Hey everybody, we are just coming down from our busy weekend. We had such a good time at With This Ring on Sunday and are proud to say that we won 1st place for our booth! We always love getting to chat with some of our fav vendors, meet new ones and of course get to meet some lovely brides – all of which we got to do! At the gala we actually showed off some of our new package bouquets (like our all white rose bouquet with the brooches we had at the fashion show!). We know how hard it can be to balance planning the beautiful wedding of your dreams and also stay within your budget. We have worked really hard to put together some packages for our brides that are budget friendly, very flexible to brides to adjust to their likes, while still looking super pretty. Today is the big day to unveil these packages! A super huge thank you to Lindsay Nickel Photography who was wonderful enough to take time to take photos of these for us to share with you all!

Basically we have left the packages very open so that brides can choose how many bouquets they want, we like to call them “Build a Bouquet”. They have 14 flower options to choose from for their bouquet, 6 collar options, 7 stem wrap options with a couple different add ons to give that personal touch. Any changes above and beyond the options listed will make it a custom order will quoted as such.

As we mentioned in our last post, How to Hold a Bouquet,  we spent this last Sunday at Engaged Bridal Gala. It was a pretty exciting day for us, we had so much fun designing everything, we were over the moon about our new floral table, and we also got to show off our new branding! There was a fashion show, Your Wedding Place had a pretty sweet sale going on and I hope that all the brides had a good time! If you did miss us, have no worry. We will also be at With This Ring Bridal Gala on September 27th at the Westerner with tons of floral goodies to check out. I won’t spend too much time blabbing away, instead I will let the photos speak for themselves. We were fortunate enough to have some people help out, all credits listed below. Enjoy!

Today’s monday mini tip is how to properly hold a bouquet. It may seem simple, but I can’t count how many times I have seen brides (real, models or actresses) carrying their bouquets wrong. This is important not only for the bride to know, but also her bridesmaids! If you have a wedding planner they may be able to help give you some pointers, otherwise you will want to know what to look for. To start off, you are really going to make sure that you are standing up tall, chin up, shoulders back, no staring at the floor. It doesn’t hurt to do a little practice walking in your dress and shoes so that you feel comfortable on the day of. Now, how to carry your flowers!

HAND TIED BOUQUETS

These are currently the most popular bouquet, a standard bouquet that is fairly round in fashion with the stems of the flowers having a decorative wrap. These are simple to hold, it should feel relaxed with the bouquet sitting at or just below waist level (around your belly button). Slightly angle your bouquet so that the grouping of flowers (the prettiest part!) can be seen better  by both your guests and the photographer.

CASCADING BOUQUETS

This bouquets are making a comeback! These bouquets can range in style from tight little tear drops to big, dramatic designs with greenery and blooms water falling down the front. These are typically designed into a foam bouquet holder with an angled handle to help make holding it a little easier. They are a little more challenging to hold as they can be fairly large in size and depending on product is used can also be on the heavy side. Again you will want to keep the bouquet around waist level and you may want to practice holding in front of a mirror to ensure that the cascading part of your bouquet is centered and being held at an angle that shows off the bouquet best.

SPECIALTY BOUQUETS

We are seeing a lot more fun bouquets that aren’t full on cascades, but have lots of overflowing greenery goodies with gorgeous shape and body. Or if it is a unique bouquet like an over the arm bouquet, flowers designed onto an item like a purse or fan, etc. These bouquets are different than hand tied or cascades and you will want to talk to your floral designer either during your consultation or at the time of pick up/delivery so they can explain and/or show you how to best carry it down the aisle.

The most common mistakes we see are bouquets being held MUCH to high (hint: your flowers should never be anywhere near your boobs) or cascading bouquets being carried at strange angles so that the flowers poke out awkwardly instead of gently flowing down. Taking a few moments to practice with your bridesmaids before the ceremony pays off! It is important to carry your bouquet properly so that you look relaxed, your beautiful bodice aren’t being hidden behind flowers, and so that your flowers look as beautiful as they should! There is no point paying for a stunning dress and gorgeous flowers if they aren’t being showcased!

I hope you find this Monday mini tip helpful and perhaps we will see you at the bridal gala in a couple weeks, so you can test drive some bouquets!
