Tips from Your Wedding Specialist

For your ceremony, place the focus on you. Have your florist design two full altarpieces. This places the attention of everyoneís eyes on you. If you choose florals at the guests book table or on the church pews, have your florist be minimal in the design. Finally, have your florist or the ushers transport these church flowers to the reception site, making further use of your florals.
