Wedding Flowers: Who Gets What

A bride's bouquet is typically the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of wedding flowers, however, there are quite a few other people throughout the ceremony and reception that require the touch of a florist. Amid the chaos of wedding planning, there are a few minute details that can be overlooked with any other florist, but with Buckhead's premier wedding florist, Peachtree Petals, you can be sure none of these details will be missed, ensuring a smooth and exquisite wedding day.

Ushers, Ring Bearers, and Fathers: Ushers, ring bearers, father of the bride and groom, as well as step fathers should have a modified version of the groom’s boutonniere. This can be smaller versions or a slightly different arrangements. Many couples will select a different boutonnieres for fathers and step fathers than the ones adorned by ring bearers and ushers to represent the connection with the couple and the family.

Flower Girls: Flower girls typically carry baskets of petals to throw down the aisle prior to the bridal march. A new trend in weddings features flower girls carrying miniature versions of the bridesmaid’s bouquet or single stem bouquets in lieu of the traditional basket of petals. Flower headpieces are also appropriate for young flower girls and can further the wedding theme and color by adding another pop.

Friends and Other Special Guests: We are seeing family and friends who have passed being honored in such special ways at weddings. One way couples choose to honor those who are in attendance in spirit is by marking a chair with a single flower to represent their place among the ceremony. This stem can be a flower from the bride’s bouquet, a flower with special meaning to the couple, or a stem attached to a family heirloom such as a piece of jewelry.

Many sorority women are finding ways to incorporate their many sisters without feeling the pressure of making them all bridesmaids through the use of flowers. Sorority women can have their sisters don their sorority flower in the form of a single bloom lapel pin. This designates the women as part of something special and a connection to the bride without the bride having to choose between her sisters as attendants.

Mothers and Grandmothers: Mothers and grandmothers of the bride should wear corsages in the color scheme and styling of other wedding flowers. Depending upon the preference of these family members and the couple, these corsages can either be worn on the wrist or pinned to the lapel of a jacket or to a dress.

With just these few arrangements mentioned, it is easy to see the difference that can be made by having Buckhead's top wedding florist working with you for your wedding day.
