Flowers at a Destination Wedding
Just as different flowers are native to particular and specific places and not all flowers are in bloom everywhere and in every season, so must brides and grooms remember that destination weddings are a different ballgame and that they should prepare accordingly. The top three on this list of things to keep in mind when planning for a destination wedding according to Clara are, to know the availability of dates from their vendors, the number of guests they will have and the viability of the venue to create good event logistics.
From Hindu weddings that are loaded with a lot of symbolism and color to very elegant and minimalist weddings on the beach to weddings chock full of traditions in San Miguel, Florklore Studio has done bespoke, alternative and destination weddings as varied and diverse as the flowers in the most colourful spring bouquet. When pressed for which one has been the most unique one they’ve ever planned though they find it hard to pinpoint a specific one because theirs is a studio that creates concept weddings to suit the uniqueness of each couple or as Clara says, “All my weddings are unique and that is part of what we offer our couples, because their love story is unique and we have to represent and reflect just that.”
“I have been lucky enough to make unique weddings because in my studio we create concepts and that is the best thing that can happen to you. It is not only about flowers and making floral arrangements.”
And indeed theirs is an execution so elegant of a beautifully thought out concept, perfectly tied together to tell a story and achieve the couples’ vision for the day in an absolutely unforgettable way.
The Ultimate Dilemma: Pick a Flower, Pick a Favourite?
Normally we investigate our destination wedding planners’ favourite venues but today we have a special twist. Which brings us to the big question: Is it possible to pick just one favourite of anything?
Or even a list of top five favourites? Hard, right?
Especially if that anything is a choice from among the most gorgeous of what nature has to offer in all of the flowers that exist.
So which flowers make it to Clara’s top five favourite flowers list?
“Dahlia is my favorite flower, it is elegant, cheerful, impressive in its colors and textures. I love that its origin is Mexican.
Ranunculus are winter flowers, I love them for the amount of petals that exist in it being so small.
The Lisianthus is my flower-friend, it is in beautiful colors, I love its curls, it is elegant, it is not difficult to take care of, it is noble and you find it almost all year round.
Phlox, is a small flower that looks like a butterfly and is precisely the one that a bouquet or a centerpiece needs to “fly” and finally,
Poppies, I love their circular shape and how their petals intertwine, it’s like a ballet dancer.”
“It is a very difficult question!” she adds with a laugh.
We can’t thank Clara and Hugo from Florklor for sharing the flower love with us. My favourite flower is cempasúchil and I love the way adorn flowers photograph in centrepieces and bridal bouquets from wedding pictures I’ve taken.
