Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

For every bride (and her mother), The Knot Book of Wedding Flowers provides an invaluable and inspirational guide for planning a perfect storybook event--be it a private family affair or an all-out bash in a hotel ballroom. Author Carley Roney, editor-in-chief of The Knot online wedding planning site, which has branched out to offer this and other books (like The Knot's Complete Guide to Weddings in the Real World), provides extensive information, friendly advice, and helpful tips for brides of every budget. Special features of the book include beautifully illustrated glossaries of a wide variety of common wedding flowers as well as surveys of the various shapes and styles of bouquets, centerpieces, guest favors, and boutonnieres. How-to sections help the bride decide on her floral style and palette--deep red or purple flowers are popular modern choices, and of course all-white weddings remain perennially popular. Do-it-yourself instructions, clearly illustrated, help brides create their own flower decorations. And even brides with very deep pockets will appreciate the guide to choosing a florist, as well as the timeline planner and sample worksheets at the back of the book. Throughout, 150 glorious color photos seem practically fragrant. --Judy Fireman

This book not only helped me select my wedding flowers, but I've lent it to two brides-to-be and got rave reviews. I even used it as a guide in creating bride and bridesmaid bouquets for my friend's recent wedding (I have to admit that I did have a bit of additional experience prior!). The book goes through each flower alphabetically and tells you when each is in season and their meanings. It also guides its reader by explaining each type of bouquet by shape and includes step by step instructions on how to create a centerpiece, bouquet and boutineer. I highly recommend this book to any bride or amateur floral designer.

If you are looking for some floral tips and arrangement ideas, this book will help you with those ideas. However, if you are looking for an instructional book on how to make arrangements yourself, this book doesn't give enough information on this. (Yes, there is a small section in the book about making them yourself--but does not tell you how to make certain ones shown in the book). I would like a more informational--how-to-make boquet book. I might just have to write one myself!

The first part of the book provides a list of favoured wedding flowers (with photos), and it gives a basic summary on their characteristics, seasonal availability and cost. The second part of the book contains a few DIY tips (not a lot) and a small gallery of centerpiece/bouquet designs, grouped by colors and themes.

The information in this book can be helpful for brides-to-be who are unfamiliar with the names of flowers, or what certain flowers look like. I personally think that the design examples are quite simple and unintimidating (ie. not flashy or over the top), and thus this book will be useful for brides who are looking for inspirations along those lines.

I recommend this book as a preliminary reference and it's a good start before meeting with your florist to discuss wedding flowers.

This book had beautiful pictures of many different flowers. The section with a description and picture of each flower was great.

I was disappointed that it didn't have many pictures of arrangements for a church. Of course, most books and wedding websites don't. If you are looking for centerpiece and bouquet ideas, this is the book for you. But if you need ideas for arrangements for a church ceremony, this isn't where to find them.

There werent enough flower choices, but the ones that were shown were beautiful, and I really enjoyed choosing which flowers I wanted. This book gave me a good idea of what to expect and look for in flowers, and I really appreciated the fact that the meanings of the flowers was included in it. (I even got my fiance to look at it) :0 Great Book!

Love the Knot...and loved this book. Was looking at this for my wife for our wedding. Had a great selection of pictures and helped us with choosing the flowers we wanted to go with on our wedding day. If you are getting married its a great book to have.

I was hoping this book, since it focuses on flowers, would have pictures and small descriptions of most of the flowers a couple might choose for their wedding. However, this book is very limited in that regard. It's as if they settled on the top-seller flowers, put in a photo and description of those, and then threw the rest out. Because of that, this book was not very helpful to me. I went to see the florist a lot less informed then I thought I was, and ended up choosing several flowers that I didn't even know about because they're not in this book.

The pictures are pretty, but way too much was left out for this book to be functional.

I found this book useful in that it was simple, straight forward guide to the most common flowers used in weddings. The first half is essentially a glossary of flowers. It provides basic information that made it easy to compare flowers: photo, meaning, colors available, when in season, and price range. The book also provides information on bouquet styles, color schemes, and flower arrangments, but I found the single flower photos most educational.

This book enabled me to have an intelligent conversation with my florist and narrow down which flowers I wanted for my wedding. I even took it along with me to discuss specific flowers with my florist.

I plan to lend it to all my friends for their wedding planning!
