As such, weddings are usually meticulously planned right down to the last detail to ensure nothing will go wrong on the day. One of the most important factors of such preparations for the bride- to-be is to pick her dress and the bridesmaids’. This can take weeks of searching, comparing options, discussing choices with all concerned and fittings – until the final dream choice is made.

They not only have to be beautiful, they need to be matched to the overall colour scheme of things. No bride on the planet would wish for her or her bridesmaids’ bouquets to clash with the dresses for starters. One of the decisions to be made is whether to order bouquets to be made professionally or create them at home, an option many brides go for. Creating beautiful homemade bouquets is not as challenging as it may seem, and it is possible to find many helpful hints and tips in a variety of places. The next question is whether to stick to one particular type of flower or create a mixed bouquet including different colours, fillers and other embellishments such as ribbons and bows. Creating mixed bouquets will naturally mean having to decide what will be the best combination of flowers to use, how many of each there should be to achieve maximum effect and how much green or white should be involved. Some brides may also wish to include particular flowers or fillers because of their symbolism. Baby’s breath, for instance, provides a mass of small white flower heads – perfect as a filler and symbolises everlasting love. Including greenish white, Bells of Ireland, meanwhile, will promise good luck, as will white carnations. Fern would add a touch of sincerity, while Ivy suggests fidelity and friendship. Myrtle is a symbol of love and marriage and Stephanotis, which has small star-shaped white flowers, is supposed to bring happiness in marriage. White lilies symbolise purity and orchids speak of love, beauty and refinement. Red and white roses are a symbol of unity and togetherness. All this goes to show that yes, there is every reason to take some time and carefully consider all the options that present themselves when deciding on wedding flowers and bouquets. Getting it right will mean all smiles on the special day, with everything matching and the bride walking happily and beautifully down the aisle. Other major decisions will continue having to be made by the happy couple from now on. Once settled into their life together, they may, for instance, wish to take a look at some easy access accounts to manage their finances easier.

pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API Be clear on your budget We always ask about your budget at the very first meeting, as it’s extremely important to agree on how much we are working with before starting on the design concept. We will then try to accommodate the design agreed upon within that budget, and when the proposal is accepted, we stick firmly to the budget unless any further additions are requested by you. The Season Try to take seasonality into account when deciding on your wedding flowers, and pick varieties that will be at the height of their season around the date of your wedding. This way, you will find that the flowers will be particularly stunning and fresh, and your budget will stretch that little bit further. The time of year can also help set your theme. For example, spring brides could go for foliage, bulbs and sprouting twigs for a fresh country feel. Those having a summer wedding might decide to go for a generous herbaceous border flowers mixed with lush green grasses. In autumn, we would suggest seed heads, fruits, twigs and hot, spicy vibrant colours. And in winter, look for sumptuous flowers in deeps colours such as crimson and violet. The Theme Take time to identify the central, personal theme of your wedding, as this can shape the decorative style of the whole day. For some brides, their theme may be a colour, a piece of music or a season, while for others it may be a love of fairy lights or perhaps jewellery. Once the bride has found her theme, it is very inspiring for the florist, who can then biggest design concepts to reflect the ideas and create truly wonderful displays that will remain in the memory of the couple and their wedding guests for ever. You Finally, it’s important that the flowers and shaded you choose work with your hair, colour, skin tone and bridal make-up. Think of your bouquet as an accessory, and choose it as you would a handbag or a pair of shoes. If you’re unsure, consider paying for two or three different sample designs and practise holding them to see which weight, style and colour you prefer.

