Put water in sparkling clean vases
Flower food powder is put into the water
Quick dip (makes flowers take up water) liquid solution is put into a bowl
Flower bunch is unwrapped
Leaves are removed from any part of stem that will go under water
Bottom of stems are cut
Flowers are arranged, (if arranged in foam, container with foam securely taped had to have been done ahead of time) misted and placed back in refrigerator, often covered to make sure that no moisture is lost
Flowers are then wrapped as prettily as we can wrap them in our signature paper, cards and ribbons attached and off it goes in our air conditioned truck with a separate air conditioning zone/unit especially for the flowers' comfort for delivery as a gift, or for unloading and placing precisely where they are supposed to be placed at a wedding.
For bouquets, we then remind the bride and bridesmaids exactly how to carry their bouquets to make for the best photos from their photographer
We pin on corsages and boutonierres, tie on pew bows etc.
After the wedding, we try to get as much mileage out of the flowers as possibly, so we often re-use the ceremony flowers during the reception, and cocktail hour centerpieces to decorate cake tables etc. After we do any flower moving, we go home!
