TURNING YOUR VISION INTO
A CUSTOM DESIGN
Our florists will give you hands-on personal attention. Whether you are looking for vivid accents or a classic look, we’ll create a look beyond compare. Here's a tip: when thinking about your florals vision, start with the "Five S’s" :
SIGHT More than half of all brides select their floral based on color. Most weddings have a few colors that provide a consistent theme throughout all aspects of the decor.
SCENT If appealing scents are what you are after, our designers can help you choose from a variety of fragrant flowers. Tuberose, Gardenia, Roses, Hyacinth, Eucalyptus, Lily of the Valley and Freesia just a few options that boast very pleasant and distinctive scents.
SEASON Whether it is fall, spring, summer or winter, you may want to consider flowers that represent the season. Although most types of flowers are available year round, adding a seasonal element can add a personal touch to the arrangements.
SYMBOLISM For some couples, certain flowers carry serious sentiment and nostalgia like red roses, carnations and daffodils. Let us help you coordinate color with significance.
SNEEZE FACTOR Runny noses and sneezes should be reserved for sick days in bed, not wedding days. Let us know if you or your wedding party have any specific allergies to certain blooms.

STRAIGHT FROM OUR FLORISTS
TIP #1 Have your flowers do double duty. For example, you can use your bouquets as arrangements on the head table. Or you can have your pew decor transferred to the reception to be used as centerpieces.
TIP #2 Consider utilizing fresh fruit, herbs or vegetables in your bouquets and arrangements. These unusual items add a unique touch - and sometimes scent - to your wedding day.
TIP #3 Use the same flowers throughout your entire wedding. For example: if you are using roses, hydrangea and orchids as your personal bouquet flowers, make sure to use them in your centerpieces too. Buying flowers in bulk lets your designer save you money.
TIP #4 Try to incorporate a specific flower or color your mother or grandmother used in her bouquet on her wedding day. This will not only fulfill the "something borrowed" item but it also adds a personal touch to your bouquet.
