5 tips for your wedding flowers1. Choose in-season flowers
When planning your wedding color scheme, think about what flowers will compliment your bridal attire. It is common for brides to take a picture and fabric swatch of their bridesmaids’ dresses to the florist, so the florist can recommend flowers that will pair well. In addition, the florist can match the bouquet wrap to the dresses.
3. Flowers evoke symbolism
When selecting your wedding flowers, you may want to choose flowers that represent what you envision for your marriage. For example, Astroemeria symbolizes friendship and devotion and prosperity and Azaleas represent first love and passion. Ask your florist for additional ideas for symbolic flowers to incorporate into your day.
We hope these ideas help you select the right flowers for your dream wedding. As you prepare for your wedding day, another idea to consider is buying wedding insurance. Markel offers wedding cancellation insurance, which reimburses you for lost deposits and non-refundable amounts if you have to cancel or postpone your wedding due to unforeseen circumstances such as extreme weather, venue bankruptcy, or vendor no-shows (including refunding your deposit if your florist double books your wedding date and forgets to deliver your flowers). Coverage can be purchased anytime at least 14 days before your event, and policies start as low as $130.
Markel also offers wedding liability insurance, protecting you from incidents outside of your control such as property damage to the venue or if someone gets injured at your event. Up to $2 million in wedding liability insurance can be purchased from Markel any time up to the day before your event. Policies start as low as $75.
