When I began working with Kelley on her very own wedding I knew I wanted to come together to collaborate and not only tell the world more about her and her business. But also to provide brides with a free guide on a few money saving tips for florals and how to gain the most from your wedding floral budget!
This seemed to all line up perfectly since I began my wedding education email list around the same time! Now that her wedding has come and passed I am so excited to share with you these freebie that we worked on together! Wedding florals can be such a fun addition to an already perfect day! But it can begin to feel overwhelming with not knowing where to begin! Click the link below to snag your freebie and scroll down to read more about Kelley, her business and info on your wedding day florals and what to expect!
Q: Tell me a little bit about you and your business
A: I’m so grateful that you’ve asked me to help with this awesome resource guide for Brides! Keleidoscope Custom Florals was created in hope that’s Brides would feel 100% confident with their wedding day florals! My main goal with my work is to customize each creation and each event to meet my clients needs but also to create a one of a kind look that brings their floral visions to life! My main focus is weddings because at this moment in my life I can 100% relate! However, Keleidoscope caters to all events, not just weddings. I also love a good collaboration so I’m always working with other vendors to customize photo shoots such as Brooke Michelle Boudoir!
Q: When do you recommend couples should typically begin looking for their florist?
A: Rule of thumb: get your wedding colors first then contact your florist. I would say contacting your desired florist within a year from your wedding date is your best bet! To ensure that your preferred florist understands your vision and 100% delivers you should have a good idea of what your personal vision is. However, if you have a florist in mind that you love definitely contact them and let them know you want them for your wedding so you can secure that date with them! Just to clarify, the florist is the creative eye but it helps if you let them know what you do want and what you definitely don’t like. They can take it from there!
Q: What are a few things couples should ask their florist that you think are key elements to know when planning their wedding day?
A: First two things a couple should ask a florist is if their date is still available and if they require a minimum floral budget. Every florist is different, but a lot of times you’ll find that wedding florists have a minimum…it is key to know this before you get too far in the brainstorming process.
Also, look at the florist website and social media outlets (Instagram and Facebook), see if you like their style. If you don’t see a certain style that matches your vision that’s fine, doesn’t mean they can’t do it. Show them a shot you found off Pinterest and message them with that attachment asking if that’s something they can do. The more details you share with the florist the better they will be able to match your expectations!
