Just peachy!

Right now in Pennsylvania the peaches are in season. This wedding palette of peach colored blooms is a stunning choice for late July.

BW-182 Bride's bouquet

The bride’s hand-tied bouquet included peach Juliet garden roses, peach dahlias, pink carnations, white ranunculus, peach hypericum, pink carnations and silver dollar eucalyptus. The bride wanted to incorporate white anemones into the bouquet, so we used silk flowers for the best show and value.

Centerpieces for the reception followed the same color theme with white and light peach hydrangea, peach spray roses, peach hypericum, pink carnations and silver dollar eucalyptus.

Wedding reception centerpieces…

Three of our brides this week chose low centerpieces of roses and hydrangeas for their reception tables. Yet even using similar flowers, each wedding is a unique vision. When it comes to flower arrangements, a change in color can mean a major change in the final result!

Our first centerpiece features a stunning color palette of purple hydrangea, ivory roses and green hypericum in a 6″ bubble bowl. In order to keep the price within budget, these hydrangea are actually blue hydrangea tinted with purple floral dye. Blue hydrangea are less expensive than the natural purple ones, and we think the paint actually gives the flowers a richer depth of color.

This centerpiece also uses tinted flowers. Here green tinted hydrangea are combined with natural white hydrangea. Spray roses and babies’ breath complete the arrangement, all in a 5″ glass cube.

Our third centerpiece also uses hydrangea and roses. Pure white hydrangea are paired with vibrant Cherry Brandy roses and Stargazer lilies. All are arranged in a 6″ bubble bowl.

Beautiful!

Wedding floral trends for 2013

Our wedding specialist, Sherry Holeczy, writes:

Weddings for spring and summer 2013 will have a fresh feel, and what’s more fresh than flowers?  There are a few themes trending that allow for flowers to play a major role in the ambiance of your wedding.

One of my favorite trends this year is the vintage, romantic feel that isn’t too fussy.  This is the perfect theme for a beautiful bouquet!  Imagine walking through a well-groomed garden of a great estate and gathering flowers as you stroll along.  Wedding bouquets for this theme should evoke that feeling, with natural, easy blooms of hydrangea, garden roses, spray roses and maybe a few peonies (if you’re lucky enough to get the timing just right.)  There may be some ivy creating a slight cascade.  To keep with the easy feeling, don’t be too concerned about the blooms matching perfectly with the dresses.  Pastels are in for 2013 weddings, and there are many shades of flowers that will complement a mint green or pale pink bridesmaid dress beautifully.  We are even seeing pastel floral patterned dresses!

A closely related theme is inspired by the 1920’s (think Downton Abbey.)  This has a similar feel, but with a little more glamour and elegance.  This bouquet may be large and cascading with a more “put together” look.  Bridesmaids may carry small, simple nosegays using only one type of flower.  Carnations were a popular flower in the 1920’s, and are a great option to include in any bouquet.

Another trend is graphic-printed bridesmaid dresses.  Think stripes, chevrons and polka dots, just to name a few!  These provide the perfect backdrop for bright, monochromatic bouquets.  Create a fun summer look by choosing a bright bouquet of all hot pink or orange flowers, against a navy and white striped dress.
