Flowers are a symbolic element in special celebrations such as weddings and quinceañeras. At some point or another, they always add a lovely touch to the most important moments during special celebrations, more specifically during the ceremony and party.
In your case, you can use flowers in your tiara and bouquet. It is also common for the damas and chambelanes to use them as part of their attire. Usually, the reception hall is also decorated with flowers to make it more appealing. Here you can use centerpieces, columns, and a designated table where you and your court of honor will sit.
Take advantage of the spring season to make flowers the element that will make your quince stand out. During spring, the popular flowers are: daisies, roses, hyacinths, daffodils, lilies of the valley, hydrangeas, tulips, and arums. However, in case these choices are too expensive, you can ask for flowers that are more in accordance with your budget.
Keep in mind that when it comes to seasonal flowers, it is recommended that you place your oder at least a month in advance. Usually, flower shops have catalogs with different floral arrangements that let you choose the ones that match the color of your dress. In fact, some flower shops provide a free sample of an arrangement so you can have an idea of how it would look.
There are decorating service businesses that provide special deals that include floral arrangements. It’s just a matter of doing some research.
