If you getting married this coming Fall, you’ve probably been planning your wedding before all of this craziness with social distancing starting happening! Natural color schemes and rustic gallerings are still very prominent! Backyard garden scapes and rustic barns are still hot. Scaled back greenery and muted golds, peaches, and champagnes…taupe dresses and fabrics to drap the ceremony. Finding looks that include seasonal flowers will keep your cost down. When it comes to flowers for your bridal party and the ceremony framing such as arches, aisle ways, and entrances into the back aisle…DO NOT SKIMP! Repurpose as much as you can when it comes to aisle pieces. It you use mason jars down the aisle, reuse them for the cocktail hour or on the table with candles, etc. If you like the look of garden roses, use them in bridal party flowers and use standard roses throughout the ceremony and reception. They are more costly of a rose and you will appreciate them in the bouquets more when you see your pictures. Deep fall colors will always be something attractive for fall brides. Make sure you find all options for flowers available during the fall season. Locally grown flowers are usually your best option and most Florist will use local if possible. Plan ahead and do your homework! Happy planning!
Heading into the 5th year of business. I’m reminding how amazing it has been to have such a wonderful place to design my flowers. I can’t tell you how simply beautiful of a space it is to work from and how lovely the country side. When I pull up to my front door, its like being on a farm. Deer, chipmunks, squirrels, and even a calf has ran by my studio doors. The couples that I’ve had a pleasure to work with as well as the staff at The Morningside Inn. They have helped to grow my business into the amazing special event florist its blossomed into TODAY! I’m beyond grateful of all the amazing clients that I’ve grown close to along this fabulous journey.
During these unprecidented times…we find ourselves working from home, isolated from our family and friends. With social media at an all time high and Zoom is exploding into the new meeting platform; we search for creative ways to stay connected. I’ve been spending my days reaching out to my couples who are getting married. Rescheduling, consoling, juggling, and trying to prepare for a future thats uncertain in my industry, We are all about social gathering, hugging, dancing, and celebrating. I encourage you to continue to plan your celebrations, weddings, and galas. Use this time wisely to remember whats important in life and give yourselves something to plan and look forward to as well. Family, friends, and safety are key right now. I can’t wait to be a part of the special days of each and everyone of my amazing clients now and in the future.
Even with all the rustic barn venues, I’ve found that brides are seeking family homes as a place to take their vows. With that said, the country and woodsy look is wildly popular. They seem to go hand in hand with the looser and full bouquet. With an occasional bride seeking some pops of color, the pale colors continue to be a favorite, such as ivory, peaches, blushes, and natural soft colored greenery.
