What style are you?

By: Jessica Robinson

When we meet clients initially, I always ask them how they would describe their style.  Or the style they want to create.  Are you looking for something romantic and elegant or modern and trendy?  Maybe your style is a bit romantic, rustic-chic?  Luckily each of our clients tastes (and venues) are so unique, we have the opportunity to create so many wonderful looks, all their own.
Take this bouquet for example.  It has a wonderful mix of dark purple mini calla lilies, cool water roses, blue veronica, purple sweet peas, mini green hydrangea and touches of lavender button mums.  It has a "just gathered" feel to it and simply wrapped with an organic burlap ribbon.  To me, this bouquet speaks to the style: Rustic and romantic.  During every season, there is a wonderful selection of locally grown flowers that offer that fresh picked garden look.  (just a few: Zinnias, locally grown hydrangea, strawflower, statice, poppies, sweet peas, lisianthus, peonies, veronica, herbs and snowberries)
This hand-tied bouquet of garden roses is simplistic and romantic.  It's the perfect match for an afternoon garden ceremony.  This bouquet also goes well with an elaborate gown.  With gowns that have a tremendous amount of detail, sometimes it's better to keep it simple.  As not to over power the gown and your look.  We added a little extra detail with the stems by tying French-knots around the stems with an ivory satin ribbon.
This bouquet features wonderful 'patience' garden roses, an abundance of white cattelya orchids, white sweet peas and ivory roses.  It's wrapped with a wide ivory satin ribbon and adorned with a broach from Regina B.  It speaks to the romantic and very sophisticated feel of her entire wedding.
How do you visualize your wedding will be?
