Wedding Planning Information and Advice

Wedding Flowers, Balloons and Floral Decorations

Wedding flowers and balloons can reflect any theme or colour scheme that you have chosen for your wedding day. Elegant floral and balloon decorations create a unique mood for your wedding. Wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions take place in a multitude of places; Castles, Stately Homes and Mansions, Churches, Hotels, Restaurants, Gardens, Hired halls and even Boats. Beautiful wedding decorations add style, fun, and drama to your wedding day.

Wedding decorations in flowers and balloons

When approaching the decoration for your wedding and reception venue, consider any style or theme that you want to create; casual, romantic, sophisticated, etc. Bear in mind that you should try to keep the wedding decorations as personal to the newly married couple as possible. If you are appointing a professional florist, balloon decorator or wedding coordinator, they will be able to offer helpful suggestions for decorating the venue. If you have photographs of the venue(s), these will help with your initial discussions with florists, balloon suppliers, etc.

Know your budget from the outset! The number of guests and the amount of money you have to spend will have a big impact on how extravagant your decorations will be. Wedding flowers and decorations can eat up a sizable proportion of your wedding budget, so controlling the costs from the start will give you an idea of what's possible and the quantity and types of decorations that are affordable.

Wedding Florist

The wedding florist will appreciate that every bride wants her special day to be unique and perfect. The florist will work with you to achieve your expectations, offer a personal service and bring in your floral requirements within your budget. Many florists now offer balloon decorations as part of their service. Whatever theme or colour scheme you have chosen for your wedding day, a good florist will take the time to discuss you requirements and offer suggestions or recommendations for all your floral requirements to compliment the theme of your wedding. 

Floral Decorations

Your florist will be delighted to advise on all of the floral requirements and decorations for your wedding day. Most professional florists will be pleased to visit the proposed wedding and reception venues to carry out a site survey on your behalf, to give better ideas of possible decoration within your chosen theme or colours, and within your budget.

Balloon Decorations

Your wedding decorations can be enhanced with displays of helium filled latex or foil balloons. An attractive arch to your wedding breakfast meal, your venue room decorated with a selection of star or heart shaped balloons or attractive table decoration displays in balloons coordinated to the colour scheme of your wedding. Balloons have become an attractive wedding decoration and, when combined with your other wedding floral arrangements, can produce a tasteful and exciting appearance for a wedding venue.

A specialist balloon decorator will be happy to work with you to create the theme and colourful decorations that you want for your wedding day. If you are appointing a balloon decorator separately to your wedding florist, they will work together to produce the tailor-made impressive results that you want for your venue. When appointing a balloon decorator, take a look through their portfolio of previous work for an indication of quality and further ideas.
