Isn't late September such a nice time to have a wedding? The weather has been a bit wicked this year being a bit more rainy and muggy than usual but we sure have loved the color combinations from some this months weddings. Orange has been popular all year going from burnt to corals (with pink undertones) right on into light, soft peaches. Take this bouquet above. Peach and orange roses, spray roses and berries accented with spectacular dahlias were the perfect color combination for a late summer, early fall bouquet. This bouquet was held by the brides maids and the one below was held by the bride.
The bride carried peach roses, orange spray roses, peach mini callas, creamy white roses and dahlias accented with peach berries.
This bouquet was created for Amy's brides maids. An exact copy (but a bit smaller) of a bouquet we created for bride Keally last year (also featured in Contemporary Bride - NJ) this lovely combination of peach, pink, white and yellow was made using gerbers, regular pom pon daisies, roses, craspedia and light touches of lime green buplurium. This bouquet style once again dominated the Internet getting us many likes on facebook and even winning a weekly photo award on Flower Shop Networks Facebook Page. Amy's bouquet was a simple, classic white and must have looked wonderful along with these pretty bouquets.
The above bouquet was created for bride Adele and used brown/orange cymbidium orchids, protea, mini callas, orange roses, berzillia berries, mokara orchids and uhula fiddle ferns. A light touch of foliage finished off the bouquet and gave structure to this amazing floral combination.
This weekend marks October 1st and many of our brides have continued to choose shades of orange along with rich reds and burgundies so we'll be sure to keep you updated with the latest trends.
