Arianna & Pauls wedding was nothing short of magical. Guest experienced our gorgeous downtown Cape Fear but was reminded the ocean was home as tropical leaves and blooms were incorporated throughout their design. The flowers included the perfect touch of white, blush, and ivory soft blooms with pops of peach tones and a whole lot of tropical!

The combination of this color scheme, bloom selection, and total babe bridal party… we can’t get enough! These two love birds gave us total freedom and trust to make each bridesmaid bouquet a little bit different. Such a freedom of design allowed us to get different shapes and shades of color, resulting in a special outcome. Checking out each finished product beside one another, it seemed destined to be! Our color scheme included burgundy, blush, blue, purple, ivory, and all the greens. Favorite blooms featured in this design include peonies (of course), anemones, and scabiosa!

The Intracoastal waterway was the perfect backdrop for Jen & Brad’s coastal wedding. Jen’s bouquet was a stunning combination of pink peonies, garden roses, ranunculus and succulents. Thank you Kate Supa Photography for the beautiful images.

Airlie Gardens was the perfect setting for this modern chic fall wedding. One of our favorite details was the head table inspired by Vincent an Gogh’s Starry Night. Ayla’s bouquet was a combination of white hydrangea, garden roses and beautiful anemones. Not even a rain storm could damper this beautiful Wilmington NC wedding.

As a leading florist in the Wilmington area, Fiore Fine Flowers is proud to have been a part of the Courtyards & Cobblestones premier wedding event this past January. We joined a team of talented wedding professionals this year at the City Club of Wilmington to show and tell about all of the latest floral designs and trends for the upcoming wedding season.
We were fortunate to meet with so many other talented minds that make up the wedding industry at this event. We also gained insight from many brides-to-be, to tap into some of the different visions brides have for the 2016 season. We all had an amazing time!

One of the main components of being a wedding florist is sitting down with brides & grooms and speaking about what our prospective clients are looking for in a florist and their vision of their wedding flowers. And we love it!
Meeting with wedding vendors can be overwhelming, essentially you are meeting strangers and trusting one of the most important moments in your life to someone you haven’t met. The upside is, if you have done your research well, you are in good hands with a professional who understands all the key components to a wedding and has the talent to leave you and your guests’ gushing.
And as one of those professionals, we thought it would be immensely helpful to offer some tips to newly engaged couples as they look for their wedding florist.
Here are our tips when meeting with you wedding florists:
1. WE LOVE HEARING ABOUT YOUR VISION: The more design ideas we have, the more creatively we can assist you. Color schemes, where you shop, magazine you love, Pinterest pages, pictures, adjectives….you name it…as designers we are all about brainstorming. So go ahead, show us your stuff!
2. THINK OF YOUR BUDGET: Be realistic about your wedding’s overall budget and keep your flowers & design component in mind. It’s not easy to have a concise budget on each entity of your wedding (we totally get it) but having an overall budget in mind allows a florist to choose seasonal flowers and flowers that may be more conscious of your number and guide you in the right direction that leaves you with a fantastic look and less fiscal stress.
3. HOW PINTERSTING: Most brides are pinning away on Pinterest, we love this! But having a specific board, based on design and flower ideas allows us to see a client’s taste firsthand, and as noted in tips one and two, have an immediate visual to discuss design and price points.
4. A COLOR SCHEME GOES A LONG WAY: As designers, we understand the sublime of a great color palette. Whether you envision lush & lavish or organic & fresh, adding your color through linens, paper details or overall design look goes a long, long way.
5. TELL US WHAT YOU DON’T LIKE: Many times a client isn’t sure what flowers or colors they like, but everyone knows what they do not like. Does Ivy drive you crazy? Let us know! The more we know about a client’s taste, the better we can custom create something that leaves you cheering. Dislikes can be just as helpful as likes.
6. FINDING A GOOD FIT IS KEY: Do your research. A great florist has a great reputation, ask around and check their reviews. Also, do they fit your taste and you? Albeit, a great designer can create a vast range of design aesthetics, it all still boils down to do they get you. Go to the florist’s blog, check out their recent work on their social media pages and review their sites. This is a great aid as you build your wedding team for your big day.
Hands down, having reputable, great vendors makes for a great event. And when a prospective client feels prepared, nothing can be more fun than looking at flowers and creating a custom design all for you.
