Schaaf Floral is not the only florist in Minneapolis. But when selecting floral professionals who have a wealth of experience in staging weddings, Schaaf is an excellent choice. And although we are currently in the middle of the summer, event planners recommend that those couples planning a holiday celebration should now be at the point of finalizing the larger aspects of their winter wedding day – venue, entertainment, and florists. It may seem strange, but it’s time to begin thinking of evergreens, mistletoe and poinsettia plants – and our experienced designers have some valuable tips regarding your holiday wedding planning to share to help you out.
* The holidays are especially busy for venues, entertainers and caterers. It is important that you have reserved your venue and all the major facets of your day by 6 months before your event – in other words, if you haven’t done so yet, it’s time to make the call!
* During the winter season, there are flowers which may not be readily available; or they may be in high demand because of corporate and personal parties. Therefore, designers suggest that a bride come to the floral consultation with an overall vision of her bouquet and arrangements, while not being “married” to one specific flower if possible. Our creative artisans can create a gorgeous design from your inspiration pieces that is both unique and within budget.
* Christmas weddings most often exhibit red and/or white flowers and decor details. These color palettes usually feature accents in metallic tones as well as natural elements such as evergreen boughs. If you prefer a contemporary spin of the classics, consider replacing reds with magentas or purples – and even going with lime green instead of the seasonal evergreen!
Planning ahead is the key to ensuring that your holiday wedding meets all of your expectations. The wedding designers at Schaaf Floral
invite you to take a break from the pool and come in to discuss mistletoe and holiday decor – because the holidays, and your wedding day, will be here before you know it.
