Work with a Floral Wedding Designer for Better Value

wedding tipsWhen it comes to wedding planning, there is a seemingly endless list of decisions to make, and each one of them has a dollar amount attached to it. Because it is your special day, you likely have a vision of how you want everything to look – from the dress to the cake to the flowers; you’ve been saving clippings and photos for months. Unfortunately, many brides make a critical mistake when choosing their flowers – that of simply choosing the cheapest option.

The truth of the matter is that by working with a floral wedding designer, you may get a more beautiful display for less money.

How is this possible? If a florist gives you a price substantially under everyone, corners are being cut somewhere. Whether they will be using more filler and fewer flowers, or providing floral arrangements that are not of the quality you expect, staying within a budget is no reason to sacrifice a beautiful day.

The expert floral designers at Bice’s Florist are more than florists, they are artists, and they know their art. How will you benefit? The Bice wedding consultant will listen to your needs, look at your “dream photos” and your desires for your wedding. Then, they will provide you with three proposals. First, you will receive a quote for the flowers exactly as you requested, without regard to budget. However, you will also receive additional proposals – utilizing their expert knowledge of all species of flowers; they will suggest bouquets and arrangements that will give you the same look and feel that you are imagining but at a more affordable price level. That is, your flowers will be just as beautiful as you ever dreamed, but fit within your budget and give you maximum value. A floral designer can guide you to more cost effective options, which will allow you to achieve the luxurious floral ambiance you expect and deserve.

Don’t trust your wedding to the lowest bidder – let us work with you to create the perfect wedding flowers that will wow your guests and give you the wedding of your dreams.

Fort Worth Summer Weddings

summer weddingsFort Worth is known for hot summer days. Still, the beauty of the outdoors beckons couples every year as they plan their weddings during these steamy months. If you are a Fort Worth couple looking for the perfect outdoor event , experts have plenty of suggestions to make sure your day is as comfortable as possible for you and your guests – as well as beautifully appointed with fresh looking flowers that don’t wilt in the heat.


  • Consider holding the event in the late afternoon or just before sunset, when the sun is no longer high in the sky. Make sure when positioning the guest seating to make sure they are not looking into the setting sun.
  • If rain is a possibility – and it usually is – look into covered porticos or patios, or hold the event under a tent, allowing for shade as well.
  • Have drinks available for your guests from the time they arrive; water in decorative glasses or non-alcoholic, refreshing sparkling drinks can be passed around before and after the ceremony.
  • If your photos and ceremony will be held outside, you may wish to have two sets of bridal and bridesmaid bouquets – one for early photos, one for the ceremony. In this way, your bouquet will not begin to wilt before you walk down the aisle.
  • Choose hardy flowers that do well in hot temperatures- including roses, orchids and calla lilies. Keep them in water for as long as possible, and create centerpieces and venue décor in large vases filled with water. Fill in bouquets with succulents or eucalyptus leaves which hold up well during hot afternoons.
