2013 Dream Weddings Bridal Show... part 1

 This last weekend was the Dream Weddings Bridal show in The Woodlands. We love being a part of this fabulous show and meeting so many new brides. We always set up our booth with LOTS of bouquets in every style imaginable. We have found that this is one of the best ways to help brides decide many things about their wedding flowers. We showcase different sizes, styles, textures, colors and lots and lot of flowers! These two bouquets above are amazing! The one on the left is the quintessential antique vintage bouquet with soft romantic colors and fabulous textures. While the bouquet on the right is a modern cascade/ teardrop with white phaleanopsis orchid blooms as the focal point and a bit of bling to spice things up.
 We love to help our potential brides get a feel for size and shape, so we encourage ALL to hold the bouquets. It's amazing how heavy some can get. Plus you may be surprised at what you instinctively love.
 The bouquet in this picture is perfect for spring. With miniature green hydrangea, pink peonies, yellow parrot tulips and buttery stock, not only was it fragrant but so feminine!
 The two bouquets in this picture are traditional handtieds. The one on the left features lisianthus, lavender roses, purple stock blooms and rolled varigated aspidistra leaves. The bouquet on the right is a fun play on modern broach bouquets with a white hydrangea base.
The bouquet on the left is made in a bouquet holder which enables the designer to get an almost perfectly round shape, it also creates a water source for the flowers all day. With peonies, roses, and hydrangea it is soft, elegant, vintage and oh so pretty! We always like to have a 2 dozen red rose bouquet on hand for brides to see. Plus these red roses were just too pretty to leave at the shop!

stay tuned for part 2...

Plus we had to show off our new flat bed truck! And you know what this means, bigger parties, bigger arrangements and lots more pictures to come! We even had to use it to deliver this 36 rose beauty! These roses were literally 4 feet tall! They were amazing!!!
This is a fun little picture we wanted to share with you too. Most of what we post here showcases the weddings and events that we do, but we are an everyday florist as well and our shop is set up in a traditional European style with walk in coolers filled with buckets of beautiful blooms. So come on by, pick out a few stems and we'll make you a beautiful bouquet to take home!

Wedding Trends 2013

2013 is bringing a whole new set of wedding trends in the flower category. With a softer more ethereal feel, the 2013 colors have also shifted. Softer, muted colors are ruling the scene this year with a focus on anything in the mint family.  
 Bouquet trends: Cascades! A vintage bouquet silhouette will make a big return this year. Cascades are returning as vintage styles have begun to rule the fashion world. They are classic, long, and lusciously full of flowers.

 Decor trends: Garlands! 2013 brides are swooning over the full soft and delicate nature of garlands. They can be used anywhere from the ceremony to the reception, even as a beautiful head table piece. Filled with flowers, ribbons and even lights, garlands will be seen much more this year.

 Flower trend: Peonies! Lush, full, romantic and oh so fragrant, peonies are this years must have bloom. But make sure you are ready to pay for it, they are nothing short of pricey. And if having peonies is super important to you, then make sure you plan your day around when they are in season! But remember there are lots of good substitutions that can give you the look, feel, and fragrancy a peonie offers.
Centerpiece trends: The English Garden! Our brides love the soft romantic feel that these arrangements evoke. With a beautiful mix of textures and colors brides are craving the look of the "freshly picked" arrangement. The are lush, beautiful and always romantic.
