With love in the air this month… we wanted to share a romantically inspired dream wedding bouquet that embodies passion and whose different textures keep your eye moving constantly throughout the bunch!
BOUQUET // This Bouquet is rich in textures and romantic tones. Burgundy is a perfect color for winter and fall weddings or for a romantic theme anytime of the year. The mix of the traditional and modern elements of this bouquet creates a romantic feel that photograph amazing! This bouquet as a whole is available fall and winter. Anemones are available spring, winter and fall; dahlias are in peak season summer to winter; cymbidium orchids are available year round and come in two sizes. Shown in this bouquet are the full size cymbidium orchids.
BLUEPRINT // 10 stems of White Anemones with black centers // 5 stems of Burgundy Anemones // 2 Stems of Burgundy Cymbidium Orchids (minimum of 18 blooms) // 6 stems of Galax leaves // 1 bouquet holder // Small handful of Preserved Lichen // Ribbon + floral glue
CARE // Cymbidium Orchids are very hardy flowers, however Dahlias and Anemones do need a water source therefor it is best to use a bridal bouquet holder for this design. Using a bouquet holder also makes it easier to use the cymbidium orchids. Cover the base of the bouquet holder prior to designing the bouquet. After finishing the design glue in touches of Preserved Lichen to cover any foam or holds in the bouquet.
BOUTONNIERES // Cymbidium orchids are the best option for a coordinating boutonniere. Above is a traditional boutonniere or a modern boutonniere that will match the bouquet beautifully.
