Here at Lang Floral Designs, we have created wedding flowers for more than 100 weddings. There are so many great ideas out there for wedding decor, color pallets and flowers, that it can feel impossible to choose. But we always love when couples choose a style that fits their own personality to create a wedding that is unique to the bride and groom. Here are 15 of my favorite weddings for you to be inspired by while choosing the perfect wedding flowers and decor for your own big day.

If you’re hiring a pro florist…

If you’re hiring a professional florist, make sure you let them be the expert. In my experience, brides usually have a few specific inspiration photos they love, but they haven’t locked down firm ideas on every single floral item (for example, the boutonnières, flowers for some wedding signage, aisle markers, etc.). But this is actually the best place to be.

Some brides feel so pressured to “be prepared” for their initial consultation, that they feel the need to have chosen each and every detail before the first meeting. However, it always works best if the bride has a few ideas that she likes floral-wise, and lets me give her my expert opinion on what’s going to work best for her specific type of wedding. I always ask to see her full Pinterest board so I can see the overall style she’s looking for, and from there, I can make suggestions taking into consideration the look, the budget, and the venue.

Let Your Florist Make Suggestions on Wedding Flowers and Decor to Fit Your Budget

For instance, let’s say the bride has a certain style of floral centerpiece she likes, but she has a limited budget. If she’s flexible, I can create that floral centerpiece using a vessel that we already have in our rental inventory to save her money. And if she has a large guest count and large amount of guest tables needing centerpieces, I might suggest a secondary (less expensive) centerpieces that’s made up of some of our rental lanterns and loose greenery. Pairing a colorful floral centerpiece with a coordinating all-greenery centerpiece can be a great way to make the most of a bride’s budget.

Here’s how those two types of centerpieces look together:

So, here are 15 of my favorite weddings we’ve done to date. We have worked on more than 100 weddings, but these made the top for one reason or another.
