Fall Wedding


Q : Hi, my name is Loretta. My fiancé and I are getting married next fall. I have never even been to a wedding before so I am not sure how everything works. I have my dress picked out.. And I know I want myself as well as my brides maids to wear flower head bands. I want mine to have a big sunflower. I know I was my bouquet to have sunflowers incorporated but that’s all I know… I was wondering if you’d be willing to give me some advice. I can show you the wedding dress I bought.
A: Dear Loretta, Thank you for contacting us! We are always happy to share our experiences and advices to the future brides. White and elegant wedding dress can never be a wrong choice! Since you are getting married during the fall what can be more matching than soft yellow and vibrant orange shades in your bridal bouquet! We have noticed that you love sunflowers so we suggest you to chose bridal bouquet filled with this big, bright and happy blooms in combination with orange alstroemeria and a few fall leaves.
We love the idea that you have chosen floral headband instead of classical wedding veil. Floral headbands became very fashionable and you can choose one that matches your colours and style.
Sunflower and its bright yellow absolutely pops up and since you may have bridal bouquet filled with this flowers, we suggest you to choose something more natural and soft for your flower head bands. We really like the second dress but we also think that it will be more inspiring and trendy if you choose a bridesmaid dresses in some other colour. What about bronze, gold or brown tones? There are endless possibilities for combining these warm colours and they will definitely capture the essence of the season.
We are hoping that our advices and ideas will be helpful for you and if you have some more questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!
Have a lovely day!

Hand-tied Bridal Bouquet

Want to create your own bridal bouquet? Just follow our simple steps!

You will need:

  • Flowers of your choice
  • Ribbon
  • Florist tape
  • Pins

Step 1:

When purchasing your flowers make sure that you buy little more than what you might need. Try to arrange flower delivery just one day before your wedding day.

Step 2:

Start with removing all leaves which will help you to pack it easier together. If you want to have nice and round bouquet it’s important that you place each flower in at a 45-degree angle. When you are happy with the finished look secure all stamps with florist tape.

Step 3:

To cover the tape, you should wrap the upper part of the flower stems with colour co-ordinating ribbon. Secure the ribbon with a couple of pins pushed through the ribbon and flower stems. For a perfect touch you might use glass headed or any other decorative pins. If you would like to have a bow, cut the separate piece of ribbon and tight it nicely just beneath the flower heads.

If wedding venue is hidden and it’s not easy to find it, you can guide your guests through the signs or placards along the route.

8.Children at the wedding

Children can bring some magical and unforgettable moments to the wedding ceremony, but on the another side it can turn to a running and messing around. If you are having a lot of children at your wedding, it is good to keep them entertained. In that case, you may consider hiring qualified nannies and set up activity corner in a separate room if possible. If your budget doesn’t allow it, you can ask the venue if there is extra room or separate area which parents can use if their children need some time away from the other guests or they need changing.

Be carful while choosing the food you would like to serve the youngest one. Most of the kids will eat mainly funny food such as mini pizzas, hot-dogs and french fries, so it would be good if you can spare some money aside for their little treat.

9.Memorable Dessert

Make an impression with a spectacular dessert or cake! If you are not wedding cake kind of couple don’t feel obligate to have one at your wedding. Be creative and find your own alternative! We are suggesting cupcakes served in tower form, Candy Bar or Cookie Buffet.

10. Alcohol free drinks

Don’t forget alcohol free drinks at your wedding! Soda or mineral water is a good start but think outside of the box and offer your guests a special summer drink such as home made lemonade, fruit slushies and smoothies.
