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!

Happy Wedding: Melody + Brandon

Melody and Brandon said their vows at the rustic and charming Orange County Mining Company last year. Our beautiful bride sent photos from their wedding day to share with us so we knew we had to share with you all. We loved their colors of blue and orange!

Congratulations Melody & Brandon!

Happy Wedding: Lisa + Justin

Warm sand, seaside view, and gorgeous florals – that’s how Lisa and Justin had their wedding last August. They met in college and have been inseparable since. He proposed on a hot air balloon ride with champagne and breakfast and then they had their wedding at Hotel Laguna. It was an intimate wedding on the beach complete with florals by yours truly, Petals By Xavi. Lisa wanted her flowers to be mostly white with pops of blue and since it was a beach themed we knew we had to incorporate that into her bouquet. Take a look at the beautiful bride and what she sent us in our inbox last week.

Thank you for letting us be apart of your special day. We here at Petals by Xavi wish you two all the best!
