Elite Circle Wedding Florist in Arizona | Butterfly Petals
categories: floral inspiration, Meet Our Friends, Trends, Wedding Inspiration

To say that Mandi, owner and principal designer of Butterfly Petals, is creative or talented doesn’t quite do her work justice. Mandi is a visionary. She doesn’t do what everyone else does—she works with materials that are completely unexpected and somehow infuses her passion for desert inspired floral into every single thing she touches. By the time you’re finished reading this, you’ll want this well-known Elite Circle wedding florist in Arizona to design for you, we just know it! But first, you simply MUST get to know Mandi and the philosophy that drives Butterfly Petals…

What do you think makes Butterfly Petals a stand-out wedding florist in Arizona? In a world where creatives are encouraged to only design to a brand, I decided I love flowers too much to limit myself to one style or look and feel. Yes, we’re known for our rustic desert work, but we’re extremely flexible and can design around anyone’s preferred look and feel. We have a huge inventory of vases and containers to suit everyone’s tastes whether it’s rustic, elegant or modern. I have a great team around me with their own design skill set and we can always pull something awesome together which fits our clients’ needs. We will always be known for our desert designs and I think that’s because I’m an Arizona native and can’t help myself. I have to play with cacti and textures and they seep into my work when left to my own devices.

You’re always a bit ahead of the trends and often use unique elements in your design so we’re dying to know: where do you get your inspiration from? I pay attention to design trends outside the wedding industry. If you see pillows show up in Target with palm leaves, you’re bound to start seeing inspiration shoots for weddings featuring cool tropical greenery and backgrounds. I have a giant pile of home decor catalogs clogging my mailbox, I even see the design trends on shows like Fixer Upper on HGTV. As the wood finishes change on home furnishings, the rental companies start to carry similar pieces in their inventory. It’s gone from Farm tables to upscale Pottery Barn style dining…all in the wedding world. I also try to follow international designers. The boho trend started to take off in Australia and New Zealand where they have access to all the gorgeous protea we’re starting to see in bridal bouquets. Dress designers started adding bell sleeves and everything felt a little 70s/hippy gypsy. Lo and behold, the brides stateside started taking note and suddenly the rental companies are carrying peacock chairs and oriental rugs and we’re designing with pampas grass and protea. Following bridal blogs is helpful as well but once a trend starts it can be a plague of sameness. I always want to be on to the next thing for my clients while still keeping my designs desert-friendly and funky.

What do you want clients to know about their own wedding before meeting with you in order to get the most out of your initial consultation? Know the overall look and feel you want to achieve. Don’t worry too much about zeroing in on exactly what flowers are going to be in each vase and container– instead think about how you want the wedding to feel. Think about your guests walking into the reception space-do you see rustic tables with long flowing garlands or round tables with linen and tall stately centerpieces? Think big picture and we’ll zoom in and fill in those details. It’s also key to know your venue and an approximate idea of how many guests you’ll be inviting, the size of your wedding party and your needs for ceremony, etc. We want to get the initial quotes as accurate as possible so you know what you’re in for.

How do you approach/work with clients that aren’t “flower people”? Most people aren’t flower people. Or at least, most people don’t fill their entire day with thoughts of flower types, seasonal availability, colors, etc. Don’t worry too much about knowing flowers–we’ll fill that in for you. Know the overall look and feel you’re going for and we’ll help you with the rest. If you just don’t think you want a ton of flowers or never envisioned lush floral design at your wedding–that’s ok too. Flowers add a lot but I’m very practical in my approach. Everyone is going to want something unique at their wedding or celebration and sometimes that means very clean and minimal floral.

If you could give couples planning their weddings your top piece of advice when it comes to flowers, what would you say? Pinterest is a great start but keep in mind, that like most social media, it’s now run by algorithms that feed you results based on what everyone else is pinning and drawn to. They’re pulling gorgeous photo-ready weddings from Style Me Pretty and other inspirational blogs that don’t always feature the most affordable floral designs. You’re also getting the same results 100 other clients are getting. Instead of pinning 85 photos of peony bouquets and finding out they aren’t available or are extremely expensive the time of year the wedding occurs, I’d rather my clients start with broad strokes–look for pretty bouquets in your color scheme. Know what you like or don’t like about them–whether it’s the shape or the way the colors balance with each other. It gives us the flexibility of working with mother nature to come up with designs that work in our desert climate as well as designs which suit every look, feel and budget. It also gives us a little creativity. This is what we do after all, and a little trust in your designer’s skills will give you a gorgeous result every time.

What floral trends or new floral design options are you seeing that you’re excited about? Color is coming back. We’ve been dancing around the same shades of blush, gold or peach and mint for the last several years. Gorgeous weddings every time but there’s something refreshing about a client who wants to use deep plums and fuchsia or a client who wants strong yellows. It allows us to work with floral we haven’t been using in the last few years like exotic orchids or calla lilies. Bold flowers that make a statement.

