Monthly Archives: April 2012

Despite the fact that current wedding trends are largely based on fabric decorations, fresh flower arrangements are still in. The contemporary bride still has many options when it comes to unique real flower bouquets. There are many ways to exploit the natural beauty of flowers for a wedding and out designers have a myriad of ideas waiting on the line. So don’t rush into saying that floral arrangements are outdated or too traditional for a real modern wedding.

We have a few gorgeous flower bouquet designs to share with those who are planning a warm season wedding. Spring is the most delightful time of year to get married. The nature is brought back to life once again after the long months of winter and the most beautiful flowers are in bloom. We would personally choose this season just to benefit of all the gorgeous flower assortments available in this time of year. Among the most adorable spring blooms you can choose for your wedding bouquet we mention: peonies, anemones, narcissuses or daffodils, lilacs, hyacinths, garden roses, pansies, violets, lilies of the valley, hydrangeas, tulips, Billy Balls, gladiolas and sweet peas. These are among our favorite assortments for a bridal bouquet and for other décor arrangements or table centerpieces.

If you are one of those romantic brides who want something special for her wedding you can use cherry blossoms. Make it your wedding theme and incorporate cherry branches in all important wedding items. Choose a pink and brown color scheme and keep things soft and elegant. We don’t recommend fabric or paper flowers for a spring wedding because this season is the best expression of naturalness and freshness. It wouldn’t be wise to use artificial blooms when the entire nature is in full bloom! The naturalness of the flowers will enhance the romanticism and elegance of your wedding décor and also highlight your precious beauty. Using seasonal flowers is always the best way to go when planning a spring wedding.

Those who are on a budget have even more reasons to make this choice because the blooms that are available in the month of your wedding are cheaper. They are easier to purchase and fresher in looks. We adore spring flowers because they are feminine and delicate and also very fragrant. The most perfumed flowers are in spring, so why not take advantage of this quality and make it part of your wedding! The majority of modern brides choose to wear a simple wedding dress at their spring wedding. If you’re planning on doing this too, opt for a petite or simpler bouquet to complement the design of the dress. A hand-tied arrangement of petite blooms would be perfect in this case.

The modern bride has a lot of options when it comes to her wedding flowers. The trends promoted nowadays are all inspired by nature and seasons. This is why the floral arrangements look so vibrant, so fresh and natural. The simple organic look is the most sought-after and we are happy to see that even the most traditional brides are wiling to quit the elaborated standard style and opt for something trendier for their wedding. If you are one of these brides, looking to escape the predictable classic style, the best path to go is the color path. Don’t change the flowers but the colors of your bouquet.

This is the number one rule to keep in mind when planning a modern wedding bouquet or floral arrangement. The theme we’re proposing your today is very soft and elegant and it can suit perfectly well both indoor and alfresco weddings. We’re talking about the white and green theme. These lovely colors make a fine team and they can be used in all wedding supplies. Now, choosing the most adequate type of green is a problem to solve in time for the wedding.

The green palette is very rich and features many shades and derived nuances that you can choose from. White goes well with anything, so don’t hesitate you pick your favorite hue. Don’t forget to take into consideration the formality of the wedding when making this choice. The season and the venue can also or should influence you in making the best selection. For instance, if you’re planning a hot summer beach wedding, the best green would be the emerald or lime green. If you’re having a forest wedding at the end of summer, choose a forest or hunter green theme.

For spring affairs we recommend sage and mint green. Get inspired from the tonality and vibrancy of the venue. White and green themes are ideal for alfresco affairs. You can choose any type of location: a garden, a park, an open field, a vineyard, an orchard, a backyard, a forest or even a mountain top. For a sheltered wedding in case of rain choose a greenhouse. If you’re using one of these locations you don’t even need to spend much money on the décor.

Allow the beauty of the landscape make up for the backdrop for your ceremony and reception. Use white and green flower centerpieces to embrace the naturalness of the nature. White is a popular color for flowers and you can find any assortment you like in this shade. Green is more pretentious and it is available for only a few blooms. You can find green in gerbera daises, chrysanthemums or mums, roses, succulents, carnations, sage leaves and other greenery.

More and more stylists and wedding designers recommend modern couples to plan their wedding by color. There are so many options out there for this trend that even the most pretentious or exigent taste can be fulfilled! You are free nowadays to choose your favorite color or theme, or get inspired from something rather less popular or unusual. The choices are many but they are always personal when it comes to weddings. When planning a wedding by theme the results are always fascinating. It doesn’t really matter whether the theme is classic or modern, simple or sophisticated.

