Alright, you guys! I just can’t get over the dark moody florals I’m seeing this season. Our last round up was all about white pumpkins and was so nice and bright, but I have been itching to get back to the dark side. I’ve rounded up some beautiful bouquets that are either completely dark and moody or have some serious pumps of dark that bring such character to lighter bouquets. Ready to swoon with me?
LEFT TO RIGHT / TOP TO BOTTOM:
ONE: Is anyone here a SYTYCD or Dancing with the Stars fan? This is Whitney’s wedding bouquet… and it’s a STUNNER. That trailing foliage. *sigh*
TWO: Purples are one of those colours that play SO well with the dark and moody theme. This one’s wild and wandering shape is near perfection.
THREE: This bouquet is actually a light and neutral bouquet without the darker foliage. The deep hued leaves are such a simple way to play into the darks!
FOUR: I’m such a sucker for black centred anemones and this bouquet plays off the dark centres with some larger dark blooms. Also… those dark lips!
FIVE: This is the darkest I’ve found that doesn’t look a single bit tacky. It’s lovely in fact! So now you know you can go *almost* black in every sense of the word and still be lovely.
SIX: Did you know that succulents could be dark and moody? Oh, they totally can! And this beautifully organic bouquet is amazing. Period.
Do you have a favourite? I’m still swooning over Whitney’s. But those anemones are a close second.
It’s funny, we have spent years trying to perfect weddings- tailor them and take away anything that doesn’t look polished. But unpolished, unruly, and wild is making a total comeback! With florals, anyhow. And we’re head over heels with the trend. Ready to see some of the arrangements that our dreams are made of?
LEFT TO RIGHT / TOP TO BOTTOM:
ONE: The smaller blooms in this arrangement make allow room for more greenery and sprays. We love that all the texture is kept within a neutral palette and gets a touch of classic sensibility with a grosgrain ribbon.
TWO: This bouquet is freeform at it’s finest. It may not feature stacks of flowers, but each has room to breathe and make a statement. The trailing fabric ribbon is the icing on the cake.
THREE: I think we should almost make a round up of freeform florals on vintage wine barrels… because we’ve been seeing a lot of those too! But there’s a reason- they’re dang gorgeous!
FOUR: We love this wild footed arrangement full of blooms and twigs. This arrangement challenges what we’ve been seeing by omitting most greens!
FIVE: We love the whispy ferns this hand tied bouquet features. We’ve been seeing less and less wrapped arrangements in favor of natural hand tied.
SIX: This bouquet is wild at it’s loveliest! We love all the leaves, greens, sprays, and blooms this bouquet has to offer! It seriously has it all.
SEVEN: We had to include a simple wildflower bouquet in this roundup. This trend doesn’t say bigger is better (although we’ll never say no to more florals!).
Do you have a favourite? I’m really loving that giant bouquet right now.
Today we’re sharing some bright but soft, warm cheery hues for your wedding inspiration! We’ve paired a soft peach with yellow for some pretty wedding dreams. These colours are sweet as candy, but by including plenty of whites, the palette is also sophisticated. Ready to see the inspiration?
LEFT TO RIGHT, TOP TO BOTTOM:
ONE: There is nothing I don’t love about this bouquet. The giant peonies and tiny daisies… the perfect pair!
TWO: Talk about a stunning headpiece! We are dying over these big blooms. Would you dare?
THREE: Peach dresses and yellow bouquets make for a lovely bridesmaid combination. Plus- doesn’t everyone look great in a peachy hue?
FOUR: I am loving these soft brushstrokes! They give the perfect balance of colour and are pretty enough to dress up a simple text invitation.
FIVE: This cake is simple, white buttercream topped with blooms in the loveliest tones. There’s something about a simple white cake topped with florals that you can’t compete with.
SIX: This collection of wild blooms in tiny vessels look darling gathered around a vintage lantern. There’s those tiny daisies again!
SEVEN: So darn simple, but so pretty! Footed glassware filled with fresh peaches double as snack and decor.
Tell me- what do you love most about this collection? I am all over that bouquet! And the centrepiece. Maybe I’m just in love with those itty bitty flowers.
