You've been planning this day ever since you were 5 years old, so make it count! Use your favorite color to accent your dress, shoes, bouquet and invitations. Serve your favorite wine at the reception. Use your favorite flowers to show off your unique flare!
Having a fabulous wedding does not have to bankrupt you or your parents. There are lots of ways to incorporate luxury into your event without going overboard. Spend time looking through books, magazines and websites for photos of floral designs and color schemes that you LOVE. Then, schedule an appointment with several florists. Bring all of your visual aids to your consultations and ask each florist to come up with a proposal that is specific to your needs. Choose a florist who listens to your ideas, is knowledgable about the products they offer, and makes you feel confident in their ability to provide exqusite floral designs for your wedding day.
Of course, using seasonal blooms will help to keep costs under control and ensure that your arrangements remain fresh all day. But, you don't have to settle for whatever will be on hand. Ask your florist to incorporate specialty flowers, such as cymbidium or dendrobium orchids into your bouquet. These are available year round and in a variety of colors. Yes, they can be pricey, but when used sparingly they add a touch of elegance and grace. Avoid items such as baby's breath, leather leaf and carnations. These make your arrangements look plain and ordinary. Which is the opposite of what you want on your wedding day!
