Alright ladies and gentlemen, the engagement ring is on the finger, invitations are in the mail and your wedding is fast approaching. You grab your face, let out a sigh and realize you have wedding jitters. On top of all of that you start freaking out because you still need to choose wedding flowers. Not just any flowers because my friend this is no ordinary day. It is your wedding day and even if you have been married 5 times before you still want “your day" to be perfect.

Whether you are looking for traditional or contemporary bridal bouquets, corsages, boutonnières and/or centerpieces below are some great ideas that should help calm your jitters.

Floral Arrangements

Floral arrangements for the bridal party, ceremony and wedding reception can mirror your personality and taste. Whether you are planning a small and simple to elegant and extravagant wedding a professional florist can match the unique style and color scheme of your wedding.

Always choose flowers that are fresh and adapted to the season. When picking flowers make sure the petals are firm and upright. Finally, there are three styles of arrangements in the world of floral arrangements. Drum roll please:

1) Oriental Flower Arrangements: The accent is on the lines in the floral arrangement.
2) Traditional Flower Arrangements: This arrangement focuses on the use of many flowers.
3) Modern Flower Arrangements: These floral arrangements are based on the taste of the florist. It resembles oriental more than the traditional style of arranging flowers.


For a timeless and classic wedding, roses will always maximize the scene. Roses are very popular because of the high degree of fragrance and beauty they possess. They are called the “queen of flowers". It is often associated with love, and it is the flower of June, the wedding month. In addition, roses have more than a hundred species.

The origin of the rose dates back to pre-historic times. In fact there is a fossilized rose in the Smithsonian Museum. The rose was declared our National Floral Emblem in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan.

To keep things simple on the big day just remember there are only three primary types people love for weddings:

Miniatures: These roses are beautiful and are ideal for small spaces like back yards and balconies.

Hybrid Teas: These roses have a beautiful shape and are available in a wide variety of colors and shades. And, they have huge blooms.

Floribundas: These relatively smaller flowers with smaller blooms are usually in clusters and come in many colors.

Monochromatic Bridal Bouquets

Monochromatic bridal bouquets will express your modern and bold style. Arrangements featuring only one type of flower (such as all roses, tulips, lilies or iris) are in style and may even include different colors of the same flower. So, go ahead and be bold pick a color, any color and stick with it! If your favorite color is yellow, for example, ask your florist for a fresh bouquet of different flowers in the same color range.

When it comes to choosing wedding flowers, there is a thin line between elated excitement and nervous tension that sometimes reaches the level of being called “stress. " Just remember to breath and let your professional florist handle the rest.

If anxiety over your upcoming wedding is taking a toll on your body, you are constantly having trouble sleeping, feel stressed out and can't seem to stay calm; you need to stop right now. Don't be shy or afraid to admit the stress is getting to you. See a doctor who can help get rid of the anxiety before the big day or try natural remedies that can help calm you down and get some rest. You will be surprised that after you calm down and rest, you will be as good as new and ready to finish planning your big day and ordering your wedding flowers with confidence and ease.
