Botanica Flowers: “Best florist for Wedding Flowers in Columbus Ohio” – Cassie

A snippet from Cassie’s recent review that warms our heart to read as we have put a lot of time and energy into building this brand. As time slips away constantly, I realized it’s been far too long since we took to the blog! So many things and changes have happened since this time last year. Our biggest happenings include the welcoming of a new Botanica Flowers team member, Amy, who I will introduce later in this post, bridal shows, relationship building, completely booked weekends and *drumroll* a total revamp of our wedding website columbusweddingflorist.com

With this new wedding and events website overhaul, we have incorporated a far better and more detailed Wedding Flower Packages page for our prospective clients. We realize that there are two types of brides and rarely the in-between when it comes to selecting your wedding flowers. You’re either the bride that knows exactly what you want down to the technical name of colors with a very definitive vision or you’re the bride that doesn’t really have any idea and would like guidance in selecting the best flowers to accommodate your personality and type of wedding. Regardless, we love to work with all types of brides, we have tools to help you define your budget and the ability to make many accommodations to ensure that your wedding flowers will be the least of your stressors leading up to your big day!

For the bride who’s not so sure, you now can browse through trendy pre-packaged wedding flower designs that our design team has created. You will find more traditional style packages along with some eclectic designs to showcase a little something for everyone. After you make a selection, you can choose between three different options based on your needs, Intimate, Trendy and all All out Bash. At this point, you have the capability of editing any quantities within the package or completely customizing a specific wedding flower package from scratch.

Unique Wedding Bouquets for Fall

In the wedding industry, trends change at a pretty rapid rate. If you’re getting married in the fall and have no idea where to start with flowers, we’ve compiled 3 bouquet styles based off of fall color and textures to assist you with the process.

This bouquet is classic in it’s composition, a traditional round style, but not so typical with the flowers used. The red spikey flowers are considered a tropical flower called Protea. The Protea in this particular bouquet acts as a focal flower with wonderful texture and depth. The green fuzzy looking flower is called Green Ball Dianthus, another great texture flower that’s fun and funky.  The berries are, as you may have guessed it, berries. Their technical name is Hypericum Berries and they come in a variety of different color including red, green and peach and act as a subtle textured addition to almost any style of bouquet in almost any color scheme. There is a green in this bouquet that’s kind of whimsical in it’s nature called Bupleurum. This particular green also works very well in various bouquet styles and color schemes and add another layer of subtle interest.

Though you can’t fully tell from this imagery, this bouquet is intended to be a cascading style bouquet with the ivy falling downward. The bright orange roses, waxflower, yellow sunflowers and pink miniature calla lilies add just the right amount of “pop” to this earthy bouquet. The dark burgundy/brown wild looking thing is called Kangaroo Paw, it’s another fun and funky texture that works great in fall floral pieces. This bouquet also utilizes the reddish orange Portea, red berries and bupleurum. Though you can’t really see from the images, there are real raspberries also being used as another source of texture and uniqueness.

Last but not least, this is a non-traditional hand tied bouquet that you would hold the same as the first traditional style hand-tied bouquet. The same types of flowers are used in this bouquet as the first bouquet with the subtle addition of miniature green hydrangea  but the composition is much different. This piece is not for the traditional inspired bride to be as much as it is for the eclectic, earthy, organic inspired bride to be as it has a lot of abstract elements like the branches and Kangaroo Paw.
