“Pick” the perfect flowers! Wedding Bouquet Ideas Part 2

Inspired by yesterday’s post about wedding bouquets? Ready to head to the florist with a list of what you want?

Wait until you see the beautiful wedding bouquet ideas in this post before you head out the door to “pick” your perfect flowers!

Jean M helps you choose the perfect flowers for your wedding bouquet.

  • You can’t go wrong with a red rose wedding bouquet! Add in a few white roses in memory of those who can’t be with you on your wedding day.
  • Go natural by adding berries, leaves and vines to your wedding bouquet.
  • Thinking pink? Choose different flowers in similar shades of pink for the ultimate romantic wedding bouquet!
  • Don’t be afraid to mix textures and styles in your wedding bouquet. Tender pink roses get interesting when you add in pods, leaves and even artichokes!
  • Want a deep, rich look? Add in almost-black zinnias and dark fern heads for drama.
  • Pastels are a classic wedding look – and don’t forget to treat the stem of your bouquet to a satin wrap and some rhinestones!

Enjoy the wedding bouquet inspiration!

“Pick” the perfect flowers! Wedding Bouquet Ideas Part I

Your jewelry, your shoes, your veil…they’re all very important wedding accessories. But don’t forget that your wedding bouquet will no doubt be the most-noticed accessory as you walk down the aisle.

So choose those wedding flowers carefully! The type of flower you select for your bouquet will say a lot about your personality and your wedding style and theme. Think of the different messages sent by a bouquet of sunflowers and a bouquet of red roses. Or how about an all-white bouquet vs. one filled with wildflowers that match your color scheme?

Even if you’re opting for the most traditional of wedding flowers – roses and lilies – the way the flowers are put together will make your bouquet unique and stylish. The addition of ribbon, greenery and accents like rhinestones or pearls will set your bouquet apart.

Check out these beautiful wedding bouquet ideas…

Jean M gives you ideas for unique wedding bouquets.

  • Having a country wedding? Go with a bouquet of zinnias or mums for a sweet, informal look.
  • Rows of flowers in contrasting colors will make your bouquet stand out.
  • White-on-white is a beautiful look for wedding bouquets! Choose different sizes of flowers for interest.
  • A single type of flower massed together, like pink ranunculus, has romantic impact.
  • Traditional white roses can be set off perfectly with lush greenery and even flowering herbs.
  • A variety of unique flowers like peonies, tulips and fern fronds will set your bouquet apart.

Which wedding flowers will you pick? Stop back tomorrow for more inspiration!

I’ve loved black and white weddings for a long time — the formality, the glamour, the classic elegance.

But I’m especially loving the black and white weddings I’ve been seeing lately. They’re so hip and modern! Brides are using bold black and white prints with pops of bright color like red, orange or blue. They’re bringing in ethnic design elements like ikat and tribal patterns. They’re even going old-school with vintage typography elements.

The romance of a pink wedding!

Valentine’s Day is coming up, and I’ve been thinking romantic wedding thoughts – all soft and pink and pretty! Pink remains one of the most popular colors for weddings, whether it’s a Valentine’s Day event or held anytime of the year.

Do you love pink, too? I’m betting you will after you see all the pink inspiration I’ve put together for you!

Ideas for pink Jean M wedding invitations and pink wedding accents.Start it all off with a pink wedding invitation that will get guests in the mood for your romantic celebration. My Sweet Scallops Wedding Invitation with Pocket has a unique square pocket that will make your invitation irresistible. Or you can go ultra-romantic with my Vintage Paisley Wedding Invitation in salmon pink for a sweet vintage look.

Add accents of pink throughout your special day with Pink Rhinestones and Princess Pink Satin Ribbon.

Little touches of shimmer and satin will go along way in creating a wedding look that’s sweet, romantic and unique. Be sure to add ribbon to your bouquets, floral arrangements, candles, decorations…even hang ribbon streamers from the ceiling to create a pretty atmosphere.

I love pink mixed with silver – it’s a fresh and soft look that’s great for weddings anytime of year. Just look at my Silver Shimmer Lidded Favor Boxes accented with Personalized Pink Satin Favor Ribbon.

It’s a small-scale accent that makes a big impact at your reception. And your guests will love it! Then be sure to toast your marriage with Precious Hearts Toasting Flutes with shine and sparkle. They’ll be beautiful keepsakes of your special day.

Add pink into your other wedding-related parties, too! Provide Whimsical Posies Ooh La Color Napkins at your bridal shower and invite guests to celebrate with you before the wedding with my Romantic Look Rehearsal Dinner Invitation in pink and grey.

Don’t think you have to be tied to just one shade of pink. There are so many – from palest blush to the brightest fuchsia. Mix the pink shades in your wedding party attire and in your floral arrangements for an all-out romantic wedding!

Enjoy getting “in the pink” for your wedding!

Beautiful winter wedding ideas from Jean M

Just because Christmas is over doesn’t mean winter weddings are over, too! Winter doesn’t officially end until the middle of March, and that means we have three more months of sparkly, wintery wonderfulness in weddings.

I was playing with ideas for different winter wedding looks using wedding invitations and accessories from MiDesign@Michaels Custom Invites. I added in some decorative items from Michaels stores for fun — and here’s what I came up with! Get inspired and get ready to add unique flair to your own winter celebration.

Add unique shine to your winter wedding with white invitations and accessories that sparkle with silverI love the all-white winter wedding look with touches of metallic silver and rhinestones to mimic the sparkling snow. When you add in lots of candlelight, your entire celebration will shine!

Set the tone with the Silver Lovebirds Wedding Invitation- even the paper shimmers for extra beauty! Then dress up your reception with glittery accents like snowflakes, candles and table linens. Add in Silver Shimmer Lidded Favor Boxes for special treats. And be sure to toast your love with Eternity Knot Toasting Flutes with shiny silver stems.

Add purple or another jewel tone color to your winter wedding for a look that’s elegant and richIf the all-white look isn’t for you, use a silver sparkling backdrop of candles and linens and add in a punch of your favorite color! Jewel tones like deep purple, garnet red and emerald green are gorgeous for winter weddings.

You can bring in your color right away with the announcement of your wedding date by choosing a save the date card accented in purple. The Floral Filigree Photo Save the Date in Raisin does the trick in personal style! Then follow up with a wedding invitation like the Feather Damask Wedding Invitation or the Ornate Crests Wedding Invitation printed in your choice of color. Purple ribbon, satin accessories and favor treats to match are the finishing touches.

Enjoy the winter wedding inspiration!
