Dos and Don'ts of Destination Weddings

We believe there are fewer places more gorgeous for wedding ceremonies than our very own peachtree state; however, we do appreciate all that a destination wedding can offer blushing brides. As you have probably heard, Atlanta’s florist, Peachtree Petals, is here to help brides in the Atlanta metro area with free consultations, custom made bouquets, decor, hairpieces, delivery and set-up on the big day, and more. What you might not know though is this Buckhead florist can be of assistance as you plan a destination wedding. Here are some dos and don’ts when planning a destination wedding.

Don’t worry about paying for the travel expenses of a wedding party. According to, it is not customary for the bride and groom to provide transportation to and from the wedding destination for the wedding party. While DestinationBride mentions some couples do offer to pay for the hotel accommodations for their honored attendees, most do not. While we suggest you don’t worry about paying for the travel expenses or lodging, we do suggest being clear up front with your wedding party about the anticipated expenses for the destination.

Do give as much notice as possible for guests. Unlike a local wedding, guests will need to plan a bit more in advance to attend your wedding. This planning includes financial planning for travel expenses, requesting time off of work, securing child or pet care for the time they will be away from home, and more. In order to give your guests as much advanced notice as possible, we encourage you to send your save the date cards as soon as you've selected your date and location. Wedding planning sites like DestinationBride and WeddingWire recommend sending your save the dates at least four to five months in advance.

Do include as much information about the wedding as possible when sending invitations. We've recently seen a shift in more detailed invitations with items such as a guide for guests for fun things to do in between the ceremony and the reception, maps, couple trivia, and lodging info. More detailed invitations are especially crucial for destination weddings. We recommend you include location, name and address of venue and lodging, and any excursions or activities you have planned for that time. If you intend to have a reception once you return home from the destination locale, this would be a great bit of information to include in the invitations, and could make guests feel less obligated to attend the destination ceremony but still a part of your special day.

Do schedule a free consultation with's number on Atlanta wedding florist, Peachtree Petals. The ingenious florists at Peachtree delight in working with Atlanta area brides with all types wedding ceremonies and receptions in mind, including destination weddings. As Peachtree Petals works toward creating special destination packages for brides, we want you to be among the satisfied brides who have used Peachtree Petals.

Wedding Splurges You Can Live Without

According to a poll conducted by online wedding planning site The Knot, the average cost of a wedding in the United States in 2013 was $29,858. With such a sizeable price tag, brides are constantly looking for ways to save themselves some money as they plan their special day. Staff writer Davia Montaya for Bridal Guide has outlined what brides say are splurges they've opted to live without in order to save room in their budget. We've compiled some of our favorite pieces of advice for you.

The Champagne Toast: I love the tradition of a champagne toast and besides the opportunity to see gorgeous floral designs, sipping on champs is something I look forward to when RSVPing for a wedding. While this is one of my favorites, Bridal Guide lists is as the number one wasteful wedding splurge, and rightfully so. Most guests prefer to make a toast with a beverage of their choice, and I've seen plenty of glasses of champagne go to waste as guests opt for their beverage over the fizzy fluted drink. A simple way to cut costs in your wedding is to skip the champagne toast and ensure all guests have a drink they'll enjoy in their hand.

The Cake: I advocate for desserts at all events and a wedding is certainly no exception to this; however, I will say some of the best receptions I've attended have served other dessert options in lieu of a giant fancy cake. Many brides are bucking the tradition of the quintessential tiered sugary concoction adorned with everything from rosebuds to edible jewels in favor of single-serving desserts. These new desserts are more cost efficient for brides as the serving size can easily be managed to tailor the number of RSVPs, and can include options for guests who may not like traditional wedding cake. Couples are even scratching the cake as a way to make this portion of the day personalized for them. Couples can opt for desserts that represent their favorites like milk and cookies, fruit pizza, or ice cream from the shop where they had their first date. Cutting the cake doesn't mean having to skimp on dessert, it just means saving money and creating a unique experience for your guests.

Table Service: A beautiful place setting can create a luxurious experience for guests but obsessing over the cut of a crystal goblet or the gold leafing on a charger simply is not worth the headache and ultimately the cost. Bridal Guide suggests thinking of other ways to beautify the place setting for your guests and we couldn't think of a better way to do this than through the use of flowers.

