If you’ve been on social media at all over the last few months then you’ve seen a lot of hype about the 2022/2023 wedding boom. Every word of it is true– wedding vendors are booking like crazy right now, and those dates (especially popular May/June and September/October dates) are booking so quickly. So, just to reiterate– reach out to your dream vendors ASAP! Seriously. Run. Don’t walk. 😉
But, the point of this post isn’t to reiterate a social media theme regardless of how true it is. This post (and the rest of the series to come) is to help out the ones who haven’t gone into wedding planning with an idea of who they want to book. What about the brides who have no idea where to start? The ones who pull up a Google or Pinterest search, see the thousand results, and immediately feel overwhelmed? And now we’re adding the pressure of a wedding boom? I feel for those brides, and I want to help them out. So, I’m starting a series on the blog and on Instagram highlighting some of my favorite vendors. And anyone who sees a vendor and falls in love– reach out!! They’re truly incredible people, knowledgeable vendors, and amazing to work with!
We’ll start with my top 5 Charlotte Floral Designers today.
Before I start the list, I do want to add that this is exactly that: a list. I’m not even remotely ranking these against one another. It’s not in any particular order, though. They’re just all amazing!
I’ve shared a ton of Melissa’s floral design work on my Instagram, and I will truly sing this amazing lady’s praises all the live-long day. She has a way of making her floral installs somehow be a bold focal point while simultaneously looking like they grew there naturally. I don’t know how she does that, but she’s seriously just magical.
I just recently worked with Lauren for the first time, but her work was so stunning that I knew I had to include her in this list!! Her use of color and texture drew your attention and was perfectly exquisite. She also offers floral design classes that sound so fun! I really want to try one sometime!
Khan is honestly one of the sweetest people ever, and I love how she can take any dream and make it come to life! Seriously, if you can imagine a floral install she can make it a reality. Or, if you really want to be amazed, give her free reign. She will truly blow your mind.
Heather and her team are truly, truly gifted when it comes to floral design. Big or small, they can make any install or arrangement fit seemlessly into your desired style. From massive, dramatic installs to the most elegant and delicate boutennieres, these ladies can do it all, and they do it so, so well. (Also, you have to check out this amazing install she did recently–linking to her Instagram as the photo isn’t mine. 🙂 )
So, I have to be honest and admit that I haven’t directly worked with Narcisse yet, but I’ve followed and interacted with her via Instagram for a while now. Enough that I’m 110% confident in including her on this list. She’s someone who truly cares about her clients and their vision for their wedding or event. She’s not afraid to use unexpected colors and textures, and I find her work to be unique and so beautiful that I honestly wish I’d known her when I was planning my own wedding.

There are so many incredibly talented Charlotte Floral Designers that you probably can’t go wrong. But, the above list includes my top 5 favorites. So follow those links, follow them on Instagram, check out their websites–and give them a call if you’re needing a floral designer for anything!!
And, of course, if you need a wedding photographer, I’d love to chat. 🙂 Check back next week for my top 5 Charlotte Venues. But if you need a preview of a couple of favorites check out this one and this one!
