WEDDING FLOWERS {Soft & Romantic}

Yes, it’s true.  Certain flowers only mesh well with certain types of event designs.  Not all florists understand that or can relay that information to a bride who is dead set on a specific type of flower (mine were anemones–too expensive/hard to get).  I’m here to burst your bubble…your event will look much more pulled together if the flowers match the theme!!  For the next 5 or so weeks, I plan to post every Friday about flowers…let’s call it Floral Friday for the sake of alliteration and my typically ridiculous blog post naming strategies…

Now, don’t get me wrong.  I am NOT a flower expert, however, I can absolutely tell you what shapes, colors, and types will match with your event style….aaand I can make a pretty dang good bouquet for anyone wanting a cheap florist ;)

For any rustic or vintage styled event, you will absolutely want a soft and romantic looking bouquet with a subdued color scheme (no pointy petals, harsh shapes, or saturated colors!!)…here are some great flowers and examples of gorgeous bouquets!!
