Why are we speaking about the holidays in July? According to industry experts, now is the time to get serious about putting all the elements of your holiday wedding in place. Jennifer Lorenzo of Trias Flowers suggests “I recommend planning early – at least 8 months in advance when planning a November – January event. The holidays are a busy time, not just for weddings, but also for corporate and social events.” This means that you may be competing for venues and resources in that busy season, so by the summer months, crucial aspects of your day should be in place to ensure you get what you want.
In regards your wedding flowers, the summer months are also the perfect time to decide on the details of a holiday-wedding. Jennifer suggests that focusing on a holiday color palette rather than a specific flower is the smartest way to go, since different flowers are available at different times of the year. Even though we don’t experience snowy winters here in Miami, there are a few basic color schemes that perfectly evoke holiday cheer; including white flowers accented with reds or burgundies; or dramatic red blooms. Evergreen, holly berries and pine cones are beautiful natural elements that can be added cost effectively to elevate the holiday spirit, and even to bring a little “winter” to the event.
Metallic details and accents can be beautifully incorporated into your decor to bring your South Florida “Winter Wonderland” to life – from chairs to candlesticks and shiny vases. Crystal baubles on white flowers shimmer like freshly fallen snow; silver Christmas ornaments add shine to your tables; and flickering candlelight will give a warm glow reminiscent of a winter fire.
