WEDDING FLOWER BUDGETING | Ever wonder why your bridal bouquet costs so much?

Ever wonder why your bridal bouquet costs so much more than any other bouquet you have ever bought? Some of you might think you’re are being taken advantage of …. but trust me my lovelies … that’s not the case! Think about this … we here at Sue Gallo Designs take the time to get to know you, your likes, dislikes,  your tastes and personal style, your over all wedding vision and help you curate a bouquet that is simply perfect for you, your gown and your wedding day.

Your bridal bouquet has 2 to 3 times more flowers within it than you might think. and we use the highest quality of product of course! Because nothing but the best for our lovely brides!  After taking time to understand your vision, your wedding and your dreams, we custom order your bouquet flowers from quality farms and hand pick your blooms for the highest & freshest quality and prettiest blooms to create your dream bouquet. Your bouquet isn’t created with just whatever is available at the flower market that week. We have fostered amazing relationships with growers and suppliers who have the highest quality and freshest blooms around and work with them to ensure that we have exactly what we are looking for.  With our years of experience, we know just what blooms will look best, what colours will compliment each other, and what textures work best together to fulfill your vision.

Once we have the prettiest and freshest blooms in studio, it takes us time to carefully clean and condition those gorgeous blooms. Then we set to work on hand crafting and carefully curating your bouquet. This always take us 3 to 4 times longer than it would for us to create a market bouquet … because we want to get it just right … perfect in fact!

Then it’s perfectly and beautiful bound with the loveliest ribbons and wrapped up super pretty … just for you.

It has taken years to hone our craft and to perfect our methods to create beautiful florals. So when you receive a quote for your wedding flowers … stop for a moment, look beyond the bottom line and consider this,  the value of our work and  your time spent with us and how we inspired you, the time it took us to carefully plan the most perfect wedding florals along with you … the experience & knowledge behind our florals. We here at Sue Gallo Designs are fiercely passionate about our work and helping you to create a most remarkable celebration!

So…what are you waiting for?? Give us a ring … lets get chatting and planning your amazingly beautiful Sue Gallo Designs wedding … so when you walk down the aisle you will be carring a beautiful bouquet … a bouquet you’ve been dreaming of since the day you said Yes to that gorgeous ring on your finger!

VALE & VINE EDITORIAL FEATURE | Romantic Garden Style Shoot

whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding57Only two words can possibly describe this romantic garden first look brunch, playfully glamorous!

Hoping to emulate an Italian engagement with a exquisite Alexis Gallery engagement ring that occurred months ago with previous clients. Danielle of Shaw Events reached out to the Venue Counsellor to help her secure the perfect venue. Danielle created an unexpected first look setting within an Italian inspired setting, the Italian Villa Bacchus. In the impossibly romantic villa garden, our couple caught the first glimpses of each other. Located in the heart of Niagara’s Bench country, the mansion sprawling estate was the perfect and unique setting for these first look photos.
Our bride was a vision with hair and make up by Amanda Zack. Her Catherine Langlois’ Megan gown of soft flowing silk chiffon perfectly encapsulates her youthful sweetness yet plays up her glamorous side. Her bouquet of classic pastel blush and cream tones with trailing silk ribbon accents is the perfect pairing of whimsical elegance with garden clematis, lush garden roses, sweet spring peony and romantic blushing bride leucadendron.
An intimate brunch awaited the couple in the Italian inspired garden. Nestled among the picturesque setting of the formal spring garden, the couple dined at a perfectly set table. A lush compote styled arrangement of spring garden blooms by Sue Gallo Designs completes the table top adorned with linen, plate and silver wear from Simply Beautiful Decor.
Customized hand written stationary by All Things Lovely Paper Co sweetly announces that couples pending nuptials. And we are utterly smitten by the relaxed glamour captured in photographer Whitney Heard’s images. whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding74whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding1whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding11whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding4whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding22whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding19whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding46whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding61whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding32whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding45whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding69whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding85whitney-heard-photography-shaw-events-niagra-garden_wedding83
