How would a florist choose the flowers for her own wedding? BrideAccess has a wonderful florist, Elisha at E-Flowers, who was recently married and shared her tips and pictures...
Elisha from E-Flowers shared this with us:
As a florist in the industry, I was recently married and was overwhelmed at the task at hand in choosing flowers for my own wedding. After taking a deep breath I realized, “I am a professional, I can do this!” So, let me share with you the things I learned over the years and in planning my own wedding.
All three of these things will make a HUGE difference in influencing your decisions, not only your floral choices.
3 things you need when planning a wedding...
Vision. There are many choices to make as a bride. The more research you do, the more confusing it sometimes gets! One of the best things you can do when planning is, get organized. Start a book of all of your favorite things. Use magazines, online forums like BrideAccess.com, browse photos on the internet… Wherever you get your information, if you like it: click it, clip it and save it! Once you have gathered enough photos you will realize there are some similarities in the things you have chosen. Now comes the hard part, minimize your choices and choose your vision & color palette.
Venue. When choosing your flowers you will want to pick flowers that will compliment your venue, style and budget. Most often your venue will determine your final date.
Date. The time of the year will affect what types of floral choices you are able to choose and your budget. Spring offers different flowers than Fall! Consult with E-Flowers and they will point you in the right direction!
When meeting with a floral designer please have the following items with you:
Your vision: photos are always helpful!
Venue, date and delivery details
Quantity of items needed
If you need a traditional list of items please contact us.
The better organized you are, the better your results are on one of the best days of your life! All of these tips will help you in meeting with not only your florist, but all of your vendors.
This is how Elisha's wedding turned out!

I am thrilled that Ron from Flying Pig Photography sent me this beautiful wedding so I can share it with all of you. I like how his photography looks like a picture from a magazine- its different and beautiful. My favorite things about this wedding is the southern feel, her amazing dress, and of course the dog- is your dog invited to your wedding?
Ron gave me some of the intimate details...
Aislynn and Hunter were married on July 14, 2012 in Bluffton, South Carolina. The wedding was held at The Chapel At Palmetto Bluff, which is located between Savannah and Hilton Head Island. This waterside chapel is planted on lush green grass, and surrounded by large oak trees with hanging Spanish moss. This small chapel was a perfect wedding location for Aislynn and Hunter, as it was a quaint and intimate location for their marriage. Hunter’s family has quite a fondness and history in the area, and it seemed only fitting that he include his close companion, Bo, into the wedding day. For those who may have just guessed it, yes, I am referring to his marvelous dog. Wedding guests filled the small church with much excitement, and soon thereafter, Hunter and Aislynn were husband and wife! After the ceremony, we all walked around the grounds a bit, and created a few fun and artistic images. The wedding reception was held at Windows On The Waterway by Celebrations Events, on Hilton Head Island where guests enjoyed live music, great food, and chatting with family and friends. It was a casual atmosphere, where everyone was just enjoying the moment, while celebrating with the bride and groom. Hunter, Aislynn, and I created a few more romantic images featuring the magnificent sunset and marina behind Windows On The Waterway. Then, after a quick tossing of the bride’s bouquet, Aislynn and Hunter rushed through a shower of rose pedals to be quickly swept away by limousine into the Carolina coast night!
