We’re kicked off 2017 with our first wedding of the season! We can’t to be able to share details with you soon, but for the next few Mondays, we’re going to share our “favorites” of the past year.  Today we are starting with some of our favorite bouquets! This first one was a full and cascading cream beauty of roses, phalenopsis orchids, and ranunculus. I love the look of the “new” cascade and we have lots of brides that do also since we get quite a few requests.

This tight and textured bridesmaids bouquet was so lush and suprisingly colorful against black dresses.

There are many notes on the tradition of bride’s carrying flowers. Some stem from the not so pleasant- during the times that people took yearly baths, the flowers helped cover up the body odor of the brides (pleasant, right?). Another is that carrying herbs and pungent flowers helped ward off evil spirits and bring luck to the new couple. But the one that I like to think is the main reason is because they added to the prettiness of the bride and meant something special.

I am also loving mixing deep luxurious shades likes purples and burgundies with creams and whites for the depth that it gives.

If you are still thinking about what flowers you would like to carry, past on past folklore, there are flowers that send different meanings to your groom.

White camellias express adoration, peonies are said to bring a happy marriage, and ranunculus means that are dazzled by your future husband.

These orchid cascades carried by bridesmaid perfectly coordinated with the bridal orchid cascade bouquet.
