We have provided a list's of what you need, some suggestions you may want to incorporate however are not entirely necessary, a list of the most popular flowers, the months they are available in and more...

Whether you choose locally grown flowers or imported flowers from across Canada and the US your florist will create a stunning assortment for you & your Bridal party. Most florists will try to suggest what is in season however if you have your heart set on a particular flower that is not in season the price will increase. You can have matching bouquets for the ends of the pews or chairs for your ceremony and centerpieces for your wedding reception.

Tips: If you are using fresh flowers on your wedding cake be sure to tell your florist and check with your baker if your flowers are safe to use and are Non-toxic and pesticide free. Choose one shade of color from your bridal bouquet to use for your decorations to create a unified look. Examples: favor ribbons, napkins, candles, vases, table runners.

Your Wedding Flower Budget

Your wedding flowers can be very simple and elegant however depending on the flowers you have chosen and the larger the bouquet the more work is involved, increasing your cost. You can have your florist do as little or as much as you wish. Prices vary among florists, so be sure to get at least three quotes. There is no average price for flowers, anywhere between $1000.00 - $8000.00 depending on how extravagant you want to go. Determine where it is important for you to have flowers and work from there. A good florist will suggest alternatives.

Budget Tip: You can use the pew marker bouquets and have someone transfer them to the reception to re-use them for the centerpieces. Use your Bridal Bouquets as flower arrangements for your head table.
