Congratulations Nico and Chantal! We wish you nothing but happiness and love!

The Bridal Bouquet

By | Wedding Flowers, Wedding Inspiration, Wedding Planning | No Comments

In history, herbs and spices were used during weddings to ward off evil spirits.  Ancient Greeks and Romans would wrap a garland of spices and herbs around the Bride and Groom to symbolize new life, hope, and fertility. As time progressed, the fragrances became more meaningful. Eventually, the “flower language” was invented. Romantic lovers used flowers to communicated their feelings instead of letters…hopefully they spoke the same language! (I’m sure there were plenty of mix ups there) Nowadays, couples choose the flowers for their weddings because they like them. It’s all about personal style now; flowers are so beautiful, we’re glad we can pick what we want! We’ve put together some styles of the bridal bouquet that are perfect for any Bride.

One of the most helpful things to do when choosing your flowers is to have a consultation with your florist to discuss the flowers that are in season. They can even help you save money by using more cost effective flowers and still get the look you want! Good luck and happy planning!

Winter Wedding Color Palettes 

It’s beginning to look a lot like…winter. Finally! We are thirsty for some rain and weather change here in Southern California and the weddings are ready to change right along with mother nature. The cozy months of winter allow for so many great color options that are inviting and just as beautiful as any spring or summer palette.

Rosey Reds- Reds are a traditional favorite for the winter time; but traditional doesn’t mean boring. Red is the color of love and passion. With compliments of blue hues, blush’s, or greens it softens the red making this palette completely winter appropriate.

Icy Blues- The best part about colors is that there are so many! We love that different shades evoke different feelings and atmosphere’s. If you’re wanting to be a Frozen Princess, you don’t have to “let it go” just because there is no white on the ground; the ice blue color ties in the winter feel without the snow fall.

Midnight blues- For a more dramatic flair, go for a deeper blue palette. This is the perfect compliment to the night sky looking at the stars.

Natural Greens- Have you ever heard the term, “shake what your mama gave you?” Well the same principle applies here! Use the inspiration of nature in everything you do. From green pines to adorable pine cones, we love natural!

There are so many possibilities with colors (not all listed here) and winter time makes it that much more fun! Enjoy your holiday season!
