Choosing fresh flowers for your wedding decor and arrangements can often add the final and most beautiful touch to your ceremony. Many brides shy away from the idea of using fresh flowers thinking that they are often too difficult to source, pay for and arrange and instead opt for silk flowers to use instead. Although brides may find this option to be more cost effective for their budget – fresh flowers do indeed add a much more elegant and luxurious feel to your ceremony and when chosen properly, can also be more cost effective than silk flowers.

The first step in organizing your arrangements and ensuring that they look the best during your big day is of course to choose the type that will be in bloom during the season of your ceremony. By choosing the right flowers for your seasonal wedding, you will get the most out of your budget and from Summer to Spring – there are an endless amount of options to choose from, each that will perfectly fit in with your wedding days seasonal theme. Fresh flowers will also most importantly provide the ceremony and its guests with a unique ambience and scent that will linger longer in their memories then the presence of any silk bouquet from the day.
