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.

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.

Scottish Destination Wedding Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreation

Ryan contacted me hoping to have his wife’s bouquet recreated for their early October anniversary. They were married in Scotland and the venue had used its own garden to create her beautiful bridal bouquet. She was unable to bring it back to the states with her because of those pesky air travel regulations and was understandably disappointed. So Ryan set out to surprise her with a silk recreation. Her original bouquet included ivory Roses, Scottish Thistle, Veronica, Baby’s breath, Freesia, Fern, and some small blue berries. It was a stunner!

How romantic is this?! This bouquet was such a beauty and I loved getting to remake a piece of their special day.

If your destination wedding meant you had to leave your bouquet behind, contact me today to find out what it would take to have it a silk bridal bouquet recreation made for you or your bride.

Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreation Stunner

I love all the silk bridal bouquet recreations that I get to make, but there are a few that are always just so darn amazing. When Anthony sent over some photos of his wife’s bouquet, I knew this was going to be one those hall-of-famers for me.

With its Peonies, Ranunculus, Anemone, multiple types of Roses, Thistle, Fern, Lamb’s Ear, and Smilax in such an interesting shape I couldn’t wait to get started on this one. Take a look!

Seriously…so amazing! I wish I could have kept it!

The bouquet was beautiful and spot on! You have a great eye and the bouquet is such a great recreation of the real thing. We have it in a vase on our breakfast table and love seeing it every day. It’s such a great reminder of our wedding day.

Fall Silk Bouquet Recreation with Sunflowers

Fall is such a magical time. The leaves are changing, there is cooler weather, and my favorite part: I get to bring out my sweaters! Fall is great for other reasons too: sunflowers, cozy and warm color combinations, and anniversaries. And lots of them.

Trey had me recreate his wife’s beautiful bouquet that had some classic touches of fall. Composed of Sunflowers, Zinnias, Billy Buttons, Fern, Seeded Eucalyptus, and a little green Moss makes this for a bright and sunny fall bouquet. Trey had a good eye for detail, so when it came time for me to wrap the stems, he was able to clue me in on the original material. His wife had it wrapped in blue tulle; it was her “something blue.” Cute, right? Take a look at this awesome silk bouquet recreation!

Destination Wedding Silk Flower Bouquet- Cruise Ship Edition

Well it's still winter here, but I hear that in other parts of the world it's actually pretty warm. Hard to imagine right? Maybe not if you are a Floridian, but fellow Northerners feel my pain.

Well let me give you a little something to inspire you for spring, summer or your next cruise!  LaPriece contacted me over email, then her fiance' contacted me via phone, then we all got on the phone together and had a fun chat about silk flowers for their upcoming cruise ship destination wedding.

LaPriece knew she didn't want a traditional white or ivory bouquet, she was all about adding color, texture and a more modern take on greenery. She had some concerns about how to get the bouquet on the ship in one piece. I told her about some of my other destination wedding couples and methods we've used in the past for transporting flowers and keeping them in tact.

After exchanging a few emails full of inspiration pictures, I came up with an original design for their big day. Take a look at this bright and happy bouquet and matching groom's boutonniere.

SO many beautiful flowers and colors! Ranunculus, Roses, Hydrangea, Snowball bush, Peonies, Queen Anne's Lace, Fern, Freesia and ivory ribbon to tie it all together.

Happily, I have the silk bouquet of my dreams. Thanks to LOVE IS BLOOMING. They worked with me to create a beautiful bouquet. That might actually outstage my fabulous dress. That’s an awesome problem to have. Erin sent plenty of pictures. Had a lot of great ideas and insights. Gave me good advice about packing and shipping. And was always available for my questions. True artistry, many thanks to LOVE IS BLOOMING!
