I have to admit that this was the first time I was asked to incorporate black flowers into a bride’s custom silk wedding flowers. I was excited for the challenge, but also a little nervous that they were going to look like Morticia Addams should be walking down the aisle with them!
My bride requested that her bridal bouquet and wedding flowers included black Calla Lilies and some branchy greenery. She did a great job communicating her vision and that made my job so much easier! She also really liked a bouquet that incorporated the black Callas and these awesome white Dendrobium Orchids. They were a perfect match for her cascading bridal bouquet in silk flowers. I added in some grasses and Smilax and it was exactly what she was looking for!
Also in this order were two small Bridesmaid Bouquets that used just a handful of Callas and Orchids and enough greenery to match the bridal bouquet. These sweet little clutch bouquets were tied off black satin ribbon for a very polished look.
Here’s the toss bouquet which we simplified even more for this intimate wedding gathering.
The boutonnieres were very sleek with just a single black Calla lily and greens and a Dendrobium orchid for the groom’s boutonniere.
I tied off the bridal bouquet with Antique White ribbon for a very bridal look.
