A Floral Fantasy

Sep 01, 2018

Flowers play an important role at weddings as they add a sense of romance, provide a visual attraction and afford a subtle scent. Floral designers nowadays are working hand-in-hand with event planners and soon-to-be-wed couples to up the ante on creativity and innovation when it comes to wedding flowers.

Consider the following when searching for a floral designer that fits your bill :

  • Do some scouting around by asking friends for recommendations and keeping a lookout for floral arrangements in hotels, restaurants and the like, that catch your eye.
  • Visit shortlisted floral designers to get a sense of their style and price points.
  • Discuss how much you intend to spend and get an idea of what can be achieved with your budget.
  • Give the floral designer details of the concept of your wedding i.e. attire, venues etc. and then see if their vision meets yours.

Some things to think about :

  • Choosing flowers that are in season will be more cost effective.
  • Unusual and exotic blooms make a statement but will cost more.
  • Floral stands lining the aisle in the banquet venue are dramatic accents.
  • Fruit, pebbles, shells, candles; various items can be coordinated with flowers to create unique arrangements.
