Everyone loves them! We love doing them and we know many of our brides get inspiration from them. This year, we decided to do things a little differently.
Let’s face it, planning a wedding is overwhelming, even for the most organized bride. There are, what seem like, an endless stream of questions and decisions that need to be made and it’s hard to always know the right choice. This year we started our Styled Shoot Series, we broke down a wedding into it’s individual elements and our goal was to be informative; to educate our brides on the different choices they have and how to chose something that will fit with your style.
We have been collaborating with some of DFW’s premier wedding vendors and the results have been amazing. We can’t wait to share them with all of you! Stay tuned for a new installation every week.
This week we were joined by the incredibly talented Jennifer Yarbro and we focused on different styles of bouquets and their counterparts, boutonnières. There are so many different styles of bouquets from traditional to modern, round to organic, its hard to know what the right fit is for your style. Ultimately your bouquet should make you swoon, fit with your design aesthetic and be very “you!”
A Bohemian style bouquet has a more organic shape, like it was just picked out of the garden. The flowers are whimsical and natural, creating a very soft and romantic shape. This bouquet would be for the bride that is not traditional. A bride that has fun with her style and is more eclectic in her design aesthetic. This would be perfect for an outside garden wedding.
The Boutonniere that matches is fun and playful, using non traditional flowers that have texture and personality.
A more casual style bouquet has an organic shape but not as wild as the Bohemian. This bouquet is a more traditional shape but with fun flowers of many different shapes, shades and textures. This bouquet would be for the bride that is laid back and easy going. A bride that doesn’t want to go over the top, but still wants her personality to shine through. This would be perfect for a beach or back yard wedding.
The boutonniere for this groom would also show personality with a bright pop of color and patterned wrap (to match the bride’s, of course!)
Remember traditional doesn’t mean boring! We have taken all the traditional elements and still made this bouquet interesting and beautiful. By using all white flowers and keeping the traditional round shape, this bouquet reads as tailored and traditional but we added a little vintage touch on the wrap to keep it interesting. We love when brides are able to use family heirlooms to make their bouquet even more meaningful. This is perfect for a winter ballroom wedding.
The boutonniere for the traditional groom is conservative and simple. No Muss, No Fuss!
A Colorful bouquet is for the bride that is not afraid to make a statement. The shape can vary depending on your flower choice but don’t be afraid to mix colors and shapes to create a bold bouquet. These bright, vibrant blooms are perfect for an outdoor summer wedding.
The Boutonniere for this bouquet is fun and playful and full of color!
A Romantic bouquet is soft and dreamy with muted colors. It has a natural shape, not forced, with garden style flowers. This is for the bride that loves all the romance that is Pride and Prejudice and is having a spring garden wedding.
The Boutonnière to match is simple and soft, just picked from the garden.
What ever style fits you, don’t forget the Man of the hour!
Stay tuned next week for our 2nd installment: Pew Decor!
We will show you how to make the most of your ceremony decor!
