So this past week has been crazy... but I LOVE it!!! We had a very wonderful wedding and a portrait bqt for one our upcoming weddings!
One thing I think often gets over looked by brides is the importance of a portrait bqt. It may seem kind of trivial at the time but it's your first chance to see what your florist has in mind for your actual wedding bqt. Your portrait bqt will be smaller and not exactly like your bridal bqt but it should have very similar qualities. You can see how your chosen flowers fit together and if the colors of the flowers and actually what you are looking for. A side note here would be that flower colors do vary but if you see a problem or want a different shade of the color, then simply let your florist know so on the actual bqt they can try to fit the flowers to your vision a little better. For many girls a portrait bqt will be the first time they see, work with, and handle a bqt, so it's always a very nice trial run on handling one.
We send well wishes and blessings to the newlywed couple Carly and Bo!!! Thank you so much the wonderful opportunity to be your wedding florist!! <3
