You went away as a happy girlfriend to catch some rays, and came home a fiancée… How exciting!
And now that you’ve shared your happy news with your parents, your siblings, friends, aunties and uncles, acquaintances, the postman, the cashier at the supermarket…. it’s time to start planning.
It’s quite a task, planning a wedding. There are so many elements you have no idea about as a guest, that suddenly gain incredible importance as an engaged couple. Like the length of an aisle, the correct choice of post-ceremony pre-reception drinks, and where to have your guest list registered. Who knew.
But also, there’s the fun stuff, like picking out The Dress, getting all your favourite girls and boys together to help you on the day as your bridesmaids and best men, and of course the flowers.
I may be a little biased on the last point there, being a wedding florist and all, but actually picking a theme and choosing how to express it through the day is fun. And flowers play an important role in that.
Finding a florist who you’re comfortable with, who you trust, and whose style you like is vital. They need to take your collection of ideas, likes, and needs, and transform them into the beautiful arrangements you’ve thought about since playing make-believe in the playground.
I like to get to know you a bit, and find out all about your plans for the day, from venue to food, dresses to music. From there, we build a design scheme together. We can meet in person, or if that’s a little logistically tricky, we can chat via email. You can take a look at some of my past weddings on my website or Facebook . You’ll find some testimonials there too from some of my lovely brides and grooms.
So, why not get in touch, and get some of those ideas down on paper. Or, if you haven’t a clue where to even start, fear not – that’s what I’m here for. We florists love talking flowers, so can put you at ease and get you sorted in a jiffy!
