How to "pick" the right flowers

We at Nashville Event Planning now offer a floral service.  We will help design and create the most beautiful centerpieces and bouquets.  Being that we are planners, we understand the importance of staying within a  budget, so we will work closely with you to ensure you get the biggest bang for your buck and are more than happy with the results.  We are looking out for your best interest!

There are several things that you should take into account when deciding on the flowers you will have on your big day.  One of those things being the season.  The season in which you order your flowers is very important because it will determine what flowers will be available at that time.  It also could make a big impact on your budget if the flowers you choose are scarce because they are out of or at the end of their season.  Here is a list of some stunning flowers often used in weddings, and the seasons in which they are available:

Winter
 Amaryllis
Carnations

Poinsettias

Ranunculus

Sweet Peas


Spring
Orchids

Gerberas

Juliet Roses and Garden Roses

Hydrangeas

 Peonies

Summer
Billy Balls

Spider Mums

Poppies

Alstroemerias

Freesias

 Fall

Stock, fall daisies, mustard yellow spider mums and dahlias


Calla Lily

 Yarrows


While choosing the flowers for your bouquet, you want to keep in mind the size of the bouquet vs. the size of the dress.  If you have a giant bouquet with a slim fitting gown then you might be hiding your beautiful dress that everyone is dying to see!  Or on the other hand, if you have a smaller bouquet with a voluptuous ballgown, your flowers might get lost in a sea of dress.  Make sure to find something that will complement your dress.

Remember that the more expensive flowers aren't always a bad idea.  Some options higher in price might cover more ground, like peonies.  They're more expensive, but they are bigger so you don't have to use as many flowers to create a centerpiece or bouquet.


Give us a call so we can get started on designing your perfect day!  We will give you what you need from the coordinating right down to the invitations and flowers.  Make us your one-stop-shop so that we can take care of all the work and you can sit back and relax!

Live, Laugh, Love
