I always tell brides. You are allowed to go over board on one thing – that’s the fun in planning a wedding. Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in sticking to a budget so make sure you allow yourself to go a little wild on one aspect. For me it was my flowers.
I always knew I would use House of Elliott in Lisburn for my flowers. There was just no competition for me personally as I always bought bouquets there for special occasions and they always looked second to none.
I had my consultation with Karen around a year before the wedding – I wanted to make sure I got that date. We talked over the style of flowers I wanted, prices, my budget and how the flowers would work on the day. Before my consultation, I stalked Pinterest so I knew exactly what I wanted which may the whole process so simple. Karen showed me pictures upon pictures of past brides whose flowers were executed to perfection so I knew I’d made the right choice.
On the day, the bouquets and hair pieces were delivered to the house and everyone wished the girls and I well. They were perfect, even better than I imagined. When I arrived at the church I was taken back by how beautiful they were. House of Elliott used all of our flowers in the church as well as the venue, so nothing was wasted. Our pew ends served as small centre pieces at our reception, whilst the larger table centres were placed at the entrance at the church. The urns, well they really do speak for themselves. They were spectacular.
If you haven’t chosen your florist yet then definitely do consider House of Elliot. I cannot promote them enough for the amazing job they did!
