Custom Floral Design vs. Floral Packages

Happy almost spring to you all!

Today we’re back to chat about different types of wedding floral packages for your Durham wedding day. Florists are as many as the day is long, and we all have our own unique spin on things, from how we design to delivery policies, to pricing. At Floral Dimensions we’re always doing our best to assure that each couple digging deeply into planning their Durham wedding has options to choose from as they craft their wedding day.

Custom Floral Design

Custom floral design is what we’re what we’re known for on the Durham wedding scene and it’s the most common way to plan your wedding floral arrangements. Working with Bea and Stephanie, brides choose everything from seasonal blooms to colors, size, and quantity.

Custom floral design is best for couples who want complete control over all their options. Couples choosing a custom design also want a variety of different options from rentals, floral arches, and bigger center pieces.

You might choose custom floral if you’re hoping to take your wedding day to the next level and wow your guests and friends with an amazing floral experience at your wedding.

Most of our brides come into the store for consultations with Pinterest boards filled with ideas, and are ready and excited to get started on the process. Others rely on Stephanie’s design expertise. But at the end of the consultation after they book, they leave knowing that their wedding flowers are in the best and most capable hands around.

Pre Fixe Packages

Our Pre Fixe floral packages are new to the studio and we’re excited to bring them to life and to Durham brides who need them. We’ve designed our pre fixe floral packages for couples who want to choose a preset package and focus their planning energy on the things that are most important to them.

We’ve created three beautiful floral packages for Durham brides that cover a variety of wedding styles. There’s even room to choose colors and match color style palettes. Our pre fixe floral options allow couples to place orders over email, and check wedding flowers off their list. It’s a win for everyone.

We have three packages that cover a variety of styles and couples get to choose quantities and colors to make the process short and sweet. If you’re interested in browsing our packages, you can download our studio guide here..

Durham Hotel Wedding

We were thrilled to design for a beautiful Durham rooftop hotel wedding. Amy and Chris got married in the fall, at the Durham Hotel, and it was a modern and spectacular wedding. Sean True was kind enough to share some of his images of the day with us.

Stephanie created a modern green and white palette to compliment Amy’s minimal modern wedding look, and she knocked it out of the park. Because the wedding was on the rooftop, Amy went with some simple green and white altar pieces, and a green and white bouquet for herself. Several modern blooms like Ranunculus, Silver Dollar Eucalyptus, Dahlias, and Dusty Miller helped set the tone for the wedding style.

Altar Pieces were a beautiful addition, and continued the green and white wedding color palette. Silver Dollar Eucalyptus, Anemones, green hydrangea and Ranunculus created a dramatic and lush effect to the altar pieces. They accented the incredible view from the roof of the Durham Hotel, and set the tone in terms of a formality. In addition, a remembrance bouquet were a quiet and beautiful expression of love for honoring the memories of loved ones no longer with them.

 

Finally, the green and white wedding palette accented the portraits. Big lush bouquets are always showstoppers and provide some texture and depth to portraits,, but there’s something about a bouquet that compliments portraits and doesn’t get in the way of emotions. Amy’s bouquet definitely accomplishes this goal.

Finally, this beautiful Durham Hotel wedding was made possible not just by Amy and Chris, but by all the wonderful vendors they commissioned to help make their day possible. I

Happy New Year from Floral Dimensions!

We’re excited to start out 2020 by sharing some beautiful images from Michael Escobar Photography of a beautiful Durham Wedding at the Cotton Room.  We were pleased to design the wedding florals for this fall wedding and we loved how they came out.

For starters, the color palette was a beautiful deep red color accented by beautiful greenery.  Red anemones, succulents, amaranthus and eucalyptus made up the bridal bouquet. It looked amazing in the overhang outside the cotton room by the railroad tracks.

The bridesmaids bouquets were lush and luxe in their own right, featuring purple and maroon dahlias, some green hydrangea, and the same beautiful red anemones.

 

The groomsmen and ring bearer continued the red floral design elements by sporting red roses with eucalyptus in their boutonnieres.

Stephanie, Caitlin, and Jose out did themselves when it came to ceremony floral design. Using a lush minimal inspiration, they designed a rustic ceremony installation of vintage shutter doors, and decorated with dramatic, hanging red amaranthus, the deep red and purple dahlias, and silver dollar eucalyptus among the greenery. They lined the chairs with simple sprigs of eucalyptus to complete the minimal look. Combined with the lights in the twined balls hanging from the ceiling at the Cotton Room, with its long and airy white drapes, the effect was beautiful. The filtered light created a beautiful modern minimal atmosphere, perfect for a fall wedding.

As we move into the reception, our non floral centerpieces took the cake. Caitlin submerged curly willow in tall cylinders filled with water, topped off with a large tea votive and they looked amazing under the dimmed lights of the reception. Other tables included greenery and succulents, and the ceremony centerpiece became a focal point for the lounge area at the reception.

We were so glad to have our wedding floral designs be part of the beautiful modern Durham wedding at the cotton room. If you liked looking at our work, check us out on Instagram and Facebook.
