Of all the things that make your wedding unique and bring out your personality, it is your look: your inspiration details and flowers that tell your story. What we do at The Hazlehurst House is help you get that vision on paper and bring it to life! We do that with a top notch design team that meets with you one on one and brainstorms with you on how to make your dream a reality. There are no “standard setups” here at The Hazlehurst House. Each bride makes the venue pop with her own style. There are a lot of great tools out there to use and Pinterest is taking this process by storm! There are others like Project Wedding, The Knot, and more. Making an inspiration board should be your first priority once you have secured your venue. An inspiration board will help you narrow in on what elements you really want to showcase and help us all stay on track. It will even help as you shop for that perfect dress!
Each of our packages has a décor allowance. As you meet with our team, the first goal will be to evaluate inspiration ideas and try to determine a realistic budget. When thinking of your décor and floral, there are three main areas to consider: your ceremony location, your personal flowers, and your reception. Two main factors that drive a floral budget are how many bridal attendants you have and your guest count. The average bride has four to six attendants, and that usually translates into about $1,000 in personal flowers by the time you add in corsages and boutonnieres. Your guest count dictates the number of tables at your reception which translates into table centerpieces. At the Hazlehurst House, our gardens are lush year round, providing a beautiful backdrop for your ceremony so you can choose to spend your floral budget on other areas.
There are so many creative ways get a look and maximize a floral and décor budget. Again, that is where our design team rocks!! They are excellent at both design and planning. Most importantly, by using our design team, the designer is coordinating with all other elements going on with food, linens, favors, etc. There are advantages to have one team take care of all detail.
