Light Blue, Blush and Ivory Silk Wedding Flowers

It’s no secret that blush pink is one of the hottest colors this year for wedding flowers. It’s a great way to accentuate a darker tone in the same family or to bring in a softer, more romantic color scheme. Here’s one way that we incorporated the blush with beautiful blues and ivories into a silk bridal bouquet.

Bridal Bouquet, Jr. Bridesmaid and Bridesmaid Bouquets

We added a little bit of glamour to the bridal bouquet with a custom rhinestone wrap. It added a nice bit of shine without being over the top.

Boutonnieres and corsages matched up nicely with the bouquets with the moms getting special wrist corsages with pearl beaded bracelets.

If you’ve got a wedding color scheme of blush, blue and ivory, contact me to find out the creative ways we can incorporate those colors into custom silk wedding flowers for your big day!

Lavender Rose and Lisianthus Bridal Bouquet Recreation

Wedding bouquets are a big part of the big day. Even years later, Erik and his wife still remember the colors and arrangement of the wedding flowers she carried down the isle. As an anniversary gift, Erik requested a recreation in silk to last as long as the memory will. Here’s another awesome bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers.

Erik’s wife’s bouquet featured lavender Roses, darker purple Lisianthus and white Stephanotis. I tied it off with a simple satin Antique White ribbon wrap. So sweet and a great reminder of a special day for them. If you are looking for an anniversary gift, look no further! Contact me today about a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers.

Wedding Bouquet Recreation with Succulents

Succulents are a trend that’s sticking around. You know what else is sticking around? This bouquet! Ryan contacted me for free quote for a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers. This one was a stunner! You can see from my photos that it featured vibrant colors along with awesome textures.

White Anemone with blue centers, blue Anemone, ivory Roses, ivory Hydrangea, dark purple Calla Lilies, plum Delphinium, Succulents, and Silver Dollar Eucalyptus.

This was new to me, but apparently it’s a thing! Ryan requested a “hidden Mickey” on the handle of the bouquet. It’s basically 3 pins making the shape of Mickey’s head. Adorable!

Blush and Mauve Bridal Bouquet Recreation

Amy sent me a couple photos of her bridal bouquet. It was gorgeous and full of all sorts of beautiful flowers. She also sent me an invoice from her florist that listed some of the possible flowers that would appear in her bouquet. From that list I was able to track down just the right shades and shapes of blush and mauve Roses, Ranunculus, and Eucalyptus. Take a look!

When I received my recreated bouquet in the mail and opened it, it literally took me back to the wedding day when I first saw my bouquet. It is spectacular! Erin is extremely talented and I am so pleased to be able to enjoy this every day
— Amy | California

These two photos are a great example of why I usually ask for extra details. Amy sent me the second photo to give me a more accurate look at the colors of her flowers. That photo was great for that, but not for seeing the general shape of her bouquet, so I kind of hopped back and forth between both photos during the construction process.

Whether it’s your bouquet that got moldy when it was dried or a gift for your sweetheart to remind her of your wedding day, a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers is a great choice! Contact me today for a free quote.

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!

Blush and Ivory Bridal Bouquet Recreation

Emily’s bridal bouquet was beautiful, interesting and so romantic! Roses, Orchids, Freesia, Mums and Ruscus made this elegant bouquet so soft looking and very, well, bridal! Take a look at this amazing bouquet!

Thank you so much Erin! I absolutely love my bouquet and I’m so glad I was able to find you and your services!

I had my original bouquet on display at my house but of course after a while, since it was dried, it definitely did not look nearly as pretty as it did on my wedding day and was starting to make me feel sad. I’m so happy with how the one you recreated for me turned out - it’s as beautiful as the original from my wedding and makes me so happy to see it everyday!

Bridal Bouquet Recreation in Silk Flowers

Unless you are the bride ordering your custom bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers, some of the details may escape you. And that’s ok! There’s a couple of options if you can’t quite remember what color the ribbon was or the exact type of every little flower. In MacKenzie’s case, his mother actually built his bride’s bouquet, so he was able to pass along my questions and find out those details that would make a difference. Don’t have your mom to ask? Contact the original florist, search your emails for an invoice, or ask a bridesmaid who might be able to recall those details you are seeking out.

Here’s the bouquet!

Lilies, roses and baby’s breath. Simple, beautiful, elegant!

It was so helpful to get MacKenzie’s feedback on what was in the bouquet. For instance, from this photo, I couldn’t tell there was a small stargazer lily at the back of the bouquet. MacKenzie was able to give me a run down of all that was in the bouquet as well as the fact that the ribbon was a light pink, not coral as it appeared in his photos.

Whether you know every single element of the bouquet or just have a vague idea, contact me for a quote on what it would take to get it recreated in silk flowers. We’ll be able to capture the feeling and overall look of that special bouquet with a little teamwork!

