I always have some flower books, magazines and indeed photographs to peruse but usually mobile phones
are at the ready with photos from that helpful site Pinterest. Got to love it.
However looking at the nitty gritty of all those lovely flowers that have struck a chord, discussion then has to happen as to if flowers choices are available at the time of the wedding, can we substitute something for a less expensive variety (usually that can be a yes), and then colours.
Just a few tips here, if you want to go for one colour, say pink, then perhaps look at adding interesting foliage and different varieties of flowers in the pink spectrum that will give some texture this will then allow the flowers to look less flat.
Shamelessly I am going to mention a magazine I always recommend and that is Wedding Flowers and Accessories - available from Sainsbury's, or a newsagent should be able to get it for you. It is full of lovely ideas and even more importantly it has a section called Flower Lookbook that showcases bouquets, table centres and colour palettes. Invaluable..
The process of choosing flowers for a wedding can take days, or moments. Before I go, another top tip is to speak with your photographer and let them know what photographs you would like of your flowers. Usually they are amazing at seeking out those essential shots, but if you have a specific flower you have chosen for a sentimental reason that has been included in your flowers, then it might be worth mentioning so they can take some lovely photos.
