Reception FlowersCeremony FlowersI meet with brides day in and day out, so if there is a bridal question out there I bet I know the answer, or I know how to get the answer! Now, if you don’t know where to start, have no fear.

Here are answers to the questions I get most regularly.

  1. I’m on a budget. How can I make a large floral impact at the ceremony and reception?
    One way to get a lot of bang out of your wedding flowers is to “re-use” the ceremony flowers at the reception. A large formal floral arrangement at the altar looks festive at the reception . We can transfer the ceremony flowers to the reception for you. It’s a service we offer that brides rarely pass up.Bridal Bouquet and Mother of the Bride Bouquet
  2. What can I do different for my mother other than the traditional pin-on corsage?
    Mom’s today are hip and want to be different from their mothers. Consider a trendy floral accessory. Rings with dendrobium blooms, bracelets or hair accessories made of flowers or even a small bouquet to carry down the aisle (like the mother of the bride shown here) are stylish alternatives.
  3. What if I want to do the arrangements myself? Can I buy flowers in bunches?
    Cake FlowersAt my shop, we provide a program where we offer flowers by the bunch. It’s an easy way to keep within your budget and you can showcase your own floral designing skills. Ask your florist what your options are.
  4. What do the bridesmaids and I do with our bouquets during the reception?
    The bouquets can decorate your tables or the cake table. We can place vases at each of your settings or on the cake table for the bouquets. Another option is to lay the bouquets around the wedding cake.Bridal Bouquet
  5. How can I make my bouquet different and special to me?
    We can personalize your bouquet by adding your special mementos — family brooches, vintage wedding veils or special flowers — into its design. Your mementos make your bouquet “uniquely you.”
