wild wedding flowersWedding flowers, ah. It’s one of brides’ favorite part in a wedding. The flowers that you will carry in your hand down as your father walks you down the aisle. That bouquet of flower means so much at this wedding and you probably want the best wild wedding flowers to be used.

While it seems fun, the journey of searching for the most beautiful and dazzling flowers can bring you are a lot of disappointment if you don’t prepare yourself!

Careful of references!

We understand that a lot of brides find references from various online sources such as Pinterest and Weheartit. They really show some of the best wedding bouquet design from the most creative florists. You might be eager to show your florist those designs or want to pick up a certain flower from that design to be used.

But often than not, brides don’t realize that those flowers don’t bloom year-round. Some of them only bloom for a brief time and you might not be able to get them for your wedding flowers. If that’s the case, then what can you do?

Import or replace

One way to do it is to have the flowers sent from other parts of the world where the flower blooms. It could be as close as the state below you or as far as the neighboring country. But that is pretty complicated and will mean extra fee on your side. The next option is to replace the flowers.

This means replacing them with existing flowers that bloom by then but bears a similar resemblance to the flower you want. This is not an easy thing to do because your florist has to be creative and possess enough knowledge about wild wedding flowers, like www.briarroseflowers.co.uk.

Drawbacks of flowers!

Flowers are plants and often they are named based on their characteristics. For example, baby’s breath is called so due to the smell of sour milk when a lot of them are gathered. Hence, ‘baby’s breath’ smell. Other flowers, such as Lily of the Valley, Azalea or Chrysanthemum can be poisonous to animals or humans. Depending on your guests and party, you also need to be careful about the choice of flowers you make!

But don’t worry, not every flower is poisonous such as roses and you can also put them in places where animals don’t generally climb up to eat them. Not when you are serving tasty food!

Caring for them

Some florists send the flowers one day before your wedding because they don’t want to be late on the next day. Having the flowers at home are ready to go is also easier for you, but the challenges lie in caring for it. One day of lack of care can make the flowers look dead and awful.

Ask your florist to help you with it if you are not sure how to do it. Otherwise, you need to Google about it from the amount of water for the wild wedding flowers to how to care for the ribbons if you have them. You also need to make sure the flowers are dipped in preservatives to keep them fresh.
