Silhouettes Wedding Style

A wedding trend that I have been noticing and loving is the use of Silhouettes in wedding decor. And why not? Silhouettes are the new monograms in terms of customization (since they are a portrait of you and your fiance) and the black and white graphic is charming! So if you are looking for a unique detail to add to your wedding, consider a silhouette.

One of my favorite things about The Canterbury Place is that we can work with you to customize every detail of your wedding. So if you are wanting to add a special detail (such as the silhouette), let us know!

Meeting with your Florist

At The Canterbury Place our premier florist is Stacie Hardy. She has given the below tips to getting the most out of your floral consult:

While planning your wedding it is very important that your vendors are able to capture your vision and create something that you will love. Your florist is one of the biggest components in this!
When meeting with your florist, here are some key items that every bride should come prepared with:

  • Color Palette/Theme you want to incorporate in the wedding
  • Your personal style(ie. romantic, traditional, modern, eclectic, whimsical, funky, etc.)
  • Inspiration pictures of flowers you like, whether it is a specific flower or a picture of a bouquet they like
  • How you envision your wedding
  • What flowers you love/hate
  • Style of bouquet that you want: round, hand tied, arm held, asymmetrical, cascading
  • Picture of your Wedding Dress
  • Picture of Bridesmaids Dress
  • Color swatches of Dresses if possible
  • Tux colors
  • Number of people in wedding party:Bridesmaids, Groomsmen, flower girls, ring bearers, parents, grandparents

Remember that your time with your florist is valuable! This is the time to comminuciate your vision. So it is important to have a good idea of how you want your flowers in advance so that you use your meeting time most efficiently.

Of course, florists are there to suggest new and unique ideas that you hadn't even thought of. If you don't know much about flowers- don't worry! A good florist can tell you what will work with your theme/ colors and will have a portfolio and other inspiration items to guide you to the perfect wedding flowers.

To contact our florist Stacie or any of The Canterbury Place staff, please call 801.292.5053

Monochromatic Weddings

A new trend that we have noticed for upcoming weddings is to do a monochromatic color scheme. That way you can choose a color from a palate instead of having to match specific colors. For this monochromatic inspiration board we featured one of our favorite colors for fall and winter weddings- plum. Call your wedding planner to see how you can incorporate both plum and a monochromatic look for your big day!
