I had the opportunity of designing the flowers for a beautiful wedding at the Milestone in Krum, Texas. The bride wanted coral, blue, and white lilies. We started with, or course, the coral roses. I am a big fan of Movie Star coral rose. It, in my opinion, is the perfect shade of coral that most brides are using when planning their wedding.
We used coral alstroemeria and hypericum berries as well, and I added in pink spray roses, to help keep the coral shade more pink than orange.
The tricky flower color is always blue. Not many flowers are naturally blue. Fun fact: Hydrangeas are blue if they are grown in acidc soil, as compared to alkaline soil which would produce pink hydrangeas.
In our search for blue flowers we came upon Tweedia! It turned out to be such a fun blue accent flower in these bouquets! It is the perfect light touch!
Here’s a close-up of the different textures in the bouquet and a few shots of the bouquets.
A unique detail in these bouquets was the wrap we used instead of traditional ribbon. I found a rustic twine looking wrap that had wire in it so it stayed in place, which is always a nice plus.
The flower girls carried a nosegay of baby’s breath. It was small, chic and low maintenance, which is perfect for young girls!
The beautiful bride on her wedding!
Wedding flowers don’t make or break any wedding, as the ceremony is first about the marriage and second about the people. However, having a fun and pretty floral accent of a bouquet is just as nice as the icing on the wedding cake!
