Complete Floral and Event Design for your Summer Wedding

summer weddingWhen planning a wedding, there are so many details and so many elements to consider, and they all need to fit into a budget. While it may be tempting to simply choose the lowest price vendor, when it comes to your flowers and venue decor, that plan of action may end up costing you dearly.

Why should you use a Gordon Boswell professional designer to help you plan your wedding décor? There are many reasons.

The Right Flowers – The designer will learn about your style, your personality, and your dreams for how your flowers should look, and then make recommendations based on all their knowledge. Often there are alternate flowers that will hold up better in the heat; or perhaps a more cost effective bloom will emulate your first choice and look just as beautiful.

A Creative Approach – With years of wedding experience behind us, we can give you ideas as to how to get the most bang for your dollar – whether moving ceremony flowers to the reception or using more expensive flowers for the bouquets but an alternate flower for the venue. We’ve seen it all, and we have ideas.

No Surprises – When simply choosing the lowest cost option, you may not have a clear understanding of the quality or type of flowers, the level of service (delivery and installation?) or have any remedy last minute should something go wrong. Not only will a personal relationship mitigate many of these issues, but a professional designer will see you through to the end.

A Total Solution – Gordon Boswell will work with you to source your tables, your décor and more. By allowing us to handle the entire look of the wedding, you can rest and relax!

There is no substitute for meeting with a wedding designer for your wedding. Not only can they create beautiful wedding flowers that represent you perfectly, but they can assist you with tips and tricks to make your day less stressful and more enjoyable. Call the experts at Gordon Boswell today, and let’s talk.

Beat the Heat- Texas Summer Weddings

summer weddingsWhen planning a summer wedding in Texas, keeping your guests cool is likely a top priority. As one of Fort Worth’s most popular wedding florists, Gordon Boswell has designed the bridal bouquets, centerpieces and floral arrangements for countless warm weather ceremonies.

summer weddingsWhile choosing your favorite flower might be your first inclination for your bouquets and venue décor, you may wish to consider that certain flowers hold up far better in the summer heat. Orchids, roses and calla lilies are known to florists as the best options for summer bouquets; the lesser known, vivid celosias and lisianthus blooms are also very hardy, and add exceptional color to your arrangements. Another creative touch that adds heat-resistant beauty to your arrangements are non-traditional greens, such as olive branches, eucalyptus leaves and succulents.


The bouquets should be kept in water until the very last minute; venue flowers, ceremony and altar flowers and personal arrangements can be presented in stunning vases which will keep them hydrated throughout the day. For outdoor centerpieces, bubble bowls filled with water and submerged blooms provide beauty without fear of wilting.
