Creativity, Budget And Flowers

Dec 01, 2020

The use of flowers in a wedding is a given, however, their abundance and how they are featured will depend on the creativity of floral designers and decorators as well as budgets allocated by the soon-to-be-weds.

Trends of the moment :

  • Floral designers and decorators have been of late espousing locally grown flora and fauna, lending some well needed support to local farmers.
  • Combining fresh, dried and artificial flowers to stretch the floral budget.
  • Floral designers and decorators nowadays may offer services that overlap. Whatever the case may be, appoint the one you feel most comfortable with.
