You can add a touch of elegance with crystal vases for your reception flowers paired with a patterned runner or table cloth to create a bold, yet elegant statement for your reception decor. 

A trend that is easy to replicate, especially for rustic weddings, is to use a cut of wood from a tree trunk along with wine bottles or simple glass vases with smaller bunches of flowers to give the illusion of larger arrangements.

Mason jars create a great option for vases, and this one is wrapped in lace to give an added touch of elegance. Combined with a bunch of colorful flowers that complement your wedding theme, you'll be sure to love the beautiful outcome for your wedding reception flower arrangements.

Bold, beautiful flowers combined with natural greenery provide a great contrast to lighter color table cloths to create a beautiful wedding reception that portrays your wedding colors and theme. Plus, add personal DIY touches with small chalkboard, signs, etc. for table numbers. 

As we mentioned, your wedding reception flowers don't have to too large to provide a big impact to the decor. We love working with our brides to create the perfect arrangements for your big day that fit your theme and your budget. Contact us today as we'd love to work with you!

 

 

 

Flowers for Him: Wedding Boutonniere Styles for the Groom

While the focus of wedding day flowers might be on the bridal bouquets and centerpieces, you can't overlook flowers for the man standing beside you! So, we've pulled together some wedding boutonnière styles for the groom and his groomsmen that are sure to compliment your bridal bouquet and the groom's unique style as well. 

A Classic Statement

There is nothing more swoon-worthy than a man in a classic black tux with a classic white boutonniere. For classic weddings or just a classic touch, you can never go wrong with this favorite.

A Coordinated Compliment

Boutonnieres can also serve as a great color coordination piece for your groom and his wedding day attire. In the photo above, the bout does a great job of coordinating with the tie and tying the look together.

In other instances, you can use boutonnieres to bring in a color on the groom's tux or suit that isn't present, such as an accent color. This is especially useful if your groom isn't all that into more feminine colors such as pink or purple. However, he can surely live with a small pink boutonniere on his lapel!

Boutonnieres are a great place to try something a little different and out of the box to carry through your wedding theme. We just love the idea of using succulents to make a bold, monochromatic statement. Also, there is something to be said for the simplistic beauty of lavender. 

Mismatched Magic

Who says that all of the boutonnieres need to match? Try something a bit different and go all out with mismatched bouts for the guys in your wedding party. You can do something simple and make the grooms bout stand out from the groomsmen, or you can try a completely different look for each guy. 

As you can see, the possibilities are endless to create a boutonniere to fit the style of your wedding while also complimenting the taste of your groom. For more inspiration, check out our "Bouts for the Guys" board on Pinterest.

Rustic Wedding Flower Trend: Baby's Breath

What used to be known as a flower that accompanies other flowers in arrangements, baby's breath is starting to stand on its own to add an affordable option for rustic weddings. Baby's breath can be used in ceremony decor to decorate the aisle, adorn reception tables in centerpieces and even be the star of bridesmaids bouquets. Take a look at few of our favorite wedding uses of baby's breath from Pinterest - follow us on Pinterest for lots of floral inspiration!

Something about these simple arrangements for ceremony aisle decor just screams rustic simplicity, while adding a beautiful touch of bridal white. Goregeous! 

What's not to love about these beautiful baby's breath bridesmaids bouquets? They are perfect for a rustic, outdoor barn wedding to add flowers without breaking the budget.

Sometimes simple is best, especially when it comes to boutonnieres for the groomsmen. The baby's breath bout shown here pairs perfectly with a monogrammed pocket square.

Baby's breath pairs perfectly with burlap, as well as these gorgeous reclaimed wood boxes. 

We love working with baby's breath for our brides and would be happy to discuss fresh and unique uses. Contact us today to get started!
