Hey Friends! I'm so excited to announce part 1 of my bridal tip series! Each week I will have guest bloggers (from florists like Michelle, to filmmakers, to cake makers, and more) come onto the blog and give tips for brides! I'm so excited to have my sweet friend Michelle from One Sweet Day in May on the blog today!
As we move forward into Fall I’m seeing more and more of my brides step outside of the box especially floral wise and I have to say, I’m loving it. Fall weddings are probably my favorite. No, they aren’t peonies, but with ideas like the ones I’m about to show you, who needs them?!
Greenery and Natural Elements
Every bride this year especially my Fall girls, are wanting to bring the outside in with floral walls, arbors, and garlands in place of traditional pieces to create a very lush looking atmosphere. Bouquet wise, we’re still seeing more whimsical and off balance bouquets adorned with vines, berries, and fruits. See what I mean about outside the box?
Firstly, I will say that gold is still the leader of the pack. There’s a reason why my gold floral containers are used for almost every wedding booked. However, I’m seeing more and more copper pop up and not just with florals. Think Moscow Mules served as a pre wedding drink. Love! Copper is so versatile. It can be used as foil on your invitations, on your reception tables in the form of chargers, or copper floral containers for your flowers. It can be used for unlimited wedding looks from Rustic to Bohemian.
Farm tables are everywhere so much so that I didn’t need to include them in this list because everyone already knows. And since farm tables or long tables are where it’s at, plantar boxes are the perfect compliment. Fill them with lush blooms and greenery spilling out. Perfect! They are so chic and make for one pulled together and streamlined event space.
Rich Tones Mixed With Soft Hues
Hooray! I have a weakness for soft colors. Blushes, creams, soft grays. I’m all about that and so are a lot of brides. I’m seeing brides who are longing for those pastels but getting married in the Fall mix them with rich colors like deep wine or plum. The result is pure gorgeousness. My favorite combo at the moment, Cranberry and blush. You still get that girly-ness, but you’re also pulling in seasonally relevant colors.
A Huge trend this year and honestly one of my favorites is long ribbons.They add such personality to a bouquet and can really add some drama to your overall bridal look. Some brides are opting for layers of the same ribbon while others are wanting complimentary colors in different lengths and textures.
Thank you Michelle from One Sweet Day in May for being a guest blogger today!
