Want help with decisions for designing the wedding reception table-scapes? So often clients fail to bring in the flower designer at this stage of the wedding planning and it's unfortunate. If ever there was a time to coordinate the flowers, china, linens, chairs it is early on, not after the details have been finalized.
Let your flower designer assist with suggestions on how to achieve the look or vision that you have for the wedding day. Discuss the "mood', what color should be dominant or which color should be used only as an accent. Is the wedding style romantic, vintage, rustic, or modern? Don't forget the wedding venue itself when considering these decisions. Is the wedding a Vermont destination mountainside or to be held inside in an elegant ballroom.
If you've opted for a buffet at the wedding you might consider a plated salad on the table using a square plate. This simple appetizing plate can bring life to the table and if fruits or vegetables are included in the wedding centerpiece you'll have a great combination; colorful, fun & interesting!
The flower container for the wedding centerpiece should either make a statement or if budget is a concern ~ let it fall under the radar. Go with a "non-container" and put the emphasis on having more wedding flowers in the arrangement.
Candles are usually a must on the list. After 25 wedding seasons involved in designing wedding flowers I have amassed a wonderful inventory of candles in all shapes, sizes, colors and styles.These can be rented resulting in a great savings.
Coloe is one of my design strong points. As a designer the use of color in combination- complementary or contrasting or as a monochromatic statement, done correctly takes years of experience. I urge you to use this experience from your seasoned designer to benefit the outcome....a beautiful, creative, personal wedding table-scape!
