Erin’s work is amazing - you can tell how much care she takes, and what an eye for form and color she has. I am deeply impressed with how faithful her recreation is, her detail and passion, and how easy and pleasant she is to work with. My wife and I were both floored when we opened up the finished bouquet!
— David | Oklahoma

This bouquet had Dahlia, Calla Lilies, Roses in several hues of coral, orange and red, Hypericum berries, Gerbera Daisies, Seeded Eucalyptus and some twigs that wrapped around the outside of the bouquet. What a great fall bouquet!

Bridal Bouquet Framed Keepsake

While I’ve done lots and lots of bridal bouquet recreations in silk wedding flowers over the years, this is the first time I helped a bride DIY her own keepsake. I thought it was a very creative way to bring in several elements from her wedding all in one neat idea.

Jessica contacted me looking for ivory Calla Lilies, blue Dendrobium Orchids, teal Hydrangea and white Stephanotis. Those were all types of flowers in her original bridal bouquet. She had some shadowboxes that she wanted to get crafty with and I think it’s an awesome idea!

Hey Erin! I absolutely LOVED the flowers! They were great quality and worked perfectly with my project.

Light Blue, Blush and Ivory Silk Wedding Flowers

It’s no secret that blush pink is one of the hottest colors this year for wedding flowers. It’s a great way to accentuate a darker tone in the same family or to bring in a softer, more romantic color scheme. Here’s one way that we incorporated the blush with beautiful blues and ivories into a silk bridal bouquet.

Bridal Bouquet, Jr. Bridesmaid and Bridesmaid Bouquets

We added a little bit of glamour to the bridal bouquet with a custom rhinestone wrap. It added a nice bit of shine without being over the top.

Boutonnieres and corsages matched up nicely with the bouquets with the moms getting special wrist corsages with pearl beaded bracelets.

Bridal Bouquet Recreation Review

Summer is here in Minnesota and here’s a bouquet that is vibrant, fun, and looks like someone walked through the garden to gather up that perfect wedding flowers for a summer wedding. Christian emailed me hoping I could do a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers for his upcoming anniversary. He sent me a few photos and we identified all the lovely blooms and I got to work. Take a look!

Working with Erin was a pleasure. She was very prompt and always very nice in replying while planning and tweaking the bouquet recreation. The whole process was very simple and could not have been easier. The final product was beautiful, she perfectly captured my wife’s wedding bouquet. I couldn’t recommend her more!

Lavender Rose and Lisianthus Bridal Bouquet Recreation

Wedding bouquets are a big part of the big day. Even years later, Erik and his wife still remember the colors and arrangement of the wedding flowers she carried down the isle. As an anniversary gift, Erik requested a recreation in silk to last as long as the memory will. Here’s another awesome bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers.

Erik’s wife’s bouquet featured lavender Roses, darker purple Lisianthus and white Stephanotis. I tied it off with a simple satin Antique White ribbon wrap. So sweet and a great reminder of a special day for them. If you are looking for an anniversary gift, look no further! Contact me today about a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers.

Wedding Bouquet Recreation with Succulents

Succulents are a trend that’s sticking around. You know what else is sticking around? This bouquet! Ryan contacted me for free quote for a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers. This one was a stunner! You can see from my photos that it featured vibrant colors along with awesome textures.

White Anemone with blue centers, blue Anemone, ivory Roses, ivory Hydrangea, dark purple Calla Lilies, plum Delphinium, Succulents, and Silver Dollar Eucalyptus.

This was new to me, but apparently it’s a thing! Ryan requested a “hidden Mickey” on the handle of the bouquet. It’s basically 3 pins making the shape of Mickey’s head. Adorable!

Blush and Mauve Bridal Bouquet Recreation

Amy sent me a couple photos of her bridal bouquet. It was gorgeous and full of all sorts of beautiful flowers. She also sent me an invoice from her florist that listed some of the possible flowers that would appear in her bouquet. From that list I was able to track down just the right shades and shapes of blush and mauve Roses, Ranunculus, and Eucalyptus. Take a look!

When I received my recreated bouquet in the mail and opened it, it literally took me back to the wedding day when I first saw my bouquet. It is spectacular! Erin is extremely talented and I am so pleased to be able to enjoy this every day
— Amy | California

These two photos are a great example of why I usually ask for extra details. Amy sent me the second photo to give me a more accurate look at the colors of her flowers. That photo was great for that, but not for seeing the general shape of her bouquet, so I kind of hopped back and forth between both photos during the construction process.

