I went for the simple and classy setup as my SO and I want the English theme. So we went for white and green. My florist was Sing See Soon as they were significantly cheaper and plus, Grace did me a really big favour.
She came to my rescue at 7pm one day when my pre-wedding bouquet were a diaster. I immediately called her and asked if she could do something for me as my pre-wedding shoot was the next day and she did. At that time, I haven't decided on using them yet for my wedding. After this incident, I immediately signed with her. She's been a real dear to me, giving me her honest opinions and feedback on my flowers selection. And the end result was really great, my guests raved over it.
I was apprehensive about the pillars as well but in the end, they cause no obstruction at all. In fact, my SO and I worked around it. We had 10 tables of 12guests and none of them were blocked by the pillars. And my SO and me did our march-in, each entering one door and we met at the middle, went up to the stage and cut the cake.
So the march-in was something different, both of you don't have to march-in together through 1 door and leave guests on the other side cold.
