Thank you J.

Spring 2020 Weddings: What's a Couple to Do?

3. April 2020 17:59 by Phillip's Flowers | 0 Comments

Couples planning their wedding for this Spring, are faced with an unprecednted challenge.  Safety guidelines designed to combat COVID-19 make social gatherings and food service virtually out of the question, travel is becoming increasingly difficult, some critical wedding vendors may be temporarily closed, and no one knows when precautions will be lifted.   What's a couple to do?

Whatever you do, don't panic.  We'll get through this together.  But, If you're facing this dilema, here are a few valuable tips and options to consider.

Contact your vendors, starting with your venues, hotels (if any), food providers, and florist.  Most will be very accommodating, offer suggestions, and even tentatively hold alternate dates for you in the future.  Many will also be glad to apply some or all of your deposit to a future date.

Don't be in too much of a rush to reschedule.  We'll all know a lot more in weeks to come.  And, don't feel you're alone.  Thousands and thousands of couples all over America are having to adjust their wedding plans just like you.

Can't wait to get married?  Consider a small private ceremony now and a large post-wedding reception later.  For the ceremony, you can probably include your maid of honor, best man, officiant, and parents, if you wish.  Your other guests will understand and many will even be grateful.  If you pursue this option, consider making it a virtual wedding by streaming your ceremony to family and friends, so they can share the moment with you regardless of their location, age, or health concerns.

The good news?  According to WeddingPro, 96% of couples facing the Spring 2020 challenge are rescheduling at least their reception, with roughly 60% opting for July through October, 15% shifting to 2021, and 23% still deciding on a date.  So, if you're thinking about doing the same, you're definitly in good company.  Most importantly, your wedding can still be a truly beautiful and memorable event, and years from now you'll have a great story to tell your kids and grandkids, too.

Old St. Pat's and Crystal Tree Wedding

30. March 2020 17:43 by Phillip's Flowers | 0 Comments

We loved being a part of this exquisite wedding at Old Saint Patrick's Church in Chicago and the Crystal Tree Golf and Country Club in Orland Park.  The bride and groom, Monica and Tom, were incredible, and their wedding flowers were, too.  Monica carried an elegant bouquet of graceful mini calla lilies.  Other flowers the couple selected included Amelia roses, white tulips, and white hydrangeas.  The reception had an elegant white and gold theme with alternating height centerpieces, Italian Ruscus accents, and romantic candlelight throughout.  And, the wedding cake was truly a work of art!  See more of this stunning wedding, captured by Andre LeCour and recognized by Weddings Chicago, at Clementine Custom Events.  Congratulations Monica and Tom.  Your wedding day was spectacular!

Botanical Beauty at Hyatt Lodge Oak Brook

Lauren and Alan discovered  each other online.  After a first date at Blackthorn Pub in Mt. Greenwood, they became fast friends.  Over time the relationship grew.  Alan popped the question during a family trip to Michigan in December 2019, and Lauren said, "Yes."  Their beautiful wedding was the following November, at Christ the King Catholic Church in Chicago, followed by a stunning candlelight reception at the Hyatt Lodge in Oak Brook.  For her floral designs, Lauren chose a natural, botanical theme, with roses, garden roses, cybidium orchids, delphinium, stock, blue thistle, Dusty Miller, echeveria, and more.  Friends and family celebrated with great food, live music, lots of dancing, and a wonderful candy station, too. It was all captured beautifully by Victoria and her team at Sprung Photo.  Congratulations Lauren and Alan.  Your wedding was wonderful, and you are, too!
