Will your Jewish wedding be a black tie formal affair or a simple garden ceremony?

No matter what type of wedding you're planning, flowers will enhance your day with color, romance and nature's beauty.

Some brides chose to select their wedding dress design and bridesmaid's dresses before picking a color theme or palette for their wedding. Fabric swatches can then be taken to the florist selected. Wedding flowers should complement the colors and fabric of your wedding gown.

Wedding Flower Idea

When selecting a color palette for your wedding flower arrangements, pick colors you love. You can chose one color and accent it with lighter and darker shades of the same color or pick one central color and chose different colors as accents.

The colors for your wedding invitations, thank you notes, table decorations, flowers, even the wedding cake decoration can all be tied together as a unified visual theme.

If you're concerned how the ambient lighting in the synagogue or reception site may affect your color selections, consider visiting them before placing any orders.

Other brides choose to pick what is seasonally available to control costs or decorate with the flower representing the month they are to be married.

March - jonquil

April -sweet pea

May -lily of the valley

June - rose

July - larkspur

August - gladiolus

When selecting a florist ask friends and relatives for recommendations. Visit several florists before deciding upon one and be sure to get all arrangements in writing. Some brides chose to go with fresh wedding flower arrangements while others chose silk wedding flowers.

Many florists will expect a deposit, but do not pay the full amount until the conclusion of your Jewish wedding ceremony.
