    If I had a florist and an interior decorator offer to do my decor for free, I'd be thrilled! : (4 votes)

    Hmm, this could go awry if you're not specific enough. I'd have a long chat about my expectations. : (3 votes)

    I would NEVER let someone else take over my wedding decor. What if it looks terrible?? : (0 votes)

    @UK Bride: I think you should definitely come up with some sort of sketch or inspiration photos to give these women. Just be specific about what you want, layout and everything. It sounds like they would do an excellent job with their expertise, and it was very kind and generous of them to offer to do this for free! However, I know that as brides we want things to be a certain way and fit our vision. I am sure they would welcome your input as to what you would like the space to look like. Being professionals, I imagine they want to make sure you are 100% satisfied with how it looks.

    @UK Bride: one’s an interior decorator, right?  talk to her!!!!

    They’re paid to take someone’s ideas and turn them into reality (I think… could be wrong…).  But she’d the one who I’d talk to about decorating the interior.  Send her pics of what you have in mind with specific details on what you do/don’t like about the photos.  

    I think if you go that route, you’ll be fine.  But I wouldn’t just say “black and white, understated elegance, no tulle and bows, etc”.  

    Of course, I’ve never worked with an interior decorator, so I could be completely wrong here. 🙂

    @UK Bride: have you checked out theknot.com for ideas???  That’s really the only reason I even go to the knot…
