Fall Wedding

 

Q : Hi, my name is Loretta. My fiancé and I are getting married next fall. I have never even been to a wedding before so I am not sure how everything works. I have my dress picked out.. And I know I want myself as well as my brides maids to wear flower head bands. I want mine to have a big sunflower. I know I was my bouquet to have sunflowers incorporated but that’s all I know… I was wondering if you’d be willing to give me some advice. I can show you the wedding dress I bought.
A: Dear Loretta, Thank you for contacting us! We are always happy to share our experiences and advices to the future brides. White and elegant wedding dress can never be a wrong choice! Since you are getting married during the fall what can be more matching than soft yellow and vibrant orange shades in your bridal bouquet! We have noticed that you love sunflowers so we suggest you to chose bridal bouquet filled with this big, bright and happy blooms in combination with orange alstroemeria and a few fall leaves.
We love the idea that you have chosen floral headband instead of classical wedding veil. Floral headbands became very fashionable and you can choose one that matches your colours and style.
Sunflower and its bright yellow absolutely pops up and since you may have bridal bouquet filled with this flowers, we suggest you to choose something more natural and soft for your flower head bands. We really like the second dress but we also think that it will be more inspiring and trendy if you choose a bridesmaid dresses in some other colour. What about bronze, gold or brown tones? There are endless possibilities for combining these warm colours and they will definitely capture the essence of the season.
We are hoping that our advices and ideas will be helpful for you and if you have some more questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!
Have a lovely day!

Hand-tied Bridal Bouquet

Want to create your own bridal bouquet? Just follow our simple steps!

You will need:

  • Flowers of your choice
  • Ribbon
  • Florist tape
  • Pins

Step 1:

When purchasing your flowers make sure that you buy little more than what you might need. Try to arrange flower delivery just one day before your wedding day.

Step 2:

Start with removing all leaves which will help you to pack it easier together. If you want to have nice and round bouquet it’s important that you place each flower in at a 45-degree angle. When you are happy with the finished look secure all stamps with florist tape.

Step 3:

To cover the tape, you should wrap the upper part of the flower stems with colour co-ordinating ribbon. Secure the ribbon with a couple of pins pushed through the ribbon and flower stems. For a perfect touch you might use glass headed or any other decorative pins. If you would like to have a bow, cut the separate piece of ribbon and tight it nicely just beneath the flower heads.

Citrus themed wedding

Summer is great time to get married. This summer, we are inspired by sunshine, sunflowers and fresh lemonade.  What summer theme can be more matching and trendy than yellow coloured theme! We love this lemon and soft lime shades that will add an instant lift to any traditional white wedding.

For a venue and ceremony decoration we suggest bright and beautiful  flowers such as yellow roses, sunflowers and craspedia. In order to complete look of this amazing summer theme, mix the yellow and white flowers.

Yellow bridal bouquet is perfect for attracting attention and yellow flowers are often related to happiness, compassion and trust. By adding some yellow flowers, you can make your bridal bouquet a little less formal but still stunning and elegant.

Wedding cake is just important as the wedding dress and the flowers. It’s not just about how good it tastes but also, how good it looks. Many brides and groom who are searching for non-conventional wedding are opting for a yellow wedding cake. Make your wedding cake memorable by adding yellow fondant on top or decoration inspired by yellow flowers and laces.
