Hot Colors for Summer

As I have been meeting with Brides over the last few months Purple, Aubergine or Plum has been a very popular color! Many brides have used it monochromatically with other shades like lavender and white. Some brides have kept it simple using Ivory to accent the deep purple, but the most popular color scheme has paired the purple with blue, chartreuse green and pops of fuchsia. This has created the perfect palette to add in peacock feathers. They encompass all of those colors and add wonderful texture. The picture below is a bouquet I created that brings this idea to life!

A Twist on Bridal Bouquet Wraps

There are many fun and creative ways to dress up the handle of a bridal bouquet. This is a fun way to add bling or accent color that you might not be using in the flowers.

  • A good way to use up fabric and make sure the wrap matches exactly is to use leftover fabric from your dress or your bridesmaids’ dresses.
  • Wrap the bouqet in fun colored and textured wire to add a modern accent.
  • Use pearl pins up the handle so the bouquet looks like the back of your dress, all pinned up!

  • Colored rhinestones in a pattern or just like the pearls can add sparkle and shine. In the above picture the bouquet wrap has crystal pins up the handle to match the pins in the mini gerbera daisies.

  • This Bride used her Grandmother’s broach on her bouquet as her something old. This is another great way to add a little bling to your bouquet.

 

  • Lace up your bouquet like a ballet slipper or corset in a contrasting ribbon to add fun detail and visual interest!

Creative Centerpiece Ideas

There are many creative and unique ways to spice up a table setting and add color. 

  • Create visual interest by using different heights, some short and squatty and some tall and grand.
  •  Create a planter: Use succulents such as chicks and hens and cactus planted in a simple planter that matches your wedding. They are fun and interesting and easy to keep alive after the wedding. They are great also to give away to special guests at the end of the wedding.
  •  Another way of creating visual interest is to create 3 different styles of centerpieces. This makes it fun for guests to go around and look at each centerpiece.
  • Use fruit paired with flowers. Think one large cube vase filled with flowers to match your wedding. Add two other small cubes and make a grouping. Fill these with fruit that match your wedding. This is a fun way to add color and save money.

  • The above picture features a submerged dahia with a floating candle on top. This was a fun way to bring the sea to life in a centerpiece. The dahlia looks like an anemone would under water. The candle is a fun way to add ambiance to the centerpiece. There are many other flowers that work well to submerge under water to create a similar but different look.

 

 

  • The above pictures are utilizing submersible LED lights. These are great to add some light to an evening wedding. They are also an option when candles are not allowed. The top picture is a purple LED light and the bottom is a clear LED light. It is a fun way to add color and interest to your centerpieces. The light reflects in the water to brighten the room.

  • The above picture features a tall cylinder vase with Crystal-soil beads layered in clear and purple. This is another way to add color and reflect light. These are a fun medium to work with and can be used in any size or shape of vase. They come in a variety of colors including: clear, white, bloom, emerald, bright green, yellow, orange, purple, red, and ruby.
