Chilled Out Groom: Wedding Party, Ceremony and Reception flowers

Whilst not the norm, a few Grooms have been my main point of contact for their big day. This particular groom was the most relaxed person, he and I were 30+ emails deep, to arrange the flowers for his special day.

The Colour Palette for this wedding was soft pinks, whites and a pop of lavender. Perfect to brighten up a July Melbourne day.

The couple held their special day at the Mantra Bell City in Preston. Having both the Ceremony and Reception on site. The Ceremony was held in the Marquee whilst the Reception held in the Grand Ballroom.

 

Affordable Ceremony Flowers

For the ceremony my groom choose to have flowers and pillars to frame the alter as well as a signing table arrangement. All of these items were transported up to the ball room entrance after the ceremony for double use. Always a great way to save some money if you can get double usage from your flowers.

Affordable Reception Flowers

For the reception flowers I created hand-tied arrangements using the Mantra’s own vases. This is another good way to keep costs down as you don’t have to pay for vase rental and most large venues already have the right size vase for the tables.

These arrangements were hand-tied like a posy so that at the end of the evening the guests could take them home and continue to enjoy them for several more days. I provided the venue with complimentary wrapping kits, complete with plastic bags to catch the drips and wrapping paper and string to make safe transport of the blooms home.

Wedding Party Table Arrangement

The Groom also wanted something special on the wedding party table and opted for an elongated arrangement full of pink and white blooms to sit in front of the his bride and himself, framing the cake.

All in all it took one month to organise everything over email. I understand that my couples may not want to meet in person and so I’m happy to do the consult over email. But for those future couples who want to meet, I’m always happy to invite you into my home studio to go over everything.

I was stoked to get this comment from my Groom.

Thanks again for being so easy to deal with!

It really makes my day when I have happy clients.

Long distance Love: when an airfare is more important than wedding flowers

Consultations over email are my specialty. I’ll happily meet up or chat on the phone but over email you can go back and forth with ideas, pictures, leaving time to mull over options in between replies.

For this bride it was all over email and we went back and forth several times to find the exact colour / flower combination she was after. One of the flowers she was in love with wasn’t technically in season, but on happy chance my flower wholesaler mentioned he had a grower providing hot house year round Dahlia’s.

I have mentioned before in a previous post, Chilled Out bride, how much I love Dahlia’s and how they are a perfect bloom for the budget conscious bride. So finding out I could get them locally grown all year round was epic…. Dahlia’s for days.

Colour Palette: Pinks, Burgundy and silver tones.

The colour combo for this wedding was perfect for the July weather. Soft and luxurious, pinks, burgundy and silver tones. The extra textural elements of the astible and pivet berry helped bring interest and depth to the bouquets. I’m lucking enough to have a large pivet berry tree in my neighbors yard which conveniently hangs over my fence.

Long Distance Romance: Australia and USA

I wasn’t aware until I made the delivery that the Groom and his family had flown in from overseas. It was a very long distance romance for the couple. Flying family and friends in from USA for a wedding definitely adds up the costs.

All of my quotations include delivery, for Melbourne couples there is no extra delivery charge as I personally deliver each wedding. For couples getting married in the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula, The Dandenongs, Daylesford regions of Victoria I have an additional $50 delivery fee.

The highlight of this wedding was the Groom’s mum wanting a photo of me, with her son and the flowers. Her happiness was bursting at the seams and such a delight. I wish my couple a very happy ever after on the same continent wherever that maybe.
