Wedding trends in our area
Spring Wedding Season is upon us ! 2017 is bringing new, fresh ideas from our brides and we are happy to say, flowers are back in ! Not just for the brides and bridesmaids, but lovely, flowery centerpieces and flowers for the ceremony. We are designing beautiful florals on crosses, arches, rustic stands and barrels for the ceremony, even altar tables. We see more and more grooms becoming involved as the rising costs bring both families together to share the expenses of the grand affair. Here are some facts that we find helpful for those planning a wedding:
Half of couples’ time planning is spent on mobile devices – a 66% increase from 2015
• The average couple begins looking for their florist 7 months before their wedding
• Couples typically hire 13 vendors to support their day
• Most couples underestimate the cost of their wedding by 40%
• The average wedding cost in your area is $24,200
Although, Westover’s Flowers has not gone mobile, we find more brides emailing us photos and even choosing flowers via email communication. Let’s be realistic, we are all busy and I have found being able to send inspiration photos, share Pinterest boards and ideas are helpful for our brides.
I will be posting photos of our 5 wedding marathon weekend soon…..Call us for an appointment and we will help you plan your perfect wedding day !
