Summertime Holiday Wedding Plans

holiday weddingWe are in the middle of long, hot summer days, and talking about the holidays seems a little out of place. But if you are planning a holiday wedding, experts say that this the perfect time to select a florist and begin to decide on the s for your special day. But before you assume that all florists can do the job equally, understand that not all florists routinely help to coordinate successful wedding events, or have the experience you will need to stage a wedding during one of the busiest times of the year for events and parties.

Most florists require a few weeks to a month to plan for wedding s, but we say its never too early to start planning especially in the busy season.┬áThis will ensure that not only does she have beautiful s she will love, but that they are appropriate for the season, the venue and her budget. Holiday weddings are considered ones which take place in the period between Thanksgiving weekend and extending through the New Year. This time of year is spectacular for magical, shimmering weddings – but also pose some challenges. Venues, caterers, and florists will all be booked early for these times, so it is imperative that a bride takes care of these decisions early on. Also, because not all s are available in the winter, brainstorming with a professional wedding designer now will allow brides to experiment with alternatives and ideas to make sure the bouquets and arrangements are just as she dreamed.

Choosing true seasonal s- such as poinsettias – is a wonderful way to infuse the spirit of the holidays into your celebration. However, any palette of reds and whites is most popular for winter weddings. Flowers such as red roses, calla lilies, amaryllis work wonderfully, especially paired with winter greenery and evergreen foliage. They are also often accented with metallics, crystals, and shining ornaments. Adding natural details such as holly berries, evergreen boughs, and natural sticks result in a lovely winter centerpiece; add flickering candlelight or a glowing lantern for warmth and ambiance.
