Pam called me with some ideas about she wanted for her wedding flowers. Her wedding dress was regency purple and she wanted to accent with that color in her bouquets, but was worried about it not being a close enough match. I sent her over to my blog to look at some bouquets I had previously made and she fell in love with this cascading bouquet that actually had a lighter shade of purple. This lighter shade was a great match to what her bridesmaids would be wearing, so I decided to design the bouquets from an “opposites” approach. Basically, the bride is wearing regency purple, but carrying white and lilac while the bridesmaids are wearing lilac and carrying white and darker purple flowers. That way we didn’t have to have exact matches, the purples would stand out against the dresses and both colors would be included. Take a look at what we came up with!
Here’s a look at the bouquets all together to see the contrast between the purples. They look lovely together!
Here’s a shot of a couple of their boutonnieres and corsages. She chose to have the regency purple in the groom’s boutonniere and switched it to the baby’s breath for the other boutonnieres. The only corsage was an attendant’s wristlet that featured each of the types of flowers.
If you are wearing a dress that is a non-traditional color and you want to incorporate that into your bouquets, contact me today to find out how we can work it all in without getting too saturated by it. Check back later this week to see some photos from Pam’s wedding!
