Important Steps to Take Before Meeting with Your Future Florist/Designer!

Friday, August 10th, 2018

Are you and your partner currently looking into a florist for your big wedding or event?

Here are four important steps you should take beforehand in order to have a successful and smooth relationship with your future florist!

First, it is always a great idea to have your date picked out! Timing is everything in the floral world! The season and month of your event date can greatly determine the type of wedding or event you and your partner are envisioning! (And of course we help bring those visions to life!)

Second, it is important to have your venue picked out! This is essential to know, because it will help visualize the type of flowers and designs you want at your wedding. Decide if you want an indoor and outdoor wedding, or both! This will be crucial to know in advance.

Third, the amount of guests! Are you thinking of a small or big wedding/event? The amount of guests you have will play a significant role in determining how many center pieces you want per guest table.

The fourth and final step would be to bring some pictures of designs, floral arrangements that have truly caught your eye! For your first consultation meeting, bring some magazines, Pinterest ideas, past weddings or events you have loved. This will help determine your color theme, yes to gold candles, no to silver candles, etc! Lets get busy!

Feel free to give our studio a call if you have any questions or some inspiring ideas! We look forward to hearing from you!

It’s all about the Cake Décor!

Happy Wednesday my fellow Chicagoans!

Are you still deciding on the type of  décor you want on your wedding cake?!

Well, we’ve got some inspirational pictures for you to help you make up your mind! Deciding how many tiers you want on your wedding cake is one thing, but deciding on the décor of the cake is the real question.

It’s always best to go with the color theme of your wedding. Lets say you are using Burgundy Dahlias, White Roses, and a ton of greenery in your bouquet as well as in your center pieces for your guest tables, you should use those similar blooms for your wedding cake!

If your wedding cake already comes with a little bit of design to it, all it will need are a couple of flowers (same ones used in your wedding décor, of course!) courtesy of Exquisite Designs!

Below are some sample pictures of wedding cakes we have been so honored to help decorate! If you have any questions, feel free to call our studio!
