Guide to Choosing the Right Flowers for the Occasion

INTRODUCTION With the abundant amount of beautiful flowers that are available, it can be a daunting task to choose the right arrangement for a particular occasion. However, there are certain guidelines you can follow to make this process an easier and more enjoyable one.

WEDDINGS Weddings are momentous occasions that require elaborate co-ordination and attention to detail. Flowers are an important component of the wedding planning process and as such, you want to give careful thought to your wedding flowers, bouquets and floral centerpieces.

WEDDINGS It is important to remember there is no correct or incorrect choice of floral arrangements for your wedding; select flowers that depict your personality and which adheres to your preference and budget. Floral arrangements to consider: bride’s bouquet, floral dÊcor for other members of the wedding party (flower girl, bridesmaids, groomsmen etc;) and flowers for the wedding venue (centrepieces etc;). Typically, flowers are chosen according to the theme or color scheme of the wedding. Selecting flowers that are in season is better for the budget.

BIRTHDAY Giving flowers for a birthday is an especially thoughtful gift but you have to consider several different factors. Think about the personality of the individual you are getting flowers for, your relationship with that individual and your budget.

BIRTHDAY If you are purchasing flowers for a special woman in your life, consider the type of person she is and what you want to say with the bouquet. A classic bouquet of roses (of the appropriate color for the particular relationship) may be a safe option. A bold arrangement of exotic flowers may be suitable for a lady who enjoys uniqueness. Men may enjoy receiving creative vibrant flowers or potted plants that require minimal care. Kids will cherish flowers that are accompanied by a birthday balloon or some other memorabilia like a stuffed toy or mug.

GET WELL A floral arrangement is a wonderful gesture of best wishes and is bound to make your loved one feel better. Scent-free flowers are ideal for hospitals but are also generally popular as ‘get well’ arrangements. Vibrant flowers are expressive and will have a positive effect on mood. Potted plants which are easy to take care of is another option which will be appreciated by individuals who are recovering.

FUNERAL/SYMPATHY Express your sincere condolences and communicate care and support for the family using a floral arrangement. Take particular care of the meanings associated with the color and type of flower. Choosing colors like blue or white (which signify comfort and peace) is more fitting than arrangements of green plants (which is an expression of good health and fortune). If you were close with the individual being commemorated, an arrangement of their favourite flowers may be admired.

CONCLUSION Flowers add an eloquent touch to any occasion. Whether you are choosing floral decor for your wedding day or picking out flowers to give to another individual for a certain occasion, the elegance and sentiment of a floral arrangement is sure to be appreciated.
