For bridal blooms that stand out, follow these tips from Michael Derouin, Director of Floral Design at McArdle’s. 48 Arch Street, 203-661-5600; McArdles.com

TRUST YOUR FLORAL DESIGNER
After discussing your likes and dislikes, turn it over to your designer. “We love our job and enjoy using unique materials,” Derouin says. “Allow your designer the creative freedom to search for the most wonderful materials available to truly make your wedding unique.”

FOLLOW COLOR TRENDS
Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. “We can provide guidance on what color stories best suit seasonal floral availability, and can help you choose accordingly.”

ADD TEXTURE
“Incorporating different textures into a composition achieves depth and interest.”

GO LONG
Trailing and cascading bouquets are back in vogue. “The modern version of this classic is longer than it is wide, which allows for greater movement as the bride walks down the aisle. It also opens up the opportunity to use many different varieties that don’t work as well in round bouquets.”

GO LOCAL
“If you have your heart set on specific flowers, check out their availability before setting your wedding date. It’s always more economical to use materials that are in season.”
