We asked local florist Annabel Grange how you can wow your guests: Image 1 Q - I’m planning to tie the knot next year and want flowers that will wow our guests. Do you have any ideas?

"Go for big or exotic flowers to create the wow factor. Larger blooms tend to be more expensive, but keep in mind you don’t need as many of them to create a striking arrangement. Hydrangeas are good for large reception spaces and come in an array of colours including white, pale blue, pink, purple and green. Displayed in tall martini vases with some roses or gypsophila is a fairly simple design that will draw your guests’ attention.

"Use cylinder vases in a variety of sizes to create an interesting table centre. Fill the vases with water, submerge the flowers and place floating candles on top. Place them on large mirror plates surrounded by tea lights in glass votive holders with table crystals. This is a beautiful option for the darker months.

"If you’re having a Royal blue theme, use dyed fresh roses. These will make a dramatic bridal bouquet, especially against an ivory dress, or can be used for centrepieces or pedestal flowers mixed with white or yellow. You won’t need to add many of these to create an awe-inspiring look.

"Alternatively, you could look for tall, tropical flowers and greenery – these add a faraway feel and look fabulous on tables."
