Those who have some experience in floral arrangements are often engaged in doing floral designs not only for enjoying themselves in home decorations but also offering flower arranging services to other people or customers. If they have learned regular flower arrangements or experienced in doing floral decorations, they COULD offer their services to some extent.
However when it comes to doing wedding floral arrangements, story is a little bit different. As far as small size of table arrangements displayed in the center of group table are concerned, it is not very difficult. However making a large scale arrangements decorating a head table needs a little bit higher level of arranging skill.
Also there are many arrangements that cannot be found in regular floral decorations. For instance, for making floral decorations for ceremony chair, a totally different type of idea and skill are required. Many people are familiar with typical table arrangements. However chair decorations are not popular except for wedding ceremonies.
Arch decoration is another example. In order to make this type of arrangement, another kind of skills with totally different concept is required only because floral decorations in arch shape is seldom used in our daily life.
How about hand held floral arrangements ? Bridal bouquet is one of the typical items which can enhance the beauty of bride. Unless they learn how to make bouquets, it is a little bit difficult to make a sophisticated bouquet which is mandatory for weddings. Making a boutonniere for a bridegroom is the same story.
Another popular floral arrangement used for a bride is corsage. It is usually mounted on the wrist of bride. This also requires a designing skill which is totally different from ordinary floral arrangements. The last hand-held item for a bride is called pomander that is also known as kissing ball. The design is done in a shape of round ball. Due to its special shape, they usually use a floral foam like a ball. So many stems of flowers are inserted into a ball shaped floral foam. And it is also a very important item decorating a bride at a wedding.
Just for your information, pomanders are used not only for being hand-held by a bride but also for being displayed on the table as a centerpiece decoration.
There are so many types of wedding floral arrangements that cannot be made without special decorating skills. The easiest way to earn such skills is taking lessons from a reliable instructor who is well talented and experienced in floral designing.
