- Make sure you know the venue. Not every venue suits this kind of decor – does it have high ceilings and structures? If your venue is a barn, restaurant or even a blank canvas marquee with beams and chandeliers already in place, this is ideal.
- Communicate with the venue. To avoid any disappointment, make sure you make it clear what type of arrangements you would like to create and if it is possible.
- Consider time. Make sure you factor into your time schedule the amount of time it will take to organise, prepare and create the arrangements. It is important you liaise with the venue to allow you and/or your florist to access and adequate time to build the floral arrangements in the venue before the wedding or event.
- Another important factor is flowers. Yes, depending on the type of arrangement you are looking to create, you will need flowers and lots of them, so make sure you choose wisely! Are you looking to use fresh or silk, artificial blooms?
- Choose local, in-season blooms to keep the costs under control.
- If you opt for fresh flowers, choose local, in-season and cheaper, durable blooms that will not only keep the costs under control, but last longer. For example, carnations, chrysanthemums, thistles (eryngium).
- Think about the conditions, the room will need to be kept cool or air-conditioned ahead of the guests arriving to stop the flowers from wilting.
