Bridesmaid bouquet

April Snow Showers bring May Silk Wedding Flowers!

May is always a popular month to get married. Things feel fresh and bright and it's the start of something new. There are tons of color options for May silk wedding flowers and really anything goes! From the pinks and purples, to coral and red (check back next week to see that lovely color combo), to a classic blue and white like Mary and Jason's flowers.

As a friend of the bride and groom, it was fun to talk with them about their long anticipated wedding.  Having been together for over a decade, they were more than ready to make their plans become a reality. Mary has had her dress for a while and she wanted her flowers to complement the blue accents on her bridal gown.

I found some pretty blue Hydrangea, dark blue Roses, and we added in some white Calla Lilies (these fresh touch Callas are the best!) and tied it off with some silver ribbon. Her bridesmaids will carry a smaller version of Mary's bouquet and the toss bouquet is a simple clutch of blue Hydrangea and white Callas. I left some greenery and added some berries for a fresh from the garden look.

The boutonnieres and corsages in the same high quality silk flowers were a perfect match to the bouquets.

Creating wedding flowers is a special job because it's helping a couple celebrate one of the happiest days of their lives. It's even better when you're doing it for friends! Thanks Jason and Mary for asking me to be a part of such a special day!

Navy, Blush and Gold Minneapolis Wedding Bouquets

This year has been one of inspiring color combinations, unique textures and classic designs. I want to show you one today that was a romantic navy, blush pink and gold wedding.

Leanna sent me a slew of pictures earlier in the year to show me her inspiration for her wedding flowers. The navy components were striking, the blush pinks were soft and the gold was a beautiful accent to bring it all together. She wanted the bridal bouquet to be set apart from the bridesmaids, but still have a cohesive look with all the arrangements.

Ivory Roses, Blueberries and Blue Thistle

The bridesmaids carried another collection of flowers that incorporated texture and charm.

Blush Pink Roses and Hydrangea, White Astilbe and White Freesia

The boutonnieres and corsages were a variety of styles and colors, all coordinating with each other but staying within the realm of Leanna's scheme. The Blue Thistle made everything pop!

Centerpieces were also a great option for Leanna's wedding - coordinating with the rest of her flowers and more affordable than fresh arrangement. She was able to customize two different styles of centerpieces for the vases she had already purchased.

If you thought floral centerpieces were out of range for your upcoming wedding, you're not alone. Most fresh flower centerpieces are! Don't sacrifice your budget for your vision! Contact me,  a Minneapolis silk florist, to find out how we can bring that dream to life.

Monochromatic Flowers for Spring or Summer

Many brides like the classic white-on-white or cream-on-cream look. But many haven't considered how to take it a step further and incorporate another color in their wedding while keeping it monochromatic.

Here's an example of a classic monochromatic bridal bouquet that incorporated beautiful Peonies and Calla Lilies. The different textures make it interesting and this look will never go out of style. We wanted all of the arrangements to be cohesive but bring in a bright and sunny yellow to her wedding flowers.

We chose matching monochromatic flowers: Peonies and Calla Lillies in a beautiful yellow color and added an additional pop of texture with the cute Craspedia, or Billy Buttons as they are sometimes called. These bouquets looked amazing against the bridesmaids neutral palette dresses in a tone of gray. 

If you want some cross over in your color scheme and flower arrangements after doing monochromatic bouquets, keep it simple. Here we chose just the Calla Lilies in both colors for a cute and classy toss bouquet.

Coral and White Wedding Roses

Coral and seems to be one of those colors that is everywhere. And coral and white are just made for each other, which is they are showing up in more 2016 weddings. From the soft and feminine palette, to a more saturated and vibrant tone, it's a classic combination that won't be going anywhere anytime soon.

I particularly love Ranunculus, as do many brides, so when I found these perfect peach and coral Ranunculus for a bride it was a match made in heaven.  I tucked the Ranunculus in between white Roses in a random manner and it turned out looking whimsical and dainty and shabby chic all at the same time. This is one of my favorites!

When you've got such a great bouquet, you want to finish it off just as well.  I found this peach Muslin that was the perfect complement to the bouquet and added a rustic charm.  Taking it another step further, I added twine in the center and it all came together.  We mirrored the look in the Groom's boutonniere with two tones of Ranunuclus, Muslin wrap and a bit of the twine.  A perfect pair! 

Corsages and boutonnieres in matching styles and colors enhance the overall picture that your flowers give your guests.  While it may seem overwhelming to think about the designs for all those personal arrangements, you can leave it to me to come up with coordinating corsages and boutonnieres that will photograph well, hold up to all those hugs, and work with the design of your stunning bridal bouquet.  Get in touch with me to order your coral and white silk wedding bouquet and hear more about the designs that can make it all work together.
