BLOOM COLORFULLY | NO. 03

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday!

Today, we are so excited to start a new series based around all of our pretty pretty blooms!

One of the common dilemmas our flower brides usually have when we meet for the first time is finding a photo of a bouquet or centerpiece and loving it, but having no idea what flowers were used to create the design!

Well, fear not, because we are going to start breaking down the ingredients used in our arrangements! This will be the perfect tool to take with you when planning your wedding color palette or floral must-have list!

We're kicking things off today with these crazy cool, color-filled arrangements we designed for the TOPSHOP x rewardStyle lunch from April's rewardStyle conference, #rStheCon! We had so much fun ordering ALL. THE. COLORS. for this event and you are going to love seeing all the happy flowers we used to create them!

INSPIRATION | GREENERY (PANTONE'S COLOR OF THE YEAR)

Let's just say Pantone's announcement of the 2017 color of the year wasn't a revelation to us. We have allllllllways loved greenery. It gives a lush, organic quality to floral arrangements and it totally makes your budget go further!!

We love when our brides are open to using greenery in creative ways because it's a beautiful way to add special little touches throughout your wedding day without breaking the bank!

Let's dive into some of our favorite ways to use greenery to make your wedding the garden fantasy of your dreams!

Garden Maids. A mix of textural greenery makes a gorgeous bridesmaid bouquet, especially if you are trying to unify a mix of dress styles and colors.

Trailing Vines. Delicate greenery makes a gorgeous backdrop for special areas of your wedding like behind the cake or even as a backdrop for your vows!

Branching Out. These tall centerpieces of all greenery are an incredible way to draw the eye up in your reception space and keep the organic garden style you love. Tall centerpieces tend to go traditional with what we like to call "hydrangea balls". If you love the organic, sculptural style more, this is an amazing option!

Down the Aisle. We love the trend of blocking off the aisle to politely and beautifully keep well-meaning guests from hopping out in the aisle to take cell phone pictures. With the popularity of unplugged weddings growing every second, this is the perfect way to remind guests to enjoy the ceremony and not play photographer.

Delicate Touches. Light greenery tucked around candles, cake stands, family photo displays, and even the buffet line is an amazingly inexpensive way to really dress up for utilitarian areas of your wedding!

Yeah, we couldn't love greenery more! What do you think of this trend? Love it? Hate it? Share below!

TIPS | SEASONAL FALL FLOWERS

Tips_season_fall_flowers.png

From pumpkin spice lattes to cozy neutral boots, how could you not fall for Fall? It's packed with seasonal treasures for the stomach, the closet and the home. But, Fall offers so much more than Thanksgiving dinner and sweater weather. It’s the season that brings us some of the most unique shapes and romantic shades of the year.

Shopping Seasonally is a great way to add a touch of nature without breaking your budget. Use Fall's sophisticated red and vibrant yellows to capture the warmth and beauty of the season. Pair these shades with romantic lighting and you've got a truly magical experience for guests to enjoy. But, with so many options, we know it can get a little complicated. So, check out our cheat sheet to effortless Fall florals below. 

Pro Tip 1: In-Season Is The Best Season: No bride wants to find out the flowers she's been dreaming of since childhood aren't available for her big day. Skip the disappointment (and cost!) by selecting flowers that are in season.  Picking out of season flowers could mean paying upwards of 50% more and totally blowing your budget. 

The Go To Flowers for Fall [in order of appearance] are: 

  • Camellias - known for their soft and round shape these delicate flowers are beautifully paired with other flowers
  • Hydrangeas -these bushy and festive flowers are an excellent accent to any bouquet.
  • Delphiniums - This country flower adds the perfect  height to any arrangement. it's elegant stem, speckled with vibrant color helps pull any piece to completion. 
  • Sunflowers - A classic and whimsical flower, bursting with color, these beauties will add a touch of unexpected 'WOW'. 
  • If you're looking for fun shapes and a classic look: Orchids, Cala Lillies & Billy Ball's are what's going to set your arrangements apart. 

Pro Tip 2: Focus on a Hue...or Two...or Four - If you're having trouble finding a place to start with your floral selection, trying picking a singular color OR if you're feeling bold, pick a bunch of colors in both neutral and bold shades.

Pro Tip #3: Use Every Flower in Every Way - Let no flower go wasted. Bring those bright oranges and inspiring reds into centerpieces, boutonnieres, and your ceremony space. Throw in some pumpkins or candles, and you'll blow your guests away with all that Autumn charm.

Pro Tip #4: Dabble Beyond Flowers - Arguably the best part of Fall weddings is that you can incorporate aspects of nature beyond flowers. Consider lining your aisle with crisp, ombre leaves and acorns or using a wood stump as a cake stand.
