Congratulations, you are engaged!
Now….. Welcome to the exciting, fast paced, sometimes confusing world of wedding planning. At Kittelbergers our Wedding and Events Designers have helped hundreds of brides make their weddings distinctive and unforgettable. Combined with their creativity and expertise with all things floral, through their years of experience our wedding coordinators have gained an extensive understanding of the wedding planning process. Advice from professionals who work with a wide variety of vendors can be a valuable resource.
How to start:
-Develop a preliminary guest list
-Set up a budget, but prepare to be flexible with some items. Give some thought to the type of reception you would like, since this is the biggest part of the budget.
-Give thought to theme you want for your wedding. The season that your wedding is scheduled for is important as it will affect the cost of your preferred flowers.
-Select your favored ceremony location. We have been lucky to work at amazing venues, indoor and outdoor, such as Colgate Divinity, where both ceremony and reception can take place.

-Start making decisions regarding your Bridal party and their roles in your wedding
-Start shopping for Wedding and Bridesmaids dresses
-Gather recommendations from friends regarding other vendor such as:
-Stationer/ Printer for invitations
After you have selected and ordered your bridesmaids dresses, consider an accent color, and now you can work out the floral details with your preferred florist.
A “general rule” is that the wedding flowers should be 10-15% of your total budget
We recommend working with a professional florist that can offer design ideas and options to fit your style and personal budget. Professional florists have years of training and will help you to select flowers and decor that perfectly suit your theme.
If wedding flowers are intimidating to you or you don’t know much about flowers, a professional florist can help you design your look from the ground up. As with all vendors that you work with for your wedding a florist’s experience and reputation should put you at ease on your wedding day, so you can enjoy without worry!
We can’t wait to hear from you-
