Erin was absolutely wonderful to work with and I couldn’t have been happier with the flowers that she did for my wedding. I sent her some inspiration photos of flowers I liked and was able to create something even more beautiful that I had hoped for. The flowers made the colors pop in the wedding and the greenery was perfect. She sent me update photos as she worked on the flowers and had them done sooner than I expected. The flowers are beautiful and a price that can’t be beat for everything I got!

Blush, Sage and Charcoal Silk Wedding Flowers- Part 1

Each time I make a new set of silk wedding flowers and bridal bouquets, especially the ones where the design is 100% from the depths of my right brain, they instantly become my favorite. I mean, I love all the flowers I create, but there are some that turn out so dreamy that I remember them long after I hand them over to my bride’s. On that note, I give you…

Exhibit A:

Angie’s flowers were a combination of softness, classic beauty, romantic colors, interesting textures and were just so dang pretty! There were Roses and Peonies and Dogwood and Lamb’s ear and Smilax and the best Charcoal satin ribbon you can find. *Sigh*

Angie’s bridal bouquet had more of the classic cascading shape, but but not keeping the flowers too tightly together and loosening up the shape with greenery it didn’t look as formal as a traditional cascade bouquet. It was a perfect fit for their outdoor wedding.

The bridesmaid, flower girl and toss bouquets used all the same flowers, but we switched it to a more round/handtied style.

The boutonnieres and corsages incorporated the same flowers and greenery with that classy charcoal ribbon.

Groom, Groomsman, Father Boutonnieres

Mother, Grandmother and Attendant Corsages

Check back later this week to see some photos from Angie’s big day and hear what it was like working with me!

Blush and Ivory Bridal Bouquet Recreation

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!

Thank you so much Erin! I absolutely love my bouquet and I’m so glad I was able to find you and your services!

I had my original bouquet on display at my house but of course after a while, since it was dried, it definitely did not look nearly as pretty as it did on my wedding day and was starting to make me feel sad. I’m so happy with how the one you recreated for me turned out - it’s as beautiful as the original from my wedding and makes me so happy to see it everyday!

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!

Silk Wedding Flower Review

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!

The flowers were awesome and many people commented on them. The most common praise was, “Silk? I thought they were real!”

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.

If you are incorporating blush in your bouquets, take a look at some other silk wedding flowers that incorporated this bridal classic. Then send in your Free Bride's Checklist to get the design process started!

Blush and Mauve Silk Bridal Bouquet

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:

Mauve roses, pink and cream Hydrangea, Ivory and pink Calla Lilies, Lamb's ear

Erin was very creative with my bouquet in choosing the perfect flowers to compliment my antique inspired wedding gown as I had no idea as to what kind of flowers to choose. It was beautiful and looked so real and she did not over price the bouquet. I would definitely recommend Love Is Blooming 100%. I am absolutely satisfied, my bouquet is stunning and is a keepsake to last forever.
— Susan | Tennesee

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.
