Inspiration Board: Beach Wedding

For those of you who don't know, an inspiration board is where you take images from many different weddings or events and put them together and it looks like it all came from the same event. This is a beach inspiration board I made.

Garden Roses vs. Peonies

Since Peonies are really unpredictable, we can never definitely say that we can offer you peonies. No florist can, and if they do you better be wary of that company. We do our best to find them for you, but they are expensive and the weather directly affects the crop of flowers. If we can't get peonies, we use a substitute flower called a Garden Roses. For all intensive purposes, they look almost identical to peonies and they are more reasonably priced. Take a look:


Garden Roses

Of course you can get them in any color you want. The Garden Roses can be just as big as the Peonies and they are absolutely gorgeous. Getting garden roses can some times save you up to $1-3 dollars a stem. That is significant if you need 100+ stems of flowers!

Guest Favor

We have seen this recently at a few weddings we have done and we love the idea! We can actually make these for you! Just buy succulents and place them in a container and there you go, a wonderful guest favor! Succulents are very easy to take care of and they make a great take away.

Quick Tip

One quick tip that I can impart to you all to make your flowers last longer. Make sure there is no debris in the water like leaves or flower particles. That breeds bacteria which kills your flowers. Another tip is to cut your flowers every few days and place them in fresh water.

Cute Guest Book

Our St. Patrick's Bride, Katie, had the cutest guestbook! Guests put their fingerprint on a tree and wrote their name by their finger print. This makes a great keepsake and wall hanging in your house. Take a look:

Thanks to Chris Joriann Photography for the beautiful pictures:

Sugar Flowers vs. Real Flowers

One of the question we ask our initial consultation is would you like cake flowers. Most of the brides that choose us as their Wedding Florist decide to order cake flowers from us. We love when they do, because it saves them money. Typically, we not the cake bakers are the ones who place the real flowers on the cake, so you don't have to worry about an extra charge from the bakers.

Take a look at some of the cakes that we have decorated:
