Wedding floral designs:The way they learn is different from person to person

See also

Currently (early April) it looks like floral design schools are approached by prospective students who want to learn wedding floral arrangements. California Flower Art Academy is not exceptional. Judging from the past experiences, from person to person the way of approaching to learning wedding flowers is different.

Some people who have already learned floral designs or already experienced European or American flower arrangements sign up directly for Wedding Party Arrangement Basic Course without joining basic program/course for fresh flower arrangements. If they already learned basic floral arrangements for wedding decorations, they often join Wedding Floral Decoration Advanced Course.

However the vast majority of people have no experiences at all in floral arrangements. These type of people are usually recommended to start from Fresh Flower Arrangement Elementary Course because it is next to impossible or very difficult to earn wedding floral design skills without basic skills of fresh flower arrangements.

Some people start from a short program called Table Arrangement Centerpiece Program. This is a one day seminar for learning 3 kinds of table arrangements that can be used for wedding table decorations. All they have to pay is only $150 (as of April 7th, 2014) covering tuition, flowers and also floral foams and container. Since table arrangement is a quite popular design that can be used for various occasions and events such as birthday party, Christmas party, Thanksgiving day or just for daily home decorations whatsoever, it is quite useful to earn skills for this type of arrangements.

There is no clear rule about FROM WHERE THEY SHOULD START LEARNING WEDDING FLORAL DECORATIONS. However the most ideal way is to earn basic flower arranging skills first of all. And only after earning basic skills, they should proceed to the next step where they join a course specializing in wedding flower arrangements.

No matter what kind of purpose they learn floral arrangements, it is so important to establish a good foundation by earning a good basic skill without which they cannot make further progress or development in their skills and techniques. Once they successfully earn a basic skill, there is lots of options for them to develop their skills. Not only wedding but also funeral floral decoration is also important if they are planning to have their own floral shop or work as a professional floral designer in the future.

If you are looking for a reliable floral design school or instructor who can offer quality instructions with hands on training of ONE ON ONE instructions, why not join California Flower Art Academy where you can enjoy semi-private class limiting number of students to no more than six per class (typical number of students per class is 3-4). California Flower Art Academy has been operating as a floral school certified by Flower Decorators Association (Tokyo Japan) since 1990 in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley (San Jose).
