by LDS Living Staff
If you're planning a wedding this spring, you've probably got flowers on the brain, along with a few other things. So here's a guide to help you choose what kind of flowers you'll have and who'll wear them.
Every bride knows how essential flowers are to her wedding. The trick is knowing how to choose flowers that will create the look and feel you would like your wedding to portray. Here are some helpful tips for choosing the perfect flowers.
Flowers Should Accent the Bride

The bridal bouquet is an important feature of your wedding, but as important as it is, be careful to select one that does not take the focus away from you. Your frame and size will determine how big your bouquet is and what type of bouquet you select.
