FLORAL DESIGNER TO FIT YOUR STYLE…
When it comes to planning your wedding day, flowers are a fun and creative way to express your personality and the style you want to remember your wedding by. Often brides look through the internet to get some ideas on what is a trend for their spring, summer or fall weddings.
Because there are so many options out there, just like there are wedding photographers, rather than trying to find someone to do your flowers from the big lot of florists in Austin, try to narrow down your likes and style first.
This will help you decide if you want to go for a retail florist, a floral designer or a Full service event/floral designer. Your wedding day will go by so fast and sometimes it is a great idea to delegate all the responsibilities of your special day to your wedding vendors.
TYPES OF FLORISTS:
- THE RETAIL FLORIST: These are the typical floral stores you see around town. You go in, you purchase your bouquet of flowers and leave. They are ready to help you find what you need for a day like your wedding but might not always be equipped to provide flowers for a full event.
- THE FLORAL DESIGNER: This person will help you decide which works best for your vision, style and budget for your wedding flowers. You are paying this person for her/his creativity, his/her services on the wedding day and the flowers.
- THE FULL SERVICE EVENT/FLORAL DESIGNER: This person is somehow similar to #2 but there is a bigger array of services and products provided. This is a great choice for you when you have an idea you cannot quite execute on your own because of time limitations or just because you are not familiar with the wedding industry. Flowers, table clothes, candles, detailed planning and designing; these are some of the things an event/floral designer will help you with.
NEED MORE INFORMATION ABOUT FLORISTS?
CLICK HERE but remember to ask the florists/floral designers you are meeting with what they need from you before your appointment. They all have different styles, just like us photographers, and we all look for different things to do our job the right way.
The following images are part of a styled shoot I photographed for a wonderful Event/Floral Designer here in Austin, TX. If you are looking for a designer that has elegant and classic, Donovan from DONOVAN DESIGNS is your guy.
