Great information from a fellow florist!

Wedding Style

Take it from a florist, picking out the perfect flowers is almost as hard as finding the perfect husband.  Almost.  Here are some Do’s and Don’t’s to make it easier for you and a lot less stressful:

DO     Go with your gut.  Above all else, budget, location, everything…chose a florist that you get along with and your gut tells you is the right one.  This process is so visual, and usually those visions are in your head (or ours).  That “vibe” must be present so the idea is communicated correctly and your vision becomes a reality.

DON’T     Hide your budget.  The sky is the limit when it comes to flowers, and a great florist can create amazing florals for any budget.  Be honest and upfront about your budget.

Jessie and Will

Jessie and Will were married on Friday, September 21, 2012 at The Millstone at Adams Pond (what a neat venue)! Jessie and Will were so easy going and it was a pleasure to be their wedding florist!

Jessie carried a bouquet of all white flowers that included roses and hydrangeas. The bridesmaids wore gorgeous navy blue dresses and carried bouquets of yellow flowers that included roses, alstroemeria, lilies, craspedia and solidago.

Will wore a white rose boutonniere and the groomsmen’s boutonnieres were made with craspedia. We made corsages for the Mothers and Grandmothers with yellow roses. There were three adorable flower girls and they carried yellow kissing balls! 

Red Apple Tree Photography did a fantastic job capturing their special day and I have included some of their awesome photos. Enjoy!

The 2013 Color of the Year goes to….

Pantone, “the worldwide standard for color communication and inspiration since 1963” has named “Emerald”  the color of the year for 2013. It is a lovely color and I am excited to see it used in upcoming weddings! There are so many color options for flowers that coordinate with Emerald. Orange, peach or yellow quickly come to mind but shades of pink would be really pretty too! All white would really stand out against Emerald colored dresses as well! Oh my, there are so many different directions you can go! Tell me, what do you think of the color Emerald? What color flowers would you pair with it?
