Creating a Romantic Ceremony Area
So you have the most wonderful guy in the world, the wedding gown is everything you ever dreamed of, your best friend is flying in from across the country to be your maid of honor and your favorite location is available on your special date. What more could you ask for……??? Well, after looking at the hotel, banquet hall, church setting, private home or outdoor space, you realize that the ceremony where you will be exchanging your vows just doesn’t look quite like what you expected it to be. You want it to be special as you enjoy those first few moments as a married couple. So what do you do? Talking with one of the Floral Artisans at Flowers From The Rainflorist is the first step. We have created beautiful weddings at almost every venue in our area at one time or another and if not, we are willing to meet you there and do what is called a “site check”. This gives us a chance to take pictures, measurements and to get a feel of the existing architecture and to talk with you on site about the look and feel that you want for your vow area. Taking advantage of existing structures is important as you can keep your costs down on decorating by enhancing areas by the use of garlands, columns, or draping fabric. As your Personal Florist, we can also create ways to disguise areas with trees, plants or again, the use of fabrics. We also have arches, columns, banisters, chuppahs, candle stands, wedding canopy's, gazebo’s and french doors to create an area that has the ambiance you want to create a romantic area to exchange your vows. We are including some pictures of ceremonial vow exchange areas that the Floral Artisans have created in recent weddings. The first selection show how by adding flowers,petals, greenery and draping to simple gazebo's can create a romantic vow area. The first picture is from a wedding held recently at the Palms Hotel on Miami Beach, the second was held at the Pine Island Ridge Country Club in Davie, Fl and the last gazebo is from a wedding held at the Jacaranda Country Club located in Plantation Fl. Sometimes that little extra touch can make your wedding day spectacular!
The next selection of pictures were simple meeting rooms in hotels that have been transformed by the use of columns in varying heights, lighting, draping, french doors, and flowers. Simple changes helped create beautiful vow exchanges and excellent back-drops for family pictures. Can you imagine looking at wedding album years to come and seeing a plain hotel room as a back-drop? Not very Romantic! The first hotel ceremony room is the Yankee Trader located on Ft. Lauderdale Beach Strip which is a very popular location for destination weddings. The second and third pictures are from the famous Bonaventure Resort & Spa Hotel. The popularity of both venues for destination weddings is based on a solid reputation of offering excellent service, first class dining and so much more for their guests. Before and after the event, your guests can enjoy golf, the beach, fabulous shopping on Las Olas Blvd and many activities no matter what age or interests they might have.This makes for a wonderful trip for everyone! And lastly, ceremony's in Florida are often around held the pool area either at private homes or at local hotels. Private homes can often offer more intimacy with your guests and you do not have to worry about other guests wandering into the ceremony to see "what's going on". When you are at a hotel poolside, you often have the additonal attraction of the swimmers taking a peek. And it's true what they say...some folks should never venture out in public in bathing suits! So if you love the place you chosen but the ceremony area just doesn't make you thrilled, don't be discouraged ....just give us a call and let us work our magic!
