No two brides are alike, so shouldnt your flowers be as unique as you are? Floral design is a crucial element in setting the tone for your big day. From an artsy vibe to true romance, weve found five bouquets that make a statement.
The Bohemian BrideOur bohemian brides are in search of natural feeling floral, usually in soft tones, styled to feel as if the floral was hand-picked from someones garden. These brides desire a look that is woven together by a consistent theme, but isnt too perfectly matched.

The Romantic BrideA romantic bouquet can have softer colors and texture. I like to use fluffy flowers like garden roses, peonies, which are also traditional. They provide a lush, full look to show your romance in bloom!
The Artistic BrideThe artistic bride is looking for something unique but still very pretty. By using the classic white peonies next to the more unusual Orange Pincushion, she gets the best of both!

The Playful BrideThe playful bride isn't afraid to have a little fun when all eyes are on her! Monochromatic styles are always beautiful, but do tend to be more traditional. In addition to the bright colors, unique textures are key when designing a playful bouquet. We paired unexpected elements, like tropical proteas and safflowers, with mini callas and stock for a pretty twist on tradition! Finish it off with a striped ribbon and a bright satin wrap for a girlie, playful touch.

The Modern Bride
When creating a modern bouquet, we try to use large blooms to create a dramatic impact and texture. Also limiting the color palette to a few colors will help keep it bold yet clean.
