Chances are you’re aware of the countless circumstances that have made planning a wedding incredibly difficult right now — both for the couple getting married and for their hard-working sales team. While it’s undoubtedly a big plus that weddings can actually happen normally to a greater degree than we’ve seen in the last year and a half, it’s certainly not hassle-free.

This is especially true when it blooms at your wedding. Although the recent times has permanently affected so many industries, the world of flowers is one of the slowest to recover. “When the world was closed last March, the borders closed to many countries, so producers could no longer ship their products,” says Kimberly Sisti, a San Diego-based wedding planner, owner and designer of Sisti & Co. “As a result, many left the company without being able to stay afloat, and the farms that could stay in the company had no idea what or how much to plant.”

What the majority of these flower farms did in the end was a significant reduction by fewer plants. Not only did this make it possible not to waste the product, but it was also the only choice for some farmers who no longer had employees due to blockages.

Now, given the recent wedding boom, events are coming back in full force. However, there is a massive shortage of flowers. “No one was sure how much to plant six months ago, so the quantities of flowers that are now available for purchase for the large influx of weddings remain low,” Sisti says. “This leaves many without the flowers they had planned for their wedding.”

In addition to the shortage caused by the recent times, there is also the glaring reality that some flowers are simply not available outside their natural season. “It’s not that farms choose not to make more money, but not to plant them for purchase, but simply because they don’t grow or produce enough to make the space, time and cost of off-season planting worthwhile,” Sisti says. “This can make it difficult when customers come to florists and ask for a particular flower when it is not available.”

Fortunately, florists are usually creative people and have mastered the ability to go beyond and think outside the box to make their clients’ wedding dreams come true, no matter what. Whether you’re working with a florist or you’re looking for one for your special day, here are some florist hacks that can help you make your dream wedding come true.

Look-Alike flower recommendation

The simplest Alternative for a flower that can not be received in time for a wedding is to ask your florist to recommend similar flowers. “If you fill an Arrangement or Installation with green or dried herbs, you can combine wonderfully with any flowers you choose,” says Bron Hansboro, florist and owner of the Bron flower Shop in Richmond, Virginia. “Most couples will be open to the idea, and they may even propose flowers that may be local, as many would also like to prioritize sustainability and supporting small businesses.”

Coloring with a custom shade

If a couple is thrilled for a particular flower because its color matches their wedding palette, Hansboro uses this clever trick. “Instead of looking for a colorful flower that is rare, we can enhance the petals of a similar flower by giving them a custom shade,” he says. “As long as the alternative flowers have the same composition and the same complete flowers, the dried and preserved elements can be just as useful to add an extra touch of variety.”

Turning garden roses into “peonies”

One of the most popular and in demand flowers for weddings is peony. But unfortunately, this flower has a very small window of availability. Christy “CeCe” Todd of CeCe Designs and Events in Birmingham, Alabama, and her team are starting to get creative by changing the look of flowers similar to Garden Roses. “One of my favorite Hacks for this is to remove the head from a garden rose and then stick it back on or fix it upside down on an old stem,” she says. “The only problem is that the freshness does not last very long, because there is no source of water to revive the petals.”If you follow this route, make sure that your florist only does it the day before to prevent the flowers from rotting.

Fluffing the Petals

If your desired flower is not available, Todd recommends taking a similar flower and opening the petals so that it looks like the desired flower. “Each flower blooms in its own way, but fluffing the petals so that they become a lush, open flower is the perfect Alternative,” she says. “An example of this would be Panda anemones, which at first glance look black and white, but the center is actually a very dark navy sapphire.”To perform this Transformation, Todd takes a white Lisianthus, pulls out the middle and takes a sapphire thistle that vaporizes it with a dark Navy flower. “From there, I place the sapphire thistle in the center of the white Lisianthus and stick it on the stem,” she says. “To the average eye, it looks like a Panda anemone.”
