Plan Your Holiday Wedding During the Summer

holiday weddingWith bright sunshine filled days and soaring temperatures, anything that takes place during the winter holiday season may seem far off and miles away. But if you are planning a holiday wedding, now is the exact time to start finalizing details and making plans for venues, caterers, and flowers. That time of year is very busy with corporate Christmas parties, as well as many social events – so determining your vendors and schedules now is imperative. If you are looking for special flower types or colors for your wedding bouquets, planning ahead is key as December traditionally sees a lot of floral delivery requests.

Casas Adobes Flower Shops’s wedding coordinator Sarah shares “Summer is a great time to start planning your winter wedding flowers. We usually carry most of the flowers that are available in the winter here at the shop in the summer, so when a bride comes in she will be able to see first hand the flowers we will use to create her bouquets and centerpieces.” Seeing the flowers and experimenting with arrangements is a great way to feel confident that you will love your bouquets.

Evergreens and pine cones create festive holiday decor; white branches, crystal baubles and shiny ornaments also make the party sparkle. A holiday wedding is also especially magical with candlelight and low lighting.

It is important to determine if your prospective floral vendor is experienced in staging weddings and creating wedding flowers – not all are. As a resident expert, Sarah also recommends that you clarify with your florist what their delivery schedule looks like in the month of December. “Some florists won’t book weddings in the weeks leading up to Christmas due to high delivery volume,” she cautions. Planning ahead is always better than waiting until the last minute, so call Sarah today to schedule an appointment. As a wedding coordinator, she is your best local source of information for your Tucson holiday wedding.

Casas Adobes Winter Weddings

One of the hottest color palettes of the season is ivory and gray – and not surprisingly, we have our own take on that as well. Here in desert country, succulents are always trending as a go-to floral detail to add to bridal bouquets and centerpieces. The succulents bring a different shade of gray to the party – while other regions look to charcoal or slate gray, our choice is the green gray of the desert blooms.

What better way to set of greenish gray and white ivory roses than with greenery; these bouquets take the traditional gray palette and liven it up with broad green petals, berries and unique floral accents. If you would like to play on the winter theme a little bit more, spray with sparkling glitter, or add “ice cube” crystals to the clear vases for a chilly effect.

Succulents, as well as eucalyptus leaves, will look beautiful in centerpieces when placed in pewter or silver bowls or flower boxes; the arrangements can be illuminated with extra wide pillar candles with multiple wicks for a flickering, campfire effect.