Guest Favors: I have incurred wedding guest guilt at many weddings as I recklessly tear through a perfectly packaged favor of personalized M&Ms only to then think about the time, effort, and money it took the couple to personally assemble these favors. I will even be wracked with empathy wedding guest guilt as I see guest after guest leaving behind their ribbon tied bubble bottles. Honestly, do people even get how long it takes to tie those tiny ribbons?! In an effort to save money on your guest favors and ensure they get used, Bridal Guide suggests thinking local and offering edible favors guests can take home, enjoy, and then go out and buy in their neighborhood. Peachtree Petals can definitely help with this, too!

While many splurges might not be worth it once your special day is all said and done, one splurge we're sure you won't regret are gorgeous flowers. The FTD Certified Master Florists at Atlanta's Peachtree Petals are eager to meet with area brides to discuss their vision for their day while working with a budget of any size. Named Atlanta's top wedding florist by TheKnot and, The Atlanta florist is experienced in the world of wedding flowers and can assist you in everything from bouquets to decor to favors and more.

Finding The Perfect Flower Girl Flowers

One of the wedding trends that is changing and expanding more than ever are flowers for flower girls. Traditionally a flower girl would carry a simple basket and toss petals ahead of the bride as she’s walking down the aisle. Within the last decade pomanders for flower girls have also grown in popularity. More recently however, we’re starting to see more unique trends for these small members of the bridal party take shape. We at Peachtree Petals, Atlanta’s premier wedding florist, have compiled some of our favorite ideas for flower girls to share with you.

Mini Bouquet: A mini bouquet mimics the shape, design, and color palette of the bridesmaids’ bouquet. Typically a mini bouquet for the flower girl will have more petite, dainty flowers than the bridesmaids. This option is perfect for a flower girl who wants to be more included or might be very close to the bride--it will make her feel like one of the girls.

Single Stems: Having your little ladies walk down the aisle carrying a single stem that matches the bridesmaid’s bouquet will compliment the rest of the bridal party as well as their petite stature. We like single blooms like alliums which give a whimsical feel the the wedding march. Other flowers that work well in this style are Delphinium, Calla lily, Tiger lily, and Hibiscus. You can even combine the mini bouquet and single stem trend for a truly memorable wedding march. Flower girls could have a bouquet of single stems to pass out to those in attendance rather than throw petals, thus creating a truly unique experience.

Floral Hair Accessories: We love wedding flowers in all shapes and sizes. While we may be a bit biased, we believe no wedding is complete without flowers. For brides who might want to move away from the traditional flower girl basket, floral hair accessories are a great option. These accessories are perfect for an outdoor wedding. Additionally, we have a nice selection of hair pieces. The florists at Peachtree Petals are also available to create one of a kind hair accessories for your little ladies. These handcrafted pieces will be unique to your day and tailor made to fit within your theme, venue, and color selection.

Balloon Bouquet: While we adore our flowers, we think the idea of a balloon bouquet is very original! The giant balloons in neutral tones are perfectly complimented by the flower petals creating the aisle way for the bride. Though extremely unique, Atlanta’s number one wedding florist can even assist you in selecting balloons for your day.

Perfect Theme: We’re seeing more and more flower girls carrying trinkets which match the wedding theme. As we see the vintage glam theme reach its peak popularity in 2014, this is a perfect way to incorporate that theme into your wedding. Vintage teapots or small birdcages filled with flowers are a perfect addition. Seashells are also great for coastal weddings.

Flower with a Purpose: We love the romanticism of sending a love note to the groom just before the bride emerges. Signs for ring bearers and flower girls to carry have seen a lot of popularity recently, but we like the idea of a private note carried from the flower girl to the groom. This can also work in reverse with the flower girl receiving a single stem from the groom with a special note for the bride to read just before she steps onto the aisle.

With the many new wedding trends emerging this year we’re excited to see how these trends will affect the rest of the wedding party, especially darling flower girls. Whatever your vision is for your wedding, Peachtree Petals, Atlanta’s preeminent wedding florist, is here to assist you with your big day. Voted TheKnot and’s number one wedding floral vendor in the Atlanta area, the staff at Peachtree Petals are not only experienced with wedding decor, but look forward to working with couples to plan their special day. Working with all styles, budgets, and
