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!

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.

Regency and Lilac Purple Silk Wedding Flowers- Part 1

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!

Orchids, Calla Lilies, lilac Blossoms, Baby’s Breath

Bridesmaid Bouquet: Hydrangea, Waxflower. Toss Bouquet: Hydrangea, Waxflower, Baby’s Breath.

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!

Navy and Ivory Silk Wedding Flowers- Part 2

Ivory and White Silk Wedding Flower Bouquets with Greenery

You can't go wrong with ivory and white flowers in your silk wedding flower bouquets. Toss in some greenery and you've got a versatile design that could do any season and still look great.

Peonies, Roses, Baby's Breath and Ficus leaves are the perfect combination for classic wedding flowers.

The bridesmaid bouquets were smaller versions of the bridal. These looser hand tied style bouquets are a little less formal style and great for any wedding venue.

Deanna made this order completely on behalf of her daughter. It was a seamless process from design, to creation, to finish! She was able to relay our ideas to her daughter who gave some feedback before the official thumbs up on her designs. We tied everything off with a slightly shimmery gold ribbon for her August wedding. 

Whether you know exactly what you want, or maybe you are ordering on behalf of someone else, silk wedding flowers are a great option because you get a say in how it all comes together. Custom silk wedding flowers are great for so many reasons and the best part is that Deanna will have these flowers in hand, weeks before her daughter walks down the aisle. She knows what they look like and there are no flower surprises on such a big day. If you are considering silk flowers for your wedding, request a free quote today!

Spring Bridal Bouquet in Silk Flowers- Loose Style Bouquets

Last week I was in major production mode, which means I'm cranking out flowers (count is at 3 weddings and 3 recreations) like it's my job! Because, well, it is my job:) I'm loving the variety of colors, textures, and styles!  In the last week and a half, I've done blushes, purples, blues, whites, and cascading, round and loose style garden bouquets. And all were done in high quality silk wedding flowers.

This set of silk wedding bouquets are some of my favorites for spring! It's for a local May wedding which is only a few weeks off, but I was able to get some pictures of them outside before it snowed again (and again!). I was feeling inspired to share them with you as we all sit here waiting for real spring to show up.

The bridal bouquet is a mix of peonies, dahlias, roses, lavender, baby's breath, lamb's ear and eucalyptus, dried gomphrena, and some berries. Perfect for a late spring soiree! 

The bride initially order a bridal bouquet and groom's boutonniere. But her family jumped in and were ready to help her round out her flowers with a couple of matching silk bridesmaid bouquets along with boutonnieres and corsages for the groomsmen, parents and grandparents. We kept things light and airy for the bridesmaids: lavender and baby's breath with some lamb's ear. The perfect compliment to her bridal bouquet!

Groom's boutonniere, Groomsman's boutonniere, Mother's corsage.

Maybe this snow has you excited about your upcoming winter wedding. Whatever the season, silk wedding flowers are always a great option! Fill out the Free Bride's Checklist today to start the conversation about how to bring your floral vision to life!

Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreation In A Short Timeframe

I like a good challenge and I'm competitive. So when Andrew contacted me about recreating his wife's bridal bouquet in silk flowers and said he understood if I couldn't get it done before his November 20th anniversary, I mentally told him, "Challenge accepted." Then I wrote him a polite email about how I was going to make it happen. Here's a side-by-side comparison.

Ever since we have been married my wife has been raving about how much she loved her bouquet. Our first anniversary was coming up when I found Love is Blooming on the internet. From the first email with Erin I knew that getting my wife’s bouquet recreated was a good idea! The whole process was so easy, and quick! Erin made the most beautiful recreation of my wife’s bouquet, and my wife was overwhelmed when she saw them. I would highly recommend working with Love is Blooming for whatever you are looking for, you will not regret it!!
