Flowers… we all love them - they evoke a feeling of Love and Romance! We loved picking flowers as children and making bouquets, slipping them behind our ear, adding them to our hairstyles. Even boys loved doing it – picking the flowers and giving them to Mommy or a girl they like. And, those boys are now men and are still sending flowers to the special ladies in their lives… So listen, beautiful brides-to-be, contrary to what you may assume, men love to be asked their input and will really enjoy helping you choose the flowers for your wedding. Try it, you will be surprised by the feedback you get from your honey, especially since men are very visual and can come up with some amazing ideas!
Trending for 2013 are all sorts of gorgeous bouquets for brides and some very simplistic concepts, too! We are thrilled to show you the range of fun, unique, beautiful creations and give you some fresh tips for lovely flower arrangements for your wedding.
Flower curtains are so lovely and romantic and set a tone of fantasy like there are little fairies hiding in the corner to wish the bride and groom good luck. We are in love with flower curtains, look how stunning!
A trend we are seeing for flowers, too, which is truly unique, beautiful and powerful, even, is having a single stem flower in your centerpieces and arrangements. One rose in a vase, one lily, one stem of an orchid floating in water, one flower for each bridesmaid and flowergirl, just one. We’re intrigued!
And, following our commitment to staying as eco-friendly as possible, there are many advantages and disasters you could avoid by buying your wedding flowers from local growers. First of all, you don’t have to worry about all the travel, for example, exotic flowers are enduring to make it for your special day. You’ll be helping the environment with saving on transportation as well as supporting your local flower farms! Different flowers are in bloom during various times of the year, so educate yourself about the local foliage and flowers blooming in your area at the time of your wedding. If, let’s say, you’re getting married in California, be sure to log onto the California Cut Flower Commission website (http://www.ccfc.org/ca-cut-flowers) for a full, thorough list of all flowers and foliage which are in season for your special day. Californian couples having an April wedding can have gorgeous purple calla lilies and know that they are in season, local and celebrating one of the hot colors for flowers this year – purple! Nothing is more breathtaking than a wedding adorned with fresh, vibrant flowers, and you can do this by helping our planet too!
Another huge trend we are seeing which we are so excited about is “wearable flowers,” or literally incorporating a good amount of flowers into the bride, bridesmaids and oooh la la – our little flower girl princesses’ outfit. We mean hats with flowers on them, pins, corsages, flower combs, flower headbands and even flowers in the dresses! We love this concept at Frilly Fairy Tales and will be happy to work with you to customize your little Darlings’ outfits especially for this trend! Wearable flowers are gorgeous and breathtaking and add elements of marvel and fantasy. We’re in love with these bride’s whole look:
Now check out our little angels modeling our gorgeous Frilly Fairy Tales creations with beautiful wearable flowers!
Alright, Frilly Fairy Tale fans, we hope you enjoyed this month’s blog and until next time remember what the gorgeous, infamous writer/activist Emma Goldman once said,
“I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.”
