Today’s blog is from New England’s Premiere Floral Boutique, Flou(-e)r. They work with brides to create their one of a kind vision for their wedding and events. They strive to provide Brides with exceptional service and to make this experience as stress free as possible.
Think about how many moments of your wedding day are accented by flowers. Your wedding ceremony venue might be the first view guests will have of your floral vision proceeded by what the wedding party is carrying and then of course what you the bride is carrying. Then incorporating your venue where your vision continues to unfold as guests view what you have chosen to accent the place card table. As they proceed into the reception to find their seat your guests will finally have a full view of your entire floral vision as they are now presented with your table-scapes. Make sure that your
blooms reflect your personal style, so when it is time to choose your floral artist be certain that they have an emotional attachment not only to you, but also to your vision.
When selecting a venue take into account all the elements and how muchdecor you’ll need to add in order to capture and portray your vision. All too often it becomes very easy to fall in love with the exterior grounds and fail to remember the details of the room or vice versa. Think realistically — what will it take for you to enhance the room or outside grounds using additional florals to achieve your vision, how does it relate to your priceline. Further, consider the design for the ceremony space can the florals be repurposed at your reception? It would be wise to include your florist artist when visiting your venue; a true designer has a level of professional experience, which can only compliment your wedding vision.
Envision how the flowers of your bouquet will look against your weddinggown/lehenga, if you have chosen a traditional white gown, then having a vibrant bouquet would look stunning but if your gown has a lot of sparkle or design you may find a monochromatic bouquet a better balance. South Asian bridal bouquets should be simple and are typically white and cream and monochromatic so as not to compete with the bridal lengha, bangles,and kalira that will be colorful and full of details.
Regardless of your venue and decor make sure the day is a direct reflection of you and your soon to be husband. It is so easy to be consumed by the opinions and expectations that surround you while navigating the planning process. Always trust your instincts and do what makes you and your fiancé happy because at the end it’s your day. Remember your actual wedding day will go by so fast, take a few moments during the day to stop and look around and see what all your hardwork has accomplished.
