The guidance of a wedding flower professional comes in handy for picking out the right flowers, accessories and decor.

1. Multi-Purpose Wedding Flowers

Reuse flowers that only get to be seen once. For example, reuse the ceremony flowers as centerpieces. After exchanging your vows, your guest usually go to a room for appetizers and drinks, while the wedding party gets their photos taken. During this time, the wedding planner/staff do last minute preps to the ballroom for you and your guest. All you need to do is plan ahead to reuse your ceremony flowers as centerpieces.

2. Use the KISS Principle

"Keep it simple, stupid" principle also applies to wedding flowers. The key goal is to minimize complexity and to build a meaningful wedding presentation. Minimal does not mean a shoddy look rather there is more elegance with a minimalist approach.
