Edge Floral Event Designers

Floral arrangements are the perfect way to set the tone or add a pop of color to your wedding, but knowing what will make the kind of statement you are looking for can be tricky. As a third generation florist, Bill Enright, of Edge Floral Event Designers, is filled with tips on accomplishing your vision.

How did you get your start in floral design?

I grew up surrounded by flowers, as I am a third generation floral designer. I was raised working in my grandmothers, and eventually my mother’s flower shop. Having worked with flowers my whole life, I can’t imagine doing anything else.

Where do you draw inspiration from?

My sources of inspiration vary widely. Not only do I look at emerging designs within the industry, but I also get ideas from a variety of different magazines. I like to see what trend are out there, and how they might influence my floral design.

What advice do you have for brides who do not have much knowledge about flowers and are not sure what they want?

My best advice for brides who are unsure of what they are looking for is to look through magazines and blogs to draw inspiration.  Once you have a color or a style in mind, it is easy for us to help tease out your vision and make it a reality.  As with all wedding décor, it is important for brides to choose flowers that they love, and not just what is trendy.
