As you are reveling in the sunshine, heading to the beach and getting together with friends this summer, it is important to start thinking about holiday flowers, mistletoe and Christmas parties! That may seem strange to you unless you are planning a holiday wedding this year. Couples looking to get married in the winter months, especially around the holiday season, should already be well into the planning process, even if the day seems far away. Wedding coordinators agree that this is the perfect time to speak to your wedding florist – so here are some expert tips to get you going!
Jackie Cinaglia, wedding consultant at Boyd’s Flowers, has this to share. “By the summer preceding a Christmas wedding, the bride should have determined the number of people in her wedding party and have her color scheme solidified.” She suggests helpful inspiration is found when searching through trade publications, Pinterest, and even attending other people’s weddings. “Once the color scheme has been verified, and the venue is booked, it is time to call me,” adds Jackie.
When it comes to winter events, brides should think color palettes and style rather than specific flowers. Many flowers are not available in the winter months, making them more difficult – and thus more expensive – to include. There are also many competing parties and celebrations at that time of year. By bringing in your color and your vision, Boyd’s can help you to experiment with gorgeous alternatives and helpful suggestions borne from years of experience. Not all florists are equal, as Jackie assures her couples. “I will meet any budget, design any style, and deliver any day. Boyd’s Flowers removes all obstacles when it comes to creating your wedding day. We counsel the bride on styles and budget to make dreams come true.”