Succulent Rentals for Weddings in Phoenix | Creative Succulents
categories: favor and gift ideas, floral inspiration, for your ceremony, reception ideas, Trends, Wedding Inspiration, what's hot in rentals

We know you’ve seen succulents in wedding decor here in Arizona—whether these interesting desert plants show up in the bride’s bouquet, at the ceremony, or in table top designs, succulents are exactly what weddings in Arizona need! Considering this fact (ok, it’s an opinion but we want it to be a fact soooo bad!), we want you to know about the place to get the very best succulent rentals for weddings in Phoenix. That’s right, we said succulent RENTALS!

Meet Creative Succulents, the sister company to Elite Circle design and decor company Creative Occasions, otherwise known as your new best wedding friend!

Succulent Rentals for Weddings in Phoenix _Phoenix Bride and Groom_Arizona Wedding_Creative Succulents

Just so we’re clear, Creative Succulents creates custom succulent arrangements for events or home decor that can be rented or purchased. It’s a fairly new concept that goes in our “genius” category! We asked Corinne Carr of Creative Occasions about her newest venture:

What inspired you to include succulent designs in your collection of rental decor pieces? I have been creating faux succulent arrangements for years to personalize the decor in my home. I have always loved the elegant and clean look of a succulent arrangement; however, when shopping for them I discovered the quality and price were not cohesive. The pieces were either created with cheap looking products or the arrangements were very sparse so I started creating my own. Family and friends would come over to my house and would always ask where I purchased my arrangements. When they found out I was creating them, many requested custom pieces of their own! 

Succulent Rentals for Weddings in Phoenix _Phoenix Bride and Groom_Arizona Wedding_Creative Succulents Succulent Rentals for Weddings in Phoenix _Phoenix Bride and Groom_Arizona Wedding_Creative Succulents

We like to think of Creative Succulents as the best succulent rentals for weddings in Phoenix for a few reasons—quality and service of course— but also creativity. They will create a design in or on just about anything!

Succulent Rentals for Weddings in Phoenix _Phoenix Bride and Groom_Arizona Wedding_Creative Succulents

How do you see couples using your succulent arrangements at their weddings? There are so many ways to incorporate faux succulents into a wedding or special event! We use high end succulents, so they look authentic up close. They work perfectly in a bouquet or centerpiece. They can be added to a ceremony arch, arbor or chuppah. Another great place is the beginning or the end of an aisle. Incorporating live flowers is always an option too. This allows you to bring in your color pops, textures and that fresh flower smell!

Another thing we really appreciate about Creative Succulents is that they’re constantly designing new decor pieces and make a variety of types of arrangements; they create large free-standing pieces, small table top pieces, wall decor designs, etc. making them the most flexible succulent rentals for weddings in Phoenix.

Can clients customize the designs? Of course! Customization is what we are all about! We love creating unique, one of a kind arrangements. In fact we even have clients who drop off the vases or unique containers they have found and voilà! We work our magic and turn it into an unforgettable masterpiece.

You’ll appreciate that Creative Succulents offers a wide range of containers as well so depending on your wedding style (or rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, etc.), Creative Succulents can be your one and only place for succulent rentals for weddings in Phoenix.

Which design is your favorite? I love all of them! I won’t send anything out that I am not proud to say I designed. I don’t have one specific favorite because they are all so different and unique. Every time I am asked to create a new piece it seems to become my favorite. I was recently asked by a local planner to create an arrangement in a copper vase. I located the perfect size container that will be on a 72-inch table and created the “Scarlet”. It turned out amazing. To pull together the look for their event they are even getting the linens from our sister company, Creative Occasions. I am very proud of the way it turned out and excited to make 30 for their 300 person event!

What are some decor trends you’re seeing for 2017 that you’re particularly excited about? As for trends, the concrete pots and also the copper or metallic pots are a huge hit. Although we love designing arrangements in unique vases, we love that industrial and modern look. Another “succute” trend are small succulents for wedding favors! Your guests can use them as decor for their own office or home. Succulents and green plants are making a huge come back and we are loving it!

Wedding Invitation Trends for 2017
categories: the paper chase, Trends, Wedding Inspiration

Since wedding stationery has progressed from a simple invitation into full-circle stationery “suites”, it’s important to know what the trends are and what new designs and options are available to you. Our Elite Circle stationers have been in the business for years and know what’s in and what’s out. They’ve graciously shared their trend insights to give you an idea of what to expect when you go about choosing your wedding stationery for your 2017/2018 wedding:  

Celebrations in Paper: I am seeing a lot more great quality stock and tons of foil.  So where in the past a bride would order an invitation with either thermography or letterpress for the text and print their names only in foil, now they want all printing done in foil.  It’s a gorgeous look.

Be in Love Designs: I’m seeing couples using an insert called a web card that refers guests to a website for wedding information and online RSVPing. Another trend I am seeing is either poster sized menus or programs instead of one per person.

