Q: What florals do you think will be popular going into 2023?
A: From what I have seen and read, floral trends for 2023 will be classic, smaller, and with little to no greens. From bridal bouquets with little arrangements of colours and flower types to monochromatic and single-flower blooms. I think the trend will be more reminiscent of classic arrangements with a modern twist.
Q: What is your favourite thing about being a wedding florist?
A: CREATIVITY! I love that every project is different and that I can create and design something different for each couple. Every couple’s vision is unique to them. I love being inspired by the variety of flowers and combinations I get to work with to achieve their stunning final look.
Q: How far in advance do you start designing floral arrangements for a wedding?
A: Our creative team will meet with the couple to create the personalized vision they have in mind for their special day. We then construct an inspiration board for the couple according to their wishes and the styles discussed. From this stage, I need to think about the logistics of executing this vision for my clients. The budget, availability, and climate are important factors to consider. At least one month before the wedding, I will confirm the floral order has been sent to the supplier. I then receive the flowers about 2 -3 days before their wedding date and begin the fun of making the arrangements. This way the florals are as fresh and beautiful as possible!
Q: What are your thoughts on Pantone announcing Viva Magenta as the colour of 2023?
A: Loved it! It’s such a vibrant rich colour! I can’t wait to work with this empowering carmine red tone!
