3 Things To Keep In Mind For Your Blooms

Work with proportions: Your bridal bouquet is the most photographed accessory. It is so important to remember that your bouquet and you should work well together! We sometime forget about proportions. If you’re a petite woman, let your florist know that you would prefer a more compact, rounded floral design so it doesn’t overpower your frame.  And if you’re a taller bride, try the cascading trend or ask for longer stems.

Learn your seasons: Not all flowers are available year round for your wedding date. Use in-season blooms and you’ll get the freshest flowers. But if you must, learn your look-a-likes. Find substitutes to achieve the same style. For example, garden roses often stand in for peonies, and hydrangeas and sweet peas. Ask for florist, trust your florist.

Make them personal: Infuse your bouquet with a wrap such as your grandmother’s handkerchief or attached a photo locket of late loved ones. The touch of sentiment goes a long way to making it even more memorable. Also it can serve as your something borrowed!

Your Cake Needs Flour & Flowers

While the main ingredients of any cake are eggs, sugar, butter, and flour – we would like to add one more – flowers! The trend is not new but we still thought it would be nice to showcase some of our favorites made by yours truly. Adding flowers to your cake is a versatile statement that can fit and complement the ambiance of any wedding. With the rounds of champagne glass clinking and toasting, the cutting of your cake will surely be a highlight to your reception.

There is such a large selection of combinations to choose from (and this is on top of cake tasting). But remember when choosing flowers for your cake to make sure they are edible and safe. Which one did you like? And how did you incorporate flowers into your wedding cake? Let us know in the comments!
