Although summertime is in full swing here in Baton Rouge, those who are planning a holiday wedding are more likely thinking of cooler temperatures and winter flowers. This is the perfect time of year to begin finalizing important decisions for that special day, and even though it may seem quite far away, the time truly will fly.
One of the first steps to getting wedding plans started is choosing a venue. You may have done that already, but before finalizing flowers, there is a step you may not have considered. Todd McBride from Billy Heroman’s says, “Our first suggestion to any bride getting married around Christmas is to check with the church or facility that will be hosting the ceremony and reception, to determine their regular holiday decorations.” Venues may already be planning to have beautiful décor in place that can save you some effort and money; but it is also important to find out ahead of time so that their decor won’t clash with the theme you are choosing yourself. Todd continues, “It will be best for us to help the bride plan her ideas in line with a similar style and color scheme from the venue.”
Popular flowers for bridal bouquets and arrangements during the holidays are red, white or a combination of both; often paired with evergreen elements. Add holly berries, pine cones , crystal beads or even small ornaments for a festive and beautiful arrangement. If you are imagining a traditional Christmas wonderland for your big day, then perhaps one of our flexible leasing options is best for you. We have lease programs in place for you to rent Christmas trees and wreaths, both great pieces for bringing true classic holiday spirit into the space; as well as adding color and filing the room. We also suggest arrangements of Christmas blooming plants, like poinsettias, to bring the room to life with seasonal flair.
