Christmas in July Wedding Planning

holiday weddingIt’s summer in Fort Worth, and you know what that means – poinsettias, evergreen & mistletoe! If you are planning a holiday wedding, summer is the time to begin deciding on your wedding florist and finalizing your decisions for amazing holiday florals.

The season, which runs from Thanksgiving weekend through the New Year, is one of the busiest times of the year for corporate and community events and parties, and so wedding planners will be competing for venues, caterers, and florists. Experts agree that the earlier you can book these crucial resources, the better – and the wedding coordinators at Gordon Boswell recommend that you begin planning your floral arrangements and bouquets at least 4-6 months before the big day. When you schedule your appointment to discuss flowers, it is helpful if the venue is already booked so that we have a canvas to work from.

Depending on the venue, they may already have holiday decor planned – towering Christmas trees in the lobby, or white twinkling lights and evergreen wreaths throughout the room. Check with the venue to see if there will already be decorations that you can leave in place and simply add to; or if you will need to take down some items to build your perfect room. Holiday weddings often fit right in, as the most popular color palettes for flowers are red or white (or a combination of both). Spruce or fir boughs add seasonal beauty as well as a lovely fragrance; and small details such as berries, pine cones or natural twigs add to the overall winter effect. Because some flowers are not readily available in the winter, a knowledgeable designer can help you create the perfect bouquet within the color scheme, and not go over budget.

Summer is in full swing, but that simply means it is the ideal time to plan your Christmas or holiday wedding. Gordon Boswell’s talented team is already at work planning for the season – call to schedule an appointment, and take advantage of our expertise for the perfect winter event. `
