Destination Bride - Maui Wedding Flower Tips

  1. Envision the Big Picture Your wedding flowers will be one of the most important purchases of your lifetime. Destination brides need help to envision what the wedding will look like with guests, flowers, dinner tables, ceremony and reception flowers and this may be hard to accomplish when brides live in another state or country. It is your event florist's job to help their destination bride envision the big picture.

  2. Trusting Your Florist It is important to communicate to your florist what your vision is. It is your florist's job to take your vision and make it a reality. A true event florist will be able to spell out your concerns and address them with suggestions that make sense. Your professional event florist factors in all outside elements in your event concerning lighting, sunset, layout, guest services and more.

  3. Reusing Ceremony Flowers Wedding guides often advise brides to reuse Ceremony wedding flowers at your reception. This may be easy if your ceremony and reception locations are located on the same property.

  4. Booking Your Florist Early Maui is one of the most popular wedding destinations in the world. It is important to book your florist as early as possible to guarantee the services you want.

  5. Tropical Flowers Maui is an island that has limited flowers sources. Our island produces orchids and tropical flowers practically year-round. There are a number of gorgeous wedding bouquets and arrangements we can produce using our beautiful tropical flowers. Although many brides are dazzled by 'mainland' flowers such as peonies and hydrangeas, let your florist show you our local tropical flower bouquets and save some money at the same time.

  6. Contrast Colors Many brides make the mistake of using only one or two color shades in their bouquets. This is boring and will not show up very well in pictures. By using a variation of colors, your bouquets will be explosive in pictures. For example, instead of using just white flowers, mix it up with a touch of butter yellow, ivory and pale pink that will create a stunning piece of bouquet art.

  7. DIY Flowers Brides try to save money by doing too much themselves. It's ok to do a few DIY flower items, but too many will get you overwhelmed. It's important the DIY bride considers the time it actually takes to produce flower arrangements. It's like going to a nail salon, having all the necessary professional equipment and trying to do them'll have painted nails, but they won't look as good as if a professional did them.
