Fall weddings are coming quickly around the corner. If you are planning one, you are gathering your unique ideas to host a cozy detailed wedding and reception that will leave your guests in awe. This fall, strive for the coziness of fire and candlelight, cream and natural colors, and basins filled with your favorite drinks to create your dream wedding.

During fall, season leaves are starting to change into their vibrant last color before winter and the air is left with a cooling breeze. It’s the perfect season to show off our perfect natural landscape, which can play beautifully into weddings.

For outdoor weddings:

  • Use what the world has given us. Use the trees for backgrounds, old bridges as your aisle or even your own land with an ivy over grown arbor.
  • Play off the natural colors with neutral colors that only highlight the outdoor surroundings.
  • Use barrels down the aisle filled with your favorite flower to add a dramatic/rustic look to your wedding.
  • Continue the reception outside; the guests will not want to go indoors trust me, unless the weather doesn't want to corporate.
  • If it’s chillier than normal, offer blankets, shawls or fire pits for the ceremony and reception.

For indoor weddings:

First off, I am in the same boat with you girls. I am having an indoor wedding in the winter (different season I know), but who says you can’t recreate the outdoors inside? So, my first pointer is to…

  • Recreate the outdoors with trees, plants, fall leaves, and more.
  • Make chandeliers out of twigs, leaves and candles (battery operated for safety).
  • Use gingham on anything you can find. Ok, maybe a little rash, but gingham in your wedding colors is a perfect fall look.
  • Look for venues that have a cozy feel, that being a fire place, a place for a fire pit or a smaller vintage room.

Spring is almost here and it's time to start getting outdoors. Spring is also the ideal time for outdoor weddings. So, if you plan on having an outdoor wedding, let us provide some inspiration for you. Your outdoor venue maybe at the beach, by a barn, by the lake or even in your very own backyard. Whatever it is, it's sure to be beautiful.

Trying to narrow down colors for your upcoming summer wedding? Feel like you have seen everything and want something new and fashionable without being impossible to match? Consider Radiant Orchid! Here's why:

Pantone has been an issuer of professional color standards for the design industry for over 50 years. Each year they use their expert color-sampling to examine the world of design and fashion and make a key prediction of the hottest color trends. The 2014 color of the year has been announced as Radiant Orchid.

This purple variant is in-between the calm stability of blue and the passionate energy of red. Offering a rich harmony of fuchsia and purple with undertones of pink, there are so many reasons to love this color.

Wedding Flowers

Much like blue, this purple color is somewhat rare in nature so it has long been associated with sacred meanings and also royalty. What could be a better symbolic color for your wedding? The vows you will be sharing with your partner are the most sacred of your commitment to each other. And the tradition of having a wedding party with bridemaids and groomsmen has royal blood as well.

Luckily modern growers know the popularity of this color and while it is more rare than say, red, you can certainly find plenty of different flower varieties for the summer season in this popular shade. Lavender, orchids, lilacs, hydrangeas and stock beautifully exhibit this color and provide delicate and lush options for your ceremony, reception and bridal party flowers.

Be Stylish With Any Style

Whether you long for classic looks or modern flair, poetic naturals or eclectic pairings, Radiant Orchid can be incorporated into any style and look great. Long associated with imagination and creativity, this enchanting color will be a joy to work with and will inspire you and your guests. Florists, who have their eye on trends year-around, will already have great ideas to utilize this color.

Summer wedding trends normally call for brash and bright colors to compete with the heat. With Radiant Orchid you have the option to play it more subtle and cool which will be refreshing to your eyes. But if bright is your middle name, hot variations that pull the warmer pink tones from this color are really popular as well.

Feminine and graceful, Radiant Orchid is what you might call a "grown-up" pink so you can feel confident about choosing it and not having regrets down the road. As this color will be seen more and more throughout the year, you'll have an easy time finding accessories and decor to match.

Perfect Match, Every Time!

Want to make sure everyone – your bridesmaids, your florist, your baker – is one the same page? You don't want your maid of honor in bright magenta and the place cards Continue reading "Radiant Orchid – Best Color For Your Summer Wedding!" »

Not big on color or not even sure what colors you would want for your wedding? Why not go with a neutral color? That way, any color can really be paired with it. Going with a tan, nude, champagne or ivory also sets a beautiful tone to your wedding. Whether it be shabby chic or romanticism, these colors can help you achieve that.

There are so many options when it comes to planning your wedding bouquet that it can all seem a little overwhelming. But, by sitting down and thinking about what you like before filling your head with tons of options, you'll be able to tackle the decision much easier! Here are a few ideas on trend for 2014 for making sure you fall in love with your bouquet.

Shabby Chic – This is for the ultimate romantics. Very delicate, feminine flowers like calla lillies are charming and will make you feel like the queen of the day. Color choice is important since you don't want any overwhelming colors if you're going along with this theme. Creams, light pinks, and light greens would work well.

Bling – Anything from pearls to crystals to rhinestones, are classy ways to give a bouquet some flair and elegance. It can be over-the-top or just a hint of sparkle, whichever goes with your theme and your personality.  One rule to go by: if your dress has a lot of bling make sure your bouquet is toned down at least a little bit. The bouquet is important, but the dress should stand out more.

Be Open to Variety – Rather than getting fixated on one type of flower, incorporating a variety of different ones displays your personality and doesn't limit you to the one perfect choice of flower. It's easy to think that you've got to have just the right flower type for your bouquet, but let go a little bit and use many of your favorites together. You'll be glad you did. When it comes to flower choice, find something with significance to help you make the decision like your or your fiance's birth month flower, or blooms from the first set of flowers your fiance gave you.

Get Sentimental – Another decision you'll be happy with is the decision to pack your big day with objects and memories close to your heart. With your bouquet, you have the ability to add things into it that mean a lot to you and will comfort you as you walk down the aisle. Whether the stems are wrapped with a special material from your grandmother or a locket with a picture of someone you love inside, you will like being able to rekindle those memories each time you tell someone your bouquet story.

Any wedding bouquet trends you see that will fit into your wedding? There are many options and all are simply breathtaking.
