Facts and Questions
How do I get started?
Consider the time of year you’re getting married and what’s in season. See below for a list of seasonal flowers. Or start by creating a color palette you love. You could go to a paint shop and pull swatches that match the mood and feel of your day. There are plenty of design examples online, or take a look at some of the floral designs Rebecca has created. Follow the instructions below to set up a consultation with Rebecca at her shop located at 114 Main Street, Northampton, MA.
How much should I budget?
The sky’s the limit when it comes to flowers for your wedding, but realistically you can plan on spending about 8% of your overall budget. This covers the bride’s bouquet, bridesmaids’ bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and ceremony and reception arrangements. How much you actually spend depends on many different factors, such as whether or not the flowers you choose are in season in your area, the size and complexity of the arrangements, and how far the flowers must travel to the ceremony and reception. Be sure to have your budget worked out in advance of meeting with Rebecca for the first time so she can show you all the options in your price range. (Quoted from theknot.com)

Selecting Flowers in Season
Why is this something to consider? Purchasing flowers that are available during the time of year of your wedding means they are readily available, more affordable and hearty. That doesn’t mean you have to go this route but knowing what’s available can guide you in putting your vision together.
