Erin’s work is amazing - you can tell how much care she takes, and what an eye for form and color she has. I am deeply impressed with how faithful her recreation is, her detail and passion, and how easy and pleasant she is to work with. My wife and I were both floored when we opened up the finished bouquet!

This bouquet had Dahlia, Calla Lilies, Roses in several hues of coral, orange and red, Hypericum berries, Gerbera Daisies, Seeded Eucalyptus and some twigs that wrapped around the outside of the bouquet. What a great fall bouquet!

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!

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.

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!

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!!

Minneapolis Bridal Bouquet Color of the Year: Greenery

I have to admit that when I heard Pantone chose Greenery as their bridal bouquet color of 2017, I was a little disappointed. Not only is it a difficult color to find actual flowers in, it also feels a little like a copout for those of us in the wedding industry since all we would have to do is suggest a bride adds, well...some greenery. 

This not quite lime or kelly or spring green is a little mysterious to me. Yet, it follows closely behind it's siblings Rose Quartz and Serenity (blue) that Pantone dubbed its 2016 colors of the year. 

So, what to do, what to do?

Minneapolis_Bridal_Bouquet_colors.jpg

This feels contrived, but greenery of course! For those of you on the anti-greenery wagon, I assure you that we are not, in fact, receding into the 90's era of weddings where we saw such craziness as this:

Surely even Mariah regrets this one.

Surely even Mariah regrets this one.

I've been receiving many inquiries from brides, beginning last year, that have requested more greenery. We aren't talking the tired variegated ivy of Mariah's day. Rather, the luxurious textures of Silver Dollar Eucalyptus, Lamb's Ear, Succulents, Seeded Eucalyptus, and even Pine branches.

This year is all about taking that greenery and upping the ante for a fresh-from-the- garden look. It's rethinking the rustic style with less twigs and berries and more flowing lines. And the great thing about Greenery is that it goes with any season.

If you're looking for a way to incorporate Greenery, or greenery (boy, that's confusing) into your wedding design scheme, fill out the Free Bride's Checklist with all the details you can think of. And while you're waiting to hear back about how many Aunts and Uncles need flowers, check out the blog to see examples of greenery in action.