Royal Blue, Light Blue and White Silk Wedding Flowers

I’m not gonna lie, blue is a hard color to include in silk wedding flowers. Not many flowers show up in nature in a royal blue color, but that didn’t stop me from coming up with a design for April when she emailed me this fall. She sent me a swatch of the color her bridesmaids would be wearing, some inspiration pictures of bouquets she liked and we came up with a plan. I found some beautiful blue roses to match her swatch along with some light blue roses and touches of white for in the bouquets. Take a look!

The bridal bouquet included the royal blue and light blue roses along with some white lilies. Here are some photos of the details that really added some nice touches to her bouquet. One of the accents April wanted to include were some silver hearts, an element she was incorporating into her overall theme and decor. I found some lovely little silver and rhinestone hearts and added them throughout her bouquet. April decided on matching royal blue ribbon with a bow to finish it off and it looks amazing!

The bridesmaid bouquets included the same royal blue and light blue roses, but we added in some baby’s breath for a little contrast and texture. April wanted their bouquets to be a little different, so we decided on silver ribbon to tie them off.

Another look at the details of the bridesmaid bouquets—silver rhinestone hearts and ribbon bow to match the bridal bouquet.

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.

Here’s the rundown of what all went into this stunner:

-Roses and Peonies in ivory and white.

-Special ordered handle wrap with ivory ribbon and hugely awesome rhinestone piece.

Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreation From Photos

Bill sent me a couple of photos from his wedding….52 1/2 years ago!

**First of all, can we all give him and his wife a round of applause??**

So the photos Bill sent me weren’t ideal. But he remembered some details about the flowers and colors and pretty soon his wife started chiming in with what she remembered about her bouquet. What we knew is that there were yellow Roses, white Carnations, Stephanotis, Orchids (including one with a pink center) and greenery in a cascade style bouquet. Here’s how Bill’s custom bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers turned out!

We highly recommend you...wife is ecstatic...Received the bouquet yesterday, wife is thrilled, thanks again.
— Bill | Massachusetts

This bouquet was a quick turnaround since Bill wanted to gift it to his wife for Christmas. All of our communication was over email and his quick responses made the process smooth and fast. When it was all said and done, Bill said that no local florist would attempt to recreate this bouquet in fresh flowers, which is why his search led him to me.

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.

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.

Maid of Honor and Toss Bouquets

Groom, Father, Usher Boutonnieres

Attendant and Mothers’ 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.

Raspberry and Blush Silk Wedding Flowers

Janelle’s dreamy color scheme was so fun to work with! With a wine/raspberry as her main color and blush and rosegold accents, I felt like I had endless possibilities of what to include in her silk wedding flower bouquets.

What we settled on was Dahlia, Roses, Mums, and Peonies with some burgundy Lamb’s Ear and Seeded Eucalyptus. The bridal bouquet also included raspberry Amaranthus for a dramatic edge.

The bridesmaid bouquets were a perfect complement to the bridal bouquet.

Here’s a quick peak at some of the boutonnieres and corsages to coordinate with the bouquets.

I can’t help it, here’s one more of the bridal and bridesmaid bouquet. I’m kind of in love with this modified cascade, it’s modern and eye catching without being too over the top.

Looking for a modern twist on a classic style, silk flowers offer you the ability to see it before your big day. So no surprises when it’s too late to change anything! We can tweak it until it‘s just right without risking the beauty of the flowers.

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!!
— Clare | Conneticut

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

Thanks to Clare for allowing me to help recreate such a special day for you! If you are interested in having a bouquet, boutonniere, or any other arrangement from a special day, contact me today!

Lily Silk Wedding Bouquet Recreation

Jordan emailed me photos of his wife’s beautiful wedding bouquet. He mentioned that he didn’t think it was the most wide variety of flowers, so we worked especially hard to get all those other details just right. Lilies, Alstroemeria and Roses were the only flowers in the bouquet, but a tropical mix of greenery and that amazing bow shaped it up into an awesome bouquet recreation!

Here is that beautiful, tropical beauty of a bouquet! Photos from: Edoo Photography

Erin’s work exceeded my expectations. My wife’s bouquet wasn’t as intricate as some I’ve seen so I was worried that a recreation might not have the “character” of the original, but Erin was able to match so much of the small details that it came out looking just like the real thing. Erin’s turnaround time was great, as was her communication throughout the process. I’m very happy with how it all turned out, as is my wife.

Recreations are a great way to give a thoughtful gift to someone you love. I can help with that!

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!
— Shane | Ohio

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.

If you are looking for a custom bouquet recreation in silk flowers, send me a couple of photos and let’s get started!

Bridal Bouquet Recreation in Silk Flowers Review

Erin at Love is Blooming did a great job reproducing my wife’s bridal bouquet in silk flowers for our fourth (silk) wedding anniversary. Erin was very responsive to all my questions, and we communicated seemlessly via email. The turn around time was amazing. The photos of the final product look GREAT, and I can’t wait to see it. I expect to get the silk bouquet two weeks earlier then promised. I will certainly get some big brownie points from my wife for this anniversary gift! Thanks Erin!
