A meeting today with bride Adele got me to thinking about this blog topic. Working with brides to create floral bouquets that they absolutely love has as much to do with the "texture" the flower combinations create as the "color" theme of the flowers. For example, these bouquets were mostly shades of orange but had these been made using a single flower such as roses or even the dahlias, they certainly would have looked completely different.
A bride that likes "texture" will usually love bouquets that have flowers in different shapes and sizes and even though they might be monochromatic, mostly one color like these, the flowers themselves might have slightly different shading with in the same flowers. These bouquets used both roses and tulips that showed mostly as orange but hints and lines of yellow. Take that color away and again, the look would be completely different.
Anyone that has ever had a wedding consultation with me knows I generally attack the flowers from those two angles - what color or colors do we wish them to be and do we want them to have lots of texture or not. Once we figure out those two elements, I think brides are surprised at how quickly the bouquet vision seems to come together and the wedding flower look has been born! It's as easy as that!
