Beautiful Wedding Inspiration

Thanks to inspirational wedding blogs like Style Me Pretty, The Wedding Chicks, The Bride’s CafeWedding Bee and Snippet & Ink (just to name a few!) brides have amazing access to fabulous wedding ideas!  As a floral designer I think it’s so much fun when a bride comes to me with an inspiration board (or ten!) filled with swatches, samples & images that express a certain charm or elegance she wants to capture on her wedding day.  Brides and wedding planners alike are fortunate to have a plethora of current & eclectic wedding bloggers who share vintage, rustic, modern and formal events to admire & inspire!

You never know when inspiration will strike!  I got inspired by these white ‘Patience’ roses & lavender sweetheart roses when I heard them calling my name in the cooler at my wholesaler yesterday.  Garden roses are a classic, romantic choice for bridal bouquets and wedding work in general!  Use them alone for a simple, clean look or add greenery, berries or tendrils for some flow.

    I am not sure off the top of my head. I can see if my supplier can fill me and let you know!

    Ah-ha! I thought that might be the variety! They look pink in some photos and lavender in others, so I wasn’t sure. Thanks so much Alison!
