Wedding season in in full swing and we are just preparing for a ‘Midsummer Wedding Fete’ this weekend at the beautiful Falcon Manor in Settle. We are looking to meet the prospective brides, and grooms, and their friends and families who come to gain inspiration and check out the suppliers, to see who they feel they could work with.
We really enjoy these events as there is a natural excitement from the exhibitors who are all really passionate about their products and services, and will have spent weeks planning their displays and coordinating with each other to give an overall cohesive and dramatic effect when the guests arrive.
This weekend we are working with a delicious colour palette of pinks, mauves, purples and peaches which are going to blend themselves (all by themselves of course!) into the most gorgeous collection of bouquets, boutonnieres, tables decorations chair clusters which we’ll display partly on our own stand but also around the venue to give brides and idea of how fresh floral displays can be used and the effect they give.
Our exhibit will be interactive, we’ll have different bouquets for people to hold and see how they feel. A bride might well have a good idea of the type of bouquet she’d like but when you actually get to physically hold one and imagine wearing your dress and holding it throughout the day, it can be really helpful to have had a little practise to see if its comfortable .
Now is the perfect time for brides who are getting married next year to come and have their wedding consultation with us, as we can actually show them the flowers that will be in season at the time of their wedding. This, of course, works a year in advance no matter what the season.
We can also talk trends and discuss what’s ‘in floral fashion’ and predicted trends for the following year. Each month we’re on Stray FM’s ‘homes and gardens’ program as their resident floral expert. Last week it was wedding flowers, so if you’d like to whet your appetite with a few top tips and floral predictions have a listen to the link below where Erica talks weddings and floral trends with Beth from Stray FM.

We look forward to hearing from you xx
