Tips for Success from Our Wedding Planners

Begin with researching what you like – search Pinterest and magazines and bring your ideas with you when you meet with the florist in Destin. Also, expect to spend at least 10 percent of your budget on flowers so have an amount in mind to discuss with your florist.

When you meet your florist, discuss your wedding theme, colors and environment where your venues are i.e. outdoor, indoor, etc. An experienced florist in Destin will be able to help you identify your wedding floral needs for everything from the bridal party to the rehearsal dinner to the beach wedding to the reception. The key is finding seasonal flowers that are in line with your vision and budget.

Types of Destin Wedding Bouquets

What’s the difference between all the different types of wedding bouquets? What kinds of arrangements do you need for your wedding? What’s the best type of flowers for a beach wedding? Here are some things to consider with your florist in Destin:

Round Elegant Bouquets

Roses are traditional for a round style bouquet but a budget friendly tip is to incorporate hydrangeas as a base. There area also some new varieties of David Austin Garden Roses that are breathtaking. Peonies are also beautiful and romantic. You can also add greenery for a softer, fuller look. The possibilities are endless with colors and textures.

Garden Style Bouquets

Garden-style bouquets blossom with romance and elegance. Garden roses and Peonies add even more to the romance. Throughout your mix of flowers, you’ll want greenery and texture. Hypericum berries, succlulents, astilbe and dahlias can all add texture. Add height with stock, orchids, lisanthus, etc. Consider a whimsical touch with billy balls, queen anne’s lace, baby’s breath, scabiosa pod, button poms, dianthus and silver brunai.

Rustic Style Bouquets

For a rustic feel, choose a combination of flowers that looked like they were just picked from the field. You’ll want ample greens like Baby’s breath mixed with smaller flowers; sunflowers, wild flowers (delphinium, wax flowers, black eyed susans, etc…), curly willow, blue thistle, hypericum berries

Tropical Style Bouquets

For Florida destination beach weddings, Tropical blooms not only offer bright colors but can withstand humidity and heat from the beach. Think Orchids, Birds of Paradise, Red Ginger, Pin Cushions protea, etc.


When choosing ribbon color/flower color, think about what the groomsmen and bridesmaids are wearing and coordinate accordingly. Use natural colors in your flowers, bringing in unnatural, accent colors (navy, turquoise, vibrant colors, etc. …) through ribbon and linen.
