Our Wedding Vendors - The Florist

I have always wanted my wedding bouquet to be different, not the usual rose or lily. For some reason, I fell in love with peonies ever since my trip to China in 2005 and after finding out that it is possible to incorporate peonies into a bouquet, I had my mind set to a peonies and ranunculus bouquet for a change.

It was not easy looking for a florist that supplies imported peonies, but thankfully upon recommendation from Elaine from PIW, I went to M'ng Bouquets based in Plaza Damas. I met up with the owner M'ng and he ran through pictures of his portfolio. Satisfied, I then showed the M'ng my colour scheme and choice of flowers for the wedding bouquet. He gave me a brief idea how it will look like, and the rest I left it to him.

Here's a picture of the bouquet :

Apart from incorporating pink peonies and white ranunculus, he also added lovely pink eustomas into the bouquet for a soft and romantic touch. The entire bouquet was tied to a satin ribbon. Perfect! By the way, I didn't throw my bouquet to anyone, I wanted to keep it!

We also engaged M'ng and team to decorate the wedding car. No big frilly organza ribbons. No teddy bear or Mickey Mouse. We wanted something simple. In the end, M'ng suggested we just tie pink satin ribbons over the car, and decorate the handles with fresh flowers.

So, as a result, the wedding car deco is simple as how we wanted it, and the best part was the flowers used were the same as the wedding bouquet so it is 'matching'. Lovely!

We blew our budget slightly on the flowers, which slightly frustrated me as it wasn't as agreed upon up front, but again he did mention the price will depend on the cost of importing the peonies, so give and take a bit. However, the pictures of the lovely flowers certainly cheer me up each time I see them.

Thanks M'ng for your creativity and making the little details memorable!
