Florist Predict The Royal Wedding Bouquet

Royal Wedding Bouquet

SAVE THE DATE for the Royal Wedding coming up April 29th at Westminster Abbey. Sure, you may not get to be there in person, but I know we will all be watching or reading all about it for months to come.

FLORISTS: Now is your chance to be involved in this historic, Royal event. Think of how YOU would create Kate’s wedding bouquet by wedding florist Rob Van Helden for her magical day. Would you use classic white, or something more bold and colorful?

How To Enter: Create a bouquet fit for a queen, and post pictures of it on our Facebook Wall of in the comments of this blog post. You can use pictures of past bouquets you think are spectacular enough for Kate’s big day.

How To Win: Once everyone in the world has seen Kate’s wedding bouquet on April 29th (Unless there is an official preview earlier), we will take a look at our entries and see which florist’s bouquets were the closest. Those florists (and their websites) will be featured, on our blog and in our Newsletter.

This is a friendly competition from Flower Shop Network for all of our florist friends. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Possible Influences of the Bouquet:

  • Perhaps they will use the colors of Great Brittan’s flag in the Royal Wedding flowers?
  • April is known for spring flowers. Daffodils are blooming in the royal parks along the planned procession route.
  • The wedding reception will be held at Buckingham Palace and will be hosted by Her Majesty The Queen.
  • Princess Diana’s cascading bouquet featured gardenias, stephanotis, yellow roses, freesia and ivy from the Royal Gardens. Will Kate do the same?

This post is brought to you by local Grand Rapids MI florists.

    White Roses are always stunning when there’s a bride holding them!
    This lovely bouquet danced down the aisle last summer :)

  6. Very beautiful Jacque! Thank you!

  7. A bouquet fit for a queen… This is my vision of Kate’s royal wedding bouquet: It consists of Vendela Roses, White Calla Lillies, Hyncinth Muscari, White Spidermums and White tulips. The stem is wrapped with a dark blue ribbon with a white seam embellished with swarovski crystals.

  8. I’m guessing all white hand-tied modern cascade of rich lush flowers; lily of the valley, David Austin roses, orchids (phals, dendros), perhaps ranunculas &/or freesia for added texture.

    My pic reflects the textural feeling & color, not the style.