The important thing is to use the most adequate motifs or accents that reflect the theme in the most accurate way. We have a few ideas for those who are interested in planning a cheerful wedding. We recommend the yellow color because it is fresh and vivid. Modern couples love vibrant color-schemes because they are powerful and eye-catchy. When planning the wedding flowers by color you have to make sure the hues you picked are the most adequate ones. The palette of hues is not very rich when it comes to the yellow color. You can find soft and darker hues, but not too many derived shades. So this choice won’t be very hard.

We have a few beautiful yellow wedding bouquet ideas for brides who are interested in this theme. The first bouquet is inspired by the classic style. Although yellow is not the most traditional color, we think that this arrangement looks very elegant and adequate for a classic themed wedding. This yellow bouquet is for spring weddings as it is composed of real ranunculuses, tulips, narcissuses and poppies. This arrangement is subtly beautiful and also very seductive due to its amazing fragrance. The arrangement is rich but small and simplistic. It can suit perfectly well a delicate bride.

The wide ribbon adds more sophistication and elegance to the overall design. We like the subtle hints of green added to this bouquet. The second arrangement contains fresh daffodils and it is more natural. Those who are planning an outdoors wedding and want something casual, simple and chic can use yellow daffodils. They are beautifully fragrant and ideal for spring-summer celebrations. Simple brides who don’t want anything too heavy for their ceremony should definitely take into consideration wearing a similar sweet & elegant bouquet.

Modern brides are called to experience different themes and styles for their wedding. The options are so many and varied that many of them take months to select and plan the best one for their wedding. The themes promoted nowadays are usually inspired by the wedding venue, by the season, by a color or a favorite thing of the couple. This theme is then incorporated or used throughout the ceremony and reception.

Starting with the wedding invitations and ending up with the wedding cake and favors, the theme should be reflected the best way possible. If the theme of your wedding is based on a certain color, we suggest you plan it all with more precaution. There are many bold colors that can look strident or flashy when used in excess or in the wrong combination. The flowers are the ones that can feature a certain color in the most attractive and efficient way. All-white weddings are still trendy but it seems that our modern brides prefer the colorful look. So they decide to replace the traditional white bouquet with a colored one. If you want your bouquet to look fresh and elegant we suggest you get inspired from the season of your wedding.

The seasonal look is ideal for outdoors weddings and for those who want a more specific style. Autumn is one of the seasons that can help a bride compose a rich and vibrant bouquet. There are many beautiful blooms available in fall that can make sensational choices for your wedding. The color palettes range from rich reds and oranges to lush browns and yellows. The sensation of depth provided by a fall colored wedding bouquet can be very flattering for a bride. Use the colored foliage of autumn if you want to obtain a seasonal successful look.

We enjoy the colors of autumn because they are not muted but vivid and most of all very dramatic. The pastel shades are also in trend, but if you want a more extravagant look, go for the bold palettes. Choose the colors first and then look for the most adequate flowers to reflect them. Reds and purples are great for bold brides. If you want a spring-summery look, use hunter or forest greens and yellows. They make a fabulous fresh pair. Browns and golds are ideal for royal or luxurious weddings.

Among the trendiest flowers for fall weddings we mention the following ones: gerbera daises, chrysanthemums, zinnias, roses, yarrows, amaryllises, irises, narcissuses, winter jasmines, viburnum, holly, Daphne, hyperricum and primula.

You don’t need a real reason to renounce at flowers and use another attractive item for your wedding bouquet. This trend is very popular, although not all brides and designers adhere to it with all their heart. The truth is that there is nothing more romantic and elegant in a wedding than the flowers. And the range of assortments that you can choose from is very wide.

There are many unique blooms out there to select for your bridal bouquet. But if you care for something more modern and unconventional, then an alternative wedding bouquet might be the right way to go. There are brides who can’t stand flowers because they are allergic and develop different irritations when sitting near fresh blooms. If flowers make you sneeze, then it would be best to opt for something artificial or crafty. You should not be afraid of embracing something different from the traditional bouquet. There are no more hard and fast rules to abide when it comes to these types of things.

Modern weddings are more relaxed and also more original than ever before. This means that the contemporary bride has total freedom when it comes to making the best decisions regarding the things she wants to wear. And besides this, no one said that the bride must necessarily wear a bouquet of natural blooms at her wedding. The important thing is for her to carry something symbolic, thematic or personal. Giving the fact that 2012 weddings are so personalized, it’s obvious that the bride might prefer something that can reflect her individuality and favorite style or item.

The only rule to follow is to use your own imagination and let yourself be carried away by the flow. This is the best time to get creative and use all your tips and tricks to obtain your favorite ideal look. The bouquet should also mirror the style, formality and theme of the wedding. One great alternative to the classic floral bouquet is the fan bouquet. Those of you who are lucky to be planning an outdoors wedding during the summertime can take into consideration carrying a fan in their hands instead of a real flower bouquet. You can design your own fan to match the colors and details of the gown you’re wearing.

