Everyone knows that flowers are critical to the beauty and elegance of a wedding, and always remember that flowers will appear forever in your wedding photos, which make them timeless.
Let us give you an example: Deborah McCoy often talks of the photo she has of her mother-in-law’s wedding. The flowers are so magnificent that she often just stares at them in awe. Sumptuous blooms flow from the hands of the bride and her maids like waterfalls.
But this photo conveys a message. One look and you know that this wedding was an elegant affair. the flowers say it all.
So many times, we get email:
Dear AAWP: Is it OK to use silk flowers for my wedding? I’m on a budget.
Answer: Well, you might, but we advise against it. Here’s why:
If you want to save money, use FRESH flowers. They are much less in price than good-quality silks-which usually cost three times more than their fresh counterparts. And take note: You don’t need to use expensive flowers like lilies and stephanotis or gardenias to create an elegant look.
Why even a daisy can look elegant if it’s styled elegantly.
We know that everyone wants to have flowers like the ones featured in the movie Father of the Bride, but how many folks have $30,000 to spend on elegant blooms?
Well, we say that you don’t have to! To get an elegant look when it comes to flowers, you need a florist who will work with you to realize your goals-and one who will work within your budget.
In conclusion: Shop wisely, shop well, put your money in those bridal-party flowers!
Everyone knows that flowers are critical to the beauty and elegance of a wedding and it’s best to note that flowers will appear forever in your wedding photos, which makes them timeless.
Happy Wedding Planning!
