HOW TO: Plan Your Pandemic Wedding
Congratulations! He’s finally popped the question and YOU’RE ENGAGED! Now the fun begins…with the extra stress of a pandemic wedding!
We know there are more obstacles than ever to plan your dream day. We are here to help you create your instagram-worth wedding, no matter how intimate.
Before meeting with our floral designer, here are the three things you need to prepare:
1 – Your Budget:
As a general rule, your wedding floweres comprise 12-15% of your total event budget. Whatever your budget may be, we can creat the experience and atmosphere that you’ve always dreamed of, from dramatic floral arches to cake flowers.
2 – Your Checklist:
For the wedding party:
- Bride’s bouquet
- Flowers for Bride’s hair
- Bridesmaids bouquets
- Flower Girl’s wreath or petals
- Groom’s boutonniere
- Groomsmen boutonnieres
- Ring Bearer boutonnieres
- Parents’ & Grandparents’ corsages
For the Ceremony:
- Entryway arrangement
- Guest book arrangement
- Aisle decorations
- Altar or chuppah arrangement
For the Reception:
- Table centerpieces
- Food station arrangements
- Flowers for wedding cake
- Toss bouquet
- Tossing petals for guests
- Getaway car arrangements
3 – Your Pandemic Wedding Vision:
Whatever your budget may be, our experienced floral designers can create the experience and atmosphere that you’ve always dreamed of. The best way to share this vision with your floral designer is something you’ve probably already done – you check this one off of the list.
Create a Pinterest board! Pictures are worth a thousand words. If you have a dream bouquet or a favorite flower, add this to your board. We also recommend identifying a couple words to describe the vibe or feeling that you want your guests to experience at your wedding. Some of our examples include: vintage, outdoor, spring, bright, intimate, candlelight. Check out some of our Signature Bouquets for some inpiration!
Arriving at your consultation with your list of flowers needed, your flower budget and a vision is all you need! Our experienced wedding floral design team will take care of every detail from your first consultation, personal delivery and on-site set up. Cheers!
