Flower Factors to Consider

Varied petals, distinct fragrances and the vivid colors of flowers speak volumes. The language of flowers brings sweet memories and evokes emotions surrounding friendship, happiness and, most importantly, love.

With this in mind, flowers play a very important role in setting the tone for your wedding. They are so essential that brides often ask, “What are the best flowers to use for my wedding?” The answer is always the same: “What do you want the flowers to do?”

When it comes to deciding what flowers will best suit your wedding, I encourage you to play a little game with your significant other. Stand together and close your eyes. Picture a large white room. Next, fill it with your favorite things in nature. Is your room filled with tall redwood trees towering over you with hanging canopies of rich greenery? Is it a white sandy beach stretching out as far as the eye can see, harmonized by the tranquil sea? Perhaps it’s your grandmother’s garden blooming with vivid blossoms of pinks, purples and raspberries?

Once you visualize your space, share it with your significant other and compare notes. Through this exercise you will discover common ground that you can build upon together.

Interpreting Your Ideas

Couples today have amazing resources at their fingertips including magazines, websites and social media to assist them with choosing the right flowers for their wedding. The industry offers a plethora of ideas, concepts and creations. It’s no wonder most couples feel that choosing flowers and designing their wedding seems a daunting task. While they may rely on the same resources for inspiration, our Pebble Beach Resorts Event Design Team will interpret your ideas and dreams to create a perfectly personalized, once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Shakespeare once wrote, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” The same can be said about your wedding. Simple and elegant, chic and sophisticated or traditional and romantic, your special day at Pebble Beach Resorts will smell sweet indeed.

It’s time to begin dreaming…
