I met with the bride’s Mom, Dawn a few days ago to discuss flowers for her daughter Alyson’s wedding next year. Dawn had handmade some silk flowers in different pretty coloured ribbon and wanted me to incorporate them in her daughter’s bouquet. I thought this idea was adorable!
We decided on permanent flowers for the bouquets. Not only did the idea of permanent flowers seem to best match Dawn’s handmade flowers, it also allowed her daughter to see her bouquets while she was home visiting her mother for Thanksgiving.
I set up a mutual Pinterest board that the three of us, Dawn, Alyson and I could use to exchange wedding bouquet ideas.The guidelines for me to work within included incorporating both a rustic and vintage feel, use fall colours with out the typical yellows and oranges, incorporate burlap, Dawn’s flowers and other decorative items she provided.
Three days later I was at their door on Thanksgiving delivering the finished flower arrangements. Alyson was absolutely delighted with her wedding bouquet and also loved the added flowers that her Mother had made!
