Professional Expertise For Your Stunning Summer Wedding

summer weddingWe live in a world of mobile apps and online transactions. We like to click a few buttons and get all the information we need. This mentality has crept into all aspects of our lives, and in many ways has made our lives better. But when planning a wedding, the best way to gain information and make decisions is still the old fashioned way. While seeking out the lowest price may seem like a smart way to plan a wedding, it ignores many of the most important aspects of seeing your dream wedding come to life.

When it comes to choosing the right wedding s for your special day, the face-to-face connection with a professional floral designer is an invaluable asset. Leona is one of City Line’s expert wedding consultants and considers her role in the bride’s decision making to be all important. “I think our professional expertise provided during a consultation is the greatest value our designers can provide,” she shares. “It gives us the ability to find out what the bride desires and expects so that we can customize the floral presentations to exceed those expectations.”

Price shopping by bid will not result in vendors striving to exceed your expectations, but to provide only what is requested at the lowest possible price. You will lose professional expertise – which may, in fact, cost you more money! How is that possible? Often a bride will ask for a specific that may be out of season, or very expensive. When a designer understands the bride’s desires, budget, and personality, they are free to make recommendations that will result in the same luxurious look and feel, but at a more affordable price.

Leona believes that great service begins with caring about each bride’s special day, and guiding her to make great floral choices that are right for her on all levels. This is why choosing a florist should be an effort that places an emphasis on service, integrity, and creativity. This choice should not be a purely financial decision, even though the right florist will take budget into consideration. ” My goal as consultant is to allow my brides to custom design their dream s, but with my expertise to guide them along the way. I love my brides. It is important that they are thrilled with their wedding s.”

Leona’s love for her job and her clients is something that the lowest-cost bidder cannot provide. If you are looking for stunning wedding bouquets and arrangements while staying within a budget, your best choice is to stop by City Line Florist to meet Leona or one of our other expert floral designers. Because your wedding s are too important to cut corners.

City Line Florist – Summer Wedding Flowers

summer weddingsCouples love to get married in the summer. Warm weather, sunny blue skies and lazy days make for memorable ceremonies. When a bride and groom choose to have an outdoor event during this time of year – which in Trumbull can mean temperatures into the high 80’s – there are many things to consider to keep things cool throughout the day.

Summer wedding planners may wish to consider ceremonies that occur late afternoon to early evening, when the sun is not so high in the sky. Although it will still be warm, and there will still be plenty of sunlight, it is definitely a cooler time of day. When arranging seating for the ceremony, couples should be aware of the positioning of the sun, and make sure that guests are not looking directing into the sun as it lowers to the horizon.

summer weddingsSome s do better than others in the heat; orchids and roses, as seen in this bridal bouquet, are two of the more popular and hardy hot weather choices. Others include calla lilies, and the fiery celosia and lisianthus blooms.

When planning the details of the day, keep the bright sun of the day in mind. If you will be taking photos earlier in the day, prior to the ceremony, you may wish to have two sets of bouquets – after hours in the heat, s will start wilting, and no one wants to walk down the aisle with a droopy floral arrangement. If you will have s as décor at an outdoor wedding, always make sure that they have plenty of water; like these aisle s arranged in bowls of water. You may wish to appoint someone to refill water once or twice to ensure that your s stay well hydrated.
