1. Budget Range The first thing you should be able to come to your florist with is a budget!

I have many brides that love sunflowers for their weddings, and what is not to love? They are beautiful, bright, and big! Sunflowers can be used in bouquets, wedding ceremony decor, or they are perfect for table arrangements at the reception like the one pictured below from a Petals & Twigs wedding.
