Weddings are expensive. How many times have you heard you ask yourself "HOW much is/are...(insert photography, flowers, invites, food, etc)...going to cost?!" So it is no wonder the most popular question I get asked is, "How do I save money on my wedding flowers and still have a beautiful event?" My two favorite answers to that question are, use high impact colors and interesting details.
Compare this lovely bouquet I designed a couple of years ago in shades of white:

To this bouquet I designed for a Fall wedding with high impact oranges and reds:

Both bouquets are gorgeous, to be sure. But which bouquet leaves a lasting impression? Which bouquet would make you stop and take a second look?
Using flowers in bright colors designed in eye catching combinations means you can use less flowers and arrangements to make an impact at your event.
Compare this centerpiece I designed in light blue, fresh green and white for a Springtime wedding reception:

I designed this classic and traditional arrangement for a wedding reception that took place at a country club in the Spring:

This centerpiece was designed for the same country club setting for a Summer wedding:
Both centerpieces decorated the tables nicely. But if you were a guest at both weddings, which centerpiece would leave a lasting impression in your mind?
Interesting flowers, details, textures and patterns will also add visual excitement to your floral designs. Anytime you add unexpected elements you will leave a memorable impression on your guests.
This bouquet is different and fun because of the flower and ribbon choices. Just the perfect bouquet for the outdoor wedding at a rustic barn for which it was designed.
The centerpiece at this wedding was a large candle surrounded by a ring of Seckle pears and glittered mini- pumpkins. Adding the glitter to the pumpkins upped the novelty factor of this Fall centerpiece.

Using moss pomanders accented with flowers, wire and ribbon made for a different but fun centerpiece.
Using succulents in wedding flowers has been a trend for the last couple of years. I love this look for a couple of reasons. It is a great way to add some unexpected elements to the floral designs and the succulents make a lasting keepsake. After the wedding they can be planted!
