In recent years, preserved flowers have seen an increase in demand for its long-lasting elegance and its variety of colours and options. Many wedding couples choose preserved flowers not just because it’s beautiful, but are able to stand the test of time, to embrace the memories long after what it's used for. Also, the wide range of selection of colours, types and arrangements offers a wide-ranging palette to match your wedding theme and style.
So, what should you consider when crafting your preserved flower arrangements for couples?
Start with a Vision: Think about your overall style and vibe for your wedding, and streamline on what is required, eg. bridal bouquet, boutonniere, corsages, table setups, flower hedges etc. This will be the guidebook in your bouquet’s design. (Tip: Do up a moodboard on Pinterest)
Choose a Key Flower: This key flower will be the centrepiece of your bouquet arrangements. It could be a flower of significance and meaning, or otherwise just a flower you find pretty! We would say that this is an important step, as it sets your tone and arrangement will centre around the key flower.
Texture and Greeny: Various kinds of foliage exude different vibes, whether rustic or luscious greens, they add depth and personality to your arrangement, improving the overall look.
Personal Touches: Just like how you wrote your own story, your bridal preserved flower bouquet arrangement should be customised and special. You can include heirlooms, jewellery, ribbons or any finishing touches to make it unexampled!
Consultation with a Florist: Make your vision come to life with the help of a professional florist! It is important to discuss your ideas, vision and choices so that professional florists, like at Moon Fleur, would be able to turn your vision into reality.
