How Should a Couple Narrow Down Flower Choices for Their Wedding?

There’s an art and science to choosing your wedding flowers. Keep in mind, the florals will be one of the most noticeable (and photographed) décor elements. So you’ll want to choose a bloom that reflects your personal style — and ties your entire celebration together. For example, your wedding color palette and flowers will go hand-in-hand. 

Now comes the science: Flowers, like everything in nature, have a time and a season. Your wedding date will heavily determine the availability and price of your preferred flowers. Ask your florist and wedding planner for help determining which flower is best for you.
