If organising the flowers for the day are not at the very top of your wedding planning “to-do” list, it will be close to it – after all, flowers are one of the most important features of your marriage celebration, whether it’s a small, intimate affair or an event on a grand scale.
Flowers have been part of matrimonial celebrations through all of recorded history, symbolising love and beauty and adding to the wedding aesthetic simply by being there, providing a colourful cascade of sweet floral delight.
If you’re planning a Highland wedding then talk to us at The Flower Shop Tain as soon as you set the date, and we’ll help you to make your day memorable, choosing wedding flowers to complement the theme, the venue, the dress style, season of the year and, of course, to suit your budget and personal preferences.
As local florists in Tain we love a wedding commission – there’s something so wonderful about using our floristry skills to send a happy couple off into married life surrounded by the scent and sight of sensational floral displays.
As soon as you have decided on your wedding venue and theme we can sit down with you and start putting together a list of the flowers you’ll need to brighten your day.
You probably won’t want or need them all, but here is a checklist of the traditional floral requirements for a wedding to inspire you:
Our professional florists enjoy designing individual, unique wedding flower arrangements and hand-tied bouquets, corsages and boutonniere’s using superior quality fresh blooms and greenery imported from Holland.
We deliver wedding flowers across the Highlands of Scotland, within a 35-mile radius of Tain, covering village locations like Inver, Newton, Portmahomack and towns such as Alness, Golspie, Brora, Invergordon, Dingwall and Inverness.
Choosing which flowers to include in your bouquets and wedding flower arrangements for your Highland wedding can be difficult, but we usually recommend you consider the season as a starting point.
Spring, of course, is signified by an explosion of blossoms – so a wildflower bouquet would be exquisite. In late summer you can consider the indigenous Scottish heather, but even in the depths of winter a Scottish wedding can be brightened by blooms like poinsettias, holly, thistles and the ever-popular peonies, lilies or roses of all hues.
Whatever flowers you have in mind, we can probably source and supply for your nuptials, no matter what the season, through our contacts with Dutch growers.
We’ll put our botanical knowledge together with your bright ideas and produce the perfect personalised floral tribute to complement your marriage celebration.
