Weddings and beautiful flowers go hand in hand. Fresh flowers, silk flowers, dried flowers and preserved flower arrangements alike require special preparations and planning. Whether you intend to hire a professional florist or make your own wedding floral arrangements, it is a good idea to create a checklist of flowers that you will need for your special day.

The following list includes flower arrangements for the wedding ceremony, wedding reception, bridal party members, family members and other individuals providing special services or assistance throughout your wedding day. Use the checklist below as a general guide to assist you in creating your own personalized checklist of flowers. Add or remove items from the list based on your wedding day needs. Creating wedding checklists well in advance will not only give you and/or your family time to plan and save money for expenses, but it will assist you in keeping your wedding plans organized and detailed.
