To us its more than just flowers!

Photography by Sarah Babcock Studio – The Dayton Arcade – Nuage Linens – Table Top by Prime Time Party Rental – KMC Weddings If wedding flowers are a top priority for your wedding day, you’ll want to hire an event florist who specializes in wedding work. There are different types of florists with different areas of expertise. Your local flower shop can design bouquets and centerpieces for you, but they probably don’t offer the extensive rental selection a wedding florist does.  Elaborate custom pieces probably aren’t an option. The type of florist you’ll want to work with depends completely on your vision for your wedding flowers! At Floral V Designs, weddings are our passion, and our team has years of experience creating custom designs to reflect our couples. Cady, Lauren or Kim sit down with each potential client to discuss their wedding day wish-list, priorities, and budget. We will create a proposal specifically tailored to that couple. The proposal is just the beginning, however: weddings are productions that require a great deal of time, skill and effort to bring a couple’s vision to life!   Photography by Sarah Babcock Studio – Draping by Unlimited Events – Dayton Arcade Design and Planning by KMC Weddings When you hire an event florist, you’re investing in a product and a service. It all starts with consultations, crafting custom proposals, sketching concepts.  From there we answer questions and changes throughout the planning process. Next we design and set the wedding, flip the ceremony, and tear down the event.  As you see there is a lot of time and skill that goes into making a wedding event! Many wedding florists, like Floral V Designs, are actually floral and event designers. This means we are often involved with the overall design of a wedding, and not […]

Im Engaged & Looking for a wedding florist!

  Photography by Odessa James Photography – The Meshewa House at Turner Farm – Design by KMC Weddings If you’re here, you’re likely ready and want to reserve Floral V Designs for your big day.  Well lets start out by saying CONGRATULATIONS!! Even if you have your wedding date picked out, you might not be quite ready to dive head first into the design process. It’s important that you give yourself some time to research and get inspired during the early planning process.  Choose your venue, pick out the dresses, start Pinning images that inspire you. Photography by Amanda Donaho On average, most of our clients book with us 6 months to one year out from their wedding date. That said, we have some couples who book more than a year out, and others who reach out 3 months from the big day. But don’t wait to reach out to your top choice vendors. Especially if you’re getting married during peak wedding season( May, June, Sept, Oct), since most are only able to accommodate a few weddings per weekend! Before you reach out, it’s helpful to have your venue selected and booked, since the location determines so many factors of the day (style and color palette, guest count, etc). Planning reception flowers and décor without a venue is like decorating a house you haven’t bought yet. The couch might not fit and the colors could be all wrong! If you’d like to chat flowers before you book your venue, we are happy too!  Just keep in mind that it will be a more general conversation and things might change once you settle on a space.   Photography by Odessa James Photography – The Meshewa House at Turner Farm – Design by KMC Weddings   Once you have your venue, the […]

Kalie & Evan

Kalie & Evan’s beautiful day took place at Polan Farm in Kettering, Ohio on Sunday Sept 3, 2017.  The beautiful bride choose light champagne dresses and beautiful greenery based bouquets with accents of white and cream flowers. The men choose navy pants with suspenders.  A more comfortable, informal look. The brides boho style bouquet consisted of seeded euc, silver dollar euc, maidenhair fern, white astilbe, white lisanthus, white mini calla lilies and white garden roses. The mens boutonnieres were clusters of greenery, white astilbe and the groom wore a mini calla lily. The bride choose a beautiful hair comb adorned by spray roses, seeded eucalyptus and white lisanthus blooms. Thank you to Anna Markley Photography.

Kerry & Anthony

Our beautiful bride Kerry chose to carry a boho style bridal bouquet filled with bright colors and different greeneries for texture. We adored the bridesmaids floral print dresses.  The bride choose simpler flowers so the print and florals didn’t compete. 9 bridesmaids supported Kerry walking down the aisle to her groom. Sweets and desert tables are a trend we see more in 2017 than traditional cakes. Family style seating lined the reception at the Dayton Masonic Temple. We sourced local product to add into her wedding flowers, including these poppies. Amy hallenious photography
