The wedding flowers

Nowhere in the realm of floral art is there anything that calls for more skill, more experience and resourcefulness than “The Wedding.” There is an irresistible charm, a fascination about it, in which the flowers play a leading role. Mere sentiment does not enter into the choosing of wedding flowers. Briefly speaking, they must be correct.

This booklet forecasts the mode in wedding decorations, and all flowers carried or worn by the bridal party. Our decorative department is adequately equipped for large or small decorations. The style in decorating no longer calls for heavy banked effects, but rather that which heightens and enhances an already beautiful interior.

Our bridal bouquets are in themselves wonderful creations. Our style is distinctive and each bunch is designed especially for the one who carries it. The bride’s shower bouquet has many variations. In all of them, the lines are equally good. In general effect, they are light and graceful. They conform and never detract. They have the charm of personality.

The bridesmaids, maid of honor and flower girls furnish the color symphony. They are the setting, of which the bride is the jewel. It is well to consult us early regarding the color scheme. It is all important. A small sample of the dress goods will aid us in suggesting the proper flowers available.

It is never advisable to leave the ordering of wedding flowers until the “eleventh hour.” Let us help you in early planning. Of course, we are prepared for any emergency, but time and forethought always bring out the finest detail.

Please note that some flowers used in our floral designs and decorations are at certain periods of the year out of season; however, similar effects in form and color can always be obtained through the use of other flowers.
