Spring Wedding Trends

Gone are the days of tightly compacted flower bouquets for the bride and her maids. Today's couples are looking for organic, messy bouquets and we are happy to comply.  Soft blushes such as light beige, pale pink and very soft peaches seem to be what most bride's are asking for. I admit that I might miss the vibrant colors of Spring Weddings past but blush and ivory tones are timeless, thus they never go out of style.  Cut succulents and garden variety flowers in bouquets look formal but unplanned. You can almost imagine a designer walking around a garden clippers in hand cutting gorgeous flowers and arranging them into these stunning bouquets .  When working with your florist it's important to give them a creative freedom to look for the most gorgeous flowers available in your colors and season.

Orange? Yes!

This bouquet, created for our bride Alycia, has been causing quite a stir on Facebook and Flickr.com showing me that Orange is a hot color for just about any season. Customers phoning in to request flower arrangements for get wells and birthday has shown a real preference for shades of orange, lime green and even yellow. Sunny colors, the perfect introduction into Summer!

Tiny Nosegays

Tiny Nosegays , originally uploaded by Georgianne at Monday Morning Flowers . Can't decide if you want mom to wear flowers at your wedding? How about considering a small hand tied bouquet for her instead of a corsage? These little nosegays were easy to carry, looked nice in photos and held up nicely all day long. Roses are a wonderful choice and by adding interesting foliage and/or ribbon, they go from ordinary to something special. Going to prom soon? Why not ask you date for a hand tied bouquet instead of a wrist corsage? They look wonderful in pictures and allow your florist to be creative to match your gown colors. Stand out and do something a bit different. I'll bet everyone will notice!

How to Carry a Bridal Bouquet. It's not so hard....

People often ask me what is the right way to hold a bridal bouquet. I know some ladies think it's going to be hard but truthfully, even a cascade is very easy to carry. As in the example to the right, that's me holding a very sweet tear drop shaped bouquet (compliments of our bride Coleen). As you can see, I'm able to hold the bouquet with one hand and it's not uncomfortable for me in anyway. The key to holding a cascade is to drop it down to the waist  level. I've seen many pictures of girls holding their bouquets too high, which is a very uncomfortable way to hold these. Second, holding it too high, especially in the case of the bride, blocks all the beautiful detail of their dresses. Remember, when you are walking down the aisle you want to appear relaxed and natural! Another issue I've seen is to point the bottom of the bouquet outwards. Make sure that the bouquets sits nice and flush against your body. This will give you the best possible view in the p
