AussieJax’ Top Tips for Weddings / Civil Partnerships1.DRESS BEFORE FLOWERS- it is always best to design your flowers to compliment your dress. The style and colour of your wedding dress would determine the style of flowers to best suit. 2. HAVE YOUR VENUE BOOKED- this way you can talk to your florist about possible ways to decorate the venue also. Different venues have different styles/settings/themes. The venue could be the start of a theme to carry out through the whole of the wedding. This will also mean you will have a definite date for your wedding, which you will need for placing orders with wedding suppliers.3. GET SOME IDEAS- Have a look on line or at magazines! Take some cuttings, draw some pictures, have a swatch of material. You don't have to have a whole scrapbook full of things, but it would be good to have something to use as a base to start designing your flowers. It could be a picture of a flower, a colour, a shape of a bouquet you like - it could even be a picture that could set a theme for your wedding. Whatever it is you like about something you see - make a note of it! 4. COLOUR- Peoples perception of colour are very different. What you would call a particular colour, somebody else may call it something different. Get something to match the colour of your wedding. It could be a piece of ribbon, material or could even be a paint chart from a DIY store. Whatever it is - have about 5/6 samples. Give one to your florist, your cake maker, whoever is helping with dresses or people who are decorating your venue! If everyone helping with your wedding has a colour to keep and work by - you are more likely to have everything matching for on the day!5. CHECK OUT YOUR FLORIST- Do they have qualifications? Are they experienced in weddings? Do they have pictures of their work for you to see? Check things out before you commit! Do they have any testimonials from past brides? Make sure you are happy with everything! Every part of your wedding needs to be perfect and you need to be able to trust and put confidence into a trade that they will deliver, whatever they are booked for, for your special day!
