Advice & tips for brides-to-be!

jdsakdsToday Chi Tran, Floral Designer from Raindrops on Roses shares some helpful advice and tips for our brides to be…

Work With A Floral Designer Who Has A Passion For What They Do.

As a child, I love watching my parents take care of their flowers and edible garden. Raindrops on Roses Floral Design came into being when I decided to combine work and my passion for flowers. I’m having so much fun and have never looked back!

Q:  What can a bride expect from a consultation with you for her wedding?

A: Weddings are exciting, emotional, and sometimes overwhelming. A wedding floral consultation will allow the bride-to-be to get to know me, and vice versa. Any questions she may have are answered. Based on what we discuss, I can suggest flowers that are suitable for the Bride’s theme, style and budget.  A lot of ideas, and especially pictures (and sometimes fabrics) are exchanged. Afterwards, a proposal is created and includes flower photos, arrangement sample photos; as well as full price breakdown.

Q: How do you help the bride figure out a budget or stick to her budget?

A: A budget discussion is a must-have during the consultation. I help the Bride choose the right flowers to fit within her budget or provide practical ideas on how she can achieve her vision.  If the Bride wishes for certain flowers, then I can suggest how to best use those flowers effectively to maximize its value.  A lot of times, flowers for ceremony (including bouquets) can be reused during reception.

Q: Where does a bride start when it comes to figuring out the bouquet?

A: I would advise them to choose their favourite bouquet pictures found online and then show them to me. While most flowers are available year round, flowers in season are usually bigger, better, more beautiful, as well as more affordable.

All floral arrangements are custom when it comes to wedding. Every bouquet is unique because each flower is unique.  With all kinds of flowers available now, any look can be achieved any time of the year!
