Orly designed the flowers for Jill and John’s wedding at the State Room. The fiery oranges and deep purples made a beautiful color palette to design the flowers, especially for a fall wedding.

We worked with amazing vendors like the State Room, Unique Weddings by Alexis, Rentals Unlimited, Peterson Party Center, I Dream of Jeanne Cakes. We love that Bliss Celebrations featured one of our weddings, and we have a feeling that we are going to keep seeing this wedding pop up again here and there.

Kara and Tyler

We just received amazing photos from Jill at Person and Killian Photography of Kara and Tyler’s wedding of this past June at the Boston Harbor Hotel. This was truly a beautiful wedding and we loved designing the flowers for a couple who is so focused on design. Kara and Tyler, you were such a pleasure to work this. We wish you both nothing but happiness.

Edna from EFD-Creative planned this event — so talented. We worked with a number of amazing vendors, full list at bottom.

Energizing color

Looking for inspiration is our way of keeping things fresh in design. It’s a true life lesson — what bores you leads to a poor job. Easy for us that we love what we do, and even if we tried, we couldn’t have two days that are the same in this industry.

If you find yourself stuck today after the long holiday weekend, give your eyes something new to look at. We are pinning all sorts of cool things on our Pinterest page. Even stop by our boutique to see the curiosities we have to offer.

Inspiration: Bouquet Wrapping

A bouquet is never fully-dressed without wrapping the bouquet stems.

This finishing touch, usually made with ribbon, can be as simple or detailed as you’d like. A good place to start would be to ask yourself if you like the look of the stems showing, or not? Stems showing is the most popular today, fully covered is classic. Look below to some bouquet wrappings that we have been pinning to our inspiration board “Bouquets Wraps We Love.”

This bouquet is wrapped with lace for a vintage and romantic look. Other materials rather than ribbon are burlap, fabric from a unique garment, an organic item like grass, twine, metallic wire, the list goes on!

Tight on top, loose on bottom. Colorful on top, neutral on bottom. Busy on top, simple on the bottom. My mother taught me that whatever the relationship, everything needs balance. I always tell brides that if you want to make a statement in one place, make the surroundings neutral. A nice, ivory ribbon with simple beading is tasteful, clean, classic and suites a bouquet that makes a statement.

Neutral doesn’t have to mean ivory. It can mean plum, green, gray, black, cream, soft gold. The neutral color really depends on the color(s) it is supporting.

Match the wrapping with the style bouquet. If the flowers and shape are wild and playful, continue the look with the wrapping.

Neutral and classic on the top, have a little bit of fun on the bottom. With a classic bouquet, I would never go too crazy with wrap design, but it is fun to keep things interesting. This bouquet uses a mingling of two neutral tones quite nicely.

Ultra classic. To not have any stems showing on your bouquets says super formal, classic and polished. I picture this bouquet to be designed for a bride getting married at the Fairmont Copley Plaza.

This is a favorite of mine. It’s classic, romantic, and it can be really fun to match your dress if it has a corset.

If one of your wedding colors is turquoise and you are having a hard time incorporating the color without going overboard, using it as the color ribbon to tie the bouquets is a sweet touch.

Layered to create texture, enough said. Okay, this one may be my favorite.

Julia and Brian

Ooh, la, la! We received a surprise in our inbox yesterday afternoon when our bride from this weekend sent us sneak peak wedding photos from the ever so talented Lisa Ribgy Photogaphy.

Swoon. The MIT Chapel just makes me swoon. Reception was at the Commander’s Mansion in Watertown, MA.

Garden roses, lizzys, veronica, spray roses. Hellebore, eucalyptus, eucalyptus pods, clematis. (I almost want to sing to the tune of “These are a few of my favorite things.”) A mix of soft and bold colors really pop with a backdrop of an ivory dress and garden wedding.

And the cobalt blue bridesmaid dresses? Stop in the name of love, why don’t you! It’s so fun to see this color in weddings. The flowers with this blue make all too much sense. Actually, this reminds me of a time one of our brides wore cobalt blue….
