婚禮佈置的問題 Wedding decorations with Euro-style

有時接到香港的新娘子對婚禮佈置的問題,的確很難應對。沒有任何準備,基本上只會看你有沒有相片,草草就說有沒有套包,一模一模的就是了。要的是一張膠花圍邊的枱,一張大枱花,一張跳起的婚禮相片。幸好今年少了「易拉架」和「人形紙牌」。所以,當你一年去幾個朋友的婚禮,的確,沒有甚麼佈置是會令人深刻的。

另一種的佈置,就是Sell 太多飾物,面串串的珍珠簾,鳥籠,喜字,佈置的形式是登台feel。套包價,幾個人搬搬抬抬,物盡其用的上演十次八次,你付的是它們的運費和儲倉費。說三四萬的佈置,『豪』一晚。

有時亦得到有很明確的垂詢,覺得可以將設計交給我們。公司的主題色, 婚禮的主題色,婚帖的顏色,場地的環景,我們得到後會提議用甚麼花合付預算。花得物有所值,多少用花視乎場地而定,在小小的餐廳用大量特色的花,或是舞台式樹木形的大柱子。不一定鮮花玫瑰花多,而設計特色反而是主要,不要logo的絲帶,hard-sell 又千篇一律。

膠花/絲花的成本和鮮花的成本分別,只是因為絲花可以用上十次八次,在價錢上所以便宜,因為款式可能而用上幾年,借給你又不价懷同一模一樣的,可以十分低成本。鮮花可能會貴上幾倍,要有水份,要有手功,不能預製而要即晚起,不到婚宴之時可能感覺是怎樣。相信你的花店師傳懂你的要求,可能香港人沒有這種耐性。港人日日返工任老細魚肉,邊度搵精神 DIY,所以要你做佈置,你只會不斷說要『牡丹』花,沒有其它idea 啦。做照顧問可以好頭痕。

西式婚禮佈置由五千元起。

花店的選擇﹣不會有意料之外的結婚花球!

Take advice from your florist, no surprises on the big day!



一生一次結婚的大日子,當然嚮往有如仙子一般,手持花球,浪漫動人。選擇花球,只會看看相簿及價錢,草草就算,從不知個中花球是有何價錢上的分別,案圖樣式花店不會通知你花材的替代,往往大日子到的時候,眼見手持的花球有天壤之別,又驚喜又怒,破壞了高興的日子。

1。花的顏色及花球大小

花的顏色品種十分之多,不同價錢的花材亦有相同的顏色。相片的尺寸有些取巧,拿出來的花球十分小巧,得不到想像中的多花的款式,亦都要留意。 一般大的花球有9"-10"寸,伴娘7"寸, 身材小的新娘,用鐵線wire 的花球,身型碩大的,要slim 的花球,手持兩枝蝴蝶蘭即可 。 手束花的腳直徑不大過2.5"寸,有時候,看見一些粗腳大到不得了,拿不住那般沉重,是花店選錯了組合太粗大的花材啦!

Typical color combination 一般顏色組合:
White / Cream
Red & Green
Champagne
Yellow & Green
Purple
Pink
Green

問花店提供不同花材的照片,從中知道你將會有的花球樣子,不會出事!



2。花材出口地及季節性的選擇

香港入口的花材來自世界各地,價錢不同,以中國由陸路進口最化算。荷蘭,新西蘭,南非,南美等地都是以空運入口,成本高,所以貴。香港見到的花有時候可以一年四季都有,原因是春天用荷蘭的花,到冬天靠入口新西蘭的花,所以花材不論是春夏秋冬,年中斷貨半年又會再出現另一個春天。

Holland $$$$
New Zealand $$$
China $
south Africa $$$
taiwan $

當造的花材又與不當做的時間有天壤之別,例如夏天的荷蘭鬱金香要溫室種植,成本及供應少,比平時一定貴一倍。在你定下大日子的同時,不仿留意那些是當造的花材,可以得到好又扺用的心水花色!不合時又貴,做出來的不是好看貨色,不要勉強!

