Weddings

Quinn's Flowers has provided floral decor for many weddings and we are always on the cutting edge with new designs and ideas. To set up an appointment to meet with one of our floral designers please contact us today at 215-468-2881. Before coming to meet us look through bridal books and floral guides. Sketch ideas, cut out pictures, or take photographs of flower you like and share them with us. Seeing your ideas and personal style will help Quinn's translate your concepts and special requests into workable floral designs and arrangements that are just right for you. It will be helpful if you know the colors and style of the gowns you and your bridesmaids will be wearing. Bring pictures of your gown and the bridesmaids dresses, along with swatches of fabric if you have them available. During your initial consultation with Quinn's, we will discuss specific design ideas that fit both your personal style and budget and we will make arrangements for us to visit both the ceremony and reception sites if needed.

Wedding Bouquet Trends

Today's wedding bouquets are more personal than ever, running the gamut from classic all-white formal arrangements to unique designs featuring brightly colored flowers. The following are four popular bouquet styles.

Nosegays

Round clusters of flowers are a very trendy style of bridal bouquet. Nosegays can vary in sophistication and are therefore a good choice for any wedding.

Cascade

Flowers that descend below the main portion of the bouquet design. The voluptuousness of the bouquet is often the main feature of the wedding costume. Cascade bouquets are most often used in formal and traditional weddings.

Hand-Tied

Florists create this by placing the stems of the flowers, foliage and accessories in their hand and wrapping them around the center of the design until they are securely fastened. These arrangements are designed to show the natural growth of the stems, which are often wrapped in ribbon.

Contemporary

These bouquets are inspired by unconventional ideas, styles and patterns and are designed with no specific geometric form. They are usually created with flower that have definite form and add character to a bouquet.

Flowers To Be Worn

Boutonnieres

Boutonnieres are an added touch to make a special event more memorable. Boutonnieres, worn on the lapel, can be customized to match an individual's attire or coordinate with your date's corsage.

Corsages

Corsages are an extra touch to make a special event or person even more memorable. Body flower can be customized to match an individual's personality, clothing, favorite colors, or the even for which they are intended.

Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance should I contact Quinn's when ordering wedding flowers?

Flowers are one of the most important aspects of your wedding day. They set the mood and tone for the event and will be remembered for years to come. A good rule of thumb is to contact your florist at least three months in advance. However, if your wedding is going to be an exceptionally elaborate event, take place during peak wedding season or fall on a holiday, then six months to a year is not too soon to contact your florist. This will allow Quinn's to begin looking for any props or specialty items you might need. Wedding flowers can be highly specific, and colors often have to be very precise, so we need advance notice to place flower orders.

Will Quinn's Flowers work within my budget?

Yes. Be honest about your budget on the initial consultation so the Quinn's know what to recommend. By taking your budget into consideration from the very beginning of the planning process, we can give you the best advice on how to place the flowers for maximum effect and what types of flowers will be the best value to achieve your desired look.

What should I bring to the flower shop when I have my wedding consultation?

The more information you can provide the better we will be prepared to offer creative suggestions. Your florist will want to create a spectacular and memorable event for you. Anything you can bring will be beneficial. Pictures that depict what you have in mind are extremely helpful. Bring a photo of your dress and a sample of the fabric or lace if you have it, as well as swatches and photos of the bridesmaids' dresses. Also think about what "style" of wedding you want. If you are not sure, we can offer suggestions based on your wedding plans so far.
