It's no secret that I love photographing flowers.
Flowers are gorgeous and can really help your wedding stand out. When it comes to wedding flowers, you kind of have endless options. In speaking to my florsit, Angela, about what flowers to use at my own wedding, she recommended using flowers that were in season to keep the price down (really, she is the best). I wanted to write about that, but when I started researching, I found that The Knot has an amazing list of types of flowers with their season, price range, scent, color, inspiration, literally everything. So here is the link to an awesome guide for wedding flowers.
After giving up on writing about that, I decided to show off some of my favorite bouquets and why they totally stand out!
Alli chose this luxurious posy bouquet for her and her girls. There fun bright colors that look great against her dress and against her maid's dark dresses. I love the loose ribbon that is hanging from each bouquet.
Natalie's round bouquet was perfect for her elegant downtown Kansas City wedding. It matched her pastel color palette and complimented her dress well.
Krista opted for a cascading bouquet. This style of bouquet peaked in the 1980's where bigger was better! I love how the cascade look is making a comeback. The blooms she chose for her bouquet fit her peacock wedding theme. The purples, blues and greens were gorgeous!
Ali chose a gorgeous pastel color palette for her spring wedding. The flowers in her bouquet were light pink and white, which tied into her bridesmaid's necklaces and accessories. I love the greenery she incorporated into the bouquets.
Kendall decided on a classic round all-white bouquet. I love the classic style of bouquets. Especially for all white roses!
Jessica got married on what was maybe the hottest day of the year (and she still looks fab). I am so glad she chose hearty sunflowers for her bridal bouquet. These flowers are used to being in heat, so they lasted all day!
Ashley chose a presentation style bouquet. This style reminds me of pageant winners. They are normally held to one side, just like Ash is doing while exiting her ceremony with her hubby.
The Big Fake Wedding bouquets were KILLER! A few years ago, when the styled bridal show was called The NotWedding, I was invited to be a featured vendor. It was basically a big styled shoot, with a real couple. All of the guests were newly-engaged ladies who wanted to see what we could create. It is an awesome alternative to a traditional bridal show.
Those peonies were seriously out of this world huge, and the colors were so bright and cheerful. I love the loose stems and ribbon tying the flowers together.
Flowers are so much fun! I loved my bouquet so much, it may or may not be the wallpaper for my laptop... ;)
