How To Keep Your Wedding Flowers Fresh
Getting ready for a wedding can be hectic. No matter how far in advance you plan, you’re always going to find yourself having heaps to do in the week leading up to the big day. Often these tasks can involve sorting out your wedding flowers. Often the cornerstone of the design scheme of your wedding, flowers are of utmost importance when it comes to setting the tone and scene in which you’ll spend one of the biggest days or nights of your life.
Just like you and your bride or groom, it’s important that your flowers looking their best when the flashbulbs are going off. Here are a couple tips for making sure what you pick up is bright and bursting with colour at the right time.
Chucking any bunch of flowers into a random vase you grab out of the cabinet can be asking for trouble. This is especially true when it comes to wedding flowers. Make sure to wash whatever you want to keep the flowers in with hot, soapy water and let it dry. When it comes time to put the flowers in, put as much room temperature water into the vase as it can hold while still leaving enough room for the flowers. This will ensure your flowers don’t get thirsty before it’s showtime.
It’s important to store your flowers in a cool place before they shine in front of those lucky enough to land on your guest list. Now, you don’t want to store them in a spot so cold that icicles start dangling off the petals. However, you do want to store them in a cooler, darker area if possible. Try to keep them in a location that sits around 11-15 degrees. In addition, try to avoid keeping them in direct sunlight or near heating vents.
