Quick Floral Wedding Tips

Are looking for some easy wedding tips that are so quick that you can do on your lunch break?  Bank of Memories & Flowers owner Melissa Maas wanted to share these following tips that will help you whittle away at your wedding "to do" list in no time.

Having a hard time picking your wedding colors?  Not sure what flower colors will look best with your bridesmaid dresses? Run to your nearest hardware store and pick up a few paint color swatches.  This will give you a mini inspirational color pallet to work off of. 

Time Line
Just like a busy bride on her wedding day running from her hair appointment to making it on time to her wedding, flowers need a schedule too!  When should the flowers be picked up or delivered?  Who will pin on the flowers?  Who will set up the ceremony and reception? Who will be responsible to clean up all the centerpieces at the end of the night?  Write a time line of when and where you will need your flowers. Check with your florist how they can accommodate and customize where you will need them. 

At Bank of Memories & Flowers we have day of coordinating packages and customized services to help with all the details.

Pin It
Pinterst is a great tool for your florist.  It is a way to gather pictures that inspire you.  Don't get hung up on types of flowers just "pin" color combinations and textures that you love.  Your florist will be able to get a feel of your taste after just a few of your pictures and can guide you on what types of flowers will be in season.

Vender Info
Type up a list of all your venders with contact name and phone numbers on one sheet. Make lots of copies!  This information is great to pass on to all your venders.  They are all connected in some way; like the cake might need to have flowers placed on it, the DJ might need to have a contact at your venue or your photographer needs plan out their route from hotel to church. 

Make a List
Jot down all the people who will need flowers, everyone from Mother of the Bride to your readers.  This will make sure you do not forget anyone during your floral consultation.  Think about your ceremony site, where will you need flowers? At the reception, how many people will be sitting at a table? Have an idea how many tables will you need centerpieces for.
