Think about the most memorable events you've seen. What about the best party you've gone to? I'd bet when it comes down to it, they all have something in common. They each reflected their hosts, had stunning details, and made you feel cherished.
Your wedding should be the same.
But how do you do that?
Especially when you can get so caught up in finding a dress, choosing a venue and coordinating the cake, music and photographer that there's just no energy left. But don't give up.
If you put in a little time at the beginning of your planning to search for something outside of the box when it comes to your flowers, the payoff will be big.
So - 3 easy steps to personalization.
1. Decide on a look or theme or vision and let that drive your choices.
Are you Tuscan, or garden party, or classic elegance? Think about what that would LOOK like, and then work with your florist to carry that idea through your flower choices.
2. Choose vessels that reflect your vision.
Think outside of the box here. Stores like Crate & Barrel or Kirkland's or even Big Lots carry vases and lanterns and planters that are reasonably priced and can make a big statement in your venue. Talk with your florist about this. He may have vessels in stock that you'd never thought of and that can really create a cohesive and memorable look.
3. Carry your look through to your site and personal flowers.
Go for the win here - don't stop with just venue tables. Think about how your vision can be translated through candlelight, signage, and personal flowers.
By adding a few details, you can let your guests know without a doubt that this is YOUR wedding - not your cousin's reboot or a Pinterest makeover.
And at the end of the day, that's what it's all about, isn't it?
Beyond walking down that aisle to meet the love of your life, it's about celebrating your love and future through YOUR style.
In your own way, in your own time. Don't settle for someone else's idea of what your wedding should be.
By following these 3 easy steps, you can make your wedding the day you've always dreamed of.