Whether it’s your bouquet that got moldy when it was dried or a gift for your sweetheart to remind her of your wedding day, a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers is a great choice! Contact me today for a free quote.

Burgundy Dahlia & Blush Peony Cascade Silk Wedding Bouquet

A trend I’ve noticed and loved is the loose, modified, cascading style bouquets. They are romantic and airy and perfect for any style of wedding. Another hot thing this year has been merlot/burgundy/raspberry themed weddings. It’s a gorgeous and deep color that pairs so well with blush, ivory, and even greens. Today’s example includes a few of these elements:

Peonies, Dahlias, Fern, Seeded Eucalyptus, Heather, and Wisteria.

The groom’s boutonniere was a great match to the bouquet. A couple of blush mini Peony buds, some burgundy Heather and a sprig of Eucalyptus. Unique and interesting!

This matching cake topper and garland for around the base of the cake used some of the same flowers and all of the same beauty.

If you are looking for topnotch quality, look no further than Fresh Touch flowers. Not only do they look extremely realistic, but they feel like real flowers! I finished off the bouquet with classic Antique White satin ribbon with coral satin ribbon criss-crossed over the top. Charming!

Burgundy Cascade Silk Wedding Flower Review

After posting Janelle’s amazing raspberry and blush silk wedding flowers, the requests have poured in for quotes for similar style bouquets and color combinations. I love hearing from all of you who are looking for unique takes on burgundy flowers, modified cascade bouquets and how to add interesting texture to your custom silk wedding flowers.

For those of you checking me out for the first time, I wanted to share the photos Janelle sent me from her wedding day. She looks stunning, as do her bridesmaids! And I gotta say, her flowers looked great in front of the camera too. So if you’ve been wondering how silk wedding flowers compare to fresh, here’s a great look at how versatile and realistic they actually are.

These beautiful images were taken by Empiria Studios right here in Minneapolis. Check them out if you are looking for a great local photographer.

Burgundy-modified-cascade-silk-wedding-bouquet-roses-eucalyptus-branches-2.jpg

These ladies were brave for these photos, but these shots were worth some shivers!

Janelle came to me during the design process with an idea for her centerpieces. She was planning to do chargers with candles and wanted some matching greens and roses for each table. I used some of the same seeded Eucalyptus branches from the bouquets and bundled them up with some of the roses so that whoever her decorator was could just grab a bundle and arrange each table. This was a great, budget-friendly option that also fit well with Janelle’s overall style and theme.

Love is Blooming was fantastic to work with!! My flowers were so beautiful and Erin was so great to work with. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for beautiful flowers on their big day!

Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreation and Substitutions

When Christopher emailed me photos of his wife’s bouquet, I knew I was up for a challenge. The colors and variety of flower were stunningly beautiful, but also unique. There were peachy roses, a bit of ivory Hydrangea, pink/purple Waxflower, Veronica, tropical grass and greenery, a teal accent flower and the elusive Leucodendron. I knew there were going to be a couple of items that were going to be tricky to find for this silk bridal bouquet recreation, and in the end a substitution would need to be made. But take a look at the end result of this awesome bouquet recreation!

This bouquet was both a unique shape and composition and one that challenged me in some new and exciting ways! I couldn’t find the right shape of rose bud, so I found a peony bud that made the perfect stand in. Then, that Leucodendron stared me down in all it’s burgundy glory. I couldn’t find one that was the right size or color, so I put on my crafty thinking cap and came up with a plan. To get it just right, I had to piece together several of the same type of flower and dye it to the right shade to get just the right look. Sometimes it takes some extra creativity, but it’s always worth it in the end!

This stunner made it’s way to a military base in Japan for a sweet anniversary gift! If you are looking for just the right anniversary gift, a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers is absolutely the right choice! And if you’re worried about a unique design or flower getting in the way, fear not! Contact me today for more information!

Blush and Ivory Bridal Bouquet Recreation

Emily’s bridal bouquet was beautiful, interesting and so romantic! Roses, Orchids, Freesia, Mums and Ruscus made this elegant bouquet so soft looking and very, well, bridal! Take a look at this amazing bouquet!

Thank you so much Erin! I absolutely love my bouquet and I’m so glad I was able to find you and your services!

I had my original bouquet on display at my house but of course after a while, since it was dried, it definitely did not look nearly as pretty as it did on my wedding day and was starting to make me feel sad. I’m so happy with how the one you recreated for me turned out - it’s as beautiful as the original from my wedding and makes me so happy to see it everyday!

