Sit Back and Relax
Before you start this exciting adventure of your life, let’s take some time to sit back, relax and get to know each other. I will welcome you with a cup of tea or a nice vintage glass of champagne and we can talk about your big day and discuss your vision and perfect dreams. No rush as we want to get this right.
When you and your partner are planning your dream wedding, one of the first big decisions you’ll make is your theme. Your wedding theme is a good chance to bring your unique style and personality into your wedding. Deciding on a theme will also help you choose everything from your décor, invitations and of course your stunning flowers.
The practice of brides carrying bouquets dates to antiquity. Owens tells us. "Ancient Greeks and Romans, even Egyptians, carried fragrant herbs and spices to ward off bad luck during weddings." The flowers symbolised a new beginning and brought hopes of fertility, happiness, and fidelity.
The tradition of having bridesmaids goes way back to Ancient Roman times — the law at the time required for 10 witnesses at the wedding. This is thought to be the seed that planted the bridal party tradition.
Buttonholes and Corsages
The little flowers worn in the lapel of the men's suits or on ladies dresses at a wedding are known as buttonholes and corsages. Buttonholes are usually worn by the men in the Bridal Party on their left lapel, whilst Corsages are traditionally worn by the prominent female members of the Bridal Party on their right hand side with the flowers pointing downwards.
From quaint chapels in the countryside to towering Catholic Cathedrals, church wedding decor is an elegant way to reflect your wedding theme. Even though a church ceremony is quite traditional, you may be wondering how to uniquely decorate a church for your wedding ceremony. We can discuss this together.
Inside the Church
Finding the right wedding flowers for inside the Church should be at the top of a couple's wedding flower to-do list. This ensures their ceremony has a lovely setting that coordinates well with both the ambiance of the church and with the formality and theme of their wedding.
The Arch of Love
The arch itself is a symbol of the future home the bride and groom will start their family in. Arches in many cultures also suggest initiation and ceremonies of renewal. Walking through an archway represents the sloughing off of the old and moving into a new phase of life.
The venue you pick will determine the number of guests you can invite, your decor, your flowers, your vendor and your wedding date. It has a big impact on your wedding theme, so it's important to get it right by bringing you floral colour scheme with you from the church through to your reception.
Planning your wedding reception décor is a really fun part of your wedding preparation. Your wedding table decorations – from your top table and centre pieces to table runners and even napkin choices – allow you to show off your theme, colour palette and creativity.
