With floral inspiration all around us, it can definitely be a challenge narrowing down floral design when it comes to your wedding day. With the onslaught of social media and Pinterest and the ubiquitous accessibility of content available to us, there really is seemingly endless possibility. So, while we may not be florists ourselves, we’ve seen it all from monochromatic florals to fun and festive tropical floral design, and are here to walk you through the design process—starting with all things floral!
With some guidance, we are here to help you pinpoint your floral aesthetic, allowing you to design the perfect bridal bouquet, complimenting floral arrangements for your wedding party, your ceremony arch, and your reception florals. Your bouquet style should remain consistent with the personality and overall aesthetic of your event. If your flowers are over the top, your bouquet should be dramatic and complementary to that grand style. Or, if your style is more of an earthy, organic vibe, style your bouquet to be wild and textured. Sizing is also an important factor to consider. Be sure to take your personal size into account when designing your perfect bouquet. If you are a petite build, don’t create something too large—the bouquet will be heavy and uncomfortable to carry for a long period of time, which is the last thing you’d want on your special day!
One last note, don’t forget to personalize your stems! This is a perfect place to get sentimental and add a personal item to your day. Add your grandmother’s locket or a family member’s handkerchief or brooch to the stems. This way you can carry a remembrance or heirloom throughout the day with the comfort that your loved ones are close by and are a part of your celebration, even if they are no longer with you.
