Don’t you just love seeing a bouquet full of gorgeous blooms, mixed textures and amazing accent colours? I love seeing different bouquets throughout the year… anemones in spring, peonies in summer, hydrangeas a little later in the year, and roses all year round. Laura’s bouquet was a fabulous talking point and sets the colour and style for a gorgeous wedding full of feminine colours – and not just pink! Here’s how you can copy her look for your own wedding day:
1. Mix and match your flowers
Laura and Simon’s wedding was in February, so her favourite flowers (peonies) were out of season. Instead your florist might use a combination of roses, grape hyacinths, ranunculus, pink tulips and foliage. Don’t be afraid to ask about flowers which are in season – you’ll be surprised how much choice is available all year round, and how wonderfully creative florists can be! Add a brooch and silk ribbon to your bouquet and buttonholes for an added feminine touch.
2. Bridal accents and bridesmaid style
Add colour to your bridal look with fabulous shoes and gorgeous bridesmaid gowns to complement accents in your bouquet. I love Laura’s lace dress, which works beautifully with that bouquet. Take a tip from the lovely lady and wear a few roses in your hair too! Laura’s bridesmaids wore long lilac dresses from Coast and had smaller versions of Laura’s bouquet to carry.
3. Add a little DIY and some classic touches to continue the theme!
Tissue pom poms are tons of fun to make and can create a wonderful splash of colour in a barn or village hall. Mix the colours to complement your bouquet and theme. Use colourful containers for your table flowers – Laura & Simon chose vintage style tins, which I love!
Little added touches like colourful jars, cute little straws and fairy lights dotted around will carry your theme through until the evening, without costing a fortune!
