Florist Offers Useful Tips on Choosing Your Wedding Flowers in Houston

So he finally proposed; and there’s little you can do to settle the butterflies in your tummy as you eagerly look forward to walking down the aisle, hand in hand with your partner as you prepare for a blissful future together. Well you haven’t got much time to spare, there’s so much planning and arrangements to be made because it’s your special day and it needs to be close to, if not completely perfect.


Choosing your wedding flowers, especially for your bouquet, is one of the most exciting aspects of wedding planning. After all, when else do you get the chance to exchange vows with the love of your life?

If you’re a bride with little or no experience in floral designs or flowers in general (maybe you can’t tell a chrysanthemum from a carnation, or you think craspedia is some internet slang), then there are lots of factors to consider. These essentials could help bring you to speed so you can comfortably talk flowers with your floral designer and get the perfect look you’re after.

Try to pick your wedding dress before the flowers. When you meet with your floral expert for a consult, remember to bring along a picture of your dress. Your bouquet design should complement the style, detail, and shape of your wedding gown, merging seamlessly to form a single cohesive focal point—you.

Select a bouquet that is comfortable to carry. You will be holding it for most of the day, so it’s not advisable to opt for something that will be awkward to carry and make you stand lop sided or keep your shoulders hunched.

Consider the current season. Talk to your florist about what flowers are in bloom when you’re set to wed and try to make them the mainstay of your arrangements. For instance, as spring approaches, lilacs, peonies, magnolias, and sweet peas are popular blooms in Houston.

Trust the experts. They have ample experience from scores of weddings and know all the little secrets. Of course, the final decision is still up to you, but you may want to thoughtfully consider their recommendations before making a selection.

Wedding flowers bring the whole picture together with elegance and signature colors, while also enhancing the theme of the day. Not to mention the fragrant scents they infuse to the air on your special day.

If flowers are indeed the language of love, then your wedding bouquet is the ultimate statement of romance, and plant shops like River Oaks Plant House, which offer fully customized, topiary masterpieces and flower delivery services, are your best bet to turning your big day into a lovely and memorable occasion.
