Christmas Wedding Planning in July

christmas weddingWhile July may seem a far cry from Christmas, now is the perfect time to start finalizing your holiday party plans – that is, if you are planning a Christmas or holiday wedding!

Wedding planners agree that by the time we reach the middle of the summer months, holiday brides should have lined up their venues, chosen their wedding party and selected dresses.  Once those key elements are in place, it’s time to contacted the wedding florist. After all, the holidays are prime season for parties, events and social gatherings of all kinds, and resources are at a premium. 

Bagoy’s Florist & Gifts invites you to set up a consultation to meet with our expert wedding coordinator – collect your Pinterest photos and inspiration pieces, and come in to discuss your bridal flowers. Whether you have visions of a traditional Christmas venue, complete with illuminated trees and mistletoe; or you prefer a contemporary shimmering and sophisticated affair, we can help you to achieve your perfect wedding day. 

“Here in Alaska, it’s all about the sparkle,” says  Bagoy’s Florist & Gifts owner Chanda Mines. “We add crystals, pearls and alpine greenery. Centerpieces can be flocked with ‘snow’ so realistic it looks ‘cold!'” 

Here’s another tip from the wedding experts – in December, your “must have” flower may be out of season. This will result in your bouquets and floral arrangements being more expensive than you may have expected or budgeted for. When planning a winter wedding, tell your florist your vision, your color palette and show any photos that you have for inspiration; then allow the professional to create gorgeous bouquets and centerpieces from seasonal flowers. Professional floral designers know which flowers to use to aesthetically create the same look you desire, while saving your budget! They are also experts at utilizing non-floral elements such as illumination and decorative crystals to imagine your winter wonderland. 

The holidays are a very busy time for florists, so it is important to get on the calendar now! Call Bagoy’s Florist & Gifts now to ensure that your holiday wedding is as spectacular as it can be – December will be here before you know it!
