Choosing Your Flowers
If you are like us, your flower naming stops at rose, lily, geranium and a few more, so knowing what you want in your wedding flowers is unlikely. Then of course the seasons come into play. Some brides find pictures that they like, others like to see what is available at the time of year and some will just go to the florist and say, "I want red.." Whatever your approach, we hope that our carefully selected links might help!

Choosing Your Florist
We get to see the work of many florists, but often the flowers arrive whilst we are photographing and we don't get to meet the florist. Here is a starter list of known to us fabulous flower angels who have been praised by our brides....

D.I.Y. Wedding Flowers
Unless you want the most simple of tied flowers, then DIY floristry is one step too far!! However, I did somehow manage to create my sister's wedding bouquet and have made floral head-dresses that looked quite lovely... but did not last the day. If you are really excited by the prospect, then please get as much advice as possible. Do also consider that, by the time you have practiced, there may not be any saving!
