After photographing and being a guest at quite a few weddings over the years, I've come to know that a wedding doesn't NEED to have flowers. I have noticed, however that flowers can add that last little touch of detail to your day without being too extravagant and too expensive.
Honestly, when I was getting married I was under the mindset that flowers weren't necessary and more of a "splurge" item. And while yes, flowers can be expensive and can be low on a bride's priority list here are a few reasons why I've changed my mind.
#1: A great florist will be able to capture who you are
Elizabeth from Fleur de Liz Weddings captured one of my brides perfectly through her bouquet. The bride loved very earthy, organic products and she wanted it to have a calming feel to add to her day. She also didn't want it to be too traditional so this is what Elizabeth designed. Beautiful right?!
#2: That little pop of color in your photos is always stunning
Take these orchids into consideration! A very simple arrangement, but it just speaks to the excitement and energy this couple exuded together. It was perfect for them and obviously made their photos pop!
#3: Appeal to your senses :)
I don't know about you, but there are certain smells that always bring me back to a certain memory. My grandfather was a big hunter and lived in South Carolina. He'd always show me his Turkey calls that were made out of cedar. Now that he's passed away I sometimes can go back to those memories when I smell any sort of cedar wood. Much the same, your wedding bouquet can be one of the senses that will help you remember your wedding day for years to come.
#4 An extension of your day
Working with an expert florist who is interested in your details will have the knowledge and expertise to steer you in the right direction. They'll have ideas that will make your day different than any other couple out there and they'll compliment the hard work you've already put into the planning.
So, brides if you're looking for a florist in Colorado I have a few to recommend to you!
