How to Choose the Right Flowers for Any Occasion

send flowers onlineChoosing the right flowers for your special occasion can be difficult. There are so many things to consider, including the time of the year, the specific occasion, your budget, and the venue. Besides these essential considerations, you also need to consider where you will be purchasing your flowers. Will you be visiting an online flower shop or going in person? Do you want to have the flowers delivered for extra convenience, and will you be scouting around for cheap flowers? To help you decide how to select the perfect flowers for your event, we have compiled a handy guide, which will make everything so much easier.

Romantic occasions

If you are planning on a same day flower delivery for the love of your life, you may want a little help. It could be that you aren’t sure whether to go for a traditional bouquet of roses or to opt for a quirkier display of blooms. Red roses are very popular for Valentine’s Day and anniversaries and if you know your partner enjoys traditional romance, then you can’t go wrong with a huge bouquet of deep red roses. Should you want to gift them something a little different, but not venture into the realm of “completely out there”, consider pink or white roses. Steer clear of yellow roses, unless yellow is your partner’s favourite colour, as yellow roses symbolise friendship rather than romance.

A birthday bouquet

When sending flowers to a friend for their birthday, it would be ideal to send flowers that you know are their absolute favourites. However, even the closest of a friend may not know each other’s favourite flowers. As mentioned above, yellow roses signify friendship, but other choices will show your friend just how much they mean to you. A mixed bouquet of pink and white roses and carnations, teamed with delicate flowers such as snowdrops make for a gorgeous display that your friend will love.

One top tip to keep costs down for wedding flowers is to select flowers that are in season for the month you are getting married. Roses are an affordable option in addition to being incredibly romantic, which is why so many people choose them as their wedding flowers. Another tip is that once you know which colours you want as your theme, you can team these colours with your selection of flowers. It will accentuate your theme and minimise the need for extra décor as the flowers will already be doing all the work. It is also worth, taking into consideration your wedding venue as if the décor is already very busy, you won’t want elaborate flower displays to clash with this.