Bridal Bouquet Recreation in Silk Flowers

Unless you are the bride ordering your custom bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers, some of the details may escape you. And that’s ok! There’s a couple of options if you can’t quite remember what color the ribbon was or the exact type of every little flower. In MacKenzie’s case, his mother actually built his bride’s bouquet, so he was able to pass along my questions and find out those details that would make a difference. Don’t have your mom to ask? Contact the original florist, search your emails for an invoice, or ask a bridesmaid who might be able to recall those details you are seeking out.

Here’s the bouquet!

Lilies, roses and baby’s breath. Simple, beautiful, elegant!

It was so helpful to get MacKenzie’s feedback on what was in the bouquet. For instance, from this photo, I couldn’t tell there was a small stargazer lily at the back of the bouquet. MacKenzie was able to give me a run down of all that was in the bouquet as well as the fact that the ribbon was a light pink, not coral as it appeared in his photos.

Whether you know every single element of the bouquet or just have a vague idea, contact me for a quote on what it would take to get it recreated in silk flowers. We’ll be able to capture the feeling and overall look of that special bouquet with a little teamwork!

Royal Blue, Light Blue and White Silk Wedding Flowers

I’m not gonna lie, blue is a hard color to include in silk wedding flowers. Not many flowers show up in nature in a royal blue color, but that didn’t stop me from coming up with a design for April when she emailed me this fall. She sent me a swatch of the color her bridesmaids would be wearing, some inspiration pictures of bouquets she liked and we came up with a plan. I found some beautiful blue roses to match her swatch along with some light blue roses and touches of white for in the bouquets. Take a look!

The bridal bouquet included the royal blue and light blue roses along with some white lilies. Here are some photos of the details that really added some nice touches to her bouquet. One of the accents April wanted to include were some silver hearts, an element she was incorporating into her overall theme and decor. I found some lovely little silver and rhinestone hearts and added them throughout her bouquet. April decided on matching royal blue ribbon with a bow to finish it off and it looks amazing!

The bridesmaid bouquets included the same royal blue and light blue roses, but we added in some baby’s breath for a little contrast and texture. April wanted their bouquets to be a little different, so we decided on silver ribbon to tie them off.

Another look at the details of the bridesmaid bouquets—silver rhinestone hearts and ribbon bow to match the bridal bouquet.

Scottish Destination Wedding Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreation

Ryan contacted me hoping to have his wife’s bouquet recreated for their early October anniversary. They were married in Scotland and the venue had used its own garden to create her beautiful bridal bouquet. She was unable to bring it back to the states with her because of those pesky air travel regulations and was understandably disappointed. So Ryan set out to surprise her with a silk recreation. Her original bouquet included ivory Roses, Scottish Thistle, Veronica, Baby’s breath, Freesia, Fern, and some small blue berries. It was a stunner!

How romantic is this?! This bouquet was such a beauty and I loved getting to remake a piece of their special day.

If your destination wedding meant you had to leave your bouquet behind, contact me today to find out what it would take to have it a silk bridal bouquet recreation made for you or your bride.

Bling in a Silk Bridal Bouquet

There are lots of trends that come and go, but there are a few that I think will never be on the way out: wedding dresses and bling being a few of those. Take a look at this beautiful (and huge) silk bridal bouquet in a classic ivory and white color palette with some lovely bling.

Here’s the rundown of what all went into this stunner:

-Roses and Peonies in ivory and white.

-Rhinestone and beaded leaf piece accenting a central starburst broach.

-Special ordered handle wrap with ivory ribbon and hugely awesome rhinestone piece.

Maid of Honor Silk Wedding Bouquet Addition

Remember Winett’s gorgeous dark purple bouquets? She emailed me a few weeks after she received her flowers and asked if we could somehow work another bouquet into the mix. We decided to do a different style for this one and make it into her maid of honor bouquet in silk wedding flowers and here’s what we came up with:

We used the same Cymbidium Orchids in the plum purple and the ivory. Then I added more of the Picasso Calla Lilies and the lavender Sweet Pea and tied it off with the same silver ribbon that we used on her other bouquets. If you are looking to add another bridesmaid to your squad, silk flowers offer a great way to do that in a cohesive way, last minute or weeks ahead of time. Contact me if you are still working out your details and want to see what we can come up with for your bouquets.