The Aisle Style

The floral designers at Todich Floral Design will give you hints and tips for areas you may not have been considered, for example why not decorate the entrance to your venue?, Traditional floral arches, such as a stunning mix of lilies, roses, orchids, hydrangeas, leather leaf, chrysanthemums and aspidistra leaves are a wonderful way to welcome your guests. The same impact can be made with large pedestal arrangements at either side of your venue entrance. The impressive displays can contain any flowers you wish and it is always a cheaper and better to choose flowers in season. Why don’t you add a sense of gravitas to the occasion? If you’re working to a small budget, a hanging arrangement may be best for you, cascading orchids, scented lilies and beautiful dainty roses would be an eye-catching display for you and your guests. To create an effect with an impact with a significantly lower cost, then it would be a great idea to reduce the sequence of displays at the table centres. Including some colour to your ceremony room, church or synagogue by adding small floral displays to pew ends or to the first chair in each row can create a wow factor!, why not include trailing posies of fragrant Singapore orchids and roses to just a few chairs lining the aisle. And, of course, the classic way to decorate any ceremony room is with an eye-catching pedestal. A display of roses, guilder rose, tulips , eucalyptus and ruscus arranged in a church font perfectly complements the venue’s décor, and is bound to have made an impact everyone.

pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API November 15th, 2011 It was only a few years back that the ‘something old’ in the familiar wedding day adage might have meant, at most, a family necklace glimmering above the neckline, or an old piece old fashioned, attire only worn to not cause dismay to certain family members, but in the last year a sea of change has taken place, with more and more brides choosing to reject the new and instead rediscover the charms of pre-loved pieces.it seems the pre-owned fashion Items with a history has definitely made its mark to stay. Vintage has sky rocketed in popularity, the recent royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton unsurprisingly showed the princess wearing a traditional 1950’s style lace dress and holding a simple white bouquet of Lily-of-the-valley, Sweet William, Hyacinth, Ivy and myrtle. The classic craze has certainly flourished within the flower industry. Vintage has definitely set its mark among the brides to be. Todich Floral Design kept with the trend and exhibited at The Wedding Show 2011 in Earls Court with an exquisite display of vintage style pieces, including the infamous Amnesia Roses, Vanda orchids and Scabiosa pods. All of which caught the eyes of the happy couples. The Amnesia Rose in-particular have become very popular over the last few years, due to its reliability with flower heads that are always fully open and all year round, it is no wonder that these extraordinary roses are a firm favourite when creating Vintage style wedding flowers. Its unique beige, lavender and green colours tone magnificently with many other flowers, we also find that mixing the roses with soft pinks and whites also create a dramatic effect. Quite often because of their mystifying beauty, Amnesia Roses are used in simple clusters with just foliage to accompany them. By choosing a mixed bouquet of seasonal English flowers with a small amount of foliage running throughout the bouquet you would be able to create a vintage look’. Many brides are dressing the venues with simple designs to create a natural garden appearance.

Maybe you have all the details of your wedding set, but have been looking for that bit of something blue? Well, if you have do not have the colour combinations picked out, give cooler colours a try. You might feel that they are a bit down toned, and lack some festivity. But if you combine your colours and flowers right blue, white and purple tones can be just as exciting as flaming red and orange. Something Blue in Your Bridal Bouquet
pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API Hydrangeas are the best flowers to go for if you are looking for something blue, there are various shades of this flower available, just for blue. Because this colour combination is so held-back, you can go all out with the size of your flowers, and hydrangeas are just that. They are large and abundant and they draw the eye with even the simplest of colours. I find that white roses or lilies complement this flower quite well. They are simple and act as a frame for the frilly hydrangea. I prefer white as it has its own kind of brightness, which makes up for the lack of intense colour. The blue hydrangeas and white flowers will do quite well on their own. However, if your wedding is simple and chiq, you can add more detail to the floral decorations. Wisps of purple freesia will not only make the décor and the bouquet more intricate, it will add some wonderful scent to the ceremony. The foliage in your bouquets and decorations also deserves some special attention, as it will be creating the contrast needed to make those flowers pop! Deep green is the best choice when working with cool and simple colours. Your whites will shine against a dark green backdrop.

However it is important to know that some authorities will not allow flowers in any part of their hospital as the potential for germs breeding in water in unchanged vases is a concern – and also that it all makes extra work for the nurses who could be better used caring for patients. So before sending get well flowers to someone who is ill in hospital, check the local rules. At Flowers24Hours we have other gifts that may be as suitable, if not more so. We recently sent fruit to a man recovering from heart surgery with full approval where a bouquet would have been banned. A preserved rose arrangement may be acceptable, but do ask first.
