I am going to try my best to make entries into the blog once a week with helpful hints that brides might be able to use to make their wedding more fun, affordable, beautiful and interesting.
Every year around this time I troll the alleys of Livingston and gather large bouquets
of lilacs. If I were to get married again I would plan my wedding during the early spring so I could have lilacs and lily of the valley as my flowers. I come from a family of do it yourselfers
(is that a word?) and sometimes it works and other times it doesn't. For my wedding, 17 years ago, I bought my own flowers the day before my wedding at the market in LA and arranged the flowers myself the morning of my wedding. I have to say I wouldn't recommend the latter part of that plan. My bouquet was too large and it didn't have a 'style' to it. If you do want to save some money in regards to flowers you can choose flowers that are in season because they are more affordable during that time of the year. I would definitely
recommend hiring a professional florist for this. You can choose the style of your flowers and not have to worry about the details on your wedding day. I always recommend that my clients choose vendors who's work they love and who they feel will take care of all of their needs on the wedding day. After all of the hours of planning your wedding celebration you should be able to relax and celebrate all day long!
If you have something that learned from your wedding day please leave a comment for others to see.....
I'll write about my photographer next time.....
