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!
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!
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!
Last week I showed you Araina's beautiful flowers. And this week, I'm showing you a few action shots provided by the bride herself!
Gorgeous right? I worked primarily with Araina's grandmother, Diane, to plan and design the flowers. So whether you are planning your wedding or planning it for someone else, silk wedding flowers are a great option! You get the benefit of seeing how they come together, which is especially helpful if you are the "middleman" and need to check with someone else. Araina was able to keep working on planning other parts of her wedding while still in the loop about her flowers. I didn't have to keep asking her all the questions, but she also wasn't surprised on her wedding day about what her flowers were going to look like.
The bridesmaids wore beautiful blush pink dresses that complimented the bouquets perfectly!

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.

Finished product shots are really fun to take and to show. I get to see the process from start to finish: from inspiration board/photos, to a pile of flowers in my studio, to construction, finishing touches, and final photos.
I shared one of those steps with you in a post about a vintage blush and mauve silk bridal bouquet for Susan. She had a broach made custom for her bridal bouquet and wanted some additional bling added in. She gave me quite a bit of freedom in the design which is always a fun challenge. Here's the pile o' flowers picture:
And here's the finished product:
We added in some gold buttons with rhinestone details along side the broach; a good complement without taking away from such a unique piece. The groom's boutonniere was a single mauve rose with some lamb's ear tucked behind and wrapped in the same ribbon as the bouquet.
