... and she called him wiiiiiild flower. Or was it fire? I know, I know, I always bring it back to horses.
Sorry, I misplaced my filter for a moment. :)
The Wild Flower Bouquet. Innocent and sweet and without pretension, a humble beauty. The wildflower bouquet is the supporting actor, proudly sitting second to the natural beauty of the bride.
Imagery of a barefoot bride running through a meadow, a bright smile, shoes in hand picking flowers along the way to the alter. To me, THIS is the wildflower bride.
Another perfect example - Meghan Markle. If you watched the royal wedding and paid attention to her flower selections, she chose wildflowers. Forget-me-nots (Princess Diana's favorite flower), sweet peas, lilies, jasmine and a sprig of myrtle were some of the ingredients used in Kate's bouquet. All with special meaning, and picked by Prince Harry.
We can't provide Prince Harry to pick your flowers, but perhaps your husband-to-be. Haven't done this before, but what a great concept! This could be an option with any bouquet style you choose. When your wedding flowers are designed by a Local Farmer/Florist, the sky is the limit. Let us think outside the box for your special day!
Now that we've covered a few bouquet styles for 2018, we will move on to colors! Next post, will be Spring Colors 2019.
Peace, Love and Flowers, Y'all.
The Romantic-at-heart will fall head over heels for the classic fairytale bouquet. The round bouquet is a popular shape for the romantic style bouquet. Typically single colored with lace-like filler and pearl button embellished silk ribbon treatment on the stems.
Most often in shades of white with only a touch of accent color, if at all.
For the fashion minded, the Romantic Bouquet is as timeless as the little black dress.
For an elegant and feminine look and feel, the Romantic Wedding Bouquet is for you. Browse my Pinterest board and get inspired. The single best way to communicate to me your bouquet style, is by sending me Pinterest photos that you adore.

If your style is Eclectic there's no explanation needed, you know what you want and aren't afraid to go outside the norm. Mixing of styles, a little Boho, a lot of color and a mixture of sizes. For example, you might want bright orange dinner plate dahlias, with woodland style greenery, spray roses and succulents.
Why not even take a walk on the wild side and dare I say, throw all the color 'trends' out as well. If the flowers are blooming in your favorite colors, then they are 'in season.' This, is one confident bride. It's your day, your flowers should define YOU.

Peach, Love and Flowers, Y'all.
One of the first questions we ask our brides-to-be, is which floral design appeals to you most. Today, let's talk Boho Woodland Style. A Woodland Boho style wedding has a distinct romantic feel inspired by the outdoors. Long soft flowing hair, often braided, floral crowns and bouquets of flowers with an abundance of natural greenery work well with this style.
The bouquet appears as if you strolled through the enchanted forest hand picking the flowers and leaves. Yet, there is much involved in making the bouquet so perfectly imperfect.
We've created a Pinterest Board to further introduce you to the Woodland Wedding appeal. I'd recommend pinning our pics and starting your own board so your are offered more suggestions to browse and add to your board. Sending us your pinned photos helps us to further understand what your style preference really is.
In addition to designing the wedding flowers, we have been considering offering up our farm as a venue for Woodland Weddings in the future. With the abundance of oak trees, pasture and beautiful barn it really would be perfect. We will be sure to make a big announcement about it should we move in that direction.
Next post we will discuss, Eclectic Style!
Peace, love and flowers, Y'all.
Farmer, florist, lady with the feed bucket. Horses and flowers make my heart go pitter-patter. Or sometimes clippity-clop.
