Mauve is the new pink and is beginning to takeover the world of weddings. It a beautiful soft and subtle shade of pale purple/pink that exudes romance and beauty.

This color is starting to pop up within wedding decor, bridesmaids dresses and of course within wedding and event floral arrangements.

Pantone color of the year for 2017

Pantones color of the year for 2017 is GREENERY.. and we couldn’t be happier.

Greenery is a revitalizing and fresh shade. It is the symbol of new beginnings, and what better way to celebrate new beginnings than by incorporating greenery into your wedding day décor!

Greenery is natures neutral, so any accompanying color will work perfectly to help convey your wedding day theme! Greenery would work perfectly in a bundle for a stunning centerpiece, but also can be incorporated into your table décor, head table and of course within your bouquets. Greenery table garlands are extremely popular this year and create a beautiful touch to any wedding, or you could also get creative and do some stunning greenery vine draping around your head table.

Incorporating some fresh greenery is sure to add a refreshing, invigorating and modern spin to your big day!

Why You Need an Event Designer

In a previous post we briefly talked about the essential differences between an event designer (us) and an event planner.  Here's a link to that post, in fact:

By the way, fun fact: if you google search 'why you need an event designer' or something similar, all the engine will come back with is a list of articles and posts explaining why you need an event planner. You'll find next to nothing on event design. 

So let us educate the internet today on the importance of an event designer for your wedding (and other important occasions). 

First of all, flowers are often a very important aspect in weddings- whether you just need bouquets or want to include them in your decor as well. Event designers are often also floral designers and can create professional, artistic floral creations. At Oudalova, floral design is a major aspect of our event designing and we love to create each floral arrangement unique to our client. An event designer's job is solely the visual of your wedding, so we make sure to make it as beautiful an experience as possible. 

The visual display is often not the most important item on an event planner's list; with an event designer you can ensure that your vision for your wedding day will be catered to and realized.

Event Designers have experience and knowledge of creative aesthetics and building cohesive visual themes. This experience allows us to work with our clients in a stress free manner and help them create the right atmosphere and display. We thrive on taking care of and adding details and custom creating to make each event unique.  

Hire us 6 months to a year prior and we'll take care of everything!

Yes, you need to hire designers quite a bit ahead of your scheduled event to give us a sufficient amount of time to take care of every single visual detail in your venue. But once you've hired us, you can remain worry free about your decor and bouquets and spend your valuable time taking care of other wedding related things. Just share your vision with us and sit back!

Event Designers VS Event Planners

It’s Friday here at Oudalova and we’re gearing up for a fun shoot happening tomorrow (more on that later) but let’s talk about what we do exactly.  As a floral and event design company, our essential goal is to make your space beautiful and unique to you. Whether it be a wedding or photo shoot, our job is to create beautiful décor, set designs, styling, and generally creating the aesthetic for the photos or venue.

And that folks, is where we are different from event planners! 

Event planners deal with the logistics of your wedding day: family relations, timeline, etc. Their main focus is that the day should go smoothly; they may not be involved with the visual display. We focus on making the event space beautiful- beautifully you that is. Our job (and we love our job by the way) is to tell your unique story through stunning décor, flowers, jewels and creative design.

It’s important to distinguish that our job does not end at ordering décor items and flowers for the event. We align our vision with yours, custom make beautiful creations and work on creating a comprehensive brand for your night. We personally source linens, flowers and any other details (such as escort cards, table numbers and cake toppers) that our brides can imagine; creating things by hand is never out of the question either. 

Oudalova’s speciality is floral design. We create bouquets and boutonnieres and by extension create other unique floral creations for the décor. But for us creativity and inspiration does not end at florals. We love working with everything from jewels to fabric and everything in between. 

You can imagine how much work goes into event designing: think sketches, design boards, meetings with our bride, meetings with vendors and sources, creating custom creations etc. Therefore, if you plan on hiring an event designer, make sure to do so at least 6 months to a year prior to the occasion!  

Our primary purpose is to transform your space and create something unique to you and your significant other.
