A few months ago Forever Moissanite reached out to me to let me know about their Affiliate program. This is where a blogger like me will promote a product in exchange for a commission, if someone makes a purchase from a link on their blog. I took a look at their website, their ring designs, and their reviews and quickly decided that this was a company I could partner with.
Oh my goodness! What can I say about Robyn and Brandon’s wedding we did last Summer! I adore all this color and the wildflower style Robyn chose for their wedding. This might be my favorite set of bridal party flowers we’ve ever done!
Powder Blue Wildflower Wedding Bridal Party
These bouquets and boutonnières were an absolute joy to create! In our floral design meeting, Robyn and I discussed the color pallet and decided what would go best with the powder blue dresses. We knew we wanted to use touches of Delphinium which are those longer light blue flowers. However, even though Robyn loved the idea of COLOR, I knew we would still want to keep it tasteful and resist the urge to just throw all the bright colors into her bouquets. So we decided that the warmer tones of peach, yellow and blush would contrast against the blues while still keeping things sophisticated and wedding appropriate.
When Megan reached out to us about doing her wedding flowers, she said she was looking for a boho style, but definitely wanted to incorporate some feminine color into her wedding. So we decided on some blush, mauve, and plum blooms as a way to soften the look and tie in the Bridesmaid’s dresses and other details.
There’s a trend we’re seeing in the wedding industry of a more elegant, black tie wedding style, created by things like long-stemmed bouquets, floor length gowns and a strategic level of simplicity. Cassidy and Tyler chose this classic and elegant style for their wedding at Howe Farms’ newest venue, The Woodland; an Italian villa inspired venue in Georgetown, Tennessee.
If you have been in the market for a diamond ring lately, you have probably heard the mention of “moissanite rings”. Moissanite rings have become increasingly popular in the past few years. But you may be asking yourself why? What was so wrong with the traditional diamond ring? What is Moissanite? Is it acceptable as an engagement ring or gift? Does it look cheap? Will it last?
Rachel & Cesar’s wedding took place at one of our favorite Tennessee wedding venues, Howe Farms. The property has several different wedding venues on site, including a couple of barns, a couple of more industrial-style spaces, and the Highlands Chapel, the venue Rachel and Cesar chose. This cute white chapel is one of their newer buildings, and this was our first time getting to work their!
For Jessie and Taylor’s wedding, they chose a gorgeous mint color, an urban venue as the setting, and tons of white flowers and fresh greenery! This was one of our first weddings in our HUGE Spring wedding season this year. And, we absolutely loved starting our season out at the Turnbull Building in Chattanooga. This 4-story historic building downtown has tons of urban charm, and we love that the ceremony space is pretty much a blank canvas. So, we often get to create something non-traditional as the ceremony floral installation.
Jessie loved the idea of incorporating tons of wedding greenery into the classic color pallet she chose. The fresh greenery looked awesome with the mint bridesmaid’s dresses and napkins, a boxwood champaign wall, and all of the warm tones of the venue’s wooden & brick interior. We loved how the floating greenery installation turned out for the ceremony. And, the couple decided to flip the 4th floor ceremony into the reception layout during the cocktail hour. So, they even got to repurpose the floating greenery around the cake table. How perfect!
Using eucalyptus greenery in wedding flowers is extremely popular right now. We do a ton of weddings with it each year, and our brides love the muted blue-ish green tones of the greenery. I personally love mixing a few different types of eucalyptus with some more green foliage like ruscus or nagi. But, some brides love just eucalyptus for the greenery in their bouquets and floral arrangements. However, not all eucalyptus is the same. There are several different varieties that we love using for different reasons.
Below, I’ll show you the most common types of eucalyptus, and how they look used in bouquets or other wedding floral elements.
