Planning your wedding is probably something you have been dreaming of for many years. Most girls start dreaming of their perfect wedding day when they are nine or ten, but as the time draws closer, there are so many things to take into consideration.
One of the main considerations is your Auckland wedding flowers. Flowers play such an important role in any wedding, they are carried by the brides, they are used by the groomsmen, the groom and bridesmaids, not to mention flowers are used to decorate the tables at the reception.
Choosing the right flowers is as important as ensuring you have fresh flowers rather than false ones. Many brides are so worried the flowers will wilt, especially in the heart of summer, but with some care and following set instructions offered by your florist, the flowers should outlast your wedding day.
Different flowers have different meanings and you’ll also want to choose your Auckland wedding flowers based on the theme you have chosen or the season you are holding your ceremony and reception.
Bright red roses are a symbol for love and often used for centre pieces on a reception table, while tulips are a symbol for passion and many brides use tulips in their bridal bouquet and on their reception tables.
Orchids are also a sign of love while baby’s breath symbolize innocence and lilies symbolize beauty. While you probably don’t want to concentrate too hard on the meaning of your Auckland wedding flowers, you do want to ensure that the flowers you choose show off your dress, make a good impression and brighten up the aisle and reception room.
During summer, bright and colourful flowers can be a welcome addition to your wedding ceremony and reception from decorating the aisles of the church to brimming arrangements on each of the reception tables.
During the winter months, on the other hand, you want warm colours, deep oranges, reds and whites, colours that ooze warmth and yet still offer you wedding that “wow” factor you are looking to achieve.
Choosing Your Florist
Choosing a local florist is very important, especially for Auckland wedding flowers where the weather can get exceptionally hot during summer. A local florist can deliver fresh flowers directly to your door, reception venue or church on the day of the wedding to ensure that they don’t wilt and remain looking bright and fresh throughout the day.
Windsor Florist, based in Papakura, is a good choice for Auckland wedding flowers. This florist delivers throughout the Auckland area and has over thirty years combined florist experience with weddings from bouquets to magnificent flower arrangements.
Windsor Florist suggests that you always keep your bouquets well watered before the ceremony and ensure you keep them in a cool place. If you have your flower delivery hours before the ceremony and it’s a really hot day, you can place your bouquet in the fridge to keep it as cool as possible, though water is the main criteria to keep your flowers fresh throughout the day.
