AND NOW FOR THE FLOWERS… WHAT ON EARTH SHALL I CHOOSE?
So what about the flowers?
“So, what’s YOUR style ?
…are you simple ‘Spring Garden’ with fresh greens and whites, twigs and lots of natural English garden flowers? or ‘Vintage’ with deep purple-plum, dark satin reds, bows, candles and lace?
Perhaps you are ‘Quirky’ wanting Gerberas, balloons and a big dose of creativity.
And don’t forget the season. It can feel very different to marry in Spring or Autumn, and worlds apart in Summer or Winter, seasonal flowers work wonderfully to create the right mood. It somehow doesn’t feel right to have daisies near a log fire, or dark winter reds on a wonderful hot summers day.
Go meet your florist in person, let her get to know YOU, she can really help to create the mood for your day, with colours and styles that show YOU off to your best, and stop you making a faux pas when it comes to ‘too fussy’ or ‘just doesn’t go with the dress.’
