Choosing flowers

Different flowers may be in bloom depending on the location of the wedding. The couple can check with local florists in advance to determine the best flowers for a wedding. In some cases, florists can order common wedding flowers even if they are not in bloom locally.

Alternatives to Common Wedding Flowers

Wild flowers are an inexpensive alternative to wedding flowers. The day of the wedding, ask wedding attendants to collect wild flowers and bind them together with ribbon. The bouquet can be presented to the bride immediately before walking down the aisle.
