Who to Buy Wedding Flowers For

Updated: Jan 15

When I was ordering flowers for my wedding, I found myself scrambling and making lists of who to buy wedding flowers for. I think it's important to preface this blog post with who you buy flowers for is totally your decision. Don't let traditions or "social norms" dictate how you plan your wedding. I quickly learned the fewer opinions involved in the planning process, the better. That being said, here are the most common people and decor items to provide with some sort of floral accessory on the wedding day.


Who to Buy Wedding Flowers For

Bouquets

Bride - Obviously!!! :)


Bridesmaids - Usually similar to the bride's bouquet or save money and make the bridesmaids' bouquets smaller to help the bride stand out.


Flower Girls - This one might depend on the age of the flower girl(s).


Boutonnieres

Group of Boutonnieres

Groom - Don't forget this guy! He's pretty important! :)


Groomsmen - Another important group of fellas!


Ring Bearer - This one might depend on the age of the ring bearer.


Fathers of the Bride and Groom


Grandparents


Godparents - This will definitely vary based on your relationship, but sometimes people will include Godparents in the flower count.


Ushers - Very optional, but a popular role to accessorize with a boutonniere.



Wrist Corsages

Wrist corsage for formal event.

Mothers of the Bride and Groom


Grandparents


Godparents - This will definitely depend on your relationship, but sometimes people like to include their Godparents on their flower list.


Anyone with a role in the ceremony - Examples of this would include your guestbook attendees or anyone who might be saying a special reading at your ceremony.


Decorations

Tablescape for a wedding or formal event.

Cake Flowers - If my wedding flower website, Bloominous, hadn't suggested these for me, I would have totally forgotten to order! The great thing is you can decide how little or how many flowers you want on your cake. It is 100% for show, so not a necessity.


Centerpieces


Backdrops


Garland
