Planning a wedding is a complex art, and one of the most delightful yet unpredictable elements is the weather. It’s a whimsical performance of nature that can transform the arrangements for the day. For outdoor festivities, particularly those in the British climate, a ‘Plan B’ for wet weather is not just optional – it’s a necessity. Fleur Provocateur, a leading wedding florist in Dorset, Somerset, and Wiltshire, shares their insights on creating a robust weather floral plan that ensure you get enchanting flowers, whether rain or shine.

Downpour Drama

Rain on your wedding day might be ironic, but it can be a logistical hassle when it comes to floral installations. At Fleur Provocateur, we’ve learned to roll with the showers rather than against them. Our secret? Flexibility and precision timing.

During the planning process, we discuss your ideal outdoor ceremony, along with an equally enchanting indoor alternative. Our weather strategy involves a proactive approach, liaising closely with the client, wedding planner, or coordinator. The critical decision for an indoor or outdoor wedding is usually made the day before, or on the morning of the event, based on the latest weather forecast.

High Winds

The whims of the wind can play havoc with delicate floral creations. At Fleur Provocateur, we take special care to anticipate gusts and gales, ensuring our flowers stand tall rather than tumble.

Weighty matters. Every floral mechanics is meticulously weighted and secured to resist the breeze. Tall arrangements are anchored with weights to keep them steadfast. It’s a balancing act of beauty and practicality.

The Heat is On

An unexpected heatwave can make even the best-laid floral plans wilt under pressure. Our response to soaring temperatures is fluid and adaptive.

When the heat is forecasted to spike, we adjust our flower deliveries and production schedules to work through the cooler morning hours. For larger events, an expanded team works on last-minute pieces to keep them fresher for longer. These adjustments help us beat the heat and ensure that our flowers are at their peak when the first guests arrive.

The Most Beautiful Flowers; Inside or Out

At Fleur Provocateur, we believe the weather should enhance—not hinder—your wedding day. That’s why we’ve developed techniques and strategies to mitigate the impact of the elements on your floral vision. It’s a promise of perfection, rain or shine.

For engaged couples, understanding how your florist navigates the nuances of local weather can provide peace of mind and the confidence to plan your special day with joy. By partnering with a seasoned professional, you can rest assured that your wedding flowers will be as radiant as your love, no matter what the sky decides to do. It’s a celebration of love that’s as enduring as the British weather is unpredictable.
