Creator of mazelmoments.com, an online resource for planning Jewish events, says that there is a lot of planning that goes into choosing flowers for your Jewish wedding celebration.
Online PR News – 01-February-2012 – New York, New York – “The wedding flowers you choose will set the tone for your Jewish Wedding, and add a special atmosphere to the the ceremony and reception,” says Cigall Goldman, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of mazelmoments (http://www.mazelmoments.com),ebsite dedicated to helping members of the Jewish community plan perfect celebrations. “Flower arrangements can make up a large part of the wedding décor as well as the wedding budget, so couples should choose their flowers wisely.”
Goldman says that the key lies in finding a reliable florist who is experienced in weddings, ideally Jewish weddings, and can create floral arrangements and decor that represent the couple’s unique style. However, before consulting a florist, she says that there are a few things that a couple should first consider in order to achieve amazing results without breaking the budget.
Budget and Logistics
The first step in selecting floral decorations is determining your budget. Costs should be allocated to ceremony and reception decor. For Jewish wedding ceremonies, flowers may be needed for the chuppah, a bridal bouquet, wedding party bouquets and boutonnieres, and family corsages. Couples may also choose to spread flower petals down the aisle leading up to the chuppah, and place a small flower bouquet at the end of each row of seats, or alternating rows. For couples that are getting married in a temple sanctuary, they may also decorate the bimah (the platform where the ceremony takes place) with floral arrangements. For the reception, Goldman suggests identifying the number of tables in the wedding hall, based on the number of guests. With an approximate budget for each table centerpiece, a florist is able to put together a realistic and thorough floral proposal.
“It is important to think about the color palette of your wedding,” says Goldman. “Consider the style of the wedding venue, and be sure to look at their available linens or rentals. Take into account the bridesmaids dresses and other colors that have already been determined. Flowers play a major role in your wedding photographs, so it is important to think about how all of the wedding colors will work together in photos.”
Goldman says that careful color coordination will centralize and unite the overall look of a wedding. She suggests starting with the wedding invitations, committing to a color scheme and keeping in mind all of the other items that will likely be affected by the choice.
Season and Availability
Goldman suggests that couples choose wedding flowers that are in season and grow local to their wedding location. Seasonal flowers are more readily available, less expensive, and often last longer.
According to Goldman, finding the right florist for a Jewish wedding is just as important as finding any other service provider.
“Wedding day flowers are an important part of the overall look of the day, to frame your photos and to accent the setting,” says Goldman. “Your wedding flowers should add to the overall festivities but not distract from the big picture.”
Goldman says that by keeping these tips in mind and making tasteful choices, a couple can stretch their budget and find beautiful wedding flowers that they and their guests will admire and remember.
