In meeting a couple prior to their ceremony and showing them around the Chapel grounds, I always find that walking into the Flower Shop puts the biggest smile on their face. Even mentioning the flowers being ready gets a lot of brides excited, and in return it gets me super excited as well. I mean, what girl doesn’t love flowers!
Having the Flower Shop on the property is definitely a plus. Not just to see that smile, but also because it allows us to have endless possibilities for custom bouquets that our couples desire to add a personal touch to their ceremony.
A lot of times, it’s a special flower that brings sentimental value to someone’s ceremony; Spider Mums or Tulips that just so happened to be a mother or a grandmother’s favorite flower. It means a lot to a bride when she looks down and has that reminder, knowing that special person is there with her in heart and that she also now created a new tradition – with a beautiful bouquet!
Or maybe it’s just the smallest thing like a ribbon that’s part of a family heirloom and you are now able to use it in your ceremony as well as to tie in your bridal party colors.
I once had a Bride who perfectly matched her bouquet to her dress.
Their Ceremony was for just the two of them, but her Bouquet was definitely one of the most important things to her on her special day and made for a GREAT prop in her Photo Session as well!
I do so often also have many brides that fall in love with trends that they see online in their hours of research for their Las Vegas wedding or when they come across a magazine article as well. Or what about David Tutera? He always keeps me up to date on everything; that wedding wizard!
Recreating a Bouquet of your dreams from a magazine clip or online article is definitely not out of the norm! Maybe that Bouquet is too big, or has a flower in it that you just do not want to have, it’s as simple as sending the picture and a description to your Wedding Planner to get the creative wheels in her head turning to get that bouquet made!
And if ever any of that is just too much jazz for you, go elegant. You’ll never fail! A nice red rose, with a simple pearl pin in the center to give it just enough pizazz.
Or, if pearls are not your thing, how about a gem to bring it a bit more of a contemporary look? You can also look to the beading on your dress and maybe match with that!
I do have a lot of Brides that love to add that little bit of bling!
The options are never-ending for you to customize your wedding just for you, and it’s so much fun to do so with flowers! From a personal touch, a bit of tradition or some modern and glam, the choice is yours!
I love flowers and seeing what our brides request and our florists come up with.
I can’t wait to see yours!
