Flowers Fit For The Gown
Today’s wedding flower décor inspiration is directly influenced by fashion. What’s the first purchase a bride usually makes? Her wedding gown of course! The smallest detail on a gown can be the beginning of an inspiration for your wedding florals and décor. From a colored satin sash, unique embroidery, a brooch, lace, feathers and rhinestones let these details guide your imagination. Even a gown without any embellishments can evoke a certain minimalist/modern design style.
Don’t let your attendants’ dresses directly influence a matching color theme. For instance if your bridesmaids’ dresses are a red shade consider a green complement such as a bouquet of green cymbidium orchids, green roses, berries and brown monkey’s tail or bouquets of plum dahlias, green and fuchsia orchids.
A bridal gown with a ruffled flounce detail calls for equally ruffled shaped blooms such as catteleya orchids which could carry over into an entire orchid theme for your wedding. Soft peonies, when in season, in white or pink tones would work beautifully for the same ruffle details.
Create A Statement With Repeat Design Elements
Consider accents that come from nature like feathers to complement your florals. Wearing feather accents in your hair? Carry that over into your bouquet as a collar to surround simple white dahlias or white freesia. Peacock feathers are a dramatic choice along with cinnabar colored roses if your bridesmaids’ dresses are espresso, teal or bronze tones.
