Rubies, the birthstone of July, are considered the king of gems and represent love, health and wisdom. It was believed wearing a fine red ruby bestowed good fortune on its owner. A Ruby is the most valuable gemstone and its value increases based on its colour and quality.
The beautiful Larkspur is the flower of July. The Larkspur is a wonderfully colourful flower, its blooms cover a spectrum from white to blue to violet.

Flower are a pretty important part of your wedding. They create the ‘WOW factor’ at your venue and reception and appear in almost all your formal photographs – so this is an area you really don’t want to compromise on. At the minimum you will probably want to order a bridal bouquet, bridesmaid bouquet and buttonholes and corsages.
But the first step is to choose a florist ‘who gets you’ and will get the job done right. To choose your florist you will want to book a consultation where the florist will go through what you want and help you choose if you are unsure. Ask to see photographs of their work to make sure they can deliver what you want and also look for testimonials from other brides.
In your consultation the florist will want to know what style you like eg. Lavish, simple, modern, romantic any must have flowers and your colour theme. For quotation purposes they will also need to know the numbers of bridesmaids, how many people will want buttonholes and corsages, what decoration you would like for the wedding venue and reception. It is also helpful if you have a budget – that way they will be able to make suggestions based on how much you want to spend.
After you have had a detailed discussion the florist should be able to provide you with a detailed quotation. You may want to see a few florist so you can get an idea of what different florist will provide. After you have seen them it is time to decide which florist will be providing your flower, it is not all about price (although this is an important factor) it is also very important that the florist get your vision and that you have the confidence in them to provide top quality service. If price is a big factor in your decision making process make sure you are comparing ‘apples with apples’. For example - A rose bridal bouquet from one florist could look very different in size and quality than a rose bridal bouquet from anther florist.
As you can see it is a very exciting period for us at Booker Flowers and Gifts with lots happening and plenty of new stock so be sure to check out our websites for some fantastic products and great deals.
