Wedding Flowers -- Set the Stage and Define Your Style

What is the first thing you notice when you look at a wedding picture? Ok, ok, it might be the wedding dress or the person in it if you know them, but the thing that really catches your eye is the flowers! Having just recently visited the European Flower Shop, the importance of flowers to many brides is fresh in mind. Only then did I realize how much goes into choosing flowers and arrangements to match a wedding. For the day done right with minimal stress, get to know the florist you're working with. Help them imagine your bouquet with you because although they can give you a description, and sometimes a photo, you won't know what your bouquet really looks like until the day of your wedding. Communicate with your florist about the mood you want to set and leave it to them to create a masterpiece! You'll feel much more at ease if you can delegate some wedding day responsibilities to the people helping you along the way. Come the day of your wedding, you want to be able to relax in confidence as the flowers make your wedding unique. They add aroma, color, and personality! Select flowers that create the signature ambience you want at your wedding. They can bring style and joy to what might otherwise be a simple atmosphere and liven up any setting, all while exuding a feeling of elegance and romance which will make any bride happy.

Some of Calluna Events favorite florists include Brighter Day Floral, Plum Sage Flowers, European Flower Shop, Boulder Blooms, Sturtz & Copeland, Bella Fiori Flowers, the Painted Primrose and Delilah's of Denver.
