I never take our clients for granted. In fact, we do a lot of active listening as we get to know YOU. It’s important for us to get to know your communication style, color preferences and what type of flowers you want for your event. We welcome your beautiful floral visions but what surprises us most is the overly broad misunderstanding some have about entire classes of flowers.
This leads me to a super cute engagement with a Bride about the Alstroemeria flower, commonly known as the Peruvian lily.
As the conversation begins…
"So tell me, are there any flowers you absolutely do not want to see in your wedding day floral arrangements?"
The Bride responds, "absolutely NO Lilies, they’re much too large."
The Lily shown below is known as the Stargazer/Easter (White) Lily but there are also many other varieties to choose from.
As we continued our conversation, I shared a number of other flowers in the “Lily” family and as it turns out the bride really loves the Peruvian Lily (aka Alstromeria flower). The beautiful bouquet shown below was found on Pinterest and uses Alstromeria as one of the focal flowers for an elegant and bright bouquet.
