Floral arrangements add color and fragrance while pulling together the ceremony and reception theme.  Avoid overdecorating your site.  Instead, enhance the ambiance of the day with flowers.

Meet your florist at their shop so you can see and smell flower samples.  Use the florist's expertise to help you achieve the look you wand and browse through their idea books and portfolios.  Bring a swatch of your grown and bridesmaids' dresses, and cutouts from magazines of bouquets and floral arrangements that caught your eye.  Also bring any specific information about the ceremony and reception area, including a list of the times and locations for decorating and delivery.
