Burgundy and Blush Silk Wedding Flowers

Burgundy and Blush might have been someone’s million dollar idea this year. Even though I don’t know who decided it would be a hot color combo for bridal bouquets this year, I do know that I’ve loved all the different designs that have come out of it for silk wedding flowers here in my corner of Minnesota.

Anna wanted mostly the wine/burgundy in her bouquets with just a hint of blush. Her bridal bouquet was the modified cascade style draping, texture, and saturated colors. Basically she had a dreamy, romantic bridal bouquet with Dahlia, Calla Lilies, Cherry Blossom, Ranunculus, Babys’ Breath, and Eucalyptus. All the bouquets were finished up with a lovely burlap with lace overlay. It added to the rustic charm that Anna was hoping for.

The bridesmaids carried similar style bouquets with some slight changes that would allow the bridal bouquet to stand out a little more. The toss bouquet had the same variety of flowers as the bridal bouquet, just smaller and more throwable…throwier…aerodynamic!

Bridesmaid and Toss Bouquet

Here are some of the boutonnieres using the every classic and trust-worthy Calla Lily in a dark burgundy. These guys never let you down on your wedding day, especially because they are silk and you never have to worry about them getting crushed in all those bro-hugs or wilting in our unpredictable Minnesota weather.

Maybe you didn’t come up with this winning color combination, but you definitely want to use it in your own wedding. Fill out the Free Bride’s Checklist to get a quote and get the design process started with me!

Blush Pink Bridal Bouquet Recreation in Silk Flowers

This pretty blush pink bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers was a fun bouquet. It had a variety of pinks, some fun texture with the pale blush heather and then a pop of contrast with the darker pink leaves.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

Pink, Navy and Gold Silk Wedding Flowers

There are a few color combos that have popped up quite a bit this year. Blush pink has been super popular, obviously so because of its classic touch to any wedding. Plus it pairs very well with a lot of different colors; navy is one of those! Take a look at local bride TomiAnn’s beautiful silk wedding flowers:

TomiAnn chose beautiful blue Hydrangea to be in her bouquet, along with beautiful ivory Roses and pale pink Peonies. We tied it off with navy ribbon. TomiAnn had a couple meaningful elements in her silk wedding flowers, including this very special charm for an honored loved one. She ordered this from another vendor and had me add it to the bouquet.

TomiAnn’s maid of honor is going to carry this beautiful and complementary bouquet:

The Maid of Honor bouquet included the same ivory roses and pale pink Peonies. We tied it off with a sheer gold ribbon for a touch of shine and to match her navy, gold and pink color scheme.

Toss Bouquet

We incorporated all the colors into the boutonnieres and corsages. We used pink roses for most of the main flowers, adding in a little blue to the mothers, grandmother and groom’s flowers. TomiAnn also had charms for the mothers and the groom’s. I especially loved this touching way to honor people in her life.

Blush Silk Wedding Flowers

Despite Pantone having chosen Ultra Violet as the color of the year, I've gotten more requests for blush pink flowers this year than anything else! Here's one of those beautiful weddings!

The bridal bouquet was a combination of blush Peonies, ivory Roses and ivory fresh touch Calla Lilies. It was soft, feminine, elegant and everything you want in a bridal bouquet!

With the bridesmaid bouquets, we did an "opposites" effect. It's a fairly popular option to make the bridal bouquet stand out from the bridesmaids. We used ivory Peonies and blush Roses. No Calla Lilies were included because that was a special flower just for the bride and groom.

When you are using Calla Lilies and Roses, boutonnieres and corsages are fairly easy to design. They are timeless flowers that look great on their own or with a little accent color or flowers.

Mauve and Blush Silk Wedding Flowers

It might be obvious that what I do is fun, but every once in a while it's a little...extra. When I get a bride who gives me some freedom to come up with something special, it's a fun challenge for me. Liz is one of those brides. Her sister Katherine had the same adventurous spirit when it came to her wedding flowers. Sounds like a fun family to be a part of!

So when Liz contacted me to do her silk wedding flowers too, I was excited because she gave me a color palette of mauve and blush pink and mentioned she wanted a variety of greenery.  Here's what I came up with:

This stunning, cascading bouquet has blush Peonies, light and dark mauve fresh touch Roses, ivory Roses, Baby's breath, mauve Thistle, Seeded Eucalyptus and Dusty Miller. I tied it off with a beautiful mauve satin ribbon to finish the look. The textures are so interesting and the color combo is just gorgeous!

The bridesmaid bouquets had some of the same flowers as the bridal, but a different shape. They also had the blush Peonies, ivory Roses, dark mauve Roses, Baby's Breath, Seeded Eucalyptus and Dusty Miller. It still had lots of fun texture and color, but the bridal bouquet had those few extra elements to set it apart. I wrapped the bridesmaid and toss bouquets in a blush pink satin ribbon for an elegant touch.

One of the bridesmaid bouquets with the cute little toss bouquet. The toss included ivory Roses, a single dark mauve Rose, Seeded Eucalyptus and that beautiful mauve satin ribbon.

The boutonnieres and corsages used mauve and ivory roses with various greenery and smaller accent flowers to bring in more of the colors. If you want to see more weddings that incorporated mauve, check out these blog posts!
