wedding flowers

Wedding flowers are such a special part of any ‘Big Day’ but at a wedding even more so.

They are there to compliment (not to take over) the style of the day. 

Mags at The Gilded Lily has 20 years experience in helping couples decide just the right blend of colour, flower type, bouquets, buttonholes, guest table displays, etc. These create a subtle yet magical setting for your Big Day as a special memory for you and your guests.

We ALWAYS go the extra mile! We personally plan, create, deliver, set-up and move the church or venue around and even dismantle if needed.

We have a range of ‘props’ for you to borrow (assuming you book us to deliver your flowers), from vases, plinths, urns, stands, to candelabra, glassware, log bases, lanterns, tealights, etc. 

When you choose The Gilded Lily as your north west wedding florist, you’ll enjoy a one-to-one consultation with Margaret at a venue of your choice. Over a cup of tea or coffee (or a glass of wine!), you’ll have a chance to discuss your plans for the wedding, and to express your own ideas about how you’d like things to look. The plans can be spread over several meetings, for as long as it takes for Margaret to have a clear understanding of your vision, and for you to know exactly what to expect from your wedding flowers on the day in terms of flower type, colour, bouquet type, style and price.time, in your home or at your event venue, and to be sure of beautiful results.

bridal
bouquets

The star of the show IS the Bride and as such the bridal bouquet must be exquisite! Constructed from the best flowers available in terms of quality with absolutely NO blemishes.

There are a couple of basic styles to choose from – posy (round hand-tied) to a trailing cascade style which is more traditional.

Personal choice will dictate colour or not. So you need to ask yourself if you want the colour to mirror the overall wedding theme or keep the bridal bouquet quite neutral and incorporate colour in the bridesmaids?

Typically for the main wedding party – these will reflect the bridal / bridesmaids flowers using a selection of individual flowers as used in the bouquets.

Guest Table & Ceremony / Top Table Other Displays –

Now, the sky is the limit! Your budget will dictate what and how many displays you need – as a rule, each Guest Table will typically need something in the centre (assuming a round table) or linear display if a trestle style table.

A word of warning, DON’T OVERPOWER, tables can get very congested with all the crockery, cutlery, glassware, wine bottle, water bottles, favours, etc.

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT

  • Personal flowers – Brides Bouquet, Bridesmaids, Flower Girls, Grooms Buttonhole, Groomsmen’s Buttonholes, Ladies Corsages (Mum’s), Grandmothers etc.
  • Ceremony Displays – If church or venue (bear in mind that most church’s now allow displays to be removed from church to the reception venue & re-used).
  • Reception Displays – Guest Tables / Top Table – Guest tables can be high or low, keep the top table low so that the wedding party is not obscured.
  • Presentation Bouquets – For those special mum’s and or friends who have had a hand in creating your very special day.
