Seek out a florist who has the aesthetic you love...
We were over the moon when Sharon Pointen from Myrtle and the Bee agreed to join the blog this month. Sharon has a wealth of experience when it comes to all things floral. Sharon explains some of the options available when choosing your wedding florals.
“There will be a style you are naturally drawn to then seek out a florist who has the aesthetic you love.”
Hello! I’m so delighted that lovely Jane at Little Pea Designs has invited me along to guest blog and share with you some of the fun things we create in my flower world.
So, you’ve picked the venue and your wedding date is set, now it’s flower time…
There is such a huge array of options when it comes to choosing your wedding flowers, from elaborate exotic blooms to a pretty country garden vibe and anything in between. All have a place and there will be factors that will help you choose a suite of flowers and florist perfect for your wedding.
Take some time, have a look on social media, websites and Pinterest. There will be a style you are naturally drawn to then seek out a florist who has the aesthetic you love.
This is the exciting bit. Together we can start to sift through ideas, and the kind of feeling you want to evoke, perhaps a memory you want to include. I would often suggest at any event or wedding you need something of a focal point.
Most couples love the idea of an arch as it has the fairy-tale feel. The arch itself is a symbol of the future home the bride and groom will start their family in and moving into a new phase of life. Flower arches can be a great way to set a scene welcoming your guests at the entrance of your church, marquee and as a backdrop for the ceremony.
Urns are also a brilliant way to frame an area filled with one type of flower or a mass of foliage’s with a selection of seasonal blooms.
Large vases resting on different levels with candles is a great look. These can then easily be moved to highlight other areas after the ceremony.
I love a suspended display. Flower clouds or hoops are a great way to draw the eye up but also a hanging flower installation can help to create an intimate romantic area.
