Flowers Friday!

Brianna’s beautiful spring wedding at Hermitage Rippy Estate in Mobile, Alabama was a dream. One of the special touches that I loved most was the floral designs!

Jean McGrury of After the Proposal Weddings and Events did such a lovely job making everything go together so perfectly. Hydrangeas are a personal favorite of mine so it never gets old to photograph them!

What are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your florals if you will have an outdoor wedding? We have asked our friends at After the Proposal Weddings and Events, who offer in-house floral design, what advice they would give. Let’s dive in, shall we?!

 

Florals for outdoor weddings and receptions by After the Proposal Weddings and Events

One of the most important aspects of your wedding is the décor and most décor choices involve a various number of flowers.  During the summer months choosing the right flowers and locations is key to having the flowers you chose to stay fresh and crisp.

Heat and direct sunlight can cause your flowers to wilt even if they are properly watered and prepared by your florist. To ensure the best results with the flower arrangements you want to choose a location in the shade and out of direct sunlight such as a tent or a canopy of trees. This will also help the area to be a bit cooler than the actual temperature surrounding the area witch your guest will also appreciate.

Spritzing the flower arrangement with a light mist of water will help the overall cooling of the flowers and give them more longevity.

The types of flowers you choose will also make a big difference in the longevity of your arrangements.

Choosing a flower that would normally be in bloom in a garden is a good start and during the summer months, there is a large variety of flowers in the height of their bloom to choose from.

Some flowers such as lilies and zinnia are more heat tolerant, while others like the popular hydrangea require extra care in prepping and placement.

Overall it best to meet with your florist and discuss the flower types and placement that would best suit your vision and have the best longevity.
