Fall Wedding Bouquet, Boutonniere and Cake Topper Recreation in Silk Flowers

Technically it’s still fall here in Minnesota. But I’m currently looking at snow on the ground and my kids have already made numerous sets of snow angels in the last week. So I’m bringing us back for a hot second to that little glorious bit of fall we had before the white stuff started. Maybe where you are it’s still all red and gold and pretty. This post is a little bit fall and a whole lot of pretty.

Clare contacted me a few months ago to recreate a couple special arrangements for her one year anniversary. She sent over a photo of the original wedding bouquet and boutonniere as well as a photo of her wedding cake. Clare wanted a recreation in silk flowers of just a small cluster of flowers made to match the bouquet and boutonniere to use for their anniversary. With pictures in hand, I got to work.

Here is our lovely couple on their wedding day. You can see the beautiful variety of fall flowers in the bouquet and how that was mirrored in the groom’s boutonniere. There were Sunflowers, Hypericum Berries, orange and red Roses, Seeded Eucalyptus, and fall foliage.

...words cannot express how beautiful they are!! They are even prettier in person if that was possible! I love how you even captured how the sunflower in the center was a little squished in there!! They look exactly like my real ones!! Thank you so so so much!!

We added burlap to both arrangements for that perfect rustic touch.

Spring Planning for Fall Flowers

Ok, so Spring has officially sprung. But, maybe you just got engaged and are looking into planning your wedding for fall.  If so, then this post is for you!

Ellie worked with me to design her fall silk wedding flowers just a week and half before their laid back, up North nuptials. She wasn't picky, liked a vintage vibe, and really hoped to incorporate her favorite flower, the Magnolia. Oh, and her other big request was that she really wanted twigs. Like really, really wanted twigs.

Take a look at what we came up with for her bouquet:

Bridal Bouquet: orange Dahlias, purple Roses, cream Magnolia, green Hydrangea, burgundy mini Zinnias, fall leaves, and twigs.

Bridesmaid Bouquet: orange Dahlias, purple Roses, green Hydrangea, burgundy mini Zinnias, fall leaves, and twigs.

These boutonnieres were some of my favorites.  We incorporated rustic looking Succulents with the mini Zinnias, and a fall leaf instead of the traditional greenery.  I also added a Magnolia bud into the groom's boutonniere.

The mothers' corsages had a purple Rose, a bit of green Hydrangea, a burgundy mini Zinnia, and fall leaves.  All the arrangements were finished off with twine on the stems, a detail that fit into the rustic and organic feel they were going for.  Thanks again to Justin and Ellie for letting me be a part of your big day!
