In this three-day course, students learn the full process of creating the overall floral design for a wedding. Students begin with creating storyboards, receive instruction in conducting consultations and creating proposals, how to purchase floral product and finally, creating the mock-execution of the event’s designs. Each student is required to develop their own wedding floral designs based on specific client requests and finishes with a mockup table decor and presentation to the “client.” This is a great opportunity for students to practice event production with specific client requests, budgets and of course, flowers.
Day One: Introduction to Event Design (10:30am – 4:00pm) A full-day class discussion with Meredith. In the morning, Meredith will review the best approach to Event Design from client intake, understanding of client’s needs and expectations and developing a proposal within a client’s preferred budget. This is an opportunity to ask specific questions and review details for event design and production. In teams students will select their mock wedding profile to begin visioning the specifics of this event with a story board.