The fan can be fun and playful or elegant and dramatic. Besides this, your fan bouquet will also offer you a nice and feminine breeze during the hot wedding. If you want something funkier, opt for a button wedding bouquet. Choose the right one based on your favorite colors, shapes and fabrics. Button blooms are versatile accessories for a modern offbeat bride. Brooches and feathers are other unique items to consider for a non-floral bouquet.

Among the wedding themes that are often used nowadays by our modern couples is the rustic theme. The country style is very trendy because it allows the bride to play freely with different colors and decorative items and create a more relaxing and fun party for the guests. These types of weddings usually take place in the countryside. But any other location in the middle of the nature can suit the rustic flair: parks, gardens, open meadows, backyards, forests, mountain tops, greenhouses, orchards, vineyards, farmhouses, ranches, etc.

This style is some times confounded or associated with the western style. But not in all cases it is appropriate to use the cowboy inspiration for a modern rustic wedding, especially for those that occur in the city. If you want a modern and fresh wedding, try to keep things rustic-chic and elegant. You can get inspired by the bohemian and vintage style and create an old-fashion or antique rustic wedding. The results will be stunning, we guarantee you. The subject for today is based on rustic wedding bouquets. And we feel very happy to share with you these amazing bouquets.

There are many ways to incorporate the rustic touch in a wedding. We suggest you to focus on a single motif or central item, like flowers, wood or another accessory you favor. If you are having a woodland wedding, it would be nice to play with birch, twigs and branches and other wood elements of décor. Use wildflowers if you care for a romantic and natural setting. Wheat and hay are other inspired choices for a rustic wedding setting. When it comes to bouquets, perhaps the most adequate style would be the organic style.

Use flowers available in the season of your wedding to obtain a natural look. In most cases, rustic affairs occur in late summer or autumn seasons. Anything ruffled and lush like gerbera daises, dahlias, chrysanthemums, roses and carnations will suit. The colors that can reflect the rustic theme are those with an earthy tone. Rust, gold, rich red, deep yellow, tan, chocolate brown, cinnamon, gold, sage, eggplant, aubergine, burgundy or celadon are great choices in this case. They can help you add a country touch to your wedding ensemble.

If you prefer something relatively softer or more feminine, we suggest you use neutral or pastel hues, like champagne, ivory, peach, nude, cream, beige or ecru. Look for those blooms that are associated with natural environments. Sunflowers are ideal for open field or farm wedding venues. Try the black-eyed susan theme if you want something naturally rustic. Lupine and Billy Balls are also great for these types of affairs. For the centerpieces use mason jars, cans, clay pots or baskets to hold the blooms.

Planning the wedding by color represents a great opportunity of playing more fun and cheerful. Weddings are supposed to be joyful events and not somber affairs based on a lot of elegance and no fun. The couple is happy and they should try to share this happiness with their loved ones. This is what weddings are all about! Don’t miss this aspect because you will regret it later.

The best way to make the atmosphere more pleasant and inviting for the guest is to use a bright or intense color. We picked purple for today’s subject because we’ve noticed that this hue is very trendy nowadays. Many designers and event planners are using this color for their projects and we have to admit the results are pretty awesome. Purple is the color of royalty, some say. But we can interpret it in a myriad of ways.

For instance, we can refer at the fact that purple is mystical and it can add a touch of mystery to a wedding. It can help you plan a magical space for you and your guests. Purple is refined and elegant and also very sensual. We can talk about the whimsical type of romanticism it features and also about its seductive appearance. Brides of today are crazy about purple wedding themes because this color is very modern and trendy.  The purple hue looks even more appealing when combined with shades of yellow, gray, orange or lime green.

We have a few beautiful examples of purple wedding bouquets for those who are interested in this type of look. We picked different types of arrangements designed by a certain style so that you can find the one you are into. For instance, the first purple bouquet is a classic beauty. We are surprised to see that the designers used so many types of blooms and obtained such an elegant uniform style. They used light purple hydrangeas, nigella and scabiosa. This is a multi-tonal bouquet fit for a sophisticated bride who wants something dashing and rich.

The next bouquet is also lush and abundant as it features a variety of blooms: sweet peas, oregano blossoms, lilacs, lisianthus and lamb’s ear. The color palette ranges from pinkish purples to deep purple hues. We love this arrangement because it is very fragrant and beautifully textured. This is a unique choice for a unique bride. The last confection we have for you today is a modern bouquet made of fringed tulips, eggplant calla lilies, dusty miller leaves and hypericum berries. The calla lilies add a mystical touch to the bouquet and a very dramatic note. It can suit a formal wedding planned in a more rigorously elegant way and a stylish bride.
