How You Can Arrange Flowers for Outdoor Weddings

A wedding is not complete without flowers as they add glamour to it. Coming up with right flower arrangements for your outdoor wedding requires extra preparation because you cannot compare it with an indoor wedding. You need to put into consideration the style, time of the year, your preferable colour and types of flowers for the wedding in order to arrive at the right arrangement.

Your style of wedding will determine how your flowers will be arranged. If you are planning a casual affair, it will be reflected in your arrangements and if you want to go a formal type, your display of flowers should be able to reflect it. A range of containers should be brought together to hold the flowers. If the wedding is casual, you can make use of mason jars or glass milk bottles. On the other hand, if you are planning a formal affair, you can go for silver bowls or fine vases. Moreover, you should know the flowers that are in season so that you will be able to keep your costs down. Those that are in the season don’t seem to be as costly as those out of season.

You should also consider the shape, size as well as colour and if you don’t want to buy flowers, you can consider picking wildflowers. You can go online for samples of arrangements so that you will have what to refer to when coming up with your own. Before the actual date, you should practice assembling your flowers. You should bring together everything you will need like the green floral foam, containers, and a collection of flowers and greenery. You should try different arrangements until you are able to find the one you like. You can take a picture of your choice arrangement and keep it till when you will need it.

A day before the wedding, you should put together your chosen arrangements. You can ask your relations and friends to help you out so that the process will be easier, quicker and less stressful. You can then set them up on the day of the event and you should ensure that you put enough water in each of them so that they will be protected from evaporation. Since the wedding will be taking place outdoor, the rate of evaporation will be high, but if you add enough water to the flowers, they will be able to replace lost water quickly and maintain their good shape.
