We say yes, what do you think? These arrangements are styled almost exactly the same using the same exact flowers. The arrangement on the left is in shades of lavender into plum with accents of lime green. The arrangement to the right is all shades of white and blushes.
As the end of summer appropriates our wedding designs turn for soft pastels into late summer vibrant blooms, like this one for our bride Jessica. This will be held by the bride herself and is especially gorgeous, don't you think?
A combination of dahlia's, spray roses, craspedia, hypericum berries, buplerium, tea roses and alstroemeria combine in a way that reminds us of Sherbert! The rich jeweltone colors are so wonderful for late summer and I especially love how Design Manager Holly placed the flowers so that it's very textured and not overly symmetrical. Let us know what you think of this bouquet, we'd love to know!
Trying to decide if your bridal bouquet should be simple and classic, perhaps a combination of all white and ivory flowers or perhaps you want to pop it out and have fun with your colors and choose a more dramatic color combination. In my experience, this is truly a personal choice.
With 50% of our brides going with white, ivory or paler tones and the other 50% going more colorful, I admit that I'm a sucker for these more unusual color combinations. Take this weekend's bridal bouquet for Megan with it's dramatic textures and color. Shades from peach, pink into deep oranges, this bouquet has lots of contrast and texture. Garden roses, dahlias, ranunculus, pincushion protea and hypericum berries accented with touches of baby's breath (see previous blog, those are what her bride's maids are carrying).
Because this bouquet is not only colorful but textural (all different shaped flowers) but not styled too wild, the overall look of the bouquet is still somewhat formal. I personally can not wait to see pictures of Megan holding her gorgeous bouquet!
Over the past year or so, baby's breath has really become a staple element in our floral designs and this summer has been no exception. This weekend, we're creating floral elements for a wedding at Chauncey Hotel and Conference Center using lots and lots of baby's breath including these for the bride maids. The stems are wrapped in a burlap ribbon for a rustic feel but not as rustic as twine. The bridal bouquet will be styled in vibrantly colored flowers but keeping to the simple, vintage theme, the centerpieces will be simple baby's breath in a mason jar.
Looking forward to 2015 weddings, I can't say for sure if the baby's breath trend will continue, although quite a few of our weddings for September and October will also be using this affordable but romantic flower. Stay tuned to our website to see future floral creations!
