I have used theknot.com for a lot of my research. It has everything that you could possibly think of for planning a wedding. One of the many features that I have explored on the knot is their wedding checklist. This list goes over what to do four to 5 months before the wedding, two to three months before the wedding, six weeks before the wedding, three to four weeks before the wedding, one to to two weeks before the wedding, the day before the wedding, the day of the wedding, and after the wedding.
Planning a wedding for film is a little bit different than planning an actual wedding, but I found a lot of the items in the four to five months before the wedding checklist helpful such as creating a budget, looking at color palettes , flowers, wedding dresses, making a folder on the computer and a binder dedicated to the wedding (or in my case film), figuring out who is going to contribute what to the wedding and so on. If you have no clue where to start planning I definitely advise going over the checklist. I suggest going over it no matter what. Even if you have already started planning there could be some items you missed or hadn’t thought about. So check it out and have fun planning your wedding. I sure am… even if my wedding is pretend.
Here is a great video explaining how to create center pieces for a wedding from onlineweddingflorist.
This video is really helpful to me because I will not have a florist to put my centerpieces together for me. Myself and my crew will be creating all the props for my film ourselves. The video will help me to save money with creating my own centerpieces in a way that will actually look good. Even if you have a florist doing the centerpieces for your wedding it is still helpful to know how exactly they do it.
I recommend checking out the rest of onlineweddingflorist’s videos because there are great tips for all different kinds of flower arrangement ideas including flower arrangements from celebrity weddings.
When it comes to flowers a great place to start getting ides is theknot.com. If you know your color palette I would suggest searching by color to get ideas, however you can also search by arrangement or by bloom.
After looking around on theknot.com I suggest going to fiftyflowers.com and searching your choice even more. Here you can select the color you want and look at all the different types of flowers in that color. I followed these steps and ended up with a few ideas for flower arrangements for the wedding in my film. Here are some of the arrangements I like, hopefully you will be able to get ideas for your color palette as well.