物色你的主題可以跟據季節不同的花,留下深刻印象。

春天,牡丹,較剪蘭,鬱金香,風信子
夏天,向日葵,紅掌,蕙蘭,馬蹄蘭
秋天,大理花,雞冠花
冬天,水仙,朱頂蘭,聖誕紅,


3。多種混合或獨立單色

花的價錢有時候可以是在預算之外,要削開支,可以保留主花,其它花用便宜的相襯。伴娘的花球可以用顏色一樣,便宣大量的花例如康乃馨,大陽菊之類,用特別的絲帶裝飾效果亦是十分有個性的,不會老土。

獨立的花(solo flowers),例如馬蹄蘭,鬱金香,可以單獨做成一花球,不用其它襯花。使用多種襯花,尤其是荷蘭的獨特花材,是會貴很多的。

Simple chic (solo flowers) $$
multiple colors and textures $$$$ 
China flowers only $$
Holland / imported flowers only $$$$$




4。後備的方案

花期的供應不定時,天氣等等因數,如遇上某些花的顏色缺貨,你亦要做後備的方案。花的顏色偶有深淺色,那是正常的,但是不能供應的時候,是不會有預兆的。你可以問花店後備的選擇,要避開不想要的花材和顏色,大日子不要犯錯啊!可以從顏色換上別的花材,牡丹轉美玫,紅色改白色等等給花店做個準備。


要多些聽花店的意見啊!花店不是吃錢的,手工及花材都是要價錢高低的因數。當你清楚自己的要求和找到手工好的花店,都是值得的。反而,草草半年下單子,不知花價亦付錢,要是花價上升,花店亦會不夠款項,只用頂替,吃虧是自己呢!You get what you pay for!

Go green! Wedding Favour tips 綠色回禮




























結婚的回禮不外付是朱古力或是小熊公子,用不著就丟掉,不太環保。假若你是喜愛植物,可以考慮以荷蘭小盆栽做回禮,既環保,亦可做與別不同的場地佈置,婚宴後賓客可以拿走留為記念就是了,省錢亦不會浪費啊! 

It's time to think outside the box now for the idea of decorations. Consider decorated plants in funky pots. Not only you can get a decent-size plant for the same money as a small flower arrangement , but they make great gifts afterward, stretching your budget further. They can set the scence and transform your wedding from an ordinary event to an extraordinary affair that will keep people talking long after you've flown off on honeymoon.

Tips on your Perfect bouquet!




一生人一次的大日子,對自己的婚禮,不能不親力親為。婚紗,結婚介子及花球是新娘子當日最難忘在身邊的事物,成為永遠你有一像徵你獨特的婚禮。婚紗及鑽介,當然可以永久保存,鮮花花球就不可以。但鮮花煥人的記憶,每次看到花店的玫瑰牡丹,心中就會憶起婚禮上自己的捧花,和十分自信的一句「我願意」!

花球的價錢可以分別很大。不想要套包的捧花,千遍一律的,又要半年前付錢,不知從何入手。有些牌子的花店,印滿牌子的絲帶太hard sell,剛到過別人的婚禮,當然不想照搬。新娘子不單要煩惱價錢,是否自己可以找到完美的花店當顧問幫你打點,並且價錢不超預算,實在很難。以下是有小貼士馬上做醒目的新娘子啦!

1)你心目中的顏色?
如果說橙色,黃色的花是夏天的婚禮的,那麼冬天的婚禮是紅色,銀色,和紫藍色。粉紅色和素白色又是熱門的喜愛!
找出你最喜愛的顏色,黃/綠,紅/白,白/綠,黃/橙?


2)心目中的主題?
主題可以是向日葵的盛夏,可以是紅葉的秋天,和灰白,和酒紅的冬天。可以是熱情的紅橙黃色,可以收斂含蓄的紫藍。花球是反映你的性格和品味,真要花一點心思。


3)雜誌的相片
雜誌的相片的確可以更具體化你的要求,可能是你不懂的新奇獨特的花,你可以告訴你的花店是否可以使用,顏色是否可以轉換等等。模特兒的衣飾是否和你的相符,A-line 的或是拖尾的長裙,有不同的花球配搭。


3)找花店洽詢
不只要看照片,認真的花店會提供你心目中的價錢和樂於聆聽你的要求。當然你亦要對花店的手工有一定的了解,你亦應告訴花店要或是不要某某花種,例如康乃馨等等。花店有需要用其它花材替代,又或是花材的顏色差異,花店都會解答十分詳細。不同的季節有不同的花,如炎炎夏日,就不太適合鬱金香,花頭比較小而且太早開。一個月之前打聽你心儀的花店,看看是否得到你要求的設計!


4)議價
不要套包的價錢,只因為小小的便宜而屈服,玫瑰就是,或是某某花就是,不要便宜方便的即食套餐!議價是可以的,花材有便宜有貴,如果你可以替代花材,使用小百合,菊花,康乃馨做填充花,又比使用繡球花便宜得多。一般手綁的花球,要求有層次,多至4﹣5種不同的花材,$800 ﹣$1500都是合理的。小小的襯花可能比起常用的玫瑰花貴幾倍,但是有不同的襯花,可以提升和特出設計,不要太慳一二百的差異。如你將會使用其它花做佈置,可以省用一點,但如主角的花球就無謂慳啦!
