Host: Like everything else in your wedding, choosing your flowers requires you to be organized. After all, in an average $22,000.00 wedding, you’re going to be spending upward of $1500.00 on the flowers alone.
Rebecca Thus: When you’re going to meet with your florist, you will want to bring your inspiration, pictures of your attire, and possibly swatches of your dress and your bride’s maids dresses, pictures of your location if you already chosen it.
Host: What are the cool new trends out there?
Rebecca Thus: Brides are also loving monochromatic combinations—reds on reds.
Host: Have you ever thought of pink grapefruit, lemons, or champagne grapes as your center piece? Besides saving your money over traditional arrangements, our experts also say, that kind of thinking is just what today’s wedding needs.
Rebecca Thus: You could have beautiful bowls of moss with little tiny ferns growing in them. You the whole antipasto display, the first chorus lay out as your center piece. You could have individual wedding cakes that when you cut your cake, all your guests will cut the cake at the same time.
Center pieces can be anything you’d like from fruits, to flowers, to seasonal gourds, just make sure they are low enough so guest can see all of them. We’ve all been to weddings where we’d have to go like this because we couldn’t see the person across from us.
Host: Here’s great hand, if you are having an outdoor wedding dryer sheets are natural mosquito repellant. Put them on the bridal bouquet to keep the creepers away.
