I was excited to read all of your responses when I told you about using online floral services—it sounds like you are just about as excited as I was to learn that something like this exists! Before we signed on the bottom line,http://www.599222.info/www_599222_com/201503/30.html, I had a consultation phone call with Amy from Flower Moxie to make sure she was able to bring my floral visions to life. Amy’s signature designs were what sucked me in—she was clearly a talented florist with a knack for many different styles. However, none of these styles were exactly what I had pictured, so we decided to go for a custom design.
My consultation started with forwarding some inspiration photos to Amy. She asked me to send along my Pinterest board or inspiration pics via email. I’m not sure if this made it harder or easier on her,168现场开奖, but I only sent her these two photos.

I made clear to Amy from the get-go that I was looking to recreate the overall feel and texture of these arrangements, as well as general color scheme,http://www.km5555.info/www_km5555_com/201503/30.html, but I was not tied to including these exact varieties. I love the mixed up, wild & free, natural look to these arrangements—that’s what I wanted to recreate.
Sticking with our overall color scheme of coral, peach,http://www.37899.info/www_37899_com/201503/32.html,http://www.47492.info/47492_com/201503/16.html, white, and green, Amy began to identify the flowers in my inspiration and talk about similar options at various price points. During our phone call, Amy had me sit at my laptop and Google or Pinterest search for floral varieties she suggested with which I was not already familiar. One money-saving technique she suggested was using a few pricier “focal blooms” in my bridal bouquet and more economical choices in the bridal-party bouquets and centerpieces.
The “recipe” for my bridal bouquet that we came up with is coral charm peonies and peach ranunculus (these are the focal blooms), white spray roses, white stock, eucalyptus (both seeded and silver dollar), and white hypericum berries. Don’t speak florist? Here you go:
The bridesmaids will have more white and less coral and peach. We will also incorporate white football mums into their bouquets—one of Amy’s favorite “budget blooms.” According to Amy, football mums are big and ruffly and always in season—they fill a lot of space, the have a fluffy, natural look, and they are cheap! Consulting with our florist and taking full advantage of her expertise and knowledge is definitely a huge benefit of going with Flower Moxie over purchasing wholesale flowers.
Our centerpieces will have a similar feel and color scheme as the bouquets,http://www.233119.info/www_233119_com/201503/28.html, with silver and seeded eucalyptus, cream hydrangea,http://www.998994.info/www_998994_com/201503/31.html, peach stock, coral roses, Queen Anne’s lace, coral peonies, and lots of greenery. One detail about DIY florals is that you have to rent or purchase your own vases or other vessels for your centerpieces. I will share our plan for this soon!
