Hello beautiful bride, we’ve created this wedding floral design process just for you!
Have you been feeling overwhelmed with all the gorgeous images that are out there? Do you know what you want for your wedding, but have a tough time putting it all together? Are you looking for someone to go over all your ideas with you and help you realistically make it happen? As well as designing some breathtaking floral pieces?! If it’s a YES to one of these then let’s set up a meeting!
Hello! We are Alaina & Alyssa and we are so glad you are here! We’ve included lots of information for you to take a look at, but please feel free to email us with any questions. We are here for you and can’t wait to meet you! Our full service floral design travels throughout the Midwest with Alaina serving the St.Louis, MO area and Alyssa taking care of all you Chicago couples. If you are not needing full service please see our A La Carte wedding page.
We want your design process to be purposeful, easy and fun! After a few initial emails, we will set up our first phone/Google Hangout meeting. This is when we will start in with the basics of all the details of your wedding flowers. The time of year, colors, textures and overall feel you want come into play. If you’re familiar with wedding branding that happens here or is expanded upon here!
There will also be lots of flower talk happening! Our main focus will be designs such as your bridal bouquet, all personal flowers, wedding floral arrangements, ceremony & reception décor. Once we have your overall wedding feel confirmed, we start in on the fun! Your blooms will be picked out, ribbons ordered, containers selected and so much more!
We love a unique venue almost as much as pretty flowers. We’ll be happy to accompany you on one of your site visits!
Please note: we are not wedding coordinators, but highly recommend hiring one for your wedding day! They are truly life savers! We do, though, work closely with all your vendors to make sure we are all on the same page with your wedding brand. One of our mottos is “there can’t be over-communication”!
The Love Notes
We love all our sweet past clients so much and are always so thrilled when they leave us such heartfelt love notes. Just couldn’t help ourselves but share a few!
“We can’t thank you enough for the beautiful job you did on our wedding flowers! You went above and beyond what I had imagined and I couldn’t be happier! You have an amazing talent and I’ll recommend you to anyone. We had tons of compliments on the flowers. Thank you for helping make our day!” – Jamie
“I just wanted to thank you again for doing such a wonderful job on the flowers for our wedding! They were so gorgeous and exactly what I wanted. Also, I wanted to let you know how awesome it was to work with you. You helped make our day so special!” – Kelsy
“Alaina was so amazing and easy to work with! I did not know a lot about flowers and all I needed to do was give her a general vision and she created the most beautiful arrangements that fit into this vision. Love her!” – Sarah
PS- we love to blog our amazing real weddings, so if you’d like to see more check out the blog!! Also, love to snap a few photos the day of to share on our Instagram.
Our motto here is “erase the overwhelm”!
That’s exactly what we strive for with each meeting and wedding day. We start out our process with some emails to get to know you better. Since we just take on a limited amount of clients per year, it’s very important to us to make sure we are a lovely fit. Then we work up a proposal for you which lists out all the details of your wedding. As time gets closer to your date, we set up our in person meeting (usually at your venue) to finalize everything!
We try our hardest to make everything you want for you wedding day happen, but are very honest during the planning process. Because of this we only ask for a limited number of inspiration photos that way we keep things purposeful and clearly focused.
Each wedding is a unique moment in time. We believe your design experience should be just that – uniquely you!
Our meetings are very detailed, so we will be chatting a lot during this time! To get the full experience, we suggest setting up a meeting with us as soon as possible. We are here to design what you want, but know we specialize in an organic, natural feel that is very much reminiscent of how blooms grow naturally.
