4 Step Guide to Jewish Wedding Flowers

Flowers are a big part of weddings, and whether you decide to keep it simple or have blooms brimming from every corner, you want the arrangements to reflect your style and the tone of your event. This is easier said than done, and finding a skilled florist who can work within your budget can be quite a task.

There are four key factors to consider when hiring a florist for your Jewish Wedding.

1. Choose a Florist with Experience Planning Jewish Weddings

For a Jewish wedding there are additional considerations such as designing a chuppah (huppah) and the regulations of the temple in terms of ceremony and reception decor.  For this reason, it’s essential to work with a florist that has experience with Jewish weddings.

2. Define Your Budget and Event Logistics

This is a critical place to start the floral planning.  Once you have chosen the venue and location, as well as the wedding party and guest count, you can start visualizing where flowers are needed and how much you’ll need to spend.

You need to consider wedding party flowers, flowers for guests, flowers for the aisle, the chuppah, and possibly the temple bimah.  There’s also the reception decor and table centerpieces, flowers for the cake and a floral arrangement for the escort table.  It can add up quickly, so it is important to get a realistic and thorough proposal from your florist.

3. Decide on Your Color Palette

One of the primary reasons for incorporating flowers is to give the wedding a unified look that ties together the bridesmaid dresses, linens, and venue.

Well-planned floral design can bridge together elements that may not look right together otherwise.  You can’t do anything about the bold red carpet in the ceremony space, but the right aisle runner and clever aisle arrangements can keep it from clashing with your pastel theme.  Flowers and decor can be quite functional in filling space and hiding flaws. Commit to a color scheme and keep in mind all of the other items that will likely be affected by the choice.

4. Take Advantage of Season and Availability

It pays to be practical when choosing your blooms. Choose wedding flowers that are in season and grow local to their wedding location. Seasonal flowers are more readily available, less expensive, and often last longer.  View the Guide to Seasonal Wedding Flowers.
