THE VALUE OF FLOWERS
Your average flowers have come so far! I mean literally, they often come from thousands of miles away like Bogota, Columbia or Haarlem, Holland. Even the flowers that we buy from local farmers, or from my own garden have made one heck of a journey. Each flower starts off as
intsy-tintsy seed that is germinated and fawned over for weeks before going out into an equally fawned over field. The process of germination, cultivation and harvest often takes months and years of tender love and care. Once the blooms are ready, they are carefully cut, bunched and transported near and far. Upon arriving in our studio we lovingly cut them up and strip them down. After removing all thorns and foliage the flowers are finally taken down to individual stems ready for arranging. The process of preparing and arranging flowers happens all in the quick days leading up to the special day. It is amazing how much time and effort goes into delivering blooms at the peak of perfection on for one magic moment in time.
The cost of a wedding in general can be surprising, and flowers can easily be overlooked or passed off as trivial. They just die right?! NO! While the flowers will not be fresh forever, they will live on in your photos, your memories and the memories of your guests. A fresh flower installment will breathe life into a venue and provide a totally unique experience for your guests. They can take pictures in front of a floral wall and oogle at the amazing centerpieces. Your bouquet will be at the heart of so many of your pictures, why shouldn't it look as fabulous as you?! Not to mention the scent of certain varieties of flowers. Scents so specific will hold strong in your memory for decades to come. Why not smell those garden roses each year on your anniversary? The memories of kissing your spouse for the first time? Or, anxiously waiting to walk down the aisle? Those moments will flood back to you upon smelling your special blooms.
If you want to get even more value out of your flowers, then consider gifting them to your wedding party, grandmother or favorite charity organization. Some clients have even take their flowers to the cemetery for loved ones that were not able to attend their special day. And if you want longer lasting blooms, then we recommend narrowing down your vision to locally grown flowers, which have not had to undergo shipping and preservation.
