Not including flowers in your budget. Often brides think about securing the spaces for the ceremony and celebration, what the dress will cost, transportation costs, and even how to get that perfect wedding cake before they think about the cost of hiring a florist professional. Flowers are often overlooked until the very end of the planning, yet when the bride closes her eyes and pictures the big day she can’t picture it without fresh flowers. Make room in your budget for bouquets and arrangements that will best fit your personal style and speak to the romance and beauty of the big day.

Waiting until the last minute to book your florist. It is best to book your florist at least 6 months in advance. This gives you plenty of time to decide on every detail and for your florist to plan on getting any of the blooms you request shipped in to create your chosen designs.

Not communicating with your florist. If you come into the initial meeting with your florist prepared with the wedding theme and color palette you are off to a good start. Let the florist get to know you. The more they know you, the better job they can do for you, adding in those personal touches that mean so much on the big day.

Steering clear of expensive blooms. Often clients want to save money by staying away from flowers that may cost more, such as orchids or peonies. What you need to understand is that the blooms that may cost a bit more are actually larger than the less pricey flowers and will fill out a bouquet or arrangement in a way that will actually cost less. Know your budget and let Skaff Floral Creations work with you to create impressive arrangements you will love.

Deciding to use only one color. Your wedding should include more than one color. Often brides want to match the bouquets and arrangements to the color of the bridesmaid dresses. This is not ideal for the photography of the event. Work with the team at Skaff Floral Creations to round out the color palette and create bouquets that will pop against the backdrop of the color of the dresses and linens at the celebration, to create stunning photographs of your wedding day.

Choosing an oversized wedding bouquet. Bigger is not always better. There are many things to consider when choosing the size and shape of your wedding bouquet. The dress and your height are major factors in this decision. You want a bouquet shape that doesn’t block the view of your dress, but instead compliments it. The bridal bouquet is an accent piece to your overall look and will be in your hands when the groom first sees you on the day of the wedding. Let Skaff Floral Creations help you look your absolute best.
