Rehearsal Dinner Flowers

Welcome to our Monthly Wedding Newsletter!

This time of year, preparation is on everyone's mind. The holiday season has just begun, and almost everyone I know is trying to balance planning both a Thanksgiving dinner and the coming frenzy of gift-buying. Those of you who are planning winter weddings must have even more on your mind! This month, we're going to focus on one oft-overlooked aspect of pre-wedding planning: the rehearsal dinner.

Inspired in part by a recent bride's photos of her rehearsal dinner flowers, I want to talk a bit about how to design centerpieces for this oh-so-important evening. She used our Cymbidium Orchids to make arrangements that were both gorgeous and perfectly suited to the event. Individual blossoms were removed from the stems and placed on wicker wreaths, along with assorted seashells and starfish.

While I'm not recommending that you copy her exactly (after all, you want your wedding to be true to your own individual dream), her arrangements are a great example. They weren't too large, too expensive, or too distracting. The rehearsal dinner should be a time for everyone in the wedding party to relax and get to know each other before the big event, so conversation should be more important than decoration.

Choose flowers that are in keeping with your wedding colors, but make sure they're short enough that they won't interrupt conversation, and avoid strongly scented flowers, as their perfume can overpower some foods. If you like the idea of wreaths but don't want to make your own, consider purchasing them pre-decorated. Some of our wreaths are as small as 14 inches in diameter, and would make lovely centerpieces.

Most importantly, keep it simple. Your flowers aren't the main attraction, you are. And as always, please do let me know if you have any questions about flowers or ideas in this newsletter. I'm always happy to answer questions or hear about success with Flowerbud flowers, and I'm constantly on the lookout for new ideas. If you're just starting to plan your wedding, take a look at our Newsletter Archive, where you'll find lots of tips and information.

As always, thanks for your interest in Flowerbud, and have a wonderful holiday season.

Best Wishes,
