Loving The Bouquets

We all know bridal tastes change, and we see that pretty easily in the new dresses that come out each season. The style of flowers a bride carries changes too, but I don’t think it's as obvious or noticed.  Right now on Pinterest I am seeing there are not as many bouquets designed with just one flower, or a ball of tight flowers.  I think we have turned a corner on bridal bouquets styles; from the flower ball on a stick, which is nice, but has gotten a little regular, to these wild free-form bouquets that have all sorts of flowers and greenery going all sorts of directions.

I love it!

The new bouquets are usually pretty big, but somehow they don’t overwhelm because they don’t take themselves too seriously.  The silk bouquets I have sold recently are a good example of bouquets that are a rich, lush mixture of a whole bunch of different flowers and greenery, sometimes 15 different stems of all sorts of flowers and greens. They are simply gathered together, and tied loosely with a ribbon.

I do have to suggest you do these lush, rich bouquets in silk flowers from www.DestinationBouquetByDorian.com, because  I don’t know how they keep a lot of those field greens from wilting…they aren’t really meant to be cut so they may wilt fast. Clematis vine is beautiful in a bouquet, but that just wilts out of water.  The everlasting silk bouquets have as much movement and interest as fresh and after the wedding they would look fabulous in a vase as a lasting memento of  your wedding.

As always, I have a few new wedding sites I have found and enjoyed:

Weddingbee.com has a lot of fun articles and a forum to exchange ideas and wedding items with other brides.

And DisneyWedding.com.  Not really my style but just a lot of fun to look at.  They do sell really cute flower girl dresses, with big satin sashes, or maybe you do want a coach with bewigged footmen to deliver you to your wedding!

Enjoy the journey.

BEST REGARDS, DORIAN