Designing/choosing wedding stationery is one aspect of wedding planning that many couples look forward to- you get to choose paper colors, styles, shapes, wording, etc. alongside your stationer and maybe it’s just us, but we think that sounds like fun! Since the tone and formality of your wedding is determined by the invitation you send, working with a stationer who “gets” you is paramount.

Our best advice is to choose to hire someone who not only offers a wide variety of stationery but who also really listens to you and offers custom design options (if that’s the route you and your budget want to take). Check out our Elite Circle stationery experts and enjoy using these wedding invitation trends in your stationery suite!

Lavender Wedding Inspiration | Arizona Wedding Inspiration
categories: bridal fashions, cakes and sweets, fabulous reception sites, favor and gift ideas, floral inspiration, for your ceremony, photography, real weddings, reception ideas, Trends, Wedding Inspiration, what's hot in rentals

Lavender wasn’t supposed to be a big color for weddings this year but this pretty purple hue is making a statement regardless! We think we know why lavender is a popular choice for couples planning their weddings: it’s purple (which is always in style for weddings) without being “too purple” and it conveys a delicate prettiness that’s appropriate for any wedding. From backyard get-togethers to grand ballrooms, lavender is lovely!

Lavender Wedding Inspiration: A color palette that includes lavender and other bright shades makes for some pretty gorgeous wedding attire. This bridal party’s attire is anything but boring thanks to the varied shades of purple!

Lavender Wedding Inspiration: Escort/place cards get a touch of lavender- they hint at what’s to come. And pretty much any stationery piece can include the light purple hue- table numbers, menus, signature cocktail signs,etc.

Wedding Trend: Tall Vases with Floating Floral Centerpieces
categories: floral inspiration, reception ideas, Trends, Wedding Inspiration

Centerpiece design offers a wide range of possibilities- sometimes couples choose low arrangements with the idea that they want their guests to be able to converse easily during dinner. Low profile centerpieces are especially appropriate for brunch weddings and can be a lovely way to decorate feasting tables as well; however, some couples choose tall designs because they want the overall effect of their floral arrangements to be more dramatic or fill a room that has tall ceilings. While both are beautiful, tall vases with floating floral centerpieces are a trend that we keep seeing in wedding floral design. Here are some examples from our Elite Circle florists:

tall vases with floating floral centerpieces _phoenix-bride-and-groom__eyes2see_your-event-florist_jw-marriott-desert-ridge

(Florist: Your Event Florist, Photographer: Eyes 2 See, Location: JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa)

More and more couples are choosing tall vases with floating floral centerpieces that feature very full arrangements at the top of the vase. We love this approach because it allows guests to still see everyone at the table while creating a nice airy feeling to the overall wedding decor; clear vases with floating flowers make a stylish statement that guests are sure to remember!

(Florist: Your Event Florist, Photographer: Eyes 2 See, Location: Arizona Biltmore)

Proportionately speaking, tall clear vases fill a ballroom with high ceilings very well and have a more formal vibe; floating elements add a touch of unexpected detail (and sometimes a pop of color)!

Groom and Groomsmen Attire Trends for 2017
categories: Grooms, Trends, Wedding Inspiration

Today the groom and groomsmen have our attention- and why shouldn’t they? They’re the handsome guys who not only look great standing alongside the bride and the bridesmaids (or other groom and groomsmen!), they’re also the guys who bring unmistakable fun and style to the entire wedding day! The 4 groom and groomsmen attire trends for 2017 you’ll want to consider for your wedding:

Groom and Groomsmen Attire Trends for 2017: White Tuxedos. There’s something crazy cool about a guy who can pull off a white tuxedo…groom and groomsmen attire trends for 2017 _phoenix-bride-and-groom_fully-alive-photography_white-tuxedos

(Photographer: Fully Alive Photography)

Groom and Groomsmen Attire Trends for 2017: Awesome Socks. While cool/hip/humorous socks themselves aren’t a particularly new trend for grooms, Balitello’s Sock of the Month Club is a new concept that’s not only an innovative way to get hip Performance Dress Socks on a regular basis, a club membership also makes a fab groomsmen gift!

groom and groomsmen attire trends for 2017 _phoenix-bride-and-groom_balitello_3

We love it when the groom and his guys opt for unexpected socks; whether they all match or not, socks are a colorful way for the guys to add that perfect bit of whimsy.

Groom and Groomsmen Attire Trends for 2017: Blue Ties. A definite trend for grooms and groomsmen this year is blue ties- this color in particular seems to be the go-to for grooms whether they’re wearing a suit or a tuxedo on the wedding day. Blue is also popular enough that grooms and their guys a TON of options. A few shopping sites we recommend: Weybridge 1761 and Beau Ties Ltd. of Vermont.

Groom and Groomsmen Attire Trends for 2017: Mismatched Suits. Perhaps the newest trend to hit the wedding world as far as groom’s attire is the mismatched suit trend. We often see a groom wearing one suit color, his best man wearing another, and the other groomsmen wearing a third color! As long as the formality is consistent, this is perfectly suitable for weddings in 2017.
