Weddings are spread all over the world and they are celebrated as diversely and uniquely as possible. Differing from culture to culture, they are an experience where love is ultimately universally celebrated. Old traditions, unique touches, individuality, and classic elements blend into every wedding on this planet. Yet, no matter how diverse weddings are, certain elements in each of them make them worldwide connected. There’s always family, friends and food, music and dancing, a special way of dressing, a good time, and, of course, flowers. 

EDGE Fanzine Features Weddings

For florists and floral designers, wedding flowers are such a big part of their job, whether they offer that specific service, or not. The wedding events' florals vary from spectacular to very intimate, from classic to avant-garde, and from themed to simply a celebration. However, they all have one element in common, which is the emotional factor involved, the sum of feelings that are beyond any other, and the beauty of the ultimate human experience that occurs within a couple.

Fanzine's Goals

This Fanzine has been produced to inspire, intrigue, and showcase the beauty of uniqueness in interpreting a universal theme. We hope that readers will keep referring back to it, to study what is included in it and also to learn more about the culture and traditions of other countries. It is important to recognize that floristry is truly international and that there is a wide range of opportunities for floral designers to work anywhere around the globe. To assist them in understanding the creative openings available to them, designers can take the opportunity to study the Fanzine, which can become a great starting point for them to learn more about international wedding floristry and how many different possibilities there are out there in each culture.

How EMC Designers See Weddings

The design outcome can be anything from a simple centerpiece to an elaborate floral installation, and the possibilities are limited only by the designer's creativity and imagination. The first step in creating a wedding design, they teach in EMC, is to determine the desired design outcome. This could be based on the theme or style of the event, the colors or types of flowers being used, or the space and setting where the arrangement will be displayed. Once the design outcome has been established, the designer will select the appropriate flowers, foliage, and other materials to achieve the desired look and feel.

The floral design process involves a number of elements, including color, texture, shape, and form. The designer will carefully consider each of these elements when selecting and arranging the flowers, foliage, and other materials, in order to create a cohesive and visually appealing design. In addition to the aesthetic considerations, floral designers must also take into account practical considerations such as the size and weight of the arrangement, the durability of the flowers, and the ease of transport and setup. By carefully considering both the design outcome and the practical requirements of the project, floral designers can create stunning and memorable arrangements that exceed their client's expectations.
