Conformity.Not.So.Much

I’ve been to many weddings. I’ve planned many weddings. I’ve seen the same thing over and over again. Each table has the same centerpiece. All the flowers on each table are exactly the same. So lets change things up a bit…

Instead of doing the same centerpiece on every table, why not go with a color palette of your liking and have a few different flower centerpieces throughout the event. Lets pick green … and create 3 different looks!

Now Lets add a little texture to the event…

So we’ve seen how changing the texture of the centerpieces can bring a little *pow* to the tables. And I can tell you, your guests will be interested in what the other tables have in store for them.

And one other alternative is picking either 2 or 3 colors that work well together and then mixing & matching the tables…This is a little more daring…but is a real eye catcher!

Flowers.Inexpensive.Alternative

Now we all know that flowers are one of the most expensive expenses of a wedding. And as someone who’s absolutely in love with flowers, I know that getting want you want may not always be a possibility. So instead of going the ol’ traditional florist route, why not go online. There are so many wholesale vendors online that you can buy direct from. And there are a few sites out there where you can buy centerpieces & bouquets already made and not as expensive.

If you go with the wholesale flowers route you can order them the night before & have family & friends help you create the centerpieces. Keep them in a cool area and the next day you are all set. It’s not as hard as you may think. If you set your mind to it and have a little bit of help you’ll get tons of satisfaction from knowing that you were the floral designer of your event. Now who wouldn’t want to take that credit?

This company offers quite a range of wedding flowers put together in a box. Packages range from $150-$700. I’ve personally used them for a few of my clients.

This online wholesaler has a few more exotic choices.

Ok, so I’ve given you what I think are two of the better online wholesale flower distributors out there, but what about some of you who don’t want to deal with the work! I have the solution for you…Check out these already pre-made centerpieces! Proflowers gives you options & wedding packages to pick from…
