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 1

Local bride Emilie came to me with a pretty clear vision of her silk wedding flowers. Her color scheme was navy and ivory and she knew she wanted roses. We swapped emails with some of her inspiration pictures and I was able to come with designs that very closely matched those. Take a look at what we designed together!

Emilie’s bridal bouquet was a mixture of navy and ivory roses, with some pearls, crystals and greenery mixed in. I finished it off with a layer of navy satin ribbon with a burlap and lace overlay to complement some of the rustic elements she was incorporating in other parts of her wedding decor.

The bridal party included a maid of honor and best man, but they chose to honor many more of their special guests with custom silk flower boutonnieres and corsages.

Whether you need 15 bouquet and 3 boutonnieres or 3 bouquets and 41 boutonnieres and corsages like Emilie, silk wedding flowers are the most affordable decision you can make for your wedding. And even with that many arrangements, she was still able to fit custom altar arrangements, flower girl crown, cake toppers, and candle rings into her budget. My next blog post will be all about those “extras” that we all want, but we’re not sure they’ll fit into the budget.

Bouquet Recreation Review

If you’re just starting to look for that perfect anniversary gift and you’ve stumbled across some bridal bouquet recreation examples here at Love Is Blooming, it might be helpful to hear what someone else had to say about the process! Here’s what Jessica had to say:

Working with Erin was a great experience. She was very responsive in her communication and was able to recreate my wedding bouquet from several pictures I sent her over email. Her passion and knowledge really showed. When I received my recreated wedding bouquet, I fell in love with it all over again! The flowers were gorgeous and it looked just like my original bouquet. I was amazed as to how real the silk flowers looked. I have my bouquet displayed in my home and I smile every time I see it. It brings back great memories of my wedding day. I would definitely recommend Love is Blooming as it was a great experience from start to finish. If you are thinking about using silk flowers or are wanting a recreation of a bouquet, use Erin at Love is Blooming, you will not be disappointed.

Unique Cascading Bridal Bouquet Recreation in Silk Flowers

Bridal bouquet recreations in silk flowers are always a fun adventure for me. When I receive an email requesting a quote, it’s interesting to see what shows up in the photographs I’m sent. This awesome bouquet for Shane’s wife is a unique cascading bridal bouquet that featured some beautiful colors, textures and lots of Seeded Eucalyptus. You can see from the photos that the flowers were unwrapped on the handle and since I couldn’t really replicate the water containers either, I knew we’d have to make a change. Here’s a look at the recreation and the original.

Hi Erin,
I received the bouquet today. It is magnificent!!

Perfect timing, too, as our anniversary is this Wednesday (and it’s killing me to keep it a secret now that it’s here).

My wife decided to start celebrating early by surprising me with a gift on the weekend, and she mentioned that she has another gift for Wednesday. She was teasing me that she was going to “win” this anniversary. :)

Of course her gifts are great, but she has no idea what she is up against here...she is going to be stunned by this bouquet!

Thanks so much for the amazing work and terrific service!

The beautiful bouquet had a mix of white Hydrangea, yellow Rose buds, lavender Roses, peach/pink Roses with tons of seeded Eucalyptus. We couldn’t quite tell what the original ribbon was, so I gave Shane a couple of suggestions that would maintain the original style and complement the flowers and he picked what he thought would look good on the bouquet. Here’s a close up of the bow detail.
