5 Biggest Mistakes of Wedding Flowers
Filed under: General
Posted by: Richard @ 5:59 pm

Who loves floral design? We do!

It’s hard to design your wedding décor without thinking about flowers! As much as we love bunting and pom poms, flowers are still the number one romantic way to decorate your wedding. They can magically transform the look and feel of your space, and be used to dress everything from your floor to your table. We also like to be real, so here are 5 tips to consider for your big day.

1. Underestimating the Cost

Many brides tend to focus on other elements of the wedding, such as the venue and the dress, and then have a bit of a shock when it comes time to decorate the space. Centerpieces are just one aspect of décor, and it’s easy to overlook other spaces, such as the entrance, that will look barren if left unattended. Be sure to do your research and share your vision with your florist so that he or she can work with you and help keep your expectations in line with your budget and vice versa.

2. Getting Too Hung Up on Pinterest
It’s great to bring in snapshots that evoke the overall feel of what you’d like to have, but expecting exact replicas of designs can be frustrating for both you and the florist. Don’t forget that these men and women are artists and want to create something unique and special just for you.

3. Being Inflexible
It’s not uncommon for brides to have a favorite flower (like a pink peony), but there are times when the florist can do everything in his or her power and still not be able to get the flower of choice (or as many of them as needed). The bride who has an idea of what she wants with a few options will find the process less stressful than one who refuses to compromise.

4. Using Out-Of-Season Flowers
Seasonal flowers are not only less expensive; they are easier to obtain. many brides run into the problem of floral availability. In other words, the flowers you want at your wedding may not be available during the month of your wedding. An image is provided below with a chart including many popular wedding flowers, as well as “tid bits” of information specific to each flower, such as if it is inexpensive or pricey. Check it out to see if you flower is accessible during the season of your wedding!

5. Choosing Flowers Based Only On Looks
Many flowers, such as lilies, have strong scents on their own, and others have scents that are overpowering when grouped together. Consider all of your senses when designing your wedding.

Do It Yourself Geometric Terrarium
Filed under: DIY Ideas, Home Decor
Posted by: Richard @ 4:25 pm

This is a simple yet elegant do it yourself project that everyone can do! Succulents in our geometric terrarium is a wonderful modern accent for your home. These are really a great indoor planting option for those to want to add a touch of nature. You can add this to your coffee table or give it as a very unique gift.

These nursery tiny worlds can be vibrant and bold, whimsical, or simply natural and unpretentious. Regardless of how and what you use in your terrarium, one thing is for sure…these beautiful mini-gardens are the perfect way to bring the outdoors into your unique space.

Step 1 - Collect Supplies

-Gravel Rocks
-Potting Soil
-Variety Succulents: 2″, 4″
-Moss, pebbles and stones for decoration
-Geometric Terrarium

Put in layer of 1″-2″ of gravel to create a drainage system for your terrarium. This will ensure that your plants live longer.

Put a layer of 2-4″ of succulent potting soil, to create a base for planting.

Take your selected succulents out of their containers, loosening the surrounding soil from the pot.

Remove any dead/brown leaves before planting.

Burrow a small divot in base layer to place in your succulent, compacting with dirt to secure it into place.

You may split apart succulents with multiple stems that are not connected by one root.

When planting is complete, even out the top layer of soil so it is all the same and all plants are secure.

Add in your top dressings such as mood moss, pebbles, stones, sand or crushed glass.

Mix different textures and colors to give it your own unique look.

Note: Place your terrarium in a spot that will get bright indirect light or sunlight.

Water using a spray bottle with filtered water once every week/week and a half.

Breathtaking Reception
Filed under: General
Posted by: Richard @ 4:35 pm

A captivating wedding ceremony for Jennifer and Kyle took place in Houston, Texas and we are happy to feature this newly wed’s fantastic wedding decor! The guests breaths were taken away when they walked into the reception. Guests commented that it is the most jaw dropping and beautiful wedding they have ever seen.

Long tables were dressed with metallic sequined linens over satin tablecloths, while trumpet vases held bursts of white blooms including roses and orchids, as well as curly willow. Low ivory floral arrangements or crystal candelabra adorned round tables clad in champagne linens with circular appliqués. A multitude of votive and floating candles in elegant vessels set all tablescapes aglow. Gold and silver chiavari chairs added another refined element.

Reflecting the site of the nuptials, an illustration of a trumpet and iconic lamppost graced the invitation suite. Jewelry pieces with pearls accented Jen’s ensemble.

The breath taking center pieces are held by our ever so popular trumpet vases. WGV International provides these larger vases with thicker walls so they can support these magnificent flower and branch arrangements. Our trumpet vases held bursts of white blooms including roses, orchids, and curly willow branches.

Sequined tablecloths shimmered in the light cast by numerous candles in our favorite universal cylinder glass vases.

We are pleased to feature this spectacular wedding in Chicago Four Seasons Hotel that took place in August 28, 2015. Melissa and Jeffrey went above and beyond in wedding décor, food, drinks, and even live performances! We are honored to say that our popular centerpiece trumpet glass vase took part of this memorable wedding ceremony. We have a huge selection of perfect wedding centerpieces here

Reflecting warmth and friendship in the details of their stunning black-and-white wedding was of utmost importance to Melissa and Jeffrey. The bride was a vision as she made her debut in an elegantly frothy A-line gown and floor-sweeping flower-trimmed veil. Rhinestones encircled the stems of her cascading bouquet and picked up on the sparkle of her crystal-embellished belt.

Tables were draped in rich ebony linens, while crystal candelabras provided a romantic glow. Abundant arrangements of white roses, orchids, and exotic flowers overflowed from gleaming trumpet vases.
We wish the newly wed a happily ever after!

Flower Submerged Centerpiece
Filed under: DIY Ideas, Customer's Creations
Posted by: Richard @ 4:47 pm

At recent weddings I have attended, I have noticed very similar centerpiece in all of them. Those inspirational centerpieces were three cylinder vases with flowers submerged under water. It was a tad modern but the cherry blossoms in the shot made it feel sweet and perfect for a wedding. I thought it would be fun to recreate this submerged flower centerpiece because the whole put it under water thing means that you don’t need any actual skill to pull this off! Try it for your next party or just as a fun way to pretty up your coffee table!

All you need is:

-Glass Vases
- Cylinder Glass Vase 5″x 8″ - Buy Here
- Cylinder Glass Vase 5″x 10″ - Buy Here
