Tips for Selecting Wholesale Flowers Online for Your DIY Event:
1. Create a Simple Balance: Choose 1-3 Focal flowers, which are large flowers and will act as a mechanical tool to help you create bouquet shape. Choose 2-3 secondary flowers, which are smaller flowers that will fill in space and create texture. Choose 1-2 fillers, which will be used for boutonnieres, corsages, and arrangements. Last, choose 1-2 types of greenery that will act as the finishing touch to all your arrangements. If this overwhelms you, keep it simple, order one focal flower, one secondary flower, one filler, and one greenery to mix together for all the arrangements.
Some great focal flowers include rose, garden roses, peonies, lilies, gerbera daisies, hydrangeas, orchids, succulents, calla lilies, football mums, spider mums, cremon mums, stock, and sunflowers. Great secondary flowers include lisianthus, alstroemeria, spray roses, freesia, larkspur, asters, carnations, sweetheart roses, delphinium, dianthus, allium, and much more. Take a look at our fillers and greens categories for those variety examples.
The bouquet below is the perfect example of balance. Thre are 3 focal flowers that include peonies, garden roses, and dahlias. The secondary flowers are the spray roses. The billy balls act as fillers, and the greenery is the dusty miller.
2. Colors Do Not Have To Be Exact: Select colors that are complementary or shade of your wedding colors. Picking exact colors can lead to some trouble. Keep in mind that flowers are a part of nature. Each harvest and crop is highly dependent on environmental conditions that are constantly fluctuating. These fluctuations can produce variations in color.
3. There is No Right or Wrong Way: Each has different taste, the great part of ordering your wedding flowers yourself is getting to pick the exact flowers you imagine. You get to completely customize the colors and flowers to your liking, and there is no wrong way. Floral design is creative, so you can’t go wrong, even if you have never arranged flowers before.
4. When in Doubt Keep It Simple: If all this talk about color, variety, and size is making your head spin then keep it simple. Create your arrangements with all one type of flower. Pick one beautiful focal flower and stick with it. A great example is using only sunflowers at a wedding; this can be very high impact yet EXTREMELY easy and affordable.
