Hotel Academia Wedding
Can you imagine giving your florist absolute freedom in creating your decorations?
Well, that's exactly what happened in the story we're bringing you.
From the newlyweds we only received instructions that the decorations should not be classic and to be a bit wild.
We didn't get a detailed list of what colors and types of flowers they wanted, not even what type of arrangement they wanted.
I have to admit that it was quite stressful to create something totally on your own, but at the same time it was a lot of fun because situations like this don't happen very often.
What helped a lot in the whole story was the fact that we had a pretty good budget that we could "play with".
In addition to the floral decorations for this wedding, we also made invitations, numbers for tables and menus. We were given absolute freedom and control over the entire visual identity of the wedding.
The location of the store was the well-known Hotel Academia, it is a hall that we already know well considering that it is extremely popular among newlyweds.
That we know the space worked in our favor because it is always easier to decorate on familiar terrain. Although we love new spaces and challenges, I have to admit that we already feel at home here.
The newlyweds opted for a round youthful table. This type of table is popular in other countries, but in our country newlyweds still prefer a classic long table. Personally, I like this choice because I think that the newlyweds and godparents are closer to each other, and the whole impression is more intimate.
This shape of the table gave us the opportunity to decorate the table of the newlyweds in a slightly different style.
The table decoration consisted of two large arrangements. One was in the corner of the table and the other in front of the table. In combination with candles and fabric, we got an unusual design.
Behind the table of the newlyweds was a large circle of greenery with hanging roses in the middle. In combination with a curtain of lights, we achieved a dose of romance.
As far as guest arrangements are concerned, we went for a 50-50 design. Half the tables were adorned with high arrangements of greenery and roses, and half tables were decorated with small arrangements of greenery and orchids. We noticed that only one orchid in a vase is extremely effective. The same rule applies to kale, sunflowers, etc. Sometimes it is better to have fewer flowers and achieve effective decoration than to have a lot of flowers that do not look good overall.
We chose 50-50 type of decoration because the number of tables for this hall was large, and we had to be careful not to "clutter" it.
From the types of flowers we used quite a classic species, but with them we got quite effective arrangements. The thing is that there is no "boring" type of flowers (e.g. roses are often declared boring), but it is a matter of arranging. Absolutely saka type of flowers can be arranged so that each time it looks special.
As for the wedding bouquet, the bride had in it all the elements that stretched in other decorations. Purple roses as a flower that prevails on their table (and in the circle behind the table itself), an orchid that prevails in half of the arrangement and the greenery that is present in all the decoration.
This wedding was one of the last before the short break we take as we prepare for the new wedding season. I have to admit that although we had to think a lot and think about these decorations, that we really had fun creating this wedding. We can't wait for the 2019 season and new interesting and different ideas of our newlyweds.
