Understanding the Importance of Venue Selection First
Our primary advice for couples is to exercise patience. Before diving into the specifics of your floral design, it’s crucial to select your wedding venue. The venue plays a pivotal role in shaping the overall theme and ambiance of your big day. It’s a bit like house hunting – you might have an idea of what you want, but it’s not until you step into a place that you truly feel it’s right for you.
Once you’ve found that perfect venue, your previously created mood board – filled with colors, inspirational images, and items that hold personal significance – will suddenly take on new life. You’ll be able to visualize how your chosen color scheme and elements will integrate into the venue, setting the stage for a beautiful and cohesive celebration.
Key Questions Your Wedding Florist Will Ask
At Ohana Designs, we believe in creating floral arrangements that deeply resonate with our couples. To achieve this, we’ll ask you a few important questions:
- Do you have any meaningful flowers? Often, without realizing it, we associate certain flowers with cherished memories or loved ones. These flowers might find a special place in your bridal bouquet, buttonholes, or ceremony decor, adding a layer of personal significance to your wedding.
- Can you provide inspirational pictures? This helps us understand your style preference, whether it’s relaxed, contemporary, or modern. Don’t worry if the images don’t match your color theme exactly; they serve as a creative guide.
- How will your wedding day unfold? Understanding the flow from the ceremony to the reception and into the evening allows us to design floral arrangements that enhance each part of your celebration.
- What are your preferences for table centerpieces? This involves decisions about the height and style of the arrangements, ensuring they complement the overall setting and guest experience.
Preparing for Your Meeting with the Wedding Florist
When you’re ready to meet with us, it’s helpful to bring along certain information:
- The schedule of your wedding day, including ceremony and reception timings.
- Details about your venue’s policies, such as whether they allow real candles.
- Your mood board or pictures that have inspired you.
- Samples of your color scheme.
The Final Piece of Advice: Don’t Stress Over Details
One of the most important things to remember when meeting with your wedding florist is not to worry about lacking knowledge of specific flower names or types. What truly matters is your vision, your preferred colors, and the images that inspire you. At Ohana Designs, our expertise lies in translating your vision into a floral reality that’s uniquely yours.
In summary, the best time to start planning your wedding flowers is after you’ve selected your venue. This approach ensures that your floral designs beautifully complement the setting and theme of your wedding. Remember, your wedding is a reflection of your love story, and at Ohana Designs, we’re here to make every floral detail contribute to the magic of your special day.
