The Importance of Wedding Flowers
Wedding flowers are one of the most important elements of your big day. Not only do they provide colour and scent, but they symbolize life, growth, and rebirth. Behind the dresses, wedding flowers are also a conversation starter and create a definite atmosphere.
Getting Your Florist Right
I understand the importance of your wedding day and getting the flowers just right. My small business allows for a very personal interaction so that you never have to compete with large numbers of other clients and colliding dates. In creating your wedding flowers—I seek to enhance the natural beauty of the flowers themselves; designing the total impression rather than focusing on the flowers alone. This attention makes for a day in which the flowers compliment you and your dress and creates a wedding and reception environment which is harmonious and unique to your personality; one which you and your guests will not only talk about, but remember forever.
When to Book
This depends on how long you have to plan your wedding, but a general guideline is to start talking to me about 4 to 8 months before your wedding. The more time we have, the more time we have to get your desired result.
What You’ll Need Before You Book
You’ll need to have booked your ceremony site, and know how many arrangements you’ll need to decorate it.
You’ll need to have booked your reception site, and know the prominent colors of the venue (so the flowers don’t clash).
If you are doing floral centerpieces, you’ll need to know approximately how many wedding guests you are having, and thus how many centerpieces you’ll need. Generally reception tables seat 8-12people.
How many bridesmaids you are having, and the color of their dresses.
The number of corsages (for mothers, grandmothers,announcers and other special guests) and boutonnieres (for the groom, groomsmen, ushers, and or other special guests).
If you’ll need separate arrangements for the rehearsal dinner, post-wedding brunch, entry ways, bathrooms, gift or cake tables, Obviously, if some of these details aren’t finely tuned, it’s not the end of the world. You can come and get inspiration and this may help you finalize these plans.
