Have you ever worked with someone who is a craftsmen? Someone who knows his or her trade so well, that it is second nature?
Believe it or not, a Florist is just this!
Florists have a trained eye. I envy it every wedding day! They see beauty in arrangements I would never think of. They take painstaking care to provide a living work of art for your wedding day!
The Bouquet is the center of attention in the wedding flower world. It will be what people see first, what it looks like sets the tone for the day and can compliment your color choices! This is the one piece I encourage brides to not skimp on! A beautiful bouquet will really reflect your personal style!
And while I LOVE a stunning bouquet, with the perfect styling, I don’t want it to overtake the importance of what your florist can do.
When dreaming of your wedding, think of the overall asthetic. Do you want boho chic? Rustic? Contemporary? Mid-Century Modern…oh wait now I’m talking about styling a home…
Altho, when you really think about it, styling your Reception can feel like styling a home! You need to choose the “theme” or “tone” you wish to convey. Then you move forward according to these parameters. Let your florist in on your dream, see what he/she can do with that! And don’t be surprised if they come to you with exactly what you hoped for! We live in the day and age where dreams come true! The Wedding industry is filled with incredibly talented artists, and florists are no exception!
TIP: Working on a budget?
Splurge on the bouquet! I promise you won’t regret it! It will add so much to your images! And your florist will more than likely be willing to send a few loose florals for your photographer (ME!) to use to style your details and bring a little more texture and take your images to the next level!
