When Heather, this lovely bride-to-be, first walked into our shop, I knew that very good things could come from our collaboration. Not only is she totally in love (romance radiates from her like moonbeams), but she has great taste for classic beauty. The spring season all but dictated that hydrangeas, peonies and roses would form her bouquet, and she chose a simple, elegant garden style with stems clustered together.
Photographed by Reign 7 Studios, Heather and her wedding party show off how worthy simple designs can be. Bouquets don’t need to be fussy…and when they are, they detract from the overall look and feel of the wedding.
Like this bouquet style, but can’t quite put your finger on why? Here we break down the elements of this arrangement:
1. The Rule of Threes: Three contrasting flower types tend to complement each other when designed together. Peonies, roses and hydrangeas all look drastically different from one another, and are different sizes. Clustered in a group, you can see their individual characteristics.
2. Seasonality is Key: Please, no mums in spring, and no hydrangeas in November. We can order them for you, but seasonally-appropriate flowers look their best at the time of year they are naturally harvested.
3. Kick it up with Green: All-white bouquets can be gorgeous, but the pop of pale lime green from the hydrangeas adds interest and delights the eye. We now carry green hydrangeas in our shop throughout spring and summer!
