Wedding Trends: Bridesmaid Bouquets 2015

When choosing the bridesmaids blooms, there are many options to choose from. From small arrangements to modern corsages, the choices are limitless, and the central theme of the wedding can shine through each bouquet. Here are some trending bridesmaid bouquets for 2015!

Rustic Garden

Fairytale blooms full of hanging greens and a complementary color to that of the bride’s add to the rustic theme of a vintage wedding.

Just Picked

A small bouquet of wildflowers with greens add a “just-picked” flair to a garden party wedding.

Bridal Mini

Choose a miniature version of the bridal bouquet for all the bridesmaids. Use shorter stems and blooms to complement the overall floral look.

Single Stems

For a modern take, consider single stems of long flowers such as calla lilies or hydrangeas. They will stand out without upstaging the bridal bouquet.

The bridesmaids bouquets can be as simple or as elegant as desired, but always make sure the bridal bouquet stands out the most! For more great ideas and tips, visit the Bloomin’ Blog!

Unique Wedding Bouquets

Unique Wedding Bouquets

It’s no secret brides are looking for something out-of-the-box when it comes to their wedding. In the last three years, traditional weddings have declined by as much as 30%. Brides are opting for more of a personal and stylish look to make their dream wedding truly unique. While most brides keep with the traditional white dress, it’s the bouquet that really packs the punch of pizazz. In this article, we will show you some really unusual wedding bouquets spotted at florist conventions all across the US.

Bride’s Bouquet Attention To Detail

Brides Bouquet Details Blue Wedding Bouquet

The above bouquets are truly phenomenal because of their attention to detail and texture. The pink bouquet must be seen in full size to appreciate it’s details. Sure, they are both non-traditional bouquets, but imagine just how much these would POP against a wedding dress. I’d imagine the bride with the pink bouquet would be down-to-earth and quirky with a unique style all her own. The bride with the blue bouquet would be a little more classy and sophisticated, with a bit of a wild side that loves glitz and glam.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to designing your wedding bouquet. It is a way to really show your personality. If you love nature and the outdoors, tie in a few twigs and rustic elements and top it off with garden ivy. (like the pink bouquet above) Or if you love all-things-bling this blue bouquet is for you. It’s rare blue color and interesting sea holly flowers just scream style, and the added trails of flashy gems put this bouquet over the top!

Elements of Design: Floral Bouquet Centerpieces

Whether a budget-oriented bride or not, being able to use wedding decorations in many areas is always a big perk. Many florists are starting to use bouquets (bridesmaids or bridal) as centerpieces on the main table at the wedding. This is a way to keep the bridesmaids bouquets and wedding bouquets fresh before and after the ceremony. Plus, the bridesmaids are able to just snatch the bouquets out of the water and take them home as a wedding favor!

Using unique vases and containers takes this technique to the next level. Showcase the floral bouquets just a little better with a beautiful vase. Creative containers simultaneously keep the flowers fresh and bring to life all of the effort put into creating the beautiful bouquets.

This idea also works for parties such as bachelorette parties. These bouquets liven up the party decorations and also make great party favors! It’s a win-win for hostesses and guests.

This design technique has become a very popular trend in wedding flowers and is seeing an increase at parties. Florists are happy to showcase their prized creations for a little longer. Brides and hostesses are glad to save a few bucks but still have an elegant, beautiful wedding or party. If you’re looking for a quick centerpiece idea, try this trendy new design technique!

The Perfect Wedding Flower Details

It has often been said that “the glory is in the details”, and this statement is perhaps never more true than it is when planning the floral designs for a wedding. The flowers provide the perfect opportunity for a bride to express her personal style and taste, and with the help of a professional florist, the wedding designs can be endowed with creative, memorable details that will delight her guests. Creative flourishes and finishing touches truly do set the tone for the wedding decor.

Personal Flower Details

Personal Flowers - Vintage-style Floral HatThe personal flowers — designed to be worn or carried — are seen at close range and present many possibilities for exquisite detailing. The flower girl, for example, is the member of the wedding party who stands out as a darling little accent among the others. Instead of the traditional basket of petals to toss, she might carry a delicate garland of smilax, rose petals, and ribbons, with a circlet in her hair to match. Or a dangling pomander of sweetheart roses; a tulle and lace- covered ring accented with ivy and stephanotis blooms; or even a tiny pocketbook, covered in moss and embellished with spring blossoms.

Ring Bearer Details

Accessories for the ring bearer, himself another special highlight among the wedding party, could include an ivy or moss-covered pillow upon which a bird’s nest cradles the rings; or a satin pillow, densely bordered with heather or statice embedded with small jewels to reflect light. Rather than an ordinary rose bud, his boutonniere (as well as those of the other gentlemen) could consist of a miniature cluster of tiny flowers such as muscari, sweet william, brodiea, and narcissus florets. Or replace the boutonniere with a floral pocket square actually an index card edged with small blossoms that extend above the lip of the jacket pocket.
