Create some flower power

THE use of flowers and bouquets for the bride and bridal party, the reception and even the bridal car are becoming more and more important in Cambodian wedding planning and one of the main thoughts is to carry a theme throughout the entire day with the floral arrangements.

There is nothing lovelier than a reception venue decorated in the same theme as your bridal bouquets. Many reception venues will include flowers in their packages and make sure they will fit in with what you are having in your bouquets and that they will suit the style of wedding you have selected.

Your reception venue will be happy to arrange all your floral needs and follow your ideas and stay within a budget that will provide colour and creativity to your special day.

Flowers and floral arrangements can be quite a large part of the wedding budget so look at cost effective options and there are some which still have a stunning effect such as adding floating candle bowls with the accompanying flowers from your bouquet at the reception; vases filled with your favourite blooms; the simplicity but romance of rose petals scattered over the tablecloths or placing an individual flower next to each table place card setting.

Be creative, colourful and romantic and if you choose wisely you can keep within a reasonable budget.
