Flowers are used for various purposes and wedding occasion is one such beautiful purpose. Weddings and flowers go together; there is no wedding without flowers. Flowers make a wedding more beautiful, different, and distinct from other occasions. Flowers are both the centerpieces and accessories of the wedding decorations. It is the epitome of beauty and elegance. They bring freshness with their fragrance and create an atmosphere of festivity. One person who works well with flowers and comes up with some beautiful & amazing creations, Jennifer Pryor with Weddings By Jennifer.
I’ve known Jennifer for years. She married into the Pryor family, whom I grew up with and their family is like a second family to me.
How long have you been in the industry? 22 years in the floral industry
What made you get into the floral industry? I love flowers and creating beautiful arrangements and seeing the joy it brings people!
What is your favorite thing about working with brides? My favorite thing about working with brides is getting to know more about them and their “story”. This allows us to incorporate special personal touches into their wedding flowers and add sentimental value.
What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to weddings? I guess my only pet peeve is when it comes to comparison shopping. In my experience, when there are drastic differences in the prices for wedding flowers between vendors, you are more than likely not comparing the same things. There is so much more involved with wedding flowers than just the price of the individual stems. A lot of research is done in ordering the flowers from the best vendors and a lot of prep work has to be done so that everything is perfect!
What is your favorite thing about weddings? My favorite thing about weddings is being a part of the Bride and Groom’s special day, working together with the other vendors as we each do our part and seeing how it all comes together.
What is your favorite wedding detail you’ve ever seen or created? love using material from the bride’s dress to wrap around the bouquet stems. I’m not sure where I found this idea but it makes it so special and of course it will always match the dress! Here is a link to a photo we did using lace from the Bride’s dress.
Biggest piece of advice to brides: My advice to brides would be to come up with a figure you are comfortable with spending on the flowers and then find the florist that you click with and instantly feel comfortable with. Having a florist you trust is much more important than finding one with the cheapest price.
