While the UK Weddings Taskforce fight to push through changes for guest number limits to be lifted this spring, we know many of you are still planning to have a micro wedding in the coming months. If you’re embracing the beauty of an intimate wedding, then we have some lovely micro wedding flower ideas for you today from lovely Candice at So Blooming Beautiful.
Micro weddings can be so much more personal and allow you as a couple to spend more quality time with each of your guests. While weddings of the future may be smaller in attendance, couples can make them bigger in meaning.
We’ve featured some incredible bouquets on English Wedding in recent weeks – and with Valentine’s Day this weekend it inspired me to put a little collection together to inspire you! I’ve had a little whizz through our recent archives and found these stunning wedding flower ideas. There’s something for everyone – real flowers for every season, in every colour you can dream of. Some of our favourite bouquets are wild and flowing; others neat and pretty. There are bouquets with oodles of foliage; and some with simple blooms and statement flowers. And we’ve picked (pun intentional!) examples from florists around the UK to share with you today. I hope you fall in love with some of these – do Pin away if your Pinterest boards are ready for some floral inspiration!
I know this year’s been a rollercoaster for all of you – Covid has hit us hard, and we still don’t know how or when we’ll come out of this safely. 2020 sucks! I’ve kind of taken it upon myself to share as many micro wedding related ideas as I possibly can. Small, intimate and cosy weddings are magical, I promise. If you’re planning your day for 2021 perhaps it’ll be very different to the wedding you originally had in mind. But the wedding industry is adjusting: photographers are coming up with special packages for smaller weddings; stationers are creating all kinds of “new date” wedding invites – and today I’m thrilled to be sharing some glorious bouquets especially for intimate weddings. Which is your favourite?
This one’s for all of you lovely brides and grooms considering alternatives to the traditional wedding bouquet and arrangements. Inspired by a press release which landed in my inbox the other week – it was one of those where I disagreed with pretty much every word! – I just had to write a little about wedding flowers.
Too many couples – if the report is to be believed – think wedding flowers are overpriced (they’re not).
If there was another job I wish I could do – if I’d trained, had talent and wasn’t freaked out by spiders(!) or really early wake ups – I’d be a florist. I’d grow my own flowers and style beautiful, modern weddings in a wildflowery, informal and breathtaking boho style. I’m lucky to have gotten to know some amazing folks in the wedding flowers game since I started the English Wedding Blog, and Claire from Wild Spirit is one of the very best – her eye for styling is just spot on, every single time.
