Wedding Planning Tips From An Expert Florist

We LOVE weddings here at Milwaukee Flower Co. It's a joy to be included in our clients celebrations! Our team won’t just provide you flowers, but a refreshing, honest experience based off of our knowledge + passion. We truly care. Trust us and we promise we will blow your mind!

Milwaukee Flower Co. is a FULL SERVICE flower design studio. We pin all the boutonnieres, deliver the bouquets while you’re getting ready (Sally’s fav part of wedding day!), curate the ceremony decor and bring the reception to life! And when it’s all over, we will be there to take it away, composting the leftover blooms and hauling the vessels so your family and friends can enjoy the celebration without having to run around! 

One of the reasons our clients choose us is our overall vision and thoughtfulness of their wedding day. All of the details are so important to us. How will the day flow and how will it all look together.

Lots of couple ask - do you have any advice for us? See our answers to some of our most popular questions below:


1. What's your greatest wedding advice for couples?  

Couples should think of reception decor as ONE budget: linens, lighting and of course flowers. They all make a huge impact on the vibe of a space. 

2. What's the hottest trend on the horizon? 

Private ceremony with close family and friends, followed by a small intimate dinner and then the next day hosting a giant party for everyone you know! It takes a ton off stress off the couple.

3. What trend are you so over? 

I'm gonna say it, hold on to your seat. We’re over blush. Don't get me wrong, a touch of blush is lovely but I'm over it as a focal color. Loving champagne these days instead.

4. What should a couple do to make sure their floral experience is a success? 

Hire an expert and let them run with your vision. A knowledgeable florist will execute beyond your wildest dreams, a little trust goes a long way.

5. What are your tips for couples when it comes to planning the florals for their wedding? 

The guest table decor makes the biggest statement and is the best way to spend your budget. Do not get carried away with accent table decor, those tables are often on the outside of the room and have the least foot traffic. 

6. Is there anything they shouldn't do?

Mens attire should not dictate your reception decor. Just because they are wearing navy suits it doesn't mean you need a navy napkin.
