Can you spot the silk flowers in these wedding bouquets?

Lots of weddings this past weekend!  Our three featured brides chose very different looks for their bouquets.  Two of the bouquets had a few silk flowers added to the fresh.  This is a great way to add the look of flowers that may be out of season, or beyond the bride’s budget.

Our first bouquet features orange alstromeria, ivory roses, tinted lavender ranunculus, blue eryngium, white stephanotis and white wax flower:

Our next bouquet is in a teardrop style, and contains pink and white alstromeria, pink lisianthus, white freesia, ivory spray roses and seeded eucalyptus:

Our third bride chose beautiful cherry brandy roses, orange mini calla lilies, magenta cockscomb, orange Asiatic lilies and purple peonies for her bouquet.

Did you spot the silk flowers?  The white stephanotis in the first bouquet, and the purple peonies in the third bouquet are silk.

Moving to one of the ceremony sites, the pews at St. Maurice Church were decorated with hydrangea and simple bows made of wired double-satin ribbon.
