Make use of spaces

For an elaborate wedding, Caroline Tan-Reed from The Wedding Stylist reminds couples to leave enough time for the set-up. While you can explore different ideas, the professional planners notes that you should ensure consistency throughout the wedding spaces, and suggests adding personal touches and main showpieces to create talking points for your guests.

 

Work with the pros

"The most important element is you. It's your special day, so choose the flowers that best reflect your personality 

Your florist should bear three important points in mind to make your dream occasion come true: your wedding vision, budget and expectations. On top of that, you should work with professionals you can trust, and never agree to something that doesn't feel right in your heart." - Eleanor Yang, Fiore Dorato.
