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.

Silk flowers Inspired by example bouquet...Part I

It's pretty common for brides to come to me with some sort of inspiration already shaping their ideas for their flowers. In some cases, it's just a vague idea and sometimes it's pretty clear. Then you get brides like Jennifer who end up having a little bit of each.

I had the pleasure of doing a consult with Jennifer and her fiance since they live in the same town as me. At our first meeting we talked about her wedding flower ideas which boiled down to ivory callas with somehow tying in her dark purple accent color to some of the arrangements. For several months we hunted around for orchids or some other flower in a good color match. But because of the depth of the color we couldn't find a great match in callas so we had to come up with plan B--tie it all together, literally, using purple ribbon. What we found was a perfect color match to the swatch she had given me. We found some dark purple hydrangea brought the accent color into the centerpieces, corsages, and also really added a punch of color to her beautiful altar garland.

Jennifer was pretty open to my design suggestions and when it came down to the details, she wasn't feeling picky, but she also wasn't sure what she wanted. Then she found a picture of a ballerina wrap on a bouquet that looked almost identical to hers. It was a perfect fit for her style, her bouquet, and her wedding. For Jennifer, it wasn't about mimicking an entire design set she had seen somewhere, she wanted her flowers to reflect her personality and her tastes, so when she found something she loved, she wasn't afraid to ask for it. Her flowers turned out absolutely beautiful...check back to see more of the finished products.
