Checking It Once, Checking It Twice: Floral List for the Bride To Be

Before I schedule any consultation I like to send a pre consultation form to all clients so I get an idea of how to properly format a foundation for when we meet face to face or via Skype. On my pre consultation form are questions asking how many quantities of each arrangement or personal flower will be needed for the big day. Below I’ve come up with a check floral list that may come in handy to have in mind before meeting with your designer.

This venue is not just for weddings but you can also have brunch which is perfect for the newlywed couple the morning after their wedding.

Bold & The Beautiful: Colored Wedding Dresses

Two years ago I wrote a post that featured blue wedding dresses which you can find here, but today I bring to you more colored wedding dresses for those girls who are bold and not afraid of stepping outside the box. 

Most have heard when designing flowers for the bride and her girls that it is quite common to have the bride carrying colored flowers such as red roses and her girls carrying white flowers. What if we take this a step further and have the bride wearing a colored dress and her girls in white? Let’s take a look at my top 3 colored wedding dresses for 2015.
