seen flowers for a wedding where there are 5 or 6 bright colors all mixed together and after the event is done it's hard to recall what flowers were used or even what the exact color theme was. The eye finds many colors and too many texture to be confusing, leaving more of a confused impression instead of a favorable one.
Don't forget that you should be looking for your wedding flowers and decor to represent you as a couple. No one would ever disagree, throwing a wedding takes lots of work, planning and money. Picking a striking but simple color combination for your flowers and decor will not only it make it easier for you as you plan your details, it will also keep you from doing over the top decor that will break your budget.
Happy Wedding Planning!!
