Floral designer Taylor O’Shields, who owns The Place for Flowers, says choosing a mood, a feeling, an emotion that you are trying to elicit is very important when deciding what kinds of flowers and arrangements you want for your wedding or reception. Is your goal to create a traditional atmosphere? Or do you prefer a minimalist look? Do you yearn to feel you’ve stepped back in time with a vintage style? Or would you rather be on the cutting edge?
Long before the wedding, begin to collect pictures of flowers and floral arrangements that you love. Gather samples of colors that you like, either alone or in combination with others. Find photographs of weddings or other environments that have the mood you want to create. Think about all the things in your life that inspire you or make you happy — from music to art to literature to food. Take all of these ideas when you meet with your floral designer. He or she will have a much clearer picture of who you are and what you want and will be able to use those qualities to inspire the perfect floral designs for your wedding.
