Fall Flowers in a Bridal Bouquet Recreation in Silk Flowers

When someone requests a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers, it’s not just about finding the right amount of wedding flowers and putting them into the right shape. There is color, texture, variety, and composition to consider. David’s wife’s bouquet was a good example of finding the perfect elements to get the perfect result. Take a look!

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!
— David | Oklahoma

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!

Bridal Bouquet Framed Keepsake

While I’ve done lots and lots of bridal bouquet recreations in silk wedding flowers over the years, this is the first time I helped a bride DIY her own keepsake. I thought it was a very creative way to bring in several elements from her wedding all in one neat idea.

Jessica contacted me looking for ivory Calla Lilies, blue Dendrobium Orchids, teal Hydrangea and white Stephanotis. Those were all types of flowers in her original bridal bouquet. She had some shadowboxes that she wanted to get crafty with and I think it’s an awesome idea!

Hey Erin! I absolutely LOVED the flowers! They were great quality and worked perfectly with my project.

Bridal Bouquet Recreation Review

Summer is here in Minnesota and here’s a bouquet that is vibrant, fun, and looks like someone walked through the garden to gather up that perfect wedding flowers for a summer wedding. Christian emailed me hoping I could do a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers for his upcoming anniversary. He sent me a few photos and we identified all the lovely blooms and I got to work. Take a look!

Working with Erin was a pleasure. She was very prompt and always very nice in replying while planning and tweaking the bouquet recreation. The whole process was very simple and could not have been easier. The final product was beautiful, she perfectly captured my wife’s wedding bouquet. I couldn’t recommend her more!

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.

Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreation and Substitutions

When Christopher emailed me photos of his wife’s bouquet, I knew I was up for a challenge. The colors and variety of flower were stunningly beautiful, but also unique. There were peachy roses, a bit of ivory Hydrangea, pink/purple Waxflower, Veronica, tropical grass and greenery, a teal accent flower and the elusive Leucodendron. I knew there were going to be a couple of items that were going to be tricky to find for this silk bridal bouquet recreation, and in the end a substitution would need to be made. But take a look at the end result of this awesome bouquet recreation!

This bouquet was both a unique shape and composition and one that challenged me in some new and exciting ways! I couldn’t find the right shape of rose bud, so I found a peony bud that made the perfect stand in. Then, that Leucodendron stared me down in all it’s burgundy glory. I couldn’t find one that was the right size or color, so I put on my crafty thinking cap and came up with a plan. To get it just right, I had to piece together several of the same type of flower and dye it to the right shade to get just the right look. Sometimes it takes some extra creativity, but it’s always worth it in the end!

This stunner made it’s way to a military base in Japan for a sweet anniversary gift! If you are looking for just the right anniversary gift, a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers is absolutely the right choice! And if you’re worried about a unique design or flower getting in the way, fear not! Contact me today for more information!

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!

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 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.

Green and White Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreation

This silk bridal bouquet recreation was such a vibrant breath of color and loveliness in the middle of a dark and rainy fall. John’s wife had a beautiful bouquet of Hydrangea, Orchids, Calla Lilies and Queen Anne’s Lace, tied off with crisp white ribbon. Take a look!

These flowers were the perfect gift for our anniversary! They turned out amazing! They are beautiful and will be around forever to remind us of our special day.
Thanks Erin!

Wedding Bouquet Preservation Fail

Sadly, I receive emails like this fairly often, “Our fridge broke when we were on our honeymoon and my wife's wedding bouquet died! She was hoping to have it preserved.” Sometimes it’s a fridge mishap or the preservation process doesn’t end up looking as beautiful as anticipated. If you’re in that boat, I can help!

Dustin was the one that sent me that email and I was happy to help him recreate his wife’s beautiful bouquet in time for a Christmas gift. This elegant bouquet was made up of the elegant Gardenia and some greens. Simple and gorgeous! I found some exceptionally realistic fresh touch flowers that were perfect, since they were the focal point!

After our wedding, my wife put her bouquet in our refrigerator because she was hoping to have it preserved. We returned from our honeymoon to a broken fridge and the bouquet had completely rotted! Erin was able to recreate the bouquet beautifully and it’s actually hard to tell that the flowers are not real. Erin is professional, transparent, and a pleasure to work with. I am sure my wife is going to be ecstatic when she receives the bouquet on Christmas. I highly recommend using Love is Blooming!

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.

Dusty Miller in Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreation

One thing I’ve noticed is the current rise in popularity of non-green greenery! Confused yet? So think of all the extras that don’t happen to be green but add visual interest and texture to your wedding flowers. One of the most popular items to include is either Lamb’s ear or Dusty Miller, which comes in a variety of shapes and colors. For this bridal bouquet I needed the broad leaf variety to recreate this look just perfectly.

David’s bouquet recreation was a very classic style white bouquet of Roses, Hydrangea, Ranunculus and Dusty Miller. That added bit of “greenery” gave a soft touch to the whole bouquet, and also served to break up the white flowers. It was so elegant!

Working with Erin at Love is Blooming was wonderful. The service was top of the line being professional, quick, and very knowledgeable. She was able to easily identify the correct floral arrangement to create from just a few pictures, and the finished product is one that looks fantastic and realistic. I would recommend Love is Blooming for anyone who is interested in recreating an icon piece from their special event or even start with one that will last forever, forgoing cut flowers from the get go. Thank you Erin!

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!
