Bridal Bouquets for your LDS Temple Wedding(Temple Sealing & your Wedding Reception
First the LDS bride and groom, and their receptive families, have jointly decided on all the overall the concepts, selected a LDS Temple, the wedding reception location(s) [Yes, I said wedding receptions -as many LDS brides and groom families live in different parts of the country], times and dates of your LDS Temple Wedding and Reception. Then the LDS couple should talk to a professional wedding florist in the area of your Reception(s) about your Bridal Flower and Bouquet needs and concerns. If possible, choose an established professional florist who specializes in bridal bouquets, wedding table decorations (with flowers) and the remaining flower arrangements.
A skilled florist can help you choose blooms for your bridal bouquet with specific colors that you have selected for your reception. The wedding florist can let you know which flowers are in season in your wedding reception colors.
Since you and your groom have initially agreed on basic details of your LDS temple wedding and the wedding reception. Then you will need talk to a professional wedding florist in the area about your bridal bouquet and any specific needs that you may have on your wedding flower and your wedding bouquet. If possible, choose an established wedding florist that specializes in wedding bouquets. A first class profession wedding florist can help you choose the blooms that come in the colors you want in your bouquet and which flowers come in multiple colors. Most wedding florists can also advise you on what flowers are in season on your LDS Temple Wedding day.
The bridal bouquet should be the first of the flowers to be designed by your wedding florist that you have selected for your wedding and wedding reception flower. Elements of the bridal bouquet flowers should be echoed in the bridesmaid's bouquets (which should be smaller than the bride's bouquet) and boutonnieres for the men in the wedding party, and also in the wedding table centerpieces and floral décor around the wedding venue and reception hall.
Selecting the specific flowers and colors that you'll use, however, is just the beginning. Flowers are the raw materials for the bridal bouquet, bridesmaid's bouquets, and the boutonnieres for the men, as well as wedding centerpieces, wedding table decorations, and remaining wedding flower arrangements. Under a skillful hand, flowers that are pretty all by themselves become stunning when combined with each other in the right way.
Wedding Florists can use their creative expertise to help brides to make good decisions about the general size and shape of the bridal bouquet. Bridal bouquets can be a nosegay, globe, cascade, or gathered. These varieties all look remarkably different from each other, so make sure you see pictures of each and understand the different uses of each. The florist can pair the perfect shape with the kind of flowers you love the best to make a really great bouquet.
