What to Expect During a Consult

I hope you’re just as excited as we are for your consult! A time where we can collate all your ideas and Pinterest research for your wedding day.

To help you prepare, here are a list of items we’ll be asking you about:

BRIDAL FLOWERS

1.    Bouquets 

Please bring along all your inspirational photos so we get a good sense of the style and colour themes you like. We recommend picking the colour of the bridesmaid’s dresses prior to consulting with us, to assist us with your colour theming.

2. Buttonholes 

Of course, one each for the groom and groomsmen. Don’t forget to ask fathers and grandfathers if they’d like one as well. We make a daintier buttonhole for pageboys to suit their age.

 

 3. Corsages 

We give the option of a pin-on corsage (a more feminine version of a buttonhole) or a wrist corsage. Please ensure to ask mothers and grandmothers what they prefer. A wrist corsage is slightly more expensive but is a better alternative if they plan to wear something delicate e.g lace or sequins.

Wedding Flower Terminology

Planning a wedding is stressful enough without having to figure out the difference between a boutonnière and a buttonhole (hint: there is none), or a trailing and a teardrop bouquet. To simplify things, we’ve created a glossary with all the terms you might hear or read in your research and wedding flower planning.

Our guide is rather extensive, there is no need to remember everything on the list. Often more than not your florist will understand what you mean from a general description. And of course, if you’ve come across a term that’s not on the list please leave a comment and we will define it for you and add it to the list.READ MORE
