Wedding Week // Featured: Modern Day Floral // Grand Rapids MI Wedding Photographer

We are so very excited to be featuring one of our most favorite local businesses, Modern Day Floral, on the blog today! We are fortunate enough to work with this amazing team of floral and event designers several times throughout the year, and love every second of it.

Modern Day Floral opened it’s doors over a decade ago and while they have two locations to serve you, in the historic and timeless Amway Grand Plaza Hotel resides Modern Day’s luxury event design boutique. The space is the first of its kind in West Michigan – a space that offers both new and old clients an opportunity to view gorgeous textured linens, letterpress invitation samples, fresh floral blooms, specialty event rental items, and tablescape ideas. It can serve as a place of pure inspiration and design, whether you’re planning a lavish tented wedding for 300, or a dinner-party for 20 around your own dining room table.

When we asked Modern Day Floral’s owner, Jenn, what her top 3 tips and advice would be to brides that come to her for floral and event design this is what she shared with us:

Jenn states that she always starts out with the wedding dresses that are the show-stealers of the wedding. She says, “We always, always, always start with the dress and go from there.” She then adds that she typically suggests for her clients to bring in 2-3 photos that inspire them, “Whether that be colors, bouquets that they’ve previously seen and love, or decor. Anything that can help us better serve that client and make her vision come to life for the special day.”  Jenn’s third piece of advice when meeting with a client is venue. She says, “We always want to know the ins and outs of the space we’re going to be making beautiful and working with. What will accentuate the room, or rooms, how can we bring out the best in this particular space, help it reach it’s full potential, and make this couple’s vision come to life in an unforgettable way.”
