Create a Photo Op
As a beauty editor, I love flower crowns but decided not to wear one for my big day. (More on the accessory I did wear later!) So when my florist, Lee Vazquez, presented this idea of creating a giant floral wreath for the perfect photo op, I was instantly sold. If you can find a way to work a photo setting — be it this, a wall of roses, etc. — into your budget, it will make your event unique.
Also, hire vendors you creatively vibe with! I was on a strict budget for florals and hired Lee because she had innovative ways on how to stretch what I could spend and reuse different pieces throughout the night.
